The weather, the weather what can you say! One day you are required to wear a sweater and the next day you need a fan to keep you cool, but watch out
Turkey Day, according to the weather report it is going to be in the 50’s. The wind has been something else to have to contend with too. If it blows on Thursday like it blew all day Sunday you will need more than a sweater, more
like an overcoat. It is Texas— enough said!

Saturday night William and Jane Clark went to watch grandson Jesse Clark rope. The roping was held outside of Hamilton. Jesse came out first place winner on the final go-round. The boys nineteen and younger roped against the professional ropers afterward. Which was good experience for amateur and professional. The younger generations are really good at what they do and the older ropers have the advantage of experience, but the younger ones have more speed most times.
Lola Morris had company from Austin Sunday. Her niece Lucille Underwood and Waymon Saul of Austin were out. While here, they took flowers to the Bend Cemetery to put on the grave of Elo Henniger.
