Summer notes

Fresh tomatoes are absolutely one of life’s delights. In fact, they are just about my favorite food on this earth — especially divine when eaten right off the bush, like an apple, wit a sprinkling of salt.

Hubby Paul Schuetze’s tomatoes are very slowly producing various sizes and we are enjoying them.

However, thanks to Greenwood pals Mike and Mary Wark, we have a week’s supply of lush, ripe tomatoes that we enjoy daily. I ration them. And prepare them very simply for that is all that is necessary, really, for a fine, fine supper and/or lunch!

The Warks brought on Wednesday a huge sack tomatoes, green beans and cucumbers from their large garden. We have relished the fruits of their labor.

... Read in USA Today this morning that Holiday Inns across the land are getting overhauls and new ones are being construction.

The section cover story reminded us how much we like Holiday Inn Express, Salina, Kan., where we overnight to and from Colorado each summer.

The service is perfect.

It is the breakfast that brings rave reviews. It is serve yourself, but the selection is large: several kinds of cereal and selections of milk; multiple juices to choose from; boiled eggs; omelets; a variety of breads; yougart; fruit; coffee; and their famous cinnamon rolls.
If you are headed that way, I highly recommended this HI Express.

... While doing research for a story on the Caddo Parish School System Talented Arts Program at Barnwell Garden and Art Center, I ran across a familiar name. Our cousin, Sydney Sloan’s scratch board "Table Decor" is among those in the show. Way to go Sydney. (She is the daughter of Shreveporter Jemma Sloan and the late Martin Sloan of Dixie. Her paternal grandparents are Pam Sloan Street of Colorado Springs, Colo., and the late Jimmy Lee Sloan of Dixie.)
