Laura Wheatley, her mother Susan Hendricks, and Laura’s younger sister Betty Jo Anderson, hopped into their car Saturday and drove up to Boise. The three-some went to attend Laura’s cousin’s Boise Idaho LDS Temple sealing. They were back in Utah by 9 p.m. that night. Everly and Georgia were tended half a day by their aunt and the other half day by Laura’s mother-in-law.
Laura reports having given up on her garden because it wasn’t doing good enough to mature in time for the fruit to be edible. “But I have big plans for next year,” she says.
Boyd Udy helped move cattle for the Utah Reined Cow Horse Association on Saturday at the Box Elder County Fairgrounds. He was able to borrow 60 calves from a friend for the Association’s year-end show. “We were real grateful for those calves,” Boyd says. “They were good ones.”
Charlie the dog spent another week at Promontory with his owner’s parents, Jim and Starr Mitchell. He and Rosie, having already gotten to know each other, got along much better this time. Rosie’s bouncy antics this time were less bothersome and his laid back attitude was beneficial to Rosie.
Starr was given some cucumbers, tomatoes and green peppers by the Mitchell’s friends, Deb and Ted Roundy. Starr made a batch of refrigerator pickles from some of the cucumbers.
Jim’s sister Kathy has a wonderful pickle recipe good for storing on the shelf. Starr is going to try it and put it in half-pint bottles just for Jim and her.
Cleo Petit says her and Gary’s garden is still producing a few cherry tomatoes. “We’re mostly cleaning up here and there and otherwise just hanging in,” she says.
Clynn and Winnie began watching the Little League World Series on Thursday. Many countries besides the U.S. were represented. The playoffs are held each year in Williamsport, Penn. All the coaches so far seem to be more interested in their players than winning.
The games will continue through Sunday, Aug. 25, until an international champion is crowned. Last year it was Japan.
Winnie would like to say “Hi” to Dr. and Mrs. Wynn Anderson who read this column. She greeted them in Kent’s in Brigham City during the week. She and they share a love of American saddle-bred horses.
