Woke up Monday with a heavy frost, which was not expected, but neither was the cold windy front that blew in Saturday, but with the front two-tenths of rain was received by some in the Bend area. Everyone has to remember this is Texas and you know what they say about the weather. Last week spoiled some of us, with all the nice warm days. Just be thankful you were not in California or Arizona this past week. We complain, but then wouldn’t want to live anywhere else.
Kerry Marley of Katy was in over the weekend visiting his mother Tommye Cobern and trying to get some more work done on his Pontiac Ventura that he has been restoring for some time now. The weather wasn’t the best in the world, but Kerry didn’t let a little thing like the weather slow him down.

Bill and Jo Price were at the Lampasas Rehab and Nursing home to play their usual game of dominoes with Elo Henniger Sunday.

Monday LaNell Daniels went to the Rollins Brook hospital for some tests. She had plenty of support from the home front, both of her sisters Gladys Brister of Thrall and Jane Clark went along to give support. After the tests the girls will hit the road to the nearest café to replenish their strength, as everyone knows with most tests you have to have an empty stomach.
