Grange booth at fair dedicated to Ruth Ann

Howdy folks!

The Clermont County Fair is in full operation now. The Grange booths have been put in and are beautiful. Especially one-the Pomona Grange booth- which has been dedicated to Ruth Ann. It was great she was a dedicated Granger for 60 years. Ruth Ann was dedicated to the Junior Grangers – the children five to 14 years old. The juniors would make projects then we took the winner’s projects to the state convention. It was always great to look at the juniors projects and Clermont juniors always were in the winning section with their projects. Ruth Ann always put her heart in the Grange projects. We were married for 53 years. Those were the best years of my life. She was a great cook and baker. She could bake the best blackberry cake you ever ate. The cake was always donated to the Clermont Senior Services for the event in September and, when sold, the price for the cake brought between $1200 and $3000. This was a donation from both of us. She was a wonderful wife and mother for our two girls, Debby and Pauline. She loved our grandchildren and great-grandchildren. I know she is in heaven with her dad and mother. I will be there with her someday. I want to thank Linda and the Grangers for this honor to Ruth Ann. This was a surprise to me and what an honor for Ruth Ann. Both of us were the Grand Marshals for the fair parade a few years ago – thanks.

Last Saturday I went to my great grandson’s birthday. He was three years old and he has a brother that is four months old. Both are special grandchildren. Ruth Ann would have been very proud of the baby.

Now about Chester—he has been playing and sleeping on the top of the bed headboard that Ruth Ann and I built. The headboard for our bed and the top rail is wide enough for Chester to sleep on it. If I move he looks down at me. This is something new for him to do. When I get up he wants his breakfast first, so then I get my breakfast. Then make coffee.

The Boars Head Bait Shop in Afton will be having an event for diabetes. This will be starting at noon, Sunday, Aug. 22, and will continue until dark. There will be music – one band will be the Kinner’s Express. They are good. Also there will be food, fried fish, and split the pot. Mike always does these events for different organizations. He is to be thanked. The crappy tournament held last Sunday had 10 boats in it. The first place winner with seven crappy was five and one-half pounds, second place five pounds four ounces and third was five pounds. The big crappie was over one pound. I haven’t got to go fishing yet but one of these days. I miss my fishing partner. I have crappy in the freezer yet so I can have fish to eat.

The Grants Farm have fresh corn now so stop and get some. It will be great. They also have plenty of other vegetables. Danny told me they will have broccoli plants ready to set out in a couple weeks. I like to put the broccoli plants in the ground the middle of August. The fall broccoli I think tastes better than the early ones. A couple years ago in the fall I cut the last of the broccoli. The next morning I saw the deer had eaten the stocks to the ground. So I said “I beat you this year!”

Now mark your calendar for a special event. This is special– the Pierces are celebrating their 50 year anniversary. That will be Friday, Sept. 4. This is early notice but gives you time to mark your calendar for the special event. These two folks, Sherry and Charlie, are wonderful people—they always meet folks with a big smile. They are so great – Charlie helps his son and daughter operate the 360 Auction. Sherry does too.

The hummingbirds are sure eating plenty of sugar water. I have two feeders and eight hummingbirds so I fill the two feeders about one time each day. They are my favorite birds. I buy a big bag of thistle feed every three weeks for the Goldfinch, purple finch and some Cardinals. These are beautiful birds so I don’t mind the extra expense. I like to see them.

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

More later.
