Who would ever have known that Saturday was the first day of spring? The north wind was very strong and it was 38 degrees for a high that day. Sunday was a bit warmer but still windy. Monday was finally a pretty day and we enjoyed that. A friend from San Antonio said since it has stayed colder longer this year, he predicts a cold winter next year. I sure hope not!
We had a smaller crowd for the gospel singing last Saturday night due to the weather, I’m sure. There were only 24 present but we all enjoyed it as usual. Wayne Powell did most of the leading. We are always glad to have him. His brother, Norman, was with him. Ken Parson helped out with the leading and Lanell Parson was our only piano player. She got a work out! Mr. and Mrs. Cecil Campbell made the trip from San Antonio and we always enjoy having them there. Laurel Edmondson gave several renditions on the piano and her sister, Melia, played several pieces on the fiddle. These girls have been taking lessons for years and they are quite good. We appreciate all of the musicians for coming. Our next singing will be October 16th. Mark your calendar and come and join us.
While you are marking your calendar, don’t forget the homecoming picnic on May 15th and the rodeo August 5, 6 &7. It will be here before you know it.
We learned of another death today. Jesse and Andy Cummings’ cousin, Clyde Teague, of Fort Worth passed away. We have had so many deaths lately. Since the fall, there have been 12 of our friends or family members pass away.
We have kicked off the soccer and baseball season with the grandkids. Georgia Tucker is playing soccer in Brady and her Mom is coaching. Jesse and Jaxon Tucker are both playing baseball. It is hard to keep up with all the games and practices but I have been doing it for years. I watched grandkids from T-ball through high school and now I am watching great grandkids and loving every minute of it. Georgia’s first soccer game is 8:30 AM Saturday and if weather permits, we will be there and wearing something red as instructed.
