We are still waiting for that much needed rain with only a small chance for the weekend. Spring officially started last Sunday and the Mesquite trees are leafing out so it would appear that winter is over. However, Easter is still a month away and we quite often have a cool spell for Easter. I have seen some wild flowers peeking out. Our neighbor has a pretty crop of yellow and purple Irises.
We had a smaller than usual crowd for our gospel singing last Saturday night but we all enjoyed it. We will have another one on the third Saturday night in July and we will also have an ice cream supper along with it. Maybe the ice cream will bring out a few more folks.
I heard that Curtis Lee had a house full over the spring break week. Maybe Curtis got some of those extra chores taken care of while he had a lot of help. His kids are good to help him out.
There were seven teams participating in the predator hunt this past weekend. Steven Tharp’s team won second place and my grandsons Theron and Kelton Parson came in third. I could not get the names of the first place team but I understand they brought in a bobcat.
Marilyn and Bethany Suber participated in the 5K cancer walk/run last Saturday. Marilyn was pleasantly surprised that she was able to finish the whole distance since she had total knee replacement not too long ago. Bethany’s little Chihuahua, Amos Moses, trotted the three plus miles right along with them.
We have been talking amongst ourselves about the funeral service for Jr. Evans last week. We were amazed at how many of the Elm Grove "old- timers" were represented. Some families had three or four members there to honor the Evans family. At a time like that it makes you appreciate living in an area where everyone knows everyone else and we are just one big family.
Funeral services for our neighbor, Sue Williams, were held Sunday afternoon at the First Christian Church. We send our sympathy to her family.
