Although summer has been in full swing for most since school let you or for others since Memorial Day, according to the calendar, today marks the official beginning of summer. It has been fun to see how you’ve been enjoying yours or what images come to mind when we mention the word summer. We hope you continue to enjoy yours.
“In June, as many as a dozen species may burst their buds on a single day. No man can heed all of these anniversaries; no man can ignore all of them.” ~Aldo Leopold
This one and the one following were submitted by Brandon Lee. He writes: “Here is a picture of one of the novelties of Kansas, wheat harvest. Even though it came so early this year, it is still a staple of what defines ‘Summer.’ Picture is of Bill Lee Harvest 7 miles west of Clay Center. Pictures taken by Phil Frigon, June 6, 2012. ”
“Love is to the heart what the summer is to the farmer’s year – it brings to harvest all the loveliest flowers of the soul.” ~Author Unknown
“Summer afternoon – summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language. ” ~Henry James
“People don’t notice whether it’s winter or summer when they’re happy.” ~Anton Chekhov
“A perfect summer day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing, and the lawn mower is broken.” ~James Dent
“Summer afternoon – summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.” ~Henry James
“In summer, the song sings itself.” – William Carlos Williams
The Sea Munsters are finally here…finally! It took a little work. The company we originally ordered the Monkeys from never delivered, so Rocky took matters into his own hands and found a store that sold them.
The quest has finally paid off! Now what I found are ‘Sea Monsters’. But they appear to be much the same as Sea Monkeys…so stay tuned to meet our new pets.
And I will really try to ‘not’ tell Chelsie “I told you so”…;)
Summer is in full swing and we want to know how you’ve been enjoying yours so far.
Submit photos of yourself or family doing what you love during the summer months. Is it ballgames? Swimming? Grilling? Whatever it is you love to do, we want to hear about it.
Email your photo along with your name, brief description of the photo and where it was taken to email@example.com and we will post them to the KCLY website on the official first day of summer, Wednesday, June 20.
KCLY/KFRM’s Mike Temaat had the chance to be part of a big day at the Blue Herron; bass and catfish was the catch of the day.

I’ll admit it….. I am horribly unorganized. So keeping my schedule together, cleaning my house, and dealing with the mail is difficult. I’m unorganized, and slightly scatterbrained (some people would say more than slightly –and those people would be my co-workers and husband!) I have taken the TV remote outside, thought I lost my phone WHILE talking on it, and more times than not I leave my house only to turn around to get my purse, my phone, or whatever. I have come up with different ways to help me deal with my flightiness; list-making apps on my phone, reminders on my computer, and a daily planner that has dozens of scribbled notes all over the pages, I am constantly fighting to keep myself together.
I also have some systems to help keep my finances organized. I use Automatic Withdrawals for every bill possible. It’s safe to use, you still get a statement so you know exactly how much your bill is and when it will be taken from your account, and sometimes the business will even give you a $1 or .50 discount. I mean – a discount is always a discount! And then I am never left searching for a stamp when the check needs to get mailed, or realizing on the 13th of the month that I never paid that monthly bill due on the 1st. For most businesses, you can either call them or use their website to get Automatic Withdrawal set up. Their Customer Service Reps will be happy to help you out if you have any questions. I promise the few minutes you spend setting up the Automatic Withdrawals will save you time, and maybe some money in the future.
No matter how innocent it may be, forgetting to pay a bill can be costly. So take advantage of an easy, reliable way for you to stay on top of those payments with Automatic Withdrawals. And also……well I was going to say something funny here but I forgot what it was.
