Here in the next few weeks there will be a fireworks and festivities going on called Skyfire 2011, vendors, businesses, etc will all be out there so if you want to get a booth now is the chance. Happens on July 2nd, so if you're interested in selling wares or promoting your business get on the ball. West Plains/Pomona area is where it will be, and you can call the West Plains City Hall for more information.
Had a good windstorm and a little rain two days ago, no damage just a sprinkle of rain and a lot of wind, so it was a bit noisy, but just a passing storm really. Today is a beautiful day however, and if you're working outside in the heat, the all day constant breeze is a welcomed delight!
As per the berries, the black raspberries are in full splendor, about a handful a day has been ripening, but I've only been able to find a small patch, the rest are blackberries ripening every day as well. Made a delicious blackberry and blueberry pie last night, it's half gone already! No vanilla ice cream to go with it though, would make the dish let me tell ya.
