I was checking out some groups on Facebook the other night and found a group called know you’re from Madisonville if . . . People have posted over 300 photos of events, people and buildings. This photo a great find because it shows the Kerrick’s Fashion Mart (left side). Steve”s parents and uncle owned this store in the 1940. Before moving to 668 Suthard Drive the Kerrick”s lived over the store. Steve use to go the Cameo Theatre across the street. It cost him 25 cents for the movie, 10 for the popcorn and 5 cents for a drink.  Double click on the photo to enlarge it. This is Hopkins County Hospital, where Steve (1948) and I (1950) were born. On Sept 12, 1958 four black students entered Pride Ave. Elementary School accompanied by two Kentucky State Policemen. The police moved back the crowd of women from the school”s drive …
OK, usually I have problems with allergies when our miniature crab apple tree blooms but this is not the usual season this year. I have had enough of the itching red eyes, and the tickle on the roof of the mouth and in the back of my throat. The antihistamines are causing my head to hurt and making me irritable. Having said this don’t you think the tree causing all these problems is pretty?!?!?   Today’s Abundance Allergy pills My senses of sight and smell

After watching the guys walk on the roof, carry the shingles, throwing and pulling up the shingles I think it takes talent. But then it might be they are not afraid of heights! They carried all shingles to the drop point. Then they threw it into the trailer. I can see myself going right off with the shingles!   Imagine pushing on a shovel with that much pressure while standing on the peak of a roof!      Bill, the roof salesman, was texting while over seeing the roof. He, however, was standing on the flat roof. 
Lunch was over and back to work. All these holes are for the sky lights and attic vents. I thought the roof was going to be darker. I’m not sure about the color with the brick. Steve loves it but I’m waiting for it to “grow on me”.     The sun was going down and it was time to finish up. They worked until 8:00 but didn’t get the flat roof on the bedroom. It rained so it was Friday before they could finish up.
We needed a new roof, it had been damaged by hail from last year. The guys (10 of them) arrived about 9:00 and got right to work. The roofer looks like he’s saying “I just don’t know what to do next.”  At times the front yard looked like a war zone.    By 1:30 the old roof was off then, it was lunch time for the guys. Maria, one of the worker’s wife, showed up with a huge cooler filled with fried chicken and other goodies. That night Hershey was out for his final potty and found a chicken leg. He was so happy until it got taken away from him. Today’s Abundance Insurance CoverageGood puppies not barking from noise
