Continuing our theme from last week, when we explored the history of the names of Wayne, I thought I would move to my hometown this week.
Wednesday, June 12, 2019
Hello all, I hope your week has been well. Mine certainly has, even if it has been rainy and dreary lately. Oh well, it's technically still springtime and that is to be expected. Luckily, we've gotten most graduations out of the way, so we don't have to worry about the rain ruining those.
If you are anything like me, every year you look forward to fresh cucumbers and tomatoes, corn on the cob with dinner and browsing the selections of home-grown produce once it hits stands in early summer.
