We are getting in need of some rainfall since we have not had any in the month of November so far.
The Richland Springs Coyotes defeated the Rochelle Hornets last Friday night by a score of 60-14 to take the district championship. They now play Lometa this Friday night at 7:30 in San Saba for the bi-district title. The Bangs Dragons also won their game last Friday night, beating Wall 40-20. The Dragons were not able to make the playoffs. Charlie, Kitty and Andy Cummings and Ben Dennis went to Bangs to see Theron Parson play in his last high school football game.
Lanell, Kelton and Hannah Parson came by Saturday and picked me up and we went to Brady for Jesse Tucker’s 4th birthday party at Richards Park. Jesse had a large group of friends and family members helping him celebrate and the kids all had a good time in the park.
Andy Cummings and his partner won the 42 tournament last Saturday night. The next tournament will be Dec. 8th in Richland Springs.
I need to get on the telephone more often and find out about my neighbors. I just learned that Wilma Lee has been nursing a back injury which she sustained while helping Curtis haul hay. Now he has to help her with the housework to pay her back. I was also visiting with my neighbor, Yvonne Cottrell, and learned she is working temporarily as a special education teacher in Brady. The Cottrell’s daughter-in-law is doing well after a bout with cancer but they would still appreciate prayers on her behalf.
Marilyn and I had a nice visit with Brenda (Deeds) May at Walmart last Monday. Brenda tells us that her son, Cody, and his wife just became the parents of twins. They are a boy named Cash Riley and a girl named Shadie Grace. That is two more great grandbabies for Bobby and Helen Deeds. Congratulations to all of you on this exciting news!
We were very sorry to hear about the passing of Richard Stengel last week. He and his wife, Donna, were fairly new to the area but he was well liked and will be greatly missed. We send our sympathy to the family.
