Chester and the chipmunk

Howdy folks!

I was talking to the Grants Farm and Greenhouse. They are planting mums for this fall. They are busy.

The Grants have three green houses. One is on Bucktown Road off state Route 50, five miles above Owensville. The green house on state Route 131 has plenty of vine-ripened tomatoes and cucumbers. The Grants farm has okra, yellow squash and zucchini to sell. These are grown on their farm. They have plenty of plants to sell yet.

On Father’s Day, it was special for me after church. I went to my daughter and son-in-law’s for lunch and my granddaughters and their husbands were there for lunch.

My great-granddaughter, Brooklyn, was eating black raspberries from Great-Grandpa’s garden. She would put one in her mouth then give one to me.

After the meal, all of us went down to the theater below Amelia. What a place that is! The movie “Inside Out” was playing. That is a good movie. I enjoyed it.

It was dark in the theater when we were leaving, so Brooklyn held my hand so I wouldn’t fall. She is wonderful! Ruth Ann was always so glad to be with her. One time when we were there, Brooklyn came running to Ruth Ann with her arms out wanting Grandma to hold her and give her a big hug and kiss.

The little hummingbirds are sure drinking plenty of the sugar water I put out. These are one of my favorite birds of all the birds.

Last week, I saw Chester walking behind a little chipmunk. It acted like it could hardly hop. Chester was probably two feet behind the little chipmunk. It had its head close to the ground and would hop maybe three inches each time.

I had some bags of mulch laying along side of the garage. Now the little chipmunk would hop a little closer each time towards the bag of mulch. There was some tall grass alongside the mulch. The little chipmunk, as it got closer, it could hardly hop. When he got within one foot, it shot towards the grass alongside the mulch. Chester had no chance of catching the little critter.

It is so amazing how these animals learn to survive. When we had the other cat, Chessie, she had a little chipmunk that looked like it was dead. Chessie would move away then run and jump on the chipmunk. I told Ruth Ann keep your eye on the little critter. I could see one eye open just a little bit.

When Chessie got just far enough away, the little critter came to life. Chessie had no chance of catching it and looked all over, even in the house. We laughed until we had tears in our eyes — how these critters survive.

The deer are helping me with the garden. I am going to need to put fence around the tomatoes and cucumbers. The hanging baskets of cucumbers I hung up have some blooms.

This morning, I hoed some tomatoes in the tractor tires and put some potting soil around them. Debby picked the first ripe tomato last Tuesday evening. She always gets the first one.

I had a dinner meal at Red Lobster last Tuesday with a couple of close friends — Mort and Barb. We got acquainted when Ruth Ann and I took the 20–20 program about 10 years ago. That was a good program for folks to get to know Clermont County better. There is so much to know about the county — East Fork Lake and Stonelick lake.

Start your week by going to the house of worship of your choice and praising the good Lord. God bless all.

More later.
