LOWELL / SYRINGA Miss Martha Smith, of Lowell, is turning sweet 16 this week. She is the best, working this summer at Idaho County Properties’ Kooskia office, and Three Rivers Resort. She’s a perfect little 5’ tall 120-pound granddaughter, full of spunk with a great attitude and bench presses ?? a lot (a member of the Kamiah gym.) Happy Birthday, dear Miss Martha!
It’s hot! My shopping list includes sunblock, wasp and bee killer, cheap oscillating fan, and new flip-flops (my old ones are worn out.) But it will be a while before going into town in this early July hot spell. We are all worried about what will come by mid-August.
My days are spent with early morning projects in the yard, as always; I never know where my yard ends and the Idaho wilderness begins, then in the heat of the day get inside or on the river until the sun goes behind the mountain. Evenings are perfect for outside barbecues and sitting along the riverbank up at Johnson’s Bar, or even on your own front porch, feeling lucky to just breathe in and out.
