Once again the flower thieves hit the cemetery after Memorial Day. How sad families cannot pay tribute to their loved ones without having someone who has no respect for others stealing that tribute. How do you reach this place in life that you feel you have to go to a cemetery and steal? How would you react if this were done to your loved one's grave? I'm sure that you are the kind of person who can't keep your mouth shut about doing such a stupid deed and I hope that when you brag to others about what you did, they will, in turn report you to the authorities.
Eight rigs of local Sundowners attended the Ione Auction. This is always a really good auction plus a great barbecued meal and an outing that we all look forward to.

Lyle History: As published in the Ruralite September 1985.
"Two-year old Pepper Tu is the guardian, the conversation piece, and the pampered mascot for Crosby Stables near Lyle."
"He is also a recent example of Jim Crosby's capacity to be flexible enough to change his mind to meet new opportunities."
"Pepper Tu is a small, strange looking black dog of the rare Belgian breed called Schipperke, which means 'little captain.' Jim and Eunice Crosby laughingly admit that though they have never wanted to have a dog around -- 'too messy and too smelly!' -- they are now 100 percent boosters for Pepper Tu. 'Feel his hair,' they urge. Surprisingly, it is rough and stiff on top but fine and silky below.' So there's no shedding hair and never any odor'!"
Happiness is like a cat. It eludes those who seek it and jumps into your lap when you least expect it.
