Different amounts of rain fell around the Bend this past week. Reports of 2 inches down to 1 inch depending on where you lived. Sunday afternoon a little shower fell leaving just more than 2/10 inch in the rain gauge. Bonnie Millican reported that a cool breeze was all they received from the showers.The home of Pat and Bonnie Millican was a busy place over the weekend. Their son Geoff, Lindsay and grandson Henry came in on Friday afternoon and stayed until Sunday. Geoff’s high school class reunion was held Saturday night at the Fiesta Winery. He didn’t have to drive very far to attend! Forty of his classmates and spouses came. Everyone had a great time. Grandson Henry stayed with Pat and Bonnie while his parents attended the reunion. Bonnie reported that he is like every two-year old very busy and talking like a jaybird. He sleeps on a Pac-N-Play crib at the foot of the bed. After he was put to bed Friday night he discovered that by standing up and reaching just right, he could grab Pat’s big toe. He tried hard to get “Pop-pop”to play, but soon gave up and went to sleep. He fights bedtime like most two year olds. The mantle clocks fascinate him when they chime. He was told that when the clock in the bedroom struck the half hour again he had to go to bed. He kept watching it while Bonnie read books to him. When it struck the half hour, he cried and begged to “make it stop-no bed”, but he survived, as did Pat and Bonnie.Bonnie reported that Bible School is going on at Bend Methodist Church this week. It will end on Wednesday. On Sunday night 13 kids registered. The theme is an ocean one this year (Going Deep with God) and they all seem excited about the crafts, stories, puppet, snacks and time together. The little kids are Angel Fish and the older ones are Anemones and she reported that they are all precious.Sylvia Stinnett reported that cousins from Houston and Brenham visited Friday the 13th. Peggy Wierzbichi and Beatrice Turner of Houston stopped in Brehamn and picked up another cousin, Maxine Sklar. The women from Houston thought they would have to have a boat to get out of Houston because of all the rain and flooding, but they found a safe way out and came to the Bend.Dickie Eckhoff and Jerome and Shirley joined the ladies and had a good time visiting with everyone.Gunner and Susie Stinnett has spent some time visiting grand parents and Aunt Autumn .

They enjoyed the parade and all the stuff that goes along with Spring Ho.Lesa Preece and son Clay spent a weekend at the Sulphur Springs recently fishing and having fun in their kayaks. They may have been having so much fun in the kayaks that very little fishing was done and who could blame them. She did relate that all her puppies are gone and she has gone in the chicken business now.Lillie Bell Marley was back in the hospital, but is now back at home. Jolene Lively is still in the Lampasas Rehab and Nursing home.
