I can't believe it is fair week already. Hope everyone can come and enjoy the activities. We have been busy picking and digging our garden produce and getting it ready to show at the fair. Kyle and I have been doing some baking and making candy and I have also been busy making pickles, jelly and relish to show. Fun! Fun!

Last Thursday, Susan Greenfield and Jeanie Smith went to Holly to watch their girls play volleyball. Friday, they went to La Junta shopping and then back to Manzanola to watch the Eads football and volleyball teams play.

"He has made everything beautiful in its time." Ecclesiastes 3:11

That verse reminds me of the song Sylvia (Blooding) Weeks used to sing. One year at a Veteran's Day program at school as she sang the song, "Everything Beautiful in His Time" while her classmates passed out those words they had copied to slim sheets of paper to the students in the Assembly. In those years we also had skits on the Viet Nam topic and concerns of teenagers.

This weekend there is a major patriotic parade and program in Lamar Saturday,
