It has been cloudy, misty and cold all day (Monday) and the forecast is more of the same for most of the week. Maybe a little sunshine in a few days. That is typical fall weather.
Today is the 68th anniversary of Pearl Harbor Day. For those of you who are too young to remember what that day means, it was the day Japan bombed Pearl Harbor and was the start of World War II. I remember it very well, it was on a Sunday morning. We couldn’t believe it when we heard it on the radio. My husband, Jesse, was one of the boys that had been drafted for one year and instead, was in the Army five years. He trained last in the Mojave Desert in California, then was sent to the jungles of New Guinea where he went from island to island in the Philippines. When the war ended he came home from there. December 7, 1941 changed the course of many lives and those of us who lived through it will never forget.
Our Busy Bee quilting party was postponed from Tuesday to Thursday of this week because of conflicting interests. We will have our gift exchange at 10:00 AM and no quilting will be done that day.
Holt Baptist Church will have the holiday dinner this Sunday after services. We would like to extend an invitation to anyone who would like to join us.
The 42 tournament will be this Saturday night in Richland Springs.
My great-grandson, Jaxon Tucker, went to San Angelo today for Robotics competition. The top three places were won by teams from Brady. Jaxon also shot his first hog this weekend, so he had a lot to be excited about.
G.H. Suber from Odessa spent the weekend here with us while taking in the bird auction at Lampasas. Jesse Tucker also kept us company while Dad and Bubba went hunting and Mom and Sissy went to San Angelo.
