We have had no rain this past week. The vegetation is a little greener but there is still a lot of dry grass and weeds. I notice the burn ban is back on. March is going out like a lion, however we have not had as much wind as usual in March.
We spent the weekend in San Angelo and there was a very cold wind blowing out there. They are just a little greener than we are here.
Michael, Marilyn and Bethany Suber and I went to San Angelo last Friday afternoon for the wedding of Stacie Smith and Santos Elizondo. We enjoyed a dinner on Friday night at the Fire Dept. Union Hall with the Elizondo family.
Amy and Martha Tucker provided breakfast on Saturday morning followed by the rehearsal at the LaGrand Center on the ASU campus.
After a busy day of decorating and trying to find a way to anchor table cloths and so forth in the wind, the wedding was held at 6:00 PM. It was officiated by Jim Benson, the chaplain at Shannon Medical Center. I won’t name all of the attendants but I must mention that Georgia Grace Tucker was thrilled to be the flower girl, and she was a very cute one!
The reception was a delicious dinner and we had the special treat of a Mariachi Band performing for us while we dined. That was a first for many of us. We topped the weekend off with breakfast with the Elizondo family and came home tired but happy after the special occasion. After a wedding trip this week, Stacie will return to work at Shannon and Santos will return to the San Angelo Fire Dept.
Wednesday will be the 1st of April. The 42 tournament will be April 11th at Elm Grove. The Busy Bee quilters will meet on the 14th and the community meeting will be April 18th. Final plans will be made for the May 16th Homecoming Picnic. The working committees will be announced and those who have been on committees in the past have a pretty good idea what your job will be.
