Promontory Pointers 7-3-12
Kaye Draper, in spite of her recent trials, is in good spirits and hanging in there. She has transferred to a nursing and rehab facility in the Salt Lake area. She sends her love to all her friends up this way. She is, of course, hoping to get back to her active life real soon.
Laura Wheatley reports an ideal way for Everly and Georgia to have fun and cool off, too. They went swimming at Crystal Hot Springs in Honevyille with Laura and her sister-in-law Maquel and son Mia. They all loved the water – the warm water the best. They swam until their teeth chattered. Even then the girls didn’t want to leave. They gave in gracefully when they were promised a return trip soon. Later in the week both Everly and Georgia got to play in the sprinklers at Grandma’s house.
Boyd Udy, on one of Crocker’s good colts, helped move the mares and foals into and out of the sale arena at the famous Fort Ranch Quarter Horse Colt Sale on Saturday. “I love horses,” Boyd says, “and any good thing to do with them.” The sale, which was the Fort’s 35th annual sale, is held on the west side of the Promontory mountains and south of the Golden Spike National Historic Site.
Gary Petit reports taking Cleo line dancing. He is also “enjoying the heated breezes.”
Jim and Starr Mitchell’s peas have finally quit producing peas to harvest. “We got more than we expected,” Starr says. Many of the peas are not in their freezer. The two of them hauled and stacked some more two string bales for their calves to eat this winter.
On Monday Clynn and Winnie Richman watched grandson Brantzen Richman play baseball at Honeyville ball park.
On Tuesday Dan Keetch and Rick Mitton came to the Double S Bar Ranch to purchase a nice yearling colt from Clynn and Winnie. “I wish we had more just like him,” Winnie says.
On Wednesday Winnie, Carolyn Carter, Zach and Skyler Richman enjoyed a day at art. They also enjoyed hamburgers on the way home.
Brantzen Richman played his final game of the season in Bear River City. He made an easy base hit which earned him many congratulations from his family.
