We have had some real winter weather over the weekend with it being cloudy and drizzly with no measurable rainfall. It was 32 degrees this Monday morning.
Our most exciting news of the week is another new great grandson for me! Kreed Andrew Cummings was born to Wiley and Tara Cummings last Thursday, the 6th. He is very tiny, weighing only 4 pounds and 16 1/2 inches long at birth but he is doing fine and will probably be home by the time you read this. Charlie and Kitty Cummings are the proud paternal grandparents and Gary and Rhonda Wilson are the proud maternal grandparents. Kreed is welcomed home by his two sisters, Kiley and Kinley and his big brother, Karter. I can hardly wait to see him! This makes seven great grandkids for me, now. I’m sure his great uncle, Andy Cummings, is proud of his namesake.
The Richland Springs Coyotes will now play the Rule Bobcats this Saturday in San Angelo for the state six-man championship title of Division I. The Coyotes defeated Trinidad last Friday by a score of 70-22, ending the game in the third quarter with the 45 point mercy rule. If I am not mistaken, the Coyotes have “45-ed” every single opponent this season. That is impressive!
As expected, due to the football game on Saturday night, the Elm Grove Community Christmas party has been moved to Friday night so those who choose to can attend both events. We invite you to the Christmas party where finger foods will be served and the beverages will be provided by the hostesses. Come and join us for an old-fashioned country Christmas.
Somehow or another the last line of this column was omitted last week. I wanted everyone to know about the Christmas carolers from Mercury who came calling the previous week. They sang several songs and left a pretty little loaf of bread. It was a very pleasant surprise.
