PROMONTORY POINTERS 8-31-11
Available online at www.tremontonleader.com Kris Udy says granddaughter Kynzee Mae is 15 months old and into everything she can get into. “She really is the boss!” Kris says.
Orson Poulsen reports he and Jeannette were homebodies last week. “But we weren’t bored,” he says, “just at home. No one came to visit and we didn’t go visiting.” Winnie Richman bought a box of fresh green beans at Paul’s Patch in Perry and spent the better part of Monday putting them in pint jars.
On Tuesday Winnie drove to Brigham Medical Center for a cholesterol test (it’s down from 300 to 105 in six weeks). She then drove home to feed Clynn and herself before heading to Layton to a viewing and back to Mantua to Ben and Kailene Larsen’s wedding reception. While Winnie was in Layton she met with sister-in-law Belva Richman who gave her a family history book and genealogy record written by Dixie Botsford, a cousin of Clynn’s.
On Wednesday Winnie, Carolyn Carter and Marriah Richman traveled to Clearfield City Center for their art class.
Thursday Winnie went to plow only to find the right rear tire looked low. Friday the Bear River Valley co-op tire man Darron came out, “blew some air” into the tire and left. Winnie went later to check the tire, add some coolant and check the oil in the tractor and found the tire flat. Darron came on Saturday, put two boots on the hole and said, “That should do it.” Two and a half hours into some serious plowing, Winnie heard a loud “Blam! Hiss!” the tractor tilted to the left. The other rear tire was flat Winnie walked most of the way toward the barn. She called Starr Mitchell, who rescued her, taking her to the truck. Inside the truck Winnie found some corn, cherry tomatoes and a watermelon left by home teacher Steve Peterson.
Winnie and Clynn ate cherry tomatoes and cottage cheese for dinner.
On Saturday Starr Mitchell answered Winnie Richman’s call for help with her trusty Jeep fourwheel drive.
The Mitchells report enjoying eating from their garden. There is even enough to preserve. Starr takes the skins off tomatoes, quarters them and freezes them to add a fresh flavor to her soups and stews.
