Still no rain, but we do have some in the forecast for the next few days.
We had a surprise visit Saturday morning from Wayne and David Mitchel. We hadn’t seen them in a while and it was good to hear that they are doing well. David and his brother, Daniel, are both married and Daniel has a baby boy.
We were sorry to hear of the passing of Bobby D. Deeds last Friday night. Services were held for him at the Heritage Funeral Home in Brady Sunday afternoon with burial at the Cox Cemetery. Bobby was 87 years old and was born and raised in Elm Grove. We send our sympathy to Helen and the rest of the family.
G.H. Suber of Odessa was our guest for the weekend. Amy, Georgia and Jesse Tucker came over to spend the day with us Saturday. We all went to Lampasas to the exotic animal sale. We saw camels, zebras, beefalos and a lot of others I didn’t recognize. We saw a baby zebra bring in over $4000. We really enjoyed the day. G.H. went back on Sunday and bought a lot of birds.
The 42 tournament will be this Saturday night in Richland Springs.
Keep in mind the gospel singing on the 21st at 7:00 PM at the Elm Grove community center. Piano players are needed.
Speaking of gospel songs, we sang two songs at church last Sunday that really speak to our hearts during this time. We hear so much about the bad economy, the falling stock market, and what are we going to do! One song was “In Times like These” and the other was “The Solid Rock.” Look up these songs and pay close attention to the words. It is a timely reminder that we all can use.
