Boyd and Kris Udy had all their children out for a New Year’s dinner on Sunday. It was a fun time and good to get together. Boyd comments, “It’s too cold to do much more than what you have to!”
Orson and Jeannette Poulsen went to a movie with friends on New Year’s Day. After the movie the foursome went out to dinner. “We had a good time,” Orson says.
Kaye Draper and her card playing friends had a New Year’s Eve party while they played cards. Then they stayed up to watch the fireworks and the Utah Ball drop at midnight (all on TV). On Jan. 26, she drove out to sister-in-law Carolyn Bolton’s for an after-Christmas dinner and cards. On Jan. 27, Kaye did some karaoke at the Liberty Senior Center and then went square dancing with the Swinging Singles at their club. Toward the end of the week she almost got in a car wreck due to her window defogger breaking.
Jim and Starr Mitchell took a real nice drive over into Cache Valley and then up to Franklin. It was a scenic drive with all the snow covered fields and mountains. The couple stayed home New Year’s Eve and enjoyed their heater. As to making any New Year’s resolutions, Starr says, “I make resolutions throughout the whole year. A resolution can help me accomplish my goals.”
Gary and Cleo Petit didn’t go out New Year’s Eve. Cleo went line dancing on Monday. The regular teacher is on vacation so her relief teacher is mostly doing the usual dances.
On Monday, Dec. 27, Aaron and April Richman came out to the ranch to help Winnie Richman feed hay to the calves in the field. “It’s too cold to wait another week to feed,” Clynn says.
On Tuesday, Winnie convinced Clynn he needed to see the horse in the movie “Tangled.” “Whoever did the part for the horse really knew horses,” Winnie says.
On Thursday, Clynn had another appointment with Dr. Long and her staff. Clynn is doing well again. The couple stopped by the Bear River Valley Co-op for grain on the way home. A quick phone call brought Colton and Caden Lott out to off-load the grain and do chores for Winnie.
An early New Year’s Eve watching the “ball” drop in Times Square in New York City (10 p.m. here) helped the Richman’s be in prime twig for the Rose Bowl on New Year’s Day. Way to go TCU!
