Clouds have formed in the autumn sky this Monday morning. Unfortunately, no rain is in the forecast. The county judge’s office has reinstated the burn ban for San Saba County. With all the dry fall foliage and the lack of rain, it is so important to adhere to these burn bans when issued. I received an email from Marilyn Suber. It sounds as though the Cummings/Subers had a great Thanksgiving. (I know this time of year is especially difficult for those who are without loved ones who have passed on. However, we find comfort in family and memories.) Marilyn and family spent a wonderful weekend in San Antonio. We can all agree that there is nothing like seeing all those beautiful lights along the San Antonio River Walk this time of year, especially through the eyes of a two year old. Marilyn’s Sophia said riding the riverboat was “super fun.” The river walk in San Antonio was a favorite Christmas tradition for me and Jim. The boat ride along the lighted river is truly a magical experience, whatever your age. The play offs are in full swing and the Coyotes continue to be triumphant. “Fixed on Six” is the battle cry!
