Kudos to the Library Board members for their hard work on the library float. The float was awarded a red ribbon, Kate Gillespie was beautiful, and Lenore, the dogs, and the kiddos were all fantastic! Many thanks to you all! Also, they did it! Patrons finished the jigsaw—not just by Friday—but in only two days!

Another lazy summer week has gone in the books. When visiting with those in our community, most mentioned it was hot and they spent time watering their yard. Throw in some medical appointments and we were more busy than lazy. We were so happy to see Tad Leifeste in church Sunday.

We have had a wonderful last couple of weeks. Although the bats are not coming out until after 8:30 P.M. the emergence is breathtaking. We have had low visitation but the people that have shown up are thrilled with the bats’ performance. ( See the attached photo of a delightful group of Highland Lakes Master Naturalists who visited).

If you are feeling STRESSED OUT and FATIGUED, then you may need a supplement that supports the adrenal glands. The ADRENAL GLANDS help us handle stress and they make several important hormones that run many significant functions in our bodies. ADRENALINE is our “fight or flight” hormone, that helps speed up metabolism and helps the body cope with danger.

We had another nice turnout of Scramblers, fielding 20 golfers who were made up into 4 teams of 5 players each.  Promptly at 5:30, in 98 degree temperatures and a brisk South wind, the play began.  At the end of the round, the team of Jason McMillan, Josh James, Chuck Patrick, Richard Brown, and Mike Innis turned in the best score, a 7 under par.  Brent Drennan’s team came in second place with a very nice -4.  The other two teams were right in the mix, carding scores of -3.  As the tempe ...

It is certainly summer weather in the Hill Country. If you have tried to work outside in the past couple of weeks as I have been doing then you know just how hot it can be and how much sweat it takes to get anything done. One caution is to be careful that you do not overheat if you are outside, I try not to work more than a couple of hours in the sun on any one day and while it makes for less progress on my project I am trying not to overdo it and have greater problems.

George Gershwin’s 1934 lyrics about summertime “bein’ easy” don’t fit Texas this year, and Nat King Cole’s hit tune of the 1960s about the “lazy/hazy/crazy days” of summer is only one-third fulfilled. The “crazy” reference is a pretty close fit, with or without a wide-angle lens. For my purposes, I’ll soften the word to mean unlikely, unexpected or unusual.

Recently, in a column about the guy in Colorado Springs who decided to shoot his computer, I was planning to write about the pregnant woman in Folsom whose young son was bitten by a rattlesnake, and she tried to suck the venom out. Unfortunately, I ran out of space before I got to that story, or I would have commented on how commendable that was, although health officials now say you should never do that, unless you’re Brian Keith and you’re making a movie about mountain men.

Camp Me Maw is in session this week, so I’m busy. Camp hasn’t changed much in the last ten years, the supply of Root Beer and junk foods is still the main commodity. Although it’s more now. While I know that wholesome food is the best, junk food for a week isn’t going to hurt them.

As you know, we’re celebrating International Puzzle Day by trying to finish by Friday a jigsaw puzzle out in the foyer. But guess what? The whole month of July is National Anti-Boredom Month. Yes, July is not a time for being bored, but if you are, just visit the library.

JOINT PAIN or arthritis is the number one chronic illness in America. One person in 7 suffers from it. Many people are use GLUCOSAMINE, CHONDROITINS and MSM to manage pain and to supply building materials for joint repair. While these are very helpful, particularly with osteoarthritis, I would like to mention some other natural remedies for arthritis. DIET CHANGES can be as remarkable as any drug or supplement in eliminating joint pain and inflammation throughout the body.
