Clynn and Winnie Richman spent Monday at home. On Tuesday, Clynn’s brother, DeLoy Richman, and cousin, Joyner Lofthouse, came out for a chat.
On Wednesday, the Richmans celebrated son Aaron’s birthday at Maddox Ranch House, with Dick and Carolyn Carter, Zach and Skyler Richman and Lyle, Reagen and Brantzen Richman.
Before dinner, Aaron came to the ranch to fix the big tractor and feed the cows and horses, with April’s help behind the wheel of the tractor. The couple counted 19 calves. Then they did chores and watered.
On Saturday, Greg and Heather Lott came to feed and Lyle, Reagen and Brantzen came out with a load of hay for the ranch.
Sunday the TP 2nd Ward choir sang during sacrament meeting. Aaron and April were feeding the cows when Winnie got home. Then they did the watering so Winnie would only have chores later.
Clynn gives a huge thank you to Clay Nicholas for riding the east side of his winter pasture to check on the cows and calves there. A few new calves were discovered.
