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.

We sure did enjoy the Red Steagall show on RFD on Monday evening about Peter McCue. Thanks to the meticulous and detailed research of Dale and Judy Tracy there is a fantastic article on the Roger Mills GenWeb detailing the life of Milo Burlingame and his family while they lived in Cheyenne.

Durham has finally received a little bit of measurable moisture. Friday and Saturday was much cooler and a few showers but Sunday during the night it finally broke loose and hailed and really poured and we had a good soaking rain. We had an inch and three tenths but some of the neighbors on south got two inches.

Summer has arrived. Wheat harvest is in full swing. It sure felt like the devil was dancing on Tuesday. The winds were gusting up to 65 mph and there was dirt in the air. I heard one farmer’s wife say we were almost half done and the humidity was ok but the static electricity was so bad we didn’t go to the fields because just one spark and the whole countryside would go up in flames.

We sure had a storm on Thursday evening. We only got pea sized hail, but the wind was terrible. We ended up with a little over an inch and a half of rain. It came down so hard that our road was packed, and it had no mud.
