Judy Anderson and Kay Down
Kay Down and Judy Anderson offer some summertime recipes in their "Cookin' with J & K" column in the July 30 Galva News.

July is over and August is on its way, lots of produce in the gardens.

Try to enjoy the rest of the warm summer we are having. We will soon be complaining of the cold, and thinking of apple pie and pumpkin pie and all the good fall eating.

Never throw dirt . . . you only lose ground.
