PROMONTORY POINTERS 6/29/11
Saturday, Boyd Udy helped the 4-H young people with their horses in reining and working. Son, Tyrell, helped one group while Boyd helped the other. “We’ve got a wonderful bunch of kids,” Boyd says. “My hat is off to their dedicated parents and leaders for their support and many contributions of time and the many other things youth need.”
On Father’s Day, Boyd, Kris and family met at son Bodee’s home where all the kids “just spoiled me!” The whole family attended – kids and grandkids – too many to list here. “They’re all doing wonderful,” Boyd says.
Boyd’s fence is coming along slower than he would like. He has a lot of welding yet to do and the old fence to take out. Besides that there are a huge amount of weeds to chop.
Steven and Ashley Mitchell invited Jim and Starr Mitchell to the Ruby River Restaurant for a Father’s Day dinner. Although Jim and Starr spent most of the day there, they were ready to come home to quiet Promontory life. “There are some cattle and sheep semis going by, but not all the time,” Jim observes. He also says he can deal with the mosquitoes and bugs.
Starr reports she went line dancing with Cleo Petit. She says it’s not only good exercise, but also great socializing.
Kaye Draper attended her Member Location job on Monday morning. That night she attended a birthday dinner for friend Pauline. They ate and played 500 Rummy.
On Wednesday, besides playing bingo, Kaye attended an apartment building resident meeting. On Thursday Kaye had a PAD test on her legs.
On Saturday after her hair-do Kaye met three other ladies for lunch at Millie’s.
Monday, June 13, was Clynn and Winnie Richman’s granddaughter Brittney’s 19th birthday. Although this day was celebrated a week earlier with brother Skyler, Clynn called her to wish her well.
On Tuesday, Winnie attended Marriah and Skyler’s piano lesson. On Wednesday Winnie finished another portrait. Marriah (who is attending during summer vacation) got a real good start on a new painting.
On Sunday the Thatcher/Penrose II choir sang a song during Sacrament meeting. Thank you, Carol and Megan Larsen, for your direction and accompaniment and choice of great music.”
When Winnie got home she prepared for Father’s Day for Clynn and a birthday for granddaughter Reagen Richman. Greg, Heather, Caden, Colton Lott, Lyle, Reagen and Brantzen all shared pizza dippers, cake and ice cream. Special friend, Teia Gonzales came with Reagen.
During a quiet moment in the conversation the topic of dinosaurs came up. Heather recalled many years ago son Colton’s request for information on this topic. He was told that dinosaurs were very old. He turned to Grandpa Clynn and asked, “Grandpa, what do dinosaurs look like?” After much laughter the families dispersed. Winnie did chores, and she and Clynn enjoyed the evening in front of the television.
