It's July. It's hot. It's humid. Not right now, of course, as I'm writing this in early May, but I'm thinking ahead to what we'll be experiencing by the time you have this issue in hand. I'm thinking ice cream, I'm thinking lemonade, I'm thinking swimming hole. And of course, I'm hoping that the corn will be 'knee high by the Fourth of July.' Is that an expression you use in your part of the country? Around here, it's a way to gauge how well the crop is growing.
Lots of folks head for the beach this time of year, while some just stay at home to 'surf the 'Net.' If you're one of the latter and have had trouble finding us, that's because we misprinted our E-mail address (a lot of this technology is new to us too!). The correct address is: http://www.xrnission.com:80/~lancpa/stem gas. If what you tried before didn't work, please try us again!
For those of you interested in EDGE&TA affairs who read Charley Stark's comments on page 28 of the May 1996 issue, we must let you know that we misread his abbreviation for Arkansas as Arizona, and put the wrong state name in. Branch #70 is located in Prairie Grove, Arkansas, just south of Fayetteville, Arkansas, and the Southeast Regional Show will be hosted by Branch #32 in Clarksville, Arkansas, from September 27-29. We apologize to the members of EDGE&TA, and especially to the members of chapters #32 and #70, for the mixup.
Silver Queen, Io' Chief, Butter & Sugar. . . mmmmm! I'm dreaming of the ripening sweet corn crop. Here's wishing you lots of buttery smiles this month!!
