Brian and Emily Ramsey visited with Roger and Pat Ramsey last Sunday. In the afternoon they enjoyed looking for some mushrooms.

Mushrooms have been showing up sporadically between showers. Mostly what we are finding are the black or dark brown mushrooms. A few reports of white mushrooms are starting to surface, so if we see sunshine after all this rain, there should be loads of mushrooms to find.

A bear was spotted near the Fulton/Huntingdon County line last Friday evening. We like to see bears but would rather they be in someone else's backyard. The hummingbirds have also returned to the area.

Visiting with Tom and Mamie Streightiff on Sunday were Tim Streightiff, Kristi Streightiff and Kenny Watkins.
