Dacy, Elise and Eli Campbell visited Robert, Yvonne, and Wesley Weir on Wednesday. Yvonne says, “They delivered their dogs for us to baby sit and brought birthday gifts.” (Yvonne’s birthday was on Saturday, May 4.) Yvonne and I had dinner at Liefie Li Vine South African restaurant in Winnsboro on Friday evening, and then we returned to Sulphur Springs for the Choral Society’s Spring Concert at the First Methodist Church. Both the food and the music were wonderful! On Saturday Dakota Weir and his friend Stacy went to Wesley’s Buddy Baseball game in Paris with Robert and Yvonne, and then went to “Genes Flea Market” and “Justa’s.” That afternoon Yvonne attended Rosa Duckworth’s 95th birthday party at Kids Kingdom. The Weirs went to the Farmer’s Market and Lou Viney’s on Saturday night. On Sunday Destri Weir met Yvonne for lunch in Greenville after church. She and Yvonne shopped and visited. Yvonne comments, “It was a busy, fun week.”
