We have had a strong north wind blowing for the past two days. If only it would blow in some rain. As we are watching the news though, in Bastrop as well as all the other places which are burning, we realize we could be much worse off than what we are.
There will be no Cox Cemetery work day and business meeting this month after all. The president says there is really no business to attend to and since it has been so dry, there has been no need to mow. The next meeting is scheduled for the first Saturday in May.
There will be a memorial service for G. Beckham on September 9th at the Cox Cemetery.
The 42 tournament will be this Saturday night in Richland Springs. The rodeo workers appreciation supper will be September 17th at Elm Grove.
Marilyn and Michael Suber and I attended the memorial service for Santos Elizondo, Sr. last Thursday evening in San Angelo. Funeral services and interment were held in Del Rio on Saturday. Santos was diagnosed in mid June with pancreatic cancer. He was Stacie (Smith) Elizondo’s father-in-law. He was a good man and will be missed by all who knew him. We send our sympathy to his wife, Nonie, and Santos, Stacie and Sophia. Amy and Rex Tucker and family also attended the memorial service.
The Richland Springs Coyotes really put it on Panther Creek last Friday night by a score of 70-8. The mercy rule ended the game in the second quarter. The Coyotes will now host Austin Hill Country this Friday night.
Marilyn, Bethany and Amos Moses Suber, along with Amy, Jaxon, Georgia and Jesse Tucker all took part in the 5K walk at the Goat Cook-off in Brady last Saturday. I can’t say they enjoyed it but they did complete the course, anyway. I heard some complaints about soreness the next day!
