If you are interested in joining or helping this group, contact Ellen Hall at 812-582-2928. Winslow Patoka River is low to about half empty, but it should rise some since the rain and showers we have had last week total two or more inches. Some- times when we get rain, there is no thun- der, but two days we also heard the rum- blings in the SW to the SE of Winslow. Laura gets to go storm watching as she goes to work and she got a couple of good shots as it left Washington, head- ing to the Loogootee area. The rose bushes look proud as they show off their booms of red and the pink tea roses are showing their color. The daylilies have opened their yellow blooms and the lilies of several types are showing their stems. Rose of Sharons have leaves, the white peonies still have blooms, the ferns are bigger than ever and so green in color. The house flowers are doing great from the cold spell of 40s for a few nights. I was afraid I killed them all this time. There are quite a few yards that have the old types of flowers and if you're in town, check out Janie's yard on Brenton Street. Then check out lots more yards in our small town of Winslow. An update on the Patoka River, it is now almost to the rim as of last Thursday. The temps have been cool enough to keep those win- dows closed since they were in the low to middle 70s, with our night temps in the 50s. Then, they climbed into the 60s. By Thursday, the windows were open and the furnace turned down again, but in Southern Indiana, the weather changes at the drop of a hat. Last week, I saw several of my cousins and Don showed me a picture of three girls about 9 or 10 years old, and we all tried to make out where the picture of Kelly, Laura and Tiffany was taken. Since we have two reunions, we decided it was at Hornady Park after the tornado swept through Petersburg. This past weekend, with Memorial Day, brought out many of our stars to put flowers and flags on your loved ones graves at many cemeteries. Norm and I took on this yearly task, since sickness was with others. We have family at Sun- set Cemetery and Francisco Cemetery. We also honored our loved ones who fought for our country in service to keep us all safe and free. This weekend was also a time where we saw people mowing their lawns in between the rains to have the yard ready for the graduation, birthday and official start of summer with family and friends par- ty. Norm mowed our yard as well. Our neighbor had a get together with family and they played a game of cornhole. Tim and Jeanette went fish- ing and Tim caught some nice big fish, but Jeanette had to throw back a mama with eggs, a small fish, but a wa- ter snake brought her a fish, not once but twice. Since it was a lovely day, we took a drive to Terri Ann's house to drop off Mom's medicine for another week and on the way, we listened to the 105th running of the Indy 500 race on the radio, where now four-time winner Helio Castronev- is won. Later that night, on T V, the Co- ca-Cola Charlotte 600 race was won by Kyle Larson, who is also with the team of Hendricks Motorsports. They won their 269th race. Another of our neighbors had family over, where you saw children play- ing and saw lights travel in all directions shining up in the sky. We stopped to see David and Tina at Temple Hills before we headed out to see more of our Indiana countryside. We were in the counties of Dubois, Spencer, Warrick and back into Pike, where we traveled on paved roads that went through lots of farmland of corn and watermelons. These roads al- so led us into the bottoms at times, with a few houses dotting the areas, then small towns like Tennyson, Hatfield, Christ- ney, Rockport, Old SR 66 into Yankee- town, then into Boonville. The animals along the way were two deer along the side of the road, several small animals on the road and at Winslow Riverside Park, a flock of geese were eating. The 57 Bones Family has the Olympic rings behind them as they are waving to every- one, I believe, with their gold, silver and bronze medals on. Some stars have said we are always go- ing somewhere and that's fine, but just to get out and drive, even to see someone, or to a park, or out for a milkshake helps a person not to get stir crazy around the house, and I'm talking about me. The gas prices have gone up, but we spend about $20 to see our countryside and even less if we don't leave Pike County. All the changes you can see and you meet nice stars who wave at you along the way. Sometimes, we stop and eat somewhere. But best of all, you see places you only heard about. Well the lights are about begin to dim on this week. Keep an eye on family and friends. Keep wearing your mask to keep others safe. Slow down and enjoy your area of this big world. As always, smile, wave and say "hi" to everyone you see this week.
