Brashear News 07/23/2014 by Debbie Young

Summer heat has arrived. I am so glad it hasn’t reached 100 maybe one time so far. Take it easy because heat stroke can creep up on you real quick. Out for a little run this morning, and just FYI, the morning are awesome. Nice and cool. Brashear is growing, specifically here on CR 1119. Don and Betty Beard are here and loving our small town.

Can anyone remember the last time it was this cool in July? I was so thankful for the cool front that came in last week. It was great to get the rain and a least a few days of the milder-than-normal temperatures. I believe that I heard on the news that we broke a record for the coolest temperature for this time of year. I hate to see it leave but I know it is the dead of summer, so unbearable heat is to be expected. Sunday afternoon I...

Monkey Blood, July 24, 2014, # 1342

Ivan Eftink and some of his family come down from Missouri each winter to hunt hogs with me. Recently I got a text message from him asking if I ever heard of the antiseptic mercurochrome called by any other name. Sure, all we ever called it was monkey blood.
