We have not had any rain in some time, now. This is a drab time of the year with everything being so brown. I know there is a reason for all of the seasons and I will just look forward to Spring when everything comes back to life, again. We enjoyed two snowfalls before Christmas which is unusual for this area.
This begins a new month in a new year, in a new decade. The 42 tournament will be at Elm Grove on the 9th. The Busy Bee quilters will meet on the 12th. The community meeting will be January 16th and we will elect officers. Please make plans to be there. We have a good community and it takes all of us to keep it going. We need more input from the younger people or it will all die out. Wanda Dennis and Nelda Teague will be hostesses for the meeting.
Marilyn and I visited with my sister, Addie Long, in the Brownwood hospital today. She is not doing very well and will be going to a nursing home when she gets out of the hospital. She will be 90 years old this year.
Not very many turned out for the New Year’s Eve party at Elm Grove community center but those who did, had a good time. Games were played, fireworks were on display and good food was enjoyed by all. They all stayed to see in the New Year.
Wilma Lee reports about 12 Christmas visitors at the ranch with her and Curtis. Wilma continues to improve for which we are all thankful.
Michael Suber and I had it to ourselves last week while Marilyn took a trip to New Mexico with Rex and Amy Tucker and family. They saw a lot of snow and the kids got in some skiing. They all had a good time and were ready to get back home. Marilyn made it back in time to take care of some of her ladies hairdos on Friday.
