I was sad when I read a report in today's paper that Faith Dairy is closing. It's been in the same location for 40 years. But the owners say due to the high cost of fuel and feed, they are closing their drive-up dairy service, selling their herd of 400 Holstein cows after this coming weekend. There are 30 acres at the sight of the drive-up dairy and 180 acres in the outlying area where they keep the cows. Faith Dairy has not only sold milk but they have their own brand of gourmet ice cream, chocolate milk, eggs, butter, sour cream, cottage cheese and of course various ice cream treats like Dove Bars, etc. Their milk prices have always been slightly less than the prices in the big grocery stores and their drive-up service has been excellent.
Faith Dairy....I will miss you ! Driving down 72nd street will never be the same.
They have a "person of interest" in custody in regards to the little girl taken the evening of July 4th. They have his gray van, they have him and there are search teams with dogs, searching an area north of Tacoma. This man is a sex offender and they were able to arrest & hold him because he had failed to register with authorities when he moved to his latest address. (That is a law here, that all comvicted sex offenders must register with the authorities each time they move.)
It's blistering hot here again today. At just before noon the temperature on my porch is 86*. The weather guys are saying it could be up close to 100* by days end. I have Gabi in one of my bathrooms....the coolest one. She has her litter box, food and water in there and the summer fan in my furnace is blowing cool air from the floor register. I just put the baby gate up so she's contained in a cool room. Yesterday's heat really wiped us both out. She spent most of the day sprawled out on the kitchen floor. I did not go to Curves yesterday and I'm not sure I'm going to day. I don't want to close up my house again this afternoon, to go out. I was going to stop on the way home from Faith Dairy but I called and the staff member said their little tiny refrigerator is full and I didn't want to leave my milk, etc in the car.....so I came on home.
Well, I hope everyone has a good Wednesday (hump day), keep cool or stay dry...whatever your weather conditions might be. Linda
