The driveway to the new garage now has white rock from the road to the garage.  The man completed the job last week.  I have finished the shutters.  They make the house look much better.  I also painted the front screen door.  It also looks very good.

This morning I went over in Tennessee and bought some bucket seats for my old truck.  I have been looking for some for some time.  I found the kind and color that I wanted, so I bought them.  I will put them in some time in the future, no rush.

Last night we had some rain and some very loud thunder and bright lightening.  The news said that there was some damage in the county.  I saw none around our home.

Not much new here in Iuka.  I have been working a little in the yard everyday.  I have completed all of the clearing that I plan to complete on this property.  I have a little over one acre of our two acres cleared out.  I cut all of the vines and briers from the property and some of the small trees.  Very few of the small trees.  I can now keep it looking good with the mower and the weed eater. 

Last week I had a load of white rock delivered and spread in front of my garage.  I have also ordered enough white rock to have a hard surface from the garage to the county road.  It will take about four loads of rock.  The man who does this for me thinks that he will do the job this week or next.

Yesterday and today I worked on the shutters for the house.  I have four of them painted.  I only like eight more.  It will take several days to complete the job.  I have to take them down, clean them, prime them,  and then put at least two coats of the final color.  I then have to install them.  I can do all of the painting it the garage where it is cool with the AC.

SUNDAY JULY 15, 2012

One year ago was my last day as Mayor of the City of Wynne.  It does not seem like a year has past.  It has been a good year for me.  I miss not living in Wynne and not being Mayor, but it was a good decision and I have never questioned my decision.  I enjoyed serving as Mayor and the changes that took place while I served the citizens of Wynne.

We have had rain almost every day for the past week.  The grass is green again and everything look very good.  The temperature has dropped the past week and it has been very nice not having the 100 degree days.

It has been hot in Iuka for several days.  The yards are dead and the trees and flowers look very bad.

I have just about finished by garage.  I have completed the inside.  I like a few pieces of trim on the outside.  I can not do that without help.  Pat's brothers are going to help me finish the job when the weather gets a little cooler.

Amy had six days off starting last Saturday.  She came home on Saturday and stayed till yesterday afternoon.  She enjoyed being here and not having to go to work.  This is the first time she has had time off since she started work last May.  She plans to take some vacation time next week, but she is going to fill in for one of her friends so he can take a few days off.

Yesterday I cooked hamburgers and hot dogs on the grill.  Most of Pat's family came out and ate.  We had a very good meal and enjoyed visiting with each other.
