July is jumping!Posted Thursday, July 14, 2011, at 3:58 PM
Summer flowers bloom at the Yoder Mennonite greenhouse on Highway 25 at Aquilla.
As the sweltering heat of July presses us all to the sidewalk, life continues in the small town of Advance, Mo., now pop. 1301, according to the latest census. Whoopee, folks, that's 57 more residents than we had in 2000! Hey, it could be worse, ya know! Look at all the towns that have actually decreased--including St. Louis, from what I hear on the grape vine....
Okay, so it's been 101 around here lately, but we now have a cold wave of about 90, so we're really feeling the relief!
