Friday the snow that fell at the Bend was short lived, but pretty while it lasted. Sunday was cloudy and misty, but no measure amount of rain. It is good for hunters as the deer are up and moving.
With this last cold spell the goats are dropping little ones right and left. You can always depend on the cold wet weather to bring on the little goats.

Jerome and Shirley Meischen didn’t send in a report on the Saturday football game between Texas and Nebraska. They may still be holding their breath,
because it was a very close game with Texas pulling it off at the last minute. Their grandson Blake Gideon did make an interception in the early first half of the game, which made the game even more exciting for them. It was a very
good game, but was too close for comfort. They are already making plans to go to California to see the Long Horns finish out the year.
Last week was very hectic for the Price family, Monday to Goldthwaite to leave a sick computer to be repaired and on to the Metroplex for Jo to have her blood checked, Tuesday an all day meeting at Belton to hear Elmyra V. Encarnacion, MD. Neurologist from Scott and White talk about Parkinson’s Disease and other Parkinsonian syndromes. A speech therapist who worked with people who suffered from Parkinson’s disease and an occupational therapist who also worked with patients. Wednesday visited the San Saba nursing home, then early Thursday a drive to Midland to attend the ARCO retiree’s Christmas luncheon and Friday in the snow to Lampasas to get feed for the goats and food for the family. Saturday stayed home and collapsed. Sunday attended church and after lunch played dominoes with Elo Henniger at the Lampasas Nursing home. Jo won first game and Elo the second one.
Sunday after church Rufus and Tommye Cobern drove to Lampasas and ate at the Taco Bell and while in Lampasas made the trip to Walmart to get some ink for the printer. Just a reminder to members of the Family Council of Eventide, the meeting has been moved up to December 19th, at 10:15 a.m. at the Rylander library because of Christmas. If you have a loved one or have a friend in the nursing home you are urged to attend.
