Farmers and their hay hurting for lack of rain

For those of you that remember Beatrice Smith, she has been in Putnam County Hospital for observation. She is Rassey Smithâ€™s sister. She grew up here and married Ed Smith who also was formerly from Buckhead.

I understand that the Beacon Heights Baptist Church had a night of music on Sunday. Jackie Wheat was there to add several songs that ministered to hearts. Jackie has a very talented voice.
It will be time very soon for Jacob Johnson to return to his home in Louisiana. His school will starter later. He has been with his grandparents, Chuck and Miriam Foster during the summer. He has enjoyed family and many new made friends. On Sunday night Mitchell Hawk had a swimming party, which Jacob enjoyed very much.
Billy and Jean Phillips went on a camping trip with a group of friends to Murphy, North Carolina over the weekend. Jean will be back at her job at the school system on Tuesday.
Almedia Smithâ€™s great-granddaughter that had the misfortune to get her feet and part of her legs cut off is beginning to be a little more aware of family. It is our prayer that she can soon be much better.

We had two and one-half inches of rain. There was a report of three inches on Saturday night. We thank God for the blessings. Our farmers are hurting for lack of rain. Many are feeding their hay regularly. I hope that there will be sufficient rain so that the farmers may be able to put up a good supply of hay.
The Rev. Bill Tribble filled the pulpit for both services on Sunday at the Buckhead Baptist Church. The Olinger family has been away in Alabama with family.
I tease about hitting my husband with my walking cane. But he did a jam up job by himself when he fell off the steps onto the concrete at an insurance agency. Now, folks, I did not give him that black eye that heâ€™s wearing. He was bruised up and got his black eye in the fall.
