Some of the area has been getting a few showers of rain recently. The creek is almost dry. Harold and Wesley Cupp have been watering their raised gardens. So far so good, but there has been some scorching weather the last couple of weeks.
The year 2022 is already half over. One doesn’t know what the last half of the year will be like. The writer hopes that everyone who has a garden gets enough produce from it to last through the winter months because no one knows what is in store.
The writer’s neighbor, Jennifer, started a new job at Summit Community Bank. She was driving to Harrisonburg, Virginia, every day. This job will be closer home and she won’t have the mountain to drive across every day. She recently spent the weekend in New Jersey celebrating her daughter’s 21st birthday.
Steve Smith of Stuarts Draft, Virginia, has been spending time here doing some mowing and upgrading his camp for the summer.
Shelly and Carol Sheldrick, along with Jack and Nickey from New Jersey, have also spent some time here this summer. Since Carol has finally retired from the school system, she reported they would be spending more time here.
The Eavers from Clover Hill, Virginia, have been in working on their place here.
Rodger and Judy Coleman have finally returned to their place after spending some time working in the funeral home for the people that have been on vacation. Harold Cupp was feeding the cats for them and looking after the place while they were gone.
The tractor parade and lawn party are the next big events in this area in August. Guys, get the tractors all shined up for the big event. The Treasure Mountain Festival will be just around the corner.
Recent visitors in the Harold and Anna Cupp home have been Rodger and Judy Coleman, Gary Shaffer of Sugar Grove, Peggy White of Monroe, New Jersey, and Erma Moats.
Peggy White also visited her son, Rick, and Jennifer while she was here.
Wesley Cupp continues to help out around the writer’s house. He is really proud of his potato patch. Hopefully, there will be enough potatoes to do the Cupps over the winter provided they can keep the patch watered.
Shirley and Junior Lohr have been staying home with the air conditioner when they aren’t at their place in Harrisonburg, Virginia, doing the mowing and odds and ends.
Dennis and Carol brought the Cupps some chicken livers and shrimp last week from the Wood Grill in Harrisonburg, Virginia.
Frank and Cheryl Waldof of New Jersey and Dennis recently motored to Florida to pick up their new motor home. This way they would have some way to visit the Cupps in the summer.
