Spooner Advocate- Springbrook Column - August 28, 2014

Good day friends- Are we enjoying this weather? It sure is strange isn't it? The rainstorm last night was nice and it sure was muggy out there yesterday! I sure hope that no one had bad weather as there were tornado warning out for some of our counties as well as MN. I am not fond of tornadoes- been in one to many dangerous ones!
How are the gardens coming? Seems like everything is late this year. Plus some things have been washed out and will not becoming back! Any canners out there? I hope I am not the only one! I would like to make some corn cob jelly- I know it sounds weird but hey I want to see if I can use all the product up. Anyone else out there ever eaten this or made it?  If you  have extra produce I hope you share it with friends.

Dave Parker from the Springbrook VFW gave me a call to let everyone know about Springbrook Days! They are being held Saturday, August 30th in the town of Springbrook. The VFW will have a slip and slide, bouncy house, and they would like to do a parade again. The VFW will be having a BBQ Pork Feed from 12-2 or so.... Adults are $8.00 and kids are $5.00. This is always a really good time, so come out and show your local area your support!If you have questions or would like to sign up to be in the parade please give the VFW a call at 715-766-2128
My U of M-Duluth Bulldog will be leaving soon! We are busy packing and man it is kind of hard. Been with this snotty nose kid for so long I wonder what it will be like to live by myself! LOL Of course I am not by myself with all the animals I have, but still not all of them walk around saying mmmaaaaaaa this and mmmaaaaa that! She leaves on Thursday so please keep us in prayer.
Good luck to all the Hayward and Spooner graduates that are going on to school or working! I hope this is a great time in your life!  Please be safe as you go out into the big world, ask for help if you need it and enjoy it! You are only this age once!
