One day last week we had the air conditioner on and then the next day we turned it off and turned on the heater. That’s how long in between seasons around here, about 12 hours. I’m still hoping for a rain but we may get a big snow first.

Greg and Stephanie Bachmann had a special visitor this past weekend. Their granddaughter Everly came to stay. Her mom, Christy, and sister, Kendall Beck with Kendall’s horse Lil, took off across the state to a rodeo in Duncan. Kendall has been perfecting her roping skills for a few years and talked Greg into taking her to her first roping competition a few weeks ago in Woodward.

This has been a very nice week for us. The cool nights and mornings and not too hot during the day. Thankfully no hurricanes, prairie fires, floods, earthquakes or disasters. But we could use a nice soaking rain with no wind.

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?
