Howdy folks!

Last week was a busy one for me. I went over to Jerry’s to get some cedar lumber. He has different kinds of lumber; if you need any give him a call. His cell phone number is 513-200-7564. He has his own sawmill. He sure does a good job of sawing – not thick and not too thin.

When I plane the lumber, it is so easy to go through the planer. I like the cedar. It has a great smell and is easy to work with. Jerry has just about any kind of lumber you may need. He has some walnut that is over 75 years old and is in good condition. If you need that walnut lumber, give him a call. He can take his sawmill to your place. As I said, he has all kinds of lumber, some that has dried for years.

Last week my daughter Pauline, her husband Ralph, and grandsons Ralph, and his wife Kayla, and Curtis, and two great-grandsons took me to O’Charley’s restaurant. The evening was wonderful. Any time you can spend time with your grandchildren is wonderful.

The two great-grandsons were good. Little Ralphie will be having a birthday in the near future. The baby, Leland, likes for you to stand him up and talk to him. He will smile then he tries to talk. Of course, he can’t talk but he gets excited anyway. He is so cute.

Last Sunday, from 1 to 4 p.m., the cabin at the Gauche Park in Owensville was open. There were folks having a picnic in the shelter house so some of them came and took a tour of the cabin.

There were three of the members there: Edna Mae, Maggie and me. These folks read the Ole Fisherman articles and were very excited to have a tour of the cabin. After these folks were told where the cabin came from, a feller knew some of the folks who had lived in the cabin before it was moved.

There is a museum that the Owensville Historical Society has and there can be tours set up if you are interested in history. Come join the group. There are plenty of items to view in the museum and cabin. If you would like to join, give me a call at 513-734-6980. I will get you to the person that will give you plenty of history of the cabin and museum.

While we are talking about museums, there is one in Bethel that is a very interesting museum. There are displays of how to make butter, antique guns and other items. The membership is only $5 per year, three years for $10 or lifetime membership is $50. This museum has been in the Grant Building on the corner lot between state Route 133 and state Route 125. The museum is open on the first and third Saturday of each month so stop and tell the folks that are in charge how you like the museum and join or make a donation.

The hanging baskets I wrote about that I was trying – well they are producing cucumbers. I have picked a couple and there are more setting on. It looks like that might be a good thing.

The sweet potatoes I planted in a five-gallon bucket are sure growing good. I picked the first zucchini this week. The mushmelon plants have some little ones on the plant and lots of blooms.

The “maters” are starting to ripen. I picked two last evening. The Grants are picking maters, cucumbers and have lots of plants yet to sell so go to the one on Bucktown Road off Route 50. The other two are at Milford and on state Route 131 above Williams Corner. They have the big bed of tomatoes there and they are picking plenty of them.

I hope you had a good 4th of July. It was quiet here. I helped at the Kitchen of Hope at the Bethel Methodist Church. We had over 50 folks that came to eat. That is wonderful. They had a good meal. It is good to do the Lord’s work. The folks who work at the Kitchen of Hope are sure in touch with the good Lord and are to be blessed. Thank the Lord for these folks.

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

More later.
