Still no rain and the weather can’t decide to remain cool or stay on the warm side. Sunday it went back to the summer temps in the 80’s, but early Monday the morning temp was very brisk. There was a couple of days with a light frost, but the trees aren’t shedding their leaves as of yet. The deer are out and seem to be everywhere at all times of the day, but especially in the early mornings and late evenings. The hunting this year should be good.
Remember to fix your clocks this weekend, fall back. You get an extra hour sleep.
The report on LaNell Daniels was good in that she found what all the problems were. She had bursitis in her hip and a shot in the hip fixed the problem. The breathing problem was solved and now at night she has a machine that keeps it regular.
Thursday LaNell and Jane were in Round Rock seeing the foot doctor and both ladies got good results from that visit. What they thought were planters warts turned out to be calluses which the doctor removed. November 11 they will be going back to have LaNell fitted for some special shoes.
Barbara Jones spent Thursday night in Killeen with her friend Brownie Thorpe after going in to visit her doctor at the Metroplex. She received a good report from her doctor.
Jane Clark reported on all the activities that has been going on at her home. Elsa Dan Shirley and son Kenneth came in Thursday night from New Mexico. They came to pick up a load of wood to take back home and to help Jane put all the Christmas decorations and the tree up.
Friday they were busy going to garage sales which of course made them hungry so to keep up their strength they ate at Eve's in Lampasas. Saturday other members of the family Doug, Kristi Messer, Jamie Houdyshell and Gladys Brister helped put up all the decorations. They did take time out to play a couple of card games after lunch before getting back to decorating. Emerson and Ethan and Elliot Brister, the two grandsons, went to the old Brister home place staying clear of all the decorating.
Sunday the home of Jim and OraBeth Hicks was a busy place. Their granddaughters’ Ruby and Jimma Hicks of San Saba were out for lunch, as was Jimmy, Mary Hicks and their family.
No report was received from Jerome and Shirley Meischen, but the paper did report that Texas won their game Saturday and you can be sure that the family was cheering for the Texas Longhorns.
