Sherry Smiddy spent 12 days in Chicago working and she was glad to be home, however she headed back to the Windy City on Monday for another week. She reports, “Daylee Fite's softball team, the 'Horns', has won all three of their games. Cody Fite helped coach with Chanse this week-end for the third win. Brandi Day was working the dugout. The team also had Hadley Hrabal to help on Saturday, as there were a couple of players out. Great game!“ Sandra Wester, Kathy Day and Sherry and Powell were there to see the victory.

Patti Wiebold is having a garage sale on Friday at 8 a.m. The address is 1675 Farm Road 1536.

Debra Wood is home after spending a week and a half with her daughter and son-in-law following knee surgery. She came home last Wednesday and reports she is able to walk with the aid of a cane. She comments, “Still sore and stiff, but with each day I am getting stronger. Having both knees done takes a bit longer getting back to shape.” She started therapy this week and hopes the stiffness will get better. She says, “I couldn't have managed without my family. They have been super! Thanks to whoever mowed my lawn while I was gone. I really appreciate the neighbors keeping an eye on my place while I was away.” She also wants to express her thanks to everyone for the cards, thoughts and prayers.

Yvonne Weir reports that they went to Emory on Friday for Special Olympics. She comments, “… decided that Wes wasn't the fastest runner, but he was the happiest!” He played “buddy baseball” in Paris on Saturday, and then on Sunday they worked in the flower beds and yard.

Landon and Laiken's son, Rylan Joslin, was honored with a party at the Tira Community Center on Sunday afternoon for his first birthday. Several family members and a few friends were there to help him celebrate and everyone enjoyed cake, cookies and ice cream.

Our son, Delayne Vaughn, came for a visit over the weekend. He picked up his grandmother, Grace Vaughn, and they attended the Episcopal church in Sulphur Springs on Sunday morning. After lunch at our house, we all went to Rylan's birthday party. Delayne returned home to Waco later that afternoon.
