The bluebonnets are on their last legs, but still very pretty especially where the paint brush and yellow flowers are mixed in among them. The rain that fell this past week amounted to eight-tenths of an inch around the Bend.
A bridal shower was held at the Bend community center Sunday afternoon for Eric Hernandez and Ashley Lowe of Lampasas.
Charlene Brister reported that Frances Morris, Mollie B., Andrew and great grandson Zander came for a visit April 14 to take pictures of the bluebonnets and visit with other members of the Brister family. Lunch was served to Emerson, Gladys, Vernon, Judy Brister, Bill and Evelyn Herman of San Angelo. Later that same evening a birthday supper was held for Mary Ann Perry. Those who attended were Wayland Perry, Patience and Brandon, Maycie and Tatum from Cherokee.
On April 24, the Leaning Bluff Lodge was the place for the wedding of Allen Brown and Jill Miller.
Wednesday a birthday supper was held in the home of William and Jane Clark for LaNell Daniels. Since Jane had the surgery, she recruited the help of Winnie Lou McCoury to help with the party. Friends and family that attended were Emerson and Gladys Brister of Thrall, Thomas and Sheila Smithhart, Rufus and Tommye Cobern, Vernon and Judy Brister of Cherokee, R.J. and Patsy Henniger, Dickie Eckhoff, Jamie, A.J. and Andrew Houdyshell. It was a surprise to LaNell as she thought it was just going to be William, Jane and herself.
Last week Jane had to go to Round Rock to have more work done on her foot. Ginger Underwood took her as Jane is not able to drive her car yet.
