Greetings from Capps. What a beautiful spring we’ve had so far and if April showers really do bring May flowers, we had 3.5 inches of rain last Wednesday into Thursday at our place, anyway, it should be gorgeous. The blooms on the dogwoods are holding so far but the wind is kicking up so flowering trees may be about done for this year. Many folks came by our store looking for dogwoods but we didn’t have them available from our supplier, hopefully next year.  

Our friend Leo Wakefield finally came home from rehab last Friday, 37 days post-op from his knee surgery, he’s thankful to be home.  

My friend Rob told me they are continuing work on the Holy Trinity Lutheran Church building, looks like new windows and carpet, it should look awesome when (finally) complete. He wasn’t looking for a part-time job, it just kind of happened that way.  

It looks like my new friend Matt has been having some long days, he runs a mowing service and as they say, “you’ve got to make hay while the sun shines.” Some days he isn’t pulling in until after dark.  

Don’t forget the Homesteader’s Swap Meet today, (Saturday) May 4 at Capps Mini-Storage from 8 a.m.-noon, we got there late last time and many of the vendors were sold out, it will be held again on May 18 at the same time and place. It’s $5 to set up to sell, free to buyers, they Facebook also.  

Until next time, let’s continue to count our blessings, knowing that we live in the best place on earth.
