Folks in Reilly Springs are still looking for some rain. As we enter the beginning of summer, it is really dry in our area. The month of May didn’t catch us up on moisture, and it looks like a long, hot, and dry summer.

Brodie Koon has been moved to the rehab center at Hopkins County Memorial Hospital and continues to improve. Give Mary a call to check on his progress.

Jana and Weldon DeWitt enjoyed a few days at Lake Quitman this past week with Jandi, Landri and Sam. They all stopped by to see Joyce McDonald on Saturday. Jandi, Landri, and Sam returned to Muleshoe on Sunday.

Sympathy is extended to the Autry Harmon family. Autry passed away Tuesday night in Hopkins County Memorial Hospital. Services are pending with Murray-Orwosky Funeral Home.

Marilee Fisher and her mother, Ethel Winton, went to Fort Worth for a visit with her brother, Dennis Winton, and his family. They planned on visiting for a couple of days and then travel to Boyd and Decatur to visit with other relatives. Later in the week, they planned to attend a graduation for another relative in Aubrey, then return home this weekend.

Meanwhile, Bryant Fisher is staying at home and milking his goats and working on his goat’s milk permit and hopes to have it ready in a few days to begin selling fresh goat’s milk.

Meanwhile, Kendra Fisher is looking forward to being out of school and completing her master’s degree this summer. She hopes to have everything finished for an August graduation.

J.R. and Vanessa Fisher have some new beagle dogs they are proud of. They also report that there isn’t much growing in the produce department, as the weather has been too dry to plant anything that will grow.

I heard from Rhandi Stribling Fails this week, and she reported that on Saturday evening she and Case attended a 5th birthday party for Hannah Teer. They later joined Linda Fails, Laura Teer, Mary Attlesey and Weston Teer for dinner at the Miller Grove Fish Fry. We know they got full ...

On Sunday afternoon, Rhandi, Debra Stribling and Case all enjoyed swimming at Brandon and Becky Striblings’ home. Case especially enjoyed swimming with Brayden and Alexis.

On Monday afternoon, Shane, Melissa, Carter and Easton Larue, along with Bailee Gilbreath, joined Cody, Rhandi, and Case Fails for grilled burgers and fun on the Slip and Slide.

Debra and David Stribling have a visitor from California as Mandi Walker Berger was home and dropped by with Marcille Graham and Ty Davis for a visit. They visited “Oscar Mayer,” the pig. (I won’t ask about that one.)

On Tuesday night, Debra and Rhandi attended a graduation party at Juan Pablo’s for Jena Burns, a 2011 Graduate from Miller Grove High School.

Sympathy is extended to the Sells family this week, as Melba Ruth Sells, the wife of former Seymore community resident Troy Sells, passed away in Dallas. Services are set for Friday in Sulphur Springs, with burial in Seymore Cemetery.

Friends in the Reilly Springs community were saddened at the death of James Beck, who passed away on Saturday. Services were in Sulphur Springs today.

Vera Harrington has been “keeping the road hot” lately, visiting with granddaughters in Waxahachie. She’s been attending a number of year-end school events, and cheering on the granddaughters in all of their activities.

“It’s about time for them to get out of school and make az visit to Reilly Springs,” Vera said this week. “I’m about ready for them to do the traveling, as I’m getting too old to make so many trips.”

Sandra Glenn and Kenneth and Sharlotte Hyde all attended their 50th high school graduation reunion in Sulphur Springs on Saturday night and reported having a wonderful time. “We saw some people we hadn’t seen in 50 years,” reported Sandra. “It was great to see everyone and we all had a great time.”

Until next week, try to stay cool, and remember our troops who defend our freedoms around the world. Ask for them an extra measure of safety and safe 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.
