How’s everyone holding up these days? I went to San Antonio for a week and came back to the same old hot! Couldn’t anyone get a response to a request for cooler weather? I had several messages on my recorder but they were erased. I tracked Pearl down, but didn’t get a chance to find the others. Sorry, if you needed something in the article it will not make it this week!
According to Pearl, she knew both Virginia Glaze and Gene Wood. She went to school with both their fathers in Lakeview. She was happy to report the old school house is till standing. She knows that, because she has used it many times. She says she went to school 11 years because Pap Murry thought she was a good ball player and needed her on the team. She would love to have Virginia and Gene give her a call. She says the bird houses in her front yard were made from the lumber of the old Glaze home. Her son Bill Allen and Gene Christian made the houses. She says they can be seen for a mile, especially the one with the red roof; her number is 452-3212, so please give her a call if you have a moment. Pearl also had Beth Smith and Fred Wilson come by for a visit.
The City Council will hold its monthly meeting Monday. I will report on the events of the meeting next week. The Cemetery Committee will meet on the 12th; everyone is welcome at both meetings.
Teachers will attend GT training the 12th through the 15th. Regular teacher in service will begin on the 18th. I can’t believe summer is over! I’m looking forward to seeing all my kids back! I hope everyone has been saving their box tops over the summer. It would be wonderful to present Mrs. Gossett with bunches of box tops the first week of school! She has had a busy summer reorganizing the library, and setting up a new system. I’m not exactly sure what that means, other than more work for her.
Monday will also be another play day event. Carol Bryant says the finals will be in September. She will also give me a date for a benefit play day to be held shortly after the finals. All proceeds will go to the young girl in San Saba with the brain tumor. I hope everyone turns out for such a wonderful cause.
The Coyote Classic will take place the weekend of the 25th. Our local churches will provide food for coaches as we have done in the past. Can you believe it is time to start thinking 5th Quarters and football! We wish all of our athletes the very best of seasons.
Once again I have a house full of grandkids. Writing an article with five happy voices penetrating your memory cells as you type, just doesn’t work well for me! Plus one of the world’s stupidest programs is playing in the other ear. I hate to take it personally, but they are portraying this teacher as a complete idiot. I suppose some half brained writer thinks it’s funny to make a teacher look ridiculous. I find myself totally disgusted by Hollywood humor!
I guess I’m going to give up and quit writing because I have no idea what I have written! I’m not sure it even makes sense!
Please pray for rain this week; we are dying around here! No one is saying anything about the summer of 1980, but we must be close to the record for days over 100 degrees. Pray for our government, our elections, our President and most of all our wonderful troops who are sacrificing their time, families and lives in some cases to keep us safe. God can make a way out of this mess. Have a wonderful week; why not take the time to do something nice for a neighbor or friend. Remember, a kind word can turn a bad day around.
