    KENTUCKY WEATHER. It’s getting warmer. I think most gardens are prospering well. Dad’s neighbor, Chris, has brought him some nice tomatoes, squash and cucumbers from his garden.

    Well school is back in session and we need to watch for those yellow school buses and the children who are loading and unloading. What precious cargo those drivers take responsibility for; I admire their courage.
