I received a Christmas card this week from David and Debra Stribling. They had used a picture from the beautiful snow we received in February, and it had their cattle and horse framed in the snow.
I saw Debra Stribling and Rhandi Fails Tuesday night, and they reported enjoying the weekend with Brayden and Alexis as visitors. They came home with Debra on Friday night and enjoyed the beautiful weather outside on Saturday as they played with Case. On Saturday night, they all went to the North Pole of Texas and had an enjoyable time. They saw Marilee Fisher and Brenda Allen there and then came on to Sulphur Springs for ice cream at the Dairy Queen.
I also saw Carla Walters Tuesday night. She reported that her mother-in-law Sherrie Walters was released from the hospital in Dallas yesterday and is much improved following a lengthy stay. Carla wanted to thank everyone for all the prayers and concern for Sherrie.
Marilee Fisher reported that they attended the annual Lloyd and Lucille Fisher family Christmas on Sunday in the Yantis Community Center, and had a wonderful time with family. More than 50 of Lloyd and Lucille’s family members were in attendance.
Bryant Fisher is in Savannah, Ga., this week attending a Dairy Farmers of America meeting.
Vera Harrington dropped by this week and reported visiting with the granddaughters via telephone. They are all busy with Christmas programs and getting ready for semester tests at school. Of course, they are looking forward to the holidays and some time to come to Reilly Springs.
Joyce McDonald enjoyed a belated birthday celebration on Saturday as Judy, Jan, and Bobby all met her for lunch at Plain ‘N’ Fancy Sandwich Shoppe. Her birthday was on Thursday of last week, but Saturday was the first time everyone could get together.
Joyce had a full weekend as Jan and Jacy Lawrence and a friend, Kelly Heinrich, from Muleshoe arrived on Thursday night and stayed until Sunday. They shopped at Canton, and Joyce accompanied them on Friday for some shopping.
Joyce also had a doctor’s appointment in Dallas on Tuesday and got a great report that she is thankful for. She, Judy and Bobby celebrated at Pei Wei for lunch.
Until next week, continue to enjoy the Christmas season and remember it is a time of giving and sharing. Remember our troops who defend our freedoms, and ask for them an extra measure of safety and a safe return trip home. Pray for love in our hearts, harmony in our community, and peace in our land. God bless Reilly Springs, Hopkins County, and America. Happy holidays!
