Spooner Advocate- Springbrook Column- July 10, 2014

Good day friends-The sun is out and there is a breeze. This is good being we are suppose to heat up and well I am not looking forward to that! The weather sure has been up and down so I am hoping everyone has survived the storms without getting to many trees down! The winds sure have been crazy! Hope the gardens are growing good.

Mikhaila's graduation party went well. We had it over in Minnesota so that the family would not have to come all the way over here. We both enjoyed visiting with our guests and just visiting! Mikhaila loved all the cards and gifts she has been receiving! Thank you all for taking the time to some to the party, visiting, or sending a card! We appreciate it!

So here is a question for all of you... who reads the Farmer's Almanac? Which one do you read? I usually go with the 
Old Farmer's Almanac from Robert B. Thomas, started in 1792. It seems like alot of people read and prefer this one. Any input on this? Why do people like this one better? Is it more accurate? I recently purchased the Harris Farmer's Almanac first published in 1692. I got it for the articles in it, also they did not have  the Old Farmer's Almanac. In the Harris almanac they had a great story about a dog that had been adopted from an animal rescue (he was recycled by getting a  new family) and then he has learned to pick up bottles and plastic to be recycled. It was a great story which always touches my heart as most of our animals are ones that have come to live with us after having other owners. Anyway if you want to go check out more on the dog in the article go to www.

Thank you for the call from the folks in Earl that may have seen our cat! I will be coming through there to see if I can find her. Cats are so elusive, they do not feel the need to check in and they have their own agenda!  If anyone could catch her that would be wonderful! LOL Any info, please give us a ring.

Can you believe it is July!!!! Where has the time gone?? If you are born this month I hope you enjoy having a birthday that is warm, sunny and where there are alot of flowers and plants growing! The rains have helped green things up that is for sure! Have a wonderful birthday and I hope it is happy and that you do something fun! My niece Felicia has a birthday this month, my friend Hailey Olson has a birthday as well- I hope each of you young ladies has a beautiful day!
