Wet, Wet! Praises galore for all the rain everyone has received over the past few weeks. Just keeps getting better as the ground gets some much needed depth to the moisture. Then all these showers continuing to add more and it is finally pretty general all over so it does a lot of good.
I know some who got a wee bit of heat on Saturday and Sunday and others who have not had their air conditioners on for a few days. When I left Dora Sunday after church my car showed the temperature at 65, then about the bus stop at S. Roosevelt Road 13 on highway 202 it read 64 and I came off the hill out south it came down to 63, so it was two degrees cooler in Portales than in Dora. Sure was a nice weekend being cool for a change.
There will be a wedding shower for Julie Davis of Rogers and Brandon Dewbre of Milnesand on Aug. 21 at 2 p.m. in the Dora Community Building. Brandon is employed by the Prewetts and lives on their ranch. Julie is a graduate of Dora High School and helps her dad some in construction. Everyone is invited.
