Friendly notes can really bring a smile when it is least expected. Lately, I have received a couple that made my day. Do you know someone you have not seen in awhile or heard from? Perhaps a friendly note will bring them a smile, too.

We received 3/10th of an inch of rain on Saturday. Hurray! Just a little, but every little bit is most welcome.

I hope everyone had a safe and happy 4th of July.
