It is nice to get rain, but I am ready to stop mowing. I noticed the days are starting to shorten. If you plan to do anything after 8 pm, you had better do it in a hurry or it is dark.
I notice that trick- or-treat candy is starting to show up in stores. I hear that we may not have that for the children this year but how can anyone stop it if we want to do that at our houses?
Don’t forget to continue to feed the hummingbirds, they will not be heading south until October.
R.D. Willis, who I think is a fine young man, was doing his usual thing helping others when he was hurt Saturday morning at a rodeo in Durant where his two children were competing. A child was thrown from a bull and was being drug. R.D. was able to save the child but got hit by the bull in his stomach. He ended up spending the night in the hospital and will be down for a while. Knowing him, he will not stay down long.
Don’t forget, if you are like me and did not do a garden this year, you can get fresh vegetables on Saturday morning in Atoka at the Farmer’s Market in town. It is located in the parking lot South of the Penn and A Church of Christ.
On these hot days it is too hot to cook so try this easy and delicious salad.
1 Chicken or four skinless chicken breast cooked and diced.
1 cup sliced green grapes
1 cup chopped celery
2 T finely chopped onion
1 cup coconut
1 cup mayo
1 T. curry powder
Just before serving, top with 1 cup of cashews.
If you are like me and live by yourself, I just buy a can of chicken, drain it good, chop it up, and then add half of the ingredients. Be sure you add the curry powder, it does give it a unique taste.
All my news for this time. See you next week, the Lord willing.
If you have a child in Lane School and they are busy with ball games, be sure you go see that child play.
