The Renaissance Festival started this past weekend and runs to the first weekend in October. It’s open weekends only except for Labor Day which is a three day event and one Friday on September 30th. If your interested in going, we have free tickets. Call our office.

The grass mowing has started again with the recent rains. The forecast looks like we have plenty of opportunities for rain and storms in the next few days. Last Thursday night in Fulda we had a bouncy time with a little hail, switching winds and a lot of thunder. We could have a replay of that weather on Tuesday and the weekend.

“How could you possibly know that? We don’t even subscribe to the paper.”

“Yeah, that’s probably got something to do with it, too.”
