This has been a very uneventful week. Daily trips to Wichita Falls for radiation and a trip to a doctor or two has been what’s going on with me. Treatments are going well, and doctors are very satisfied with my progress, and that’s what it’s all about.
With Veterans’ Day coming in midweek things were pretty quiet over here. The courthouse and post office were both closed, and those two places being the “hub” of excitement, it left very few places to find out any news! The flags at the memorial site look great. Dennis Duke’s grandson Zachariah Faris and come so his friends put them out. It’s great that those kids are doing that. It is a good teaching experience for them. I’m told that the meeting on Saturday at the cemetery was impressive, although not too well attended. The Methodist preacher, Curtis Schroeder read the names of those who have served this country and passed away during the past year.
A wonderful way to honor those who served their country so bravely and courageously. We hope this will be an annual event, and as time passes the crowd will increase.
Munday lost a great, solid citizen on Wednesday, Nov. 11, and many of us lost a good friend as well, when word was received of the death of Robert Hosea. Robert’s health had been declining for quite some time but had worsened just the last two weeks. I knew Robert well and never heard him say anything negative about anyone.
He was a ’45 grad of Munday High School, and graduated with my sister and also a cousin, Bonnie Reid Perkins, with whom he maintained a close relationship until the end. He and Bonnie shared the same birthday, and until now were only a few of the remaining surviving class members. His funeral and graveside rites were held on Sunday, Nov. 15 at Johnson Memorial Cemetery.
Last weekend Wyman and Sylinda Meinzer hosted a get-together when several of their “school pals” from the graduating classes of that era met for a three-day weekend. About 14 showed up and reported a wonderful time. Among those attending were Michael Driver of Albuquerque, NM, Brenda Conner Kemp of Houston, and Glenda Conner Ainsworth, who lives in Alabama. They all came by to see me, and I surely did enjoy them. They are all pretty special to me.
With some rain in the forecast, it’s cloudy this evening. I guess we need some rain but don’t know if we are going to have any or not. Time will tell.
And congratulations to our Mustangs and coaches for a season played well thus far. I’m so proud of all of them and hope their winning ways continue.
Also congratulations to the girls, who lost at Regional last night to a team from Veribest. What a name for a place to beat us but guess their team kinda fits the town! Anyway, we did well so far as we went, and I’m proud of all of them and our coach, Cody Propps, and his wife Gabby.
