From the editor’s desk
My yard looks like it’s recess time for squirrels, rabbits and every other little creature under God’s very green earth. Wow! Squirrels chasing each other — sometimes five or six at a time; rabbits sampling everything they can get their little teeth on; birds feeding lots of little open mouths and taunting the squirrels; and an occasional opossum or raccoon wandering through the backyard at night or scaring the be-jeebers out of me if I happen to be on the deck and they decide to meander across it after the sun goes down. Did I mention how the John Deere is getting quite a work-out this year ... when it’s dry enough to use it?
I know many have had water problems with all the rain we’ve experienced this spring, and aside from what has been ruined in the flooding, I know a lot of dollars have been spent to rectify the situations. On the flip side of that coin, though, I think we have to look at the devastation in Oklahoma and Missouri with the recent tornadoes that blew through those areas. In the scope of things, water in the basement doesn’t seem so bad, does it? I’m not saying that our water issues aren’t difficult, but those seem to pale compared to the loss of lives, injuries and complete sections of towns that have been destroyed. Please keep those folks in your thoughts and prayers.
