Reports of rain all around us, but so far nothing except for a drop or two, just enough to give you the smell of rain and get your hopes up. Maybe someday it will cloud up and pour down enough to measure in the rain gauge. The Indians used to have a rain dance to make it rain. There needs to be some Indians around here to do a rain dance.
It has been so hot everyone is staying inside and trying to stay cool. Not much else going on.
Friday a good breeze was blowing and it was surprisingly cool under the big pecan trees at the Methodist Camp Ground, where a large crowd of more than 100 people gathered to partake of the fish and all the good food and desserts.
Jackie Brister and his crew fried the fish and the ladies of the church prepared the desserts and other dishes that everyone enjoyed. Some folks were seen going back for seconds of everything. There were several big containers of cantaloupe that really hit the spot. People came from all over to attend the affair. They came from San Saba, Goldthwaite, Katy, Lometa, Copperas Cove, Lometa, Lampasas, Brady and one visitor from Utah.
Sylvia Stinnett reported that she and Jimmy went to Waxahachie last week for an overnight visit with their son Garrison, Brooke and grandchildren Gunner.
While there they watched Garrison play “T” ball and babysit the children Tuesday afternoon.
David, Amy and Megan Stewart of Copperas Cove had been in Colorado and was able to make it to the fish fry Friday night to be with other members of their family.
Saturday David, Amy and Megan Stewart, Joel, Denise and baby Abigail January from Katy, Debbie January of Waco, Jolene Lively, Leon and Mebbie Eckhoff, Charlene and Jerry Reavis all went to Marble Falls and ate lunch at the River City Grill.
Carolyn McCoury is going to the doctor this week to see if surgery will correct her knee problem. Keep her in your prayers.
It has been reported that Foy Gibson is doing fairly well this past week. He is another one to keep in your prayers.
Someone from Lometa called Jerome Meischen to ask him to drive his antique tractor Saturday afternoon in the FFA rodeo parade. They didn’t have to twist his arm too hard to get him to do it, as Jerome likes to show off
It is the same tractor that he won a prize for in the San Saba rodeo parade. Lola Morris and Sylvia Stinnett went to Lometa to watch the parade and to see Jerome and his antique tractor.
