Brashear News for Dec. 24, 2009

Christmas Eve is here! My grandkids are so excited. I want to wish everyone a wonderful Christmas and may the New Year bring you many blessings, peace, and good health.

I received a call from Mrs. Shirley Burney this week and she wanted to tell everyone in Brashear hello. She has been in and out of town for a while helping with her second son, who has cancer. Our prayers go to her family. She also wanted to let me know that if you are a Postmaster that gender doesn’t matter. You are still a Postmaster not a Postmistress. Thank you, Shirley. I appreciate being corrected so that I am politically correct in this day and age.

Fleta Childers called, and while visiting she mentioned that she had a 7-month-old schnauzer that was giving her fits. She sounded like she would like to give this puppy away. If interested, just give a call her at 612-2379.

I hope you have noticed that Judge Cletis Millsap is trying to get our area considered a disaster because of the heavy rains in October and November. Why don’t we give our Commissioner Beth Wisenbaker a call and let her know how bad our roads are? I know that they have been replacing two bridges in our area lately. With some disaster assistance we may be able to get our roads repaired.

I know that a lot of you will have family coming in for a visit during the holidays. I would love to hear from you and to let everyone know who came to visit and how they are all doing. My children are ready to head this way. My daughter said the other day, “Ready to head to Brashear,” and I replied “Is Brashear ready for you?” Her comment back was “Are you and Dad ready for all of us?” You know kids, always thinking of their parents. Ha! 8)

Hasn’t the weather been nice? While out walking on Monday, Sable, my granddaughter, asked “why, if it was the first day of winter, it was so warm?” She had me there. So I just told her sometimes in Texas we get all kinds of weather. Just a moment ago I heard thunder. We had a neighbor once in Rockwall, Allie Mims, who said that if you heard thunder in December we were in for some rough weather in January. I cannot find any saying that supports this theory. Does anyone remember this old saying? I did not go check the Farmer’s Almanac. I know that we are about to have some really cold weather blow in, so batten down the hatches, get the firewood ready and cows fed because it will be cold if you have to be outside.

There will be an AARP Meeting on Monday, Jan. 4, at the Senior Citizens Center at 150 Martin Luther King. Lunch will be provided at 11 a.m.. The program begins at 11:30 a.m. and the guest speaker will be Roberta Vanderburg from Hospice at Memorial For more information, call AARP President Pat Mallory.

Please remember those who have no family and check on them the next few days to ensure they have enough food and are warm. Take care, and until next week, may God bless you and yours.
