Kathleen H. Taylor
Welcome back to Beason. Some would like to call it "Kathy's Place" (ok, maybe I am the only one who would like to call it that.
Our deepest sympathy goes out to Amy Allen Cooper for the loss of her husband Henry. Henry was an outstanding individual and will be missed.
We would like to thank all the men and women whom are putting their lives on the line so we can live in peace. These people have great courage and make huge sacrifices. We appreciate all of you and remember those who lost their lives in order to save ours. Thank you.
We are experiencing smoldering hot weather with a 100% chance of allergy/asthma attacks. Allergies have claimed the Taylor household and we are stocked up on inhalers, Kleenex and Claritin. So, if you are ever in need of replenishment of your Kleenex supply, we got you covered.
Brian is currently working in Youngstown doing whatever it is he does. It looks like after several years of marriage, I would know exactly what it is he does. I do know it requires a lot of math and dirty clothes, so, therefore, it doesn't interest me too much. It keeps us ahead on mortgage payments, which does interest me very much.
The Pennsboro Cardinals Little League team is doing pretty well this season. Coach Kevin has been so good to all the kids. He gives them every opportunity to be more than they thought they could be. He is such a great role model as some kids don't have that in their lives. Kids remember who were there for them and who wasn't.
Avery Taylor on the mound
They remember someone who taught them to listen and take responsibility. So, I feel our team is in good hands. Avery has spent a lot of his time on the mound or being the catcher. He wants to be the star pitcher, but, I keep reminding him it doesn't come overnight and it doesn't come easily. He's been working very hard and failure isn't in his vocabulary. So, I look for him to be that "star" someday. Hopefully, stardom will come with some sort of college scholarship.
Our little family took a day trip to Blackwater Falls and Seneca Rocks. I had never been there before and it was truly amazing. There are so many wondrous things in West Virginia, yet, so many people don't want to take the time to find out. I recommend a visit to the Blackwater/Seneca area if you haven't been there before. Even if you have, it's worth taking it all in again.
The kids and I took in the Calhoun Wood Festival this year. It was fun and it was nice to see faces from my hometown. The kids rode some of the rides that I am fairly certain I would be sick on. We also spent about twenty dollars in the dime toss game. We can drop a ton of money until we get the glass we had our eye on since we started. So, I am sure the fire department can buy a new truck just with the money we gave them.
We have adopted a Black Lab puppy. Actually he is Black Lab and some miscellaneous canine fella. Nonetheless, he is very cute and very well behaved. He has been a fun addition to our family. Gosh knows we needed more animals on the farm.
