Tommy and Reid Long traveled to Pasadena on Wednesday, Jan. 6, to attend the BCS National Championship Game featuring the University of Texas and Alabama football teams. On Thursday before the game, they attended the ESPN Tailgate Party where they watched the ESPN Gameday show and saw former UT greats Ricky Williams and Vince Young. They also had their picture made with the national championship crystal football trophy. Tommy reports, "The weather was perfect and we hoped for the best to come during the football game. As you know we lost our great quarterback early in the game and struggled to score points without him. Although Texas lost the game we were very proud of how the team played to make it a very exciting and rewarding event. Friday after the game we visited the Getty Center and observed the beautiful artwork housed there — works by Gauguin, Van Gogh, Monet, and a special show of Rembrandt art. We also visited Santa Monica and Venice Beach on the coast. We finished the day with a malt in the Disney Soda Fountain on Hollywood Boulevard. It was a very nice trip."

J.R. and Donna Durst traveled to Prescott, Ark., on Sunday to visit two of J.R.'s aunts and a few of his cousins. Donna reports that they enjoyed watching the Cowboys win Saturday night.

Dacy and Elise Campbell visited Robert and Yvonne Weir and family on Saturday. Yvonne says, "We enjoyed watching Elise get into everything." Dustin Weir and Natalie Kufner came for a visit on Sunday. On Monday they dropped in to see Helen Weir for a little while. Dustin's classes started at The University of Texas at Dallas on Monday night. He is excited about being a full-time student again.

North Hopkins will host Campbell for two varsity basketball games beginning at 3:30 p.m. on Friday. The Beta Club members will be traveling to San Antonio for their annual convention.

Our grandsons, Morgan and Kenden Joslin, went with Chip and me to visit our son, Delayne Vaughn, in Waco on Saturday. We enjoyed a nice lunch together at Ninfa's Mexican Restaurant.
