Promontory Pointers 8/17/11
Boyd and Tyrell Udy took their horses up to Oakley, Utah, to a cutting. They stayed Friday night in Boyd’s fancy horse trailer. When asked if the trailer had air conditioning, Boyd reported, “No, but we didn’t need it; it was cold up there!” It was even nice and cool during the day. It made the job of moving the cattle around for the cow cutters very pleasant. The two men took Tyrell’s horse, Thunderhoofs, and Boyd’s horse, Crocker. Crocker was taken out of retirement for the two-day event. “He hasn’t forgotten anything,” Boyd says proudly. “He’s still a good old horse; and he loves it.” Jim and Starr Mitchell delivered several loads of large tree branches to the green landfill over by the Box Elder County Landfill. This landfill makes mulch out of tree branches and other things. Jim has been fishing on the Weber River with his friend Al. The boys caught several brown trout and brought them home to eat. Orson Poulsen reports the Poulsen garden is growing well and they are just waiting for it to yield a meal or two. Jeannette is still enjoying her volunteer job at Bear River Valley Hospital. Kaye Draper went to lunch with Winnie Richman at the Coachman Restaurant on State Street in Salt Lake City Tuesday. The ladies enjoyed getting caught up on news and family events. Kaye has also done a lot of bingo-ing. She is resting after a small surgery Wednesday. This intrepid lady went to church Sunday and out to Bill and Carolyn Bolton’s for dinner and cards Sunday evening. Cleo Petit reports going line dancing on Monday. “I really like the exercise,” she says. Their garden is up and producing food for meals now. On Tuesday, Winnie Richman drove to Salt Lake City for a doctor’s appointment. On Wednesday Winnie, Carolyn Carter and their granddaughter Marriah made great progress on their paintings. Actually, Marriah started two new small canvasses. On Friday Winnie, Heather Lott, Lyle Richman, Aaron, April, Marriah, Zacharie and Skyler Richman, and Fred and Carolyn Carter met at JC’s Diner in Elwood to celebrate Winnie’s birthday (too many to count!). One of the highlights of the evening was finding Bob and Vicky Lowery eating there, too. Bob and Winnie go way back to high school horseback riding days. Chores, church, choir practice, home and chores filled Winnie’s day on Sunday.
