Happy birthday to Bailey Penny on Aug. 1, C.L. “Butch” Hall on Aug. 4, and Abi Darrow (Jeremy Darrow’s daughter) on Aug. 4.

Happy anniversary to my Aunt and Uncle Mary and Kenneth Smith, on Aug. 2.

This Saturday, I attended the wedding of Kendra Dannheim and Blake Fisher. It was a beautiful wedding despite the heat. The event took place at the home of the bride’s grandparents’ in the Greenview Community, just behind Three Oaks Plant Farm on FM 3389. The couple were married by Yvonne King in the scenic setting of shade trees and a pond. The bridesmaids and groomsmen coordinated with the blue and brown colors of the wedding. Many weddings have a glasses of unity sand. The bride and groom each pour sand from their containers into a single container to symbolize their two lives combining into one life. Kendra and Blake actually poured soil from each of their homes into their unity vase instead of using a store-bought decorative sand. Kendra’s soil was from Greenview and Blake’s soil was from the Fisher’s home in Reilly Springs. After the ceremony the guests walked across to the back yard of the house, signed the guest book, and were served a catered buffet meal of beef and chicken fajitas with all of the trimmings. The meal was catered by Wright’s Catering in Birthright and believe me their fajitas were just as good as the BBQ they cater. Guests totaled near 150 and a band was playing while everyone enjoyed the food and watching the bride and groom dance. Congratulations Blake and Kendra! The Fishers left for their Cozumel, Mexico, honeymoon on Monday.

Clay Smith will wed Dichele Wiser this Saturday, Aug. 7, at the Savannah near North Hopkins. Their wedding is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m.

Larry Mabe had surgery to remove an aneurism Monday. I have not heard any details as to how the surgery went.

I was so sorry this week to learn of the death of Toby Reeves’ mother. She had battled cancer for some time. Toby and I graduated together in 2001.

Has anyone eaten at the Pioneer Café in Sulphur Springs? Faye Tipps and I went there last week and it was really good. The food was “good ole home cookin’” with large portions. If you get a chance, stop in and try their lunch special. They have a different special Monday through Friday.
