    Evelyn 'E.T.' Trevathan, Contributing Writer|Jun 23, 2022

    Well it is a beautiful and cool morning here in our little valley. It is 55 degrees and not a cloud in a beautiful sky. I have got my coffee and I am enjoying the swing on the front porch.

We have been hearing the old John Deere tractor early in the mornings and late in the day. Our neighbor has been cutting that hay while the sun shines. They brought us a big bag of squash and...

  • Tyrades! Should "eyes up here" be enforced?

    Danny Tyree|Jun 23, 2022

    “Did you know that your rear passenger tire is a little underinflated?” I harbor a grudging appreciation for a potentially life-saving hint like that. I mean, it makes me feel like an IDIOT that I can stare at the tire, repeatedly kick it and still need a gauge to verify what someone standing 150 yards away in a hailstorm recognized immediately; but I do swallow my pride and express gratitude. Not so much with “Hey, you got your ears lowered” and other impertinent observations. I suffere...
