Yes, July is biting the dust today, and tomorrow we move into August. It seems that this year has gone by so fast! When we get older it seems time goes by faster.
July ended with lots of rain for us here in Upper East Tennessee. On Wednesday night my gauge showed we had gotten 1.1 inches on Tuesday. On Thursday morning my gauge showed another 1.2 inches of rain. And it rained more on Thursday. I measured 0.9 inches more last night. That 3.2 inches of rain since Tuesday evening. That seems sort of unusual for this time of the year.

Joke of the Day
A little girl was observed by her pastor standing outside the preschool Sunday School classroom between Sunday School and worship, waiting for her parents to come and pick her up for "big church." The pastor noticed that she clutched a big storybook under her arms with the obvious title, "Jonah and the Whale."
Feeling a little pernicious, he knelt down beside the little girl and began a conversation. "What's that you have in your hand?", he asked.
"This is my storybook about Jonah and the Whale," she answered.
"Tell me something, little girl," he continued, "do you believe that story about Jonah and that whale to be the truth?"
The little girl implored, "Why of course I believe this story to be the truth!"
He inquired further, "You really believe that a man can be swallowed up by a big whale, stay inside him all that time, and come out of there still alive and OK? You really believe all that can be true?"
She declared, "Absolutely, this story is in the Bible and we studied about it in Sunday School today!"
Then the pastor asked, "Well, little girl, can you prove to me that this story is the truth?"
She thought for a moment and then said, "Well, when I get to Heaven, I'll ask Jonah."
The pastor then asked, "Well, what if Jonah's not in Heaven?"
She then put her hands on her little hips and sternly declared, "Then YOU can ask him!"
