Food and fireworks
It didn’t look good for the Burlesons’ 4th of July fireworks.
We drove to Alabama Thursday, shortly after noon, and our only assignment for the celebration was to purchase fireworks en route to Hamilton.

Bug bite remedies!
Summertime in the South means chiggers, ticks, mosquitoes, wasps and many, many more assorted bugs of every variety.
Editor Barry Burleson stopped at a convenience store Tuesday morning on the way to work and the clerk asked him to put something in the paper about what you can do for chiggers! That’s a subject of great interest to us anyway because we live in the South and are plagued with the nasty little bugs ourselves.

Boiler explosion at church was a sobering thing
We’ve just completed Vacation Bible School at our church, which is one of my favorite activities of the year. It is fun to see all the children and to watch them grow. It is also one of the few events in the church that the members themselves lead entirely, so that the ministers do not have to “make it happen” and can bask in reflected glory and enjoy the entire proceeding. Thanks to the Episcopalians for hosting this year!
Entire foundation laid for church in Honduras
There was something deeply satisfying about watching my teenage boys dig ditches, mix concrete and tie rebar. The fact that they were helping to build an orphanage in Honduras was icing on the cake.
My church, Covenant Presbyterian, has been deeply involved with the Salt and Light Ministry Honduras for some 20 years.
