    Hope everyone had a great week, Every week is great this time of year; though it is getting rather dry here in Cecilia this Tuesday as I prepare this column. Seems to be raining in spots, some getting quite a bit of rain and others hardly any. I always heard that was a sign of on oncoming drought. We don’t have any crops this year, not even a garden, but I hope others have an abundance.
