Tommy and Patti Wiebold enjoyed a nice weekend with family from out of town. Tommy's sister Cindy Findley, his niece Paul Findley, and two grandchildren, Jordan and Coen Findle,y all came to spend the weekend with “Uncle Tommy and Aunt Patti.” They arrived late Friday evening from Waxahachie, where they reside. On Saturday the kids could not wait to get on the golf cart and go driving around the pasture to see what animals they might spot. They brought fishing poles to go fishing, however, there are no fish in Tommy and Patti's pool, and it was a bit too cool to go to Sandra Wester's for any fishing. Most of their time was spent outside taking Tommy and Patti's Labradors to the pond for some swimming, and they enjoyed throwing sticks for the dogs to fetch out of the water. They also played with the cats and helped Patti pick radishes from her garden. Tommy was the chef for the weekend. On Saturday Sandra Wester came for supper, and a grand meal it was, including T-bone steaks, barbecued chicken, hamburgers and shrimp. Patti had made a trip to the Dallas Farmer's Market on Friday and picked up a lot of fresh vegetables for grilling. They had corn-on-the-cob and Tommy cut up a variety of vegetables including zucchini, squash, new potatoes, red, yellow and green bell peppers and sweet onions. Patti says, “There was enough food to feed most of the community.” Everyone enjoyed all the food. Patti was happy, because with the leftovers, that means no cooking during the week. Tommy built the kids a bonfire on Saturday night for roasting marshmallows. By around 11 p.m. they were sound asleep from a long day of fun. On Sunday, the children were up and ready to go again around 7 a.m., although the adults could have used a couple more hours of sleep, so garage doors came up and the golf cart and 4-wheelers came back out. They loaded up the kids around noon for their trip back to Waxahachie. It was a wonderful weekend, and the kids are already asking when they could come back to Tira for another visit with their aunt and uncle.
