  • What's coming up and dang its hot!

    Hey there Blog readers,,,The heat has gotten us all.  We raised almost $800.00 supporting the concession stand for the Midstate Horse Shows at Lorance on two of the hottest, sweatiest weekends possible...I think.  Its not over yet...  Put up a new pool for DSRA to cool off and it has maintained a 92 and up temperature so I just have a huge ugly pond in back yard...but our time will come.
