  • Way Back When

    10 years ago . . .
    Births announced this week are: Rex Mitchell Letcher, May 8, son of Tim and Traci Letcher; Mason Marshall Smiley, May 22, son of Terry and Stacy Smiley.
    A fire levels Benson United Methodist Church, Kelat. The fire was cause by a lightning strike. The church was 129 years old and was dedicated in January 1877.

  • Poison ivy, devious

    I’ve noticed more poison ivy this year than I recall in previous years.  
    Maybe I am more observant or maybe the farm is just weedier. Either way it makes people nervous.  
    I am not particularly allergic to this devious vine but Andy, my husband, will blister like being burned by fire whenever he comes into contact with it.  
    A few years ago we were trimming sheep hooves (sheep will eat poison ivy with no ill effects) and Andy inadvertently kneeled in some manure as we set to the task.
