I received a nice e-mail this morning from our daughter Alice in Baltimore. She said that her neighbor plans to spend the summer building a new deck off the back of his house. His wife thought it would be a lot of work, but she hasn't noticed any so far.
Police Chief Wilkins came into the hardware store yesterday afternoon. He said he has decided he needs to downsize his kennel of hunting dogs, especially the females. He has so many new litters right now that he's threatening to start handing out puppies instead of traffic tickets.
Saturday will be busy at the fairgrounds. There's a sheep sale and shearing contest in the morning. Then they have to get things cleaned up for the summer events committee's outdoor movie night. I'm told they successfully patched the leak in the inflatable screen. On the last movie night, the screen started sinking before the Titanic did.
And that's what's happening in Hoake's Mill.
