It has rained off and on for the past week although the rain showers have been very scattered. I haven’t heard just how much we have received at Elm Grove but everything seems to be nice and green.
I am behind on my rainfall reports because I was gone all last week. I spent the week with Ken and Lanell Parson and their family in Bangs. They were all busy getting ready for school to start.
I have a new great grandson born to Zane and Hattie Cummings of Barnhart. He weighed 8 lbs 7 ozs, was 21 inches long and has been named Ace Jackson but will be called A.J. Gerald and Glenda are the grandparents.
There were only 5 members present at the Busy Bee quilters last meeting day. They were Gloria and Fay Lusty, Catalina Luna, Grace Hardman and Irene Hammett. Callie Hammett and I were the visitors. Marilyn Miller will bring a quilt to be worked on at the September meeting.
Marilyn Suber and I attended the community meeting August 16th where there were 12 folks present. We enjoyed the visiting after the business meeting. There will be no community meeting in September due to the rodeo appreciation supper on September 20th. There will not be a regular community meeting in October since we will be having the gospel singing on October 18th. Tell all your friends and come and join us.
The next community meeting will be November 15th when plans will be made for the annual Christmas party and program. My goodness, where has the year gone?
Marilyn and I attended the Richland Springs Rodeo last Saturday night. It was a good little rodeo. There were not a lot in attendance, but they are just getting started. We enjoyed watching the kids participate.
I have no grandkids in the rodeos now but after 50 years of rodeoing, I still enjoy going. I also do not have any grandkids playing football since Theron Parson graduated. We have about four years before Kelton Parson starts playing.
Theron has begun classes at Sul Ross. Bethany Suber has begun another year of classes at Tarleton. She had a day off from work and school, so she and Lindsey Roberds joined us for supper on Monday night. It is good to hear the young people talking and laughing.
We were sorry to hear of the passing of Wilma Ford Bond. Services were held at Cedar Park. Wilma was the daughter of Stella and Hassel Ford who were residents of Elm Grove for many years. Stella was a cousin of Jesse and Andy’s.
I hope everyone has a good week and let’s keep on praying for more rain.
