We have not had any rain the past week but things are still pretty and green. They are showing signs of needed moisture though.
I spent last week with Lanell and Ken Parson at Bangs and they are really in need of rain there. The week was short and I enjoyed the visit.
The big news around our house is the arrival of another great-granddaughter. She was born last Thursday to Stacie and Santos Elizondo in San Angelo. She weighed 9 lbs, 1 oz, and was 19 inches long and was named Sophia Grace. This will make 10 great grandkids for me. Marilyn is spending a few days up there helping spoil her.
We were sorry to hear of the passing of Glyn Weatherman of Mercury. He died on their 70th wedding anniversary. The Weathermans have been long time residents of the Milburn and Mercury Communities. Funeral services were held today (Monday) at Mercury Baptist Church with interment in Cox Cemetery. We send our sympathy to the family.
The weather was perfect Saturday night for the third fundraiser for the EGV Fire Department at the fire station. The fish was prepared by Jeffery Bates and was very good as usual. There was a large crowd.
The 42 Tournament was to be at Richland Springs, but was moved to Elm Grove. In first place was Shorty Barnett and Larry Griffin. Tied for second place was Mary Fisher and Sherry Smith and Donna Taylor and Bill Harlow. The July 10 Tournament will be at Elm Grove.
I missed the Busy Bee Quilting last Tuesday but there was 5 ladies present. Gloria and Fay Lusty, Marilyn Miller, Irene Hammett, Grace Hardman. They worked on the quilt for Grace. Irene Hammett will bring the quilt for July 13.
