Surprised by summer — again
Summer snuck up on me — again. It happens every year.
I should recognize signs that it’s approaching. After all, I have a calendar.

Will you be truly happy if you win the lottery?
A Psychology Today article titled “What Will You Do if You Win the $550 Million Powerball Lottery?” caught my attention. Helping lottery winners with their money is my long-time gig.
The author, Galen Guengerich, Ph.D., is a minister who admits that he has “never been much of a lottery person.” He makes a point that I hammer on in two bestsellers, “Life Lessons from the Lottery” and “Son of a Son of a Gambler: Winners Losers and What to Do When You Win the Lottery.”
Taking charge of your life: The Transition to self-employment
Do you dream about the day when you will be able to quit your job and start your own business?
Do you envision the awesome new office space and state of the art equipment you'll have to work with?
Can you picture yourself driving a brand new vehicle with your own company's logo on it?
A Rose is a Rose is a Rose
I don’t know what you think about when someone mentions the month of June, but I certainly know what is on my mind at the very mention of that particular month.
I have six, hardy Knock-Out rose bushes planted along the front of my house. Red. They all bear the most beautiful red roses you have ever seen.
The time is going faster as each day passes
What a glorious Tuesday morning, near this last of May ...
There is a soft breeze out with lots of sunshine for the day ahead and it looks like we’ll have temps in the 80’s all week, and we sure could use some rain on all what we have in the garden. Doug and I have some tomatoes, peppers and cabbage out, but we still have time to get it all in the ground.
Roses are in full bloom and the peonies are just the very prettiest I’ve noticed in a long while.
A busy time in Baldwin
Hello from Baldwin,
How’s everyone’s week going? I hope everyone is having a great week. It’s a busy time in Baldwin, lawn mowers and weed eaters are buzzing as neighbors are cutting and trimming their yards. Farmers are beginning to mow hay fields and will soon be busy raking and rolling it. It looks like the hay fields are nice and thick this year. The livestock will like that hay in the winter when it is cold and the wind is blowing and the snow is falling.

Farming time in Kirksville
Hello everyone. The rain has stopped and it is farming time. I have been working in my hay. It is cut, raked, rolled and “ricked” up. I now have a farmer’s tan. Oh great, I have the hospital banquet tonight. The price you pay for being a farmer. I love it.
I have really been busy. I have been picking strawberries. I put a few plants out a few years ago, and now I am reaping the rewards.
What a weekend! Graduations, trips, memorials, visits, company ... no wonder we’re worn out (but a “good” worn out, right!) Congratulations to all graduates -- kindergarten, high school, college, etc. You make us very proud of your accomplishments!
