It’s been a very hot and dry week around our little town. We are getting ready to have our temperatures climb up above 100 this week. We are in great need of rain. Maryland is flooding and Florida is about to have a visit from Hurricane Albert. We have a lot to be thankful for even in the midst of the hot and dry weather.
I’ve had Brionna home with me since Thursday evening. We went to Henrietta Saturday afternoon to see the wedding of Morgan and Jim Roberts. It was a very nice wedding. Brionna caught the bridal bouquet. Nolan Brown caught the groom’s garter. After all that excitement, we went to Nocona to see Mom for a little while.
Sunday afternoon, my in-laws came over from Denison. We went out to the cemetery and buried Reid’s urn from his cremation. There were a few folks out at the cemetery that were taking care of their loved ones grave sites. I took some flowers out to our grave site on Memorial Day. The cemetery really looks good. It is freshly mowed.
This Friday, we will be having our sidewalk sales, starting at 8:30. I am not sure what time Tina or Dennis will be starting their sales.
This next Tuesday our city council will meet at 6:00pm.
This past week, several folks from our local communities have passed away. Sandy Farris from Ryan, passed away this past week. Prayers to her family and friends during their loss. Cecilia Harnois’ husband, Robert, passed away the same day. Prayers to Cecilia and her family and friends during their loss, also.
Ryan is losing one of our families that has been part of our community for over 30 years. Larry Ninman and his family are in the process of selling their home and moving closer to Larry’s mom. They still plan on making trips back to Ryan on occasions. Good luck to them during this transition.
Kim’s news for this week:
Thanks for all the knowledge from the Cowboy College. Lots of education like Dustan’s Indian fire starter demonstration.
Brionna was back in town, we love having her around.
Everyone have a blessed week. Pray for rain and for each other.
