Although this is really for next week’s news, we can’t contain our happy congratulations to Jim and Starr Mitchell on the birth of their first grandchild. Her name is Gabriella Elizabeth, and she weighed in a couple of weeks early at seven pounds one ounce on Sept. 10, in Ogden. Starr says all the nurses wanted to hold her because such was such a good baby: not wiggly or loud. Baby, mother and father are doing great. While Ashley was in the hospital, Charlie the dog stayed with Jim and Starr. When he was introduced to Gabriella, he wiggled all over. “We can tell he thinks she is great, too,” Starr says.
Cleo and Gary Petit left Promontory for Alder, Mont., for a few days fishing with friends from Brigham City. “We caught enough keepers,” Gary says, “so we could release lots of others.” The foursome stayed at a motel with little cabins for rooms. The temperature during the days got up to 80 degrees, but the mornings were cold.
The Petits are excited about their newest great grandchild. She brings the total to around 25. These family members live from Las Vegas to Southern Idaho.
Laura, Zane, Everly and Georgia Wheatley drove to Logan to an employee party on Saturday. The girls were very good and the food was great. There was Dutch oven cooked meats, lots of other foods, also ice cream and cotton candy for dessert. There were many games and inflated toys. The girls also enjoyed face painting. The party lasted most of the afternoon. Laura and Zane give a big thanks to Gossners’ for the fun.
On Labor Day, Winnie and Clynn Richman stayed home and watched the horse races on T.V. They were especially interested in the All American Futurity for two-year-old American quarter horses held at Rudioso Downs in New Mexico. After all the talk about the horse favored to win, another horse turned out to be the winner. It is the world’s richest horse race.
Lyle Richman came out to the Double S Bar to unload grain for Winnie and enjoy barbecued short ribs and good conservation with his parents on Tuesday.
On Wednesday after art, Winnie and Carolyn Carter stopped for lunch to celebrate Carolyn’s end of cancer treatments. The outlook is good for a cancer-free life from now on.
Thursday Winnie went to town for the regular things, but started late and got home late.
Sunday the TPII Ward choir sang and Winnie worked in the library. She got home to peace and quiet and easy chores.
