What a week this has been! On Tuesday the temperature fell to 46 degrees and stayed cool and rainy till Thursday. I kept thinking about an old Jerry Clower joke about moving February in between July and August. It was just a short month and always cold and miserable and the summers were so long and hot and he thought that was a very good idea. So this was the Okie version of an ole Miss tall tale.

The Durham Willing Workers Club began their new club year on Tuesday, September 1. The first order of business was the pecan sales again this year. We will probably order less than we ever have. The order goes in on October 6. The price is still $10.00 a pound. There are lots of other specialty nuts, chocolate covered pecans, chocolate covered peanuts, walnuts, almonds, pistachios. They are all onepound bags and twelve to a case. So, get with a friend and see if they want to go in with you and share a case. They sure make good Christmas gifts. We order early and get our shipment early. All the pecans are new crop and whenever harvest is over that is when we get the order.

Big Foot has found my chicken house! That’s what I first thought one morning when I went to let my chickens out. The screen was ripped off except for one little corner and there was claw marks and the plastic around the bottom of the other window had big holes.

I don’t know any news, or anything newsworthy. I don’t even suspect anything. When I worked at the post office in Durham every morning the carrier out of Canadian, W.L. Robinett, when he got there, would always ask, do you know anything?

The Durham Quilting Bees had regular quilting on Thursday. We quilted for Barbara Hawkins. She had a beautiful veterans quilt with an intricate half triangle of white and flag designs arranged into stars and set together with red and blue batiks.

HOT HOT HOT. Hot and windy that’s the only news I know. I’m so ready for fall and cooler temperatures. I will report on the mystery seeds I gave to some of my neighbors. Little did I know that China was going to send out obnoxious seeds to unsuspecting people.

The Durham Quilting Bees sure had a fun sew day on Tuesday, the 28th. It is sure good to catch up on the local happenings. I have decided to make a suggestion that we start charging by the day for women to attend our work sessions. There is just some- thing about setting around a quilt and conversations that take place that solve all the worlds problems, marital problems, child raising, education, cooking, and local news. The hum of a sewing machine, scissors cutting through fabric, the steaming hiss of a really hot iron and the whispered conversations about any topic, and then the laughing out loud at the drop of a hat over some silly something that every- one wants to share. Yes it is always a fun sew day no matter how many or how few of us there are.

It has finally happened. The one thing I didn’t think I’d ever have to write in local Roger Mills County news. The Security State Bank at Hammon was robbed at gunpoint by two blacks! There has not been one other detail released.

We got 1.4 inches of rain Wednesday night. We were sure needing it. The 100 degree plus days are miserable.

Happy 20th Anniversary to Sy and Neva Churchill. The Baptist Church crowd was down. There are quite a few on vacation.

The quilting on Thursday was a very good day! It’s not just about quilting but we did almost finish the big flag quilt for Janna Montgomery. She said it will be donated to a veteran.
