Sis was asked by Rev. Glenn Ribelin to help out with a special prayer service at Fosters Chapel Church. He asked Sis to get the congregation together and all pray for rain, as the drought was hurting a lot of farmers. Sis asks the entire congregation to gather in the church yard at 3 p.m. that Sunday afternoon. As Sis was about to start prayer services, she looked the crowd over and said: “You faithful brothers and sisters have come this afternoon to pray for rain, but I don’t see an umbrella in the crowd!!”
Emma Lee Fincher over in the Cross Keys area is going to be grandmaw on the 19th. We wish for that family a healthy and strong baby boy. We will keep you informed and have a picture as soon as the little “Crumb Snatcher” arrives.
Did you know that on Tuesday, July 24, 1969, the U.S. spacecraft had taken the first astronauts to the surface of the moon and landed safely back on Earth? Now, you know.

Taking A Tumble
Our friend and neighbor, Mrs Jimmie Yount went to the mail box which is mounted on an antique plow, somehow, her shoe got tangled up in the hook on the plow and sent her sailing to the ground. Better get Cecil to fix that trap!!
