The best news from up in our corner of the county is the 2.3 inches of rain which we received. The cold temperatures were not as welcomed, however it is suppose to be warmer this week. There was no doubt about whether or not we had frost this Monday morning; everything was covered in white.
Those Richland Springs Coyotes are still on the road to victory with another win on their side last Friday night. They defeated May by a score of 93-43 in Comanche. They will now face Calvert this Friday night in Lampasas at 7:30 PM. Since I no longer have any grandkids in school here, I don’t keep up with basketball but according to the paper, the Lady Coyotes are doing real well and are undefeated so far. We are proud of them too.
I had a full house for Thanksgiving Day. Present were: Roger and Martha Tucker, from Menard; Rex and Amy Tucker, Jax, Georgia and Jesse from Brady; Stacie Smith from San Angelo; Charlie and Kitty Cummings from Locker; Michael, Marilyn and Bethany Suber from Richland Springs; Sherry Haws from Brownwood; Ken and Lanell Parson, Theron, Kelton and Hannah from Bangs; and Andy Cummings, Billy and Marla Cummings and myself from Elm Grove. The weather was cold but not cold enough to keep the kids off of the trampoline.
June Beakley had her two boys and families home for Thanksgiving. Joining June were Mike, Penny and Travis Beakley from Tomball; Steve and Tammy Beakley from Odessa; and Judy Pointer from Brownwood. Rita Beakley had fallen recently and broken her shoulder and was unable to attend.
Wanda and Ben Dennis celebrated Thanksgiving at home here in Milburn. Ben has now retired from his job in Odessa and moved here full time. I know Wanda is very glad to have him here near her.
Mark your calendars for December 15th. That is the date for the community Christmas party. Wilma Lee and Gloria Weatherman are in charge of the program and they always do a good job.
Sunday after church, I accompanied Marilyn and Bethany Suber to Brownwood where we had lunch at the Section Hand, then went on to visit with Addie and Lowell Long, after a little shopping at Wal-Mart, of course. Addie always says she “was looking for us” but I think we fooled her this time. She was surprised to see us come out while it was snowing!
The holiday dinner and fellowship at Holt Baptist Church will be December 9th after Sunday morning services. You are invited to come and join us.
