I heard from Rhandi Stribling Fails this week, and she reported that they are about “birthdayed out.” Case attended his first birthday party on Saturday, when Kiley, the granddaughter of Charlotte Stribling Burns and the late Larry Burns, celebrated her first birthday. Then, on Sunday, Rhandi hosted a 19th birthday party at her home for Baylee Gilbreath.
Case then received a special visit from his grandmother, Linda Alvis, on Sunday afternoon. Do you think the boy might get spoiled? If not, I’m certain he was worn out by Sunday night.
I talked to Vera Harrington this week, and she continues to improve. She had returned for a follow-up visit to the doctor and reported “things were getting somewhat back to normal.” Remember Vera as she recuperates and give her a call to monitor her progress. Although we tend to sometimes want to stay home, when you’re confined to those four walls for an extended period of time, sometimes they begin to close in on you. This is wishing Vera a speedy recovery.
Vera also allowed that she was grateful for the calls, especially those that she had received from Waxahachie. It seems like the granddaughters are keeping up with Vera and wondering when she will feel like coming for a visit.
The Reilly Spring Supper Club canceled their Monday night meeting, what with the weather getting bad and the Fishers trying to get things at the farm prepared for colder weather. They’ve had a “new crop” of baby goats and wanted to make certain that all of them were in a warm and dry place before the temperatures fell below freezing.
Several from our community were in attendance at the 3rd Annual Lights of Life Gala on Saturday night at the Civic Center. It was a beautiful event and well-attended by the citizens of Hopkins County. Monies raised will be used to purchase equipment for Hopkins County Memorial Hospital and to construct a therapy garden for children.
Friday night found many in our community attending the annual Yantis homecoming activities. Congratulations to all of the Homecoming Court for being selected, and a special congratulations is offered to seniors Daniel Cerretani and Amanda McKinney for being selected by their classmates as 2009 Homecoming King and Queen. Both the Owls and Lady Owls won their match-ups with the Quinlan Boles Hornets. The Yantis Owls JV also won their game. The Owls and Lady Owls are in contention for playoff spots, so go out and support them in their second round of play. You’ll certainly be glad you made the effort. Plus, you’ll see some fast-paced basketball action.
Until next week, continue to stay warm, and think toward springtime when you get cold. Remember our troops who defend our freedoms and ask for them an extra measure of safety. Pray for love in our hearts, harmony in our community, and peace in our land. God bless Reilly Springs, Hopkins County, and America.
