I OA---June 17, 2004 The Cuba Free Press J lr II Huzzah Creek Notes ,, i By Jerry Wilson We have a group of young people working for us this sum- mer in the park and so far it has been a pleasant experience. One young lady has been driv- ing our one-ton dump truck back and forth with loads of gravel and from the grin on her face you would think she was driving a Cadilc. One day Rick had them all lined up with hand tools dig- ging weeds out of our driveway when I walked out of the office and broke into uncontrollable laughter. Rick was wearing his park uniform and a pair of dark sunglasses. I told him all he needed was a shotgun to look like a scene out of the old movie 'Cool Hand Luke". Let's hope he doesn't have ' a failure to communicate' with the kids. Midnight is afraid of thunder. This all started a couple of years ago when a storm dropped a large black oak tree into the back yard and also across our Blazer. Midnight doesn't forget things and now as soon as it begins to thunder we will find her pressed up against the back door. We will let her in and as soon as she gets in the house she is OK. She isn't one of those dogs that pace back and forth, she will just lay down and go to sleep. Of course if she gets to come in the other two girls think they ought to get to also. One night it began to rumble off in the south and sure enough Midnight was on the steps. I let them in and things settled down until Sue opened the package of chew toys she had got for Fluffy. Fluffy loves her squeaky toys and really like to hear the squeak. Over the last few months her favorite toy had almost lost its squeak and Fluffy seemed real disappoint- ed when she squeezed it and nothing happened. Sue went to Rolls one day and while atW abe had picked up a package that-had not just one but two squeaky toys in it. While unwrapping it a toy squeaked and Fluffy ran over and sat down in an atti- tude of rapt attention. She spen[ ];h-e nxt-half-hour driv- ing us all nuts by first squeak- ing one and then the other. I called a friend who is going to demonstrate natural dyes at the Old Dillard Picnic and finally she asked, Where in the heck are you She kept VOTE FOR Leon Turnboul hml Crawford County Paid for by cand Im e/11 Settingp both your auto and home insurance with Amy can save you up to 20% off your auto premiums.

As she knows our dogs she reared when we told her what was going on. On another occasion when the girls were on storm watch I watched Fluffy take her toy and sneak up behind Midnight and Sneakers, who were trying to sleep, and squeak the toy as loud as she could. You could almost see her laugh Who says that dogs don't have a sense of humor? Midnight loves to jump ut) in my lap and lie there when she gets in the house. As she weighs in at over fifty pounds after a while my legs began to go to sleep. Also Midnight is our stinky dog. She has that Labrador coat of hair and the grease that makes the water roll oft ' of it also at times gets rancid smelling. I guess it is about time to go thand to paw comba!;_with her arigive her a bath. She will carry on like I am pulling her toenails out and this from the dog that every time she gets out heads straight for the creek. The garden is doing well and we ate the last of the lettuce the other day. While my moth- er was down she showed me how to make wilted lettuce. It is a shame that the lettuce bolt- ed so soon this spring. The tomatoes are doing well so far this year and I just might have a ripe tomato by July 4th. I harvested the first of the snow peas and used them along with some green onions, carrots (from the store) and chicken breasts to make some The beets which I had given up on earlier are sh signs of actually produci] something this year. Sue's garden is thriving except the golden sage and she 'barbered' some of the several times. Summer has definitely down on the banks of the tiful Huzzah Creek. fol- www. ri c kwa I I sfo rs he riff. cam Paid for by committee to Elect Rick Walls, Jim Steber, Treasurer tmc 6/17 Washer d,,aP ,,  o y  : L : o ,gav'n-s  uu..,mHmr'm Uses 68% less water Smart Solutions  ,,,,,,,,H .T- and 67% less energy" Wh_i.r,!pqQI Bm_nd" I,. ] by mail when you buy 4 selec[ Whirlpool Brand appliances.
