Orson and Jeannette Poulsen report their week was busy. Jeannette left with friends from the Thatcher-Penrose 1st Ward and Melba Didericksen from TP 2nd Ward to go to the Vernal Temple Wednesday and Thursday.
Orson, meanwhile, spent Wednesday through Saturday, with a very capable Spencer Petersen as the assistant Scout leader, with four scouts at scout camp. Orson also reports his horses are enjoying all the grass and weeds he cuts for them to add to their regular feed of hay.
Jim and Starr Mitchell report their garden is finally looking pretty good. Their new fruit and nut trees are getting more leaves. Plans are taking shape to protect them from deer and grasshoppers.
The couple went to the Smithfield Livestock Auction Thursday. Starr says they saw some cute little animals and Jim says they will want to go again.
Jim traveled to Idaho for free fishing day. He caught a couple of real good trout.
Cleo Petit reports her and Gary’s garden is coming along fine. They have tomatoes, peppers and squash among other things. Their fence worked well until last year when a deer got in and did some damage. This year, so far, everything is okay.
Kaye Draper’s square dancing club held their last Monday evening dance before summer break. They had a nice meal.
Kaye’s brother-in-law Bill Bolton is home from the hospital recovering. Kaye has been bingo-ing a lot and got to call the numbers Wednesday. She says the Relief Society sisters in her ward are practicing for a singing part in a July sacrament meeting.
Clynn and Winnie Richman are grateful to Greg and Heather Lott for coming to the ranch to help after work on Monday.
On Tuesday, Winnie drove to town for the piano lessons with Marriah and Skyler and then to a birthday party for Skyler and Brittney afterward. Pizza, cake and ice cream were the order of the day. Of course presents came first. “I had a great time,” Winnie says.
On Wednesday, DeLoy Richman and Joyner Lofthouse came to visit Clynn while Winnie was at art lessons now in the Clearfield City building.
On Thursday, Clynn and Winnie drove to Bear River City to watch grandson Brantzen Richman play pitching machine baseball.
On Friday, Carolyn Carter called Winnie to tell her the steeple had been placed on the last tower of the Brigham City Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Clynn and Winnie hurried to drive in and see it. Then they drove to Ogden and Layton for ranch tools and writing pen supplies.
On Sunday, Aaron Richman came to help Winnie fix the big tractor’s fuel filter leak, battery cable and radiator problem.
