A late report from the home of Charlene and Jerry Reavis concerning their Thanksgiving guests. Their son Mark of Austin came in with all the dinner ready to eat, which of course was most welcome. Daughter Cindy came in from Brownwood to visit. As everyone knows, Jerry has been having lots of health problems, but he may be on the road to better health. Charlene reported that if it hadn't of been for all the good neighbors who came in and helped the situation would have been a lot worse. She was so grateful for everyone who helped her in her time of need.
Mebbie Eckoff whom you don't hear of often enough reported that she did really well at the pecan judging. She came in with a first on the Comanche, Shawnee, Choctaw, and the Manhan. A second on Tejas, Mohawk and Wichita. Congratulations Mebbie!
It seems that most of the pecans around the Bend have been well filled out, but not a really heavy yield and even fewer natives this year.
Bill and Jo Price made a whirlwind trip to Midland Thursday for the Christmas celebration of the ARCO retirement members. The number of members is becoming smaller at every event. The Golden Years are not as golden as most would like them to be. Tin or bronze might just be better. The only ones that seem to be getting the gold are the different doctors who you have to go to when you reach that time in your life.
Sunday, Pat Millican was taken to Lampasas to the hospital suffering from chest pains and he was taken to Austin where they placed a stint. He was still in some pain and the doctors aren't sure just what would be needed next. Keep Pat on your prayers lists.
Congratulations go out to Winnie Lou McCoury who won the Reserve Champion with her Pecan Citrus Spice pie and the cash award of fifty dollars, which will come in handy to shop for Christmas gifts.
Louise Barefoot suffered a fall at her home in Lampasas which required stitches to her face, but no broken bones, thank goodness.
Sylvia Stinnett recently returned from a trip to Galveston which she made this past week with her daughter Autumn Edwards. They were in Galveston for three days while Autumn attended a Physical Education conference at the Moody Gardens. There were more than 2000 teachers who attended the conference. While Autumn was attending the different sessions, Sylvia was sight seeing, walking on the beach and enjoying the beautiful weather there. Autumn came home with losts of new ideas and she also won some prizes while there.
Granddaughter Jessica, her husband Daniel and their three children from Clyde spent the day Saturday at the home of Bill and Jo Price.
No one has a birthday this week to report, but to some who may have one, have a happy birthday.
