We have heard reports about good rains all around us, but none here. It is still hot and very dry.
We have lost two more cousins in the past week. Leonard Gober, age 97, of San Angelo passed away and his services were held in San Angelo. James Hardman, age 82, of Houston also passed away and his services were held in Houston. This leaves just Mabel Arnold as the last one of the Gober cousins and Harold Hardman is the last one of seven Hardman brothers. I am the last of seven in my family so we are dwindling pretty fast. I believe in being thankful for all the things I can still do, however, and try not to dwell on what I can’t do anymore.
There were three tables of players at the 42 tournament in Mercury last Saturday night. There was a tie for first place between the team of Curtis Lee and Marilyn Suber and the team of Andy Cummings and Larry Griffin. Bringing in third was Bill Harlow and Micky Brosig. Another table played chicken foot and I visited with all of them while I crocheted. The next tournament will be in Richland Springs.
The community meeting will be this Saturday night. We probably will not be there since we plan to go to San Angelo Saturday afternoon for the 50th anniversary celebration of Santos and Nonie Elizondo. This will be the last community meeting before the gospel singing in October so try to make it if you can. There will be no meeting in September.
We are helping out with the Tucker kids since Amy has work shops every day this week getting ready for school next week. Georgia Tucker accompanied Marilyn Suber and me to Brownwood today while Jaxon and Jesse kept an eye on Papaw here at the house.
