August 2

We've been seeing hummingbirds again -

maybe they never left?

Sad to report the death of William Arlen Davis, you may remember

him as "Bill", age 63, son of Bill & Florence Davis, on August 10,

in Sacramento, California. His memorial service will be held

August 25, also in Sacramento. He is survived by his daughter,

sisters Gloria and Crystal. Local relatives are Gerry and Billy

Ray Davis and Frank Schulze. Condolences to family and friends.

Craig Johnson_400

Last Friday night, my sister Mary and I attended a program

by Craig Johnson, author of the "Longmire" series. The TV

series was a big hit at our house and until I saw the poster

from the Sarpy County Libraries, I didn't even know there

were books! He was down to earth, very charming, and missed

his calling of stand up comedian. Johnson told about the process

of writing the series, who he based his characters on, the

actor auditions, and a hilarious story centered around Rainer

Beer. He also shared with us that his father went to his grave

thinking he was the model for Walt Longmire; spoiler alert:

he was the model for Lucien! If you ever get a chance to see

him, we highly recommend it!

Nebraska Outline

Did you know that Nebraska was ranked 2nd in all cattle

and calves, December 31, 2017, with 6,800,000 head?

Also 2nd in livestock and products receipts in 2016, at

$12,147,375,000; 2nd in hay production, pinto beans

production, proso millet production, and light red kidney

beans production, all in 2017; and head of bison in 2012

with 23,152 head. Nebraska's farms and ranches utilize

45.2 million acres - 91% of the state's total land area, and

there are nearly 23 million acres of rangeland and pasture-

land in Nebraska, half of that are in the Sandhills.

Continued get well wishes to John Stilwell, Cindy Bassinger,

and Pastor Sandy Denton. Healing thought to

Bruce Gerking of Burr.

From the large amount of vehicles around the Methodist

Church Sunday morning, we'd judge the ice cream social

there a huge success!

On phrasse to describe the Calcutta at the golf course over

the weekend? "Rain, rain, go away!"
