This was another busy weekend in our community. The Roundup activities were well attended. Our son Scott, daughter in law Crystal and granddaughter Megan spent the weekend with us. We all enjoyed the parade. The younger bunch enjoyed the rodeo and dance. Max and Jan Jordan are suffering the oak wilt blues.

Twenty eager golfers showed up for the 7/8 Scramble. Four teams of five players teed off under some rather warm and gusty weather conditions. In spite of these less than ideal conditions, some very nice scores were turned in at the end of the day. Brad Lehmberg’s team carded a -9 for the 9 holes, and that is one of the lowest scores anyone can remember seeing!

This year’s Round-up and Rodeo was a great success again, but now we are past it and into the hot days of summer. We are working around the City to get things back to normal and keep up with the usual projects and activities that need to be handled on a very regular basis.

I’ve never in my adult life gazed into a show window displaying women’s shoes. (Unless you count the time a sports page was blown flat against the glass.) My wife, on the other hand, could have written papers and completed multiple advanced college degrees if she’d given time equal to that spent looking at, trying on, purchasing, returning, storing, discarding--as well as looking for--shoes. In short, women are genuinely interested in shoes.

When I first began writing this column, I had no idea where I was going to go with it. It was like trying to walk a moth or my dog. That should be chasing my dog for miles. I know you’ve seen me running after this brown and white little dog that’s a cross between a Basenji and a Running Barker.

We had a really stong turn-out for the weekly Scramble. Even a couple of the “Brady Bunch” showed up to play with us. The 24 folks who signed up were split into 6 teams and teed off promptly at 5:30. By 7:30 the teams began returning to the club house with score cards in hand.

This was Charlie's grandmother's property.

Do you need NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENTS? If you eat a diet that includes products made with sugar and white flour, the answer is absolutely yes. Even if you eat a healthy diet, the answer is yes. FOOD CHOICES that include sugar, white flour, caffeine, sodas and not enough whole grains and fruits and vegetables don’t have the correct nutrients to begin with, and to make things worse, they deplete other necessary nutrients.

Sliding my canoe into the Buffalo River at Buffalo Point on 3 July, I wondered what I was getting into. Since I had never been to the Buffalo River before, I had no idea what to expect. Well, not specifically. I did expect the normal things you get on a river trip, such as bugs, and blistering sun, and getting sand in places where, quite frankly, sand does not belong.

Do you, or do you know someone who YELLS at the television set? We’re not talking a normal voice, we’re talking YELLING! Well, there are those who do this with much vigor. However, the person on the television show doesn’t care, cannot hear them and really wouldn’t care if they do.
