I have never seen the countryside any prettier than it is this year. It is so green and the bluebonnets are out in abundance. The drive down FM 765 is something to see. Just east of the fire station in Elm Grove there is a huge flower bed mixed with blue, pink and yellow flowers. On the Tharp place across from Wayne Gossett’s gate there is a huge field of bluebonnets that you would have to see to believe! Here in Richland Springs, there are several acres of beautiful bluebonnets at the Ralston place east of town. Take time to get out and tour the countryside.
There were 31/2 tables of 42 players at the tournament Saturday night. Larry and Yvonne Cottrell took home first place with Andy Cummings and Bobby Mask coming in second. The next tournament will be May 8th at Shiloh.

We were sorry to hear of the passing of Joshua Butler, 29, of Brownwood. Interment for him was held Monday at the Cox Cemetery. He was a grandson of Nelson and Ella May (Deeds) Brown. We send our sympathy to the family.
Georgia and Jesse Tucker were guests of ours this weekend. Rex and Amy Tucker, along with some other adults, accompanied the Webelos, a boy scout troop, from Brady to Corpus Christi where the scouts were allowed to camp overnight on the USS Lexington. It was quite an experience for these young men, one they won’t ever forget. We had fun with the two little ones and they sure can wear you out!
