Saturday, July 2, was Kris Udy’s grandmother, Ora Thompson’s 100th birthday. A family reunion was held. Also on July 2, Bodee Udy had a birthday. “Happy Birthday, Bodee,” from dad, Boyd Udy.
The Udy family and the Jon Thompson family went to Yellowstone National Park for a week. “It actually got cold,” while they attended a performance of the Bar J Wranglers in Jackson, Boyd said. One of the most interesting nights for Boyd was watching a wolf teach her young to hunt for elk for almost an hour.
Boyd’s nephew, Wyatt Garn, started jumping up and down pointing up a mountain during a stop. Although he did not see anything, about 30 cars stopped. Boyd calls it a Wyatt jam.
Orson and Jeannette Poulsen drove to Salt Lake City on Saturday for the birthdays of two of Jeannette’s grandchildren. They ate breakfast together.
On the morning of July 4, the couple drove to Perry to take pictures of Elder L. Tom Perry being driven in a buggy from Eli Anderson of Bothwell. Elder Perry, his wife and several grandchildren were in the Perry City parade commemorating the 100th year anniversary of its founding.
Saturday evening Orson and Jeannette drove to Snowville Park to listen to brother Dennis and the West Desert Trio Plus One band.
Cleo and Gary Petit did some fishing in Alden, Montana. They left the morning of July 4, and came back Wednesday evening. They caught a lot of fish and brought some home.
Kaye Draper and friend, Marlene, ate dinner at IHOP Monday. Wednesday she played bingo. Friday Bea, Lucy and Kaye went to IHOP for lunch. July 4, Kaye’s apartment building association served watermelon then held a raffle for a quilt. That evening Kaye and a group of others watched four different fireworks displays from the building’s driveway.
Monday, Clynn and Winnie Richman drove to Logan for a meeting then to Brigham City for a late lunch. In Honeyville they watched grandson, Brantzen Richman play his final baseball game of the season. He whacked one down the first base line and almost made it before he was tagged out.
Tuesday, Winnie took grandchildren Marriah, Zack and Skyler, and a cousin Kayla Mitchell to see “Cars 2” in Perry. Winnie was glad to have their mother, April go too. After the movie they went to Burger King for lunch. Winnie would like to thank Dr. Keller and his staff for the blood test Tuesday.
Wednesday, Winnie, granddaughter, Marriah, and Carolyn Carter (Marriah’s other grandparent) finished their paintings. “We love to finish one, but we don’t love trying to decide what to do next,” they all agreed.
Friday, son Lyle came to dinner, put in the air conditioner and turned off the heater. Sunday, son Aaron fixed the 390 T tractor’s starter motor and batteries. After spaghetti and meat sauce he returned home.
July 4, Clynn and Winnie abandoned the ranch for breakfast at McDonald’s, a trip to Harbor Freight in Ogden and a drive up Logan Canyon to see the river run-off. It was roaring! Clynn didn’t want to return home so they drove up Cub River road and stopped in Franklin, Idaho, for a drink.
The tired couple was glad to get back to the ranch! Winnie did chores and discovered the mares and foals missing. She found them grazing on an unfenced portion of the Double S Bar. She directed them home and into the mountain pasture.
Jim and Starr Mitchell drove to Idaho to go fishing with Tracy and Deb Petit last Wednesday. They caught some wall-eyed and perch. When they got home they had dinner of fish and sweet potato fries. Their garden is doing well. They have already harvested and eaten peas and broccoli.
