Last week's Summer Thursday was rather a washout. Probably because I finally gathered some things together and was going to set up in town. Oh, well, I will try again Thursday of this week.

I was very happy to get a break from the humidity. It is difficult to get yard work done under those conditions. On a good note, the garden is doing well.

Hello to Lorraine Rich, who reads The Journal online in sunny Florida. So good to hear from old friends.

Donnie Bagley is in rehab, I believe at Mount Saint Joseph, as I have received calls from that number, with no message. I have tried to return the calls to no avail. Donnie, if you see this, please leave a number to call you back at.

The recycling center notified residents this week that they can no longer accept glass at the UARC in town. Hopefully they will be able to find another buyer.

Dirigo Grange will host a pie contest Saturday, Aug. 17, beginning at 11 a.m., followed by an afternoon pie party from noon until 2 p.m., which will be $4 per person with your choice of pie and beverage. Pies must be dropped off between 9:30 and 10:30 a.m. on the 17th.

Judging will be done in two categories: fruit and berry, and custard and cream. $10 and a blue ribbon for the first-place winner in each category, and the second- and third-place winners will each receive ribbons. Pies should be on disposable pie plates. If you wish to pick up your pie after the judging, please let them know when you present it. Proceeds will go to their well fund.

Dustin had another great visit with Papa Dixon. It keeps him busy remembering stories to tell Papa on his next visit.

Rosa Parks is quoted as once saying, "Knowing what must be done does away with fear."

Have a great week and get back on your exercise routine.

Hello to Patty Banker. I hope you are feeling much better.
