Orson Poulsen went black powder hunting for an elk last week at Strawberry Reservoir. He could only have enjoyed himself more if he had seen anything to shoot at. “There were lots of hoof prints of other animals, but none of elk,” he says.
While Orson was hunting, Jeanette went to Salt Lake city to visit her daughter Micki.
Laura Wheatley reports Everly’s fourth birthday. The family celebrated it at home. Laura, Everly and Georgia decorated with balloons and crepe paper. Laura baked a Barbie doll cake. When it was time to serve, the cake broke, but the ice cream was able to support the candles, so all was well. The next day Laura fixed the cake. Everly received a few presents and really enjoyed unwrapping them. The whole family listened to conference.
Boyd Udy spent last week helping gather cows for his friends. He spent most nights at home but he had to arise between 2:30-3:30 each morning to get to where he had to go. He used a “fresh” horse everyday.
“The work is hard, but I love it,” Boyd says. “I loved the fall colors and the cooler weather, but not the mosquitoes. They were terrible.” He says that after a good hard freeze they’ll be gone until next year.
Cleo Petit celebrated her birthday this week. She and Gary went to town, had some calls from family and friends, and just in general “had a good day.”
Clynn and Winnie Richman think their water pump problems are solved. They say thanks to Randy and Dalton Richman and Aaron and April Richman for all their help. It was wonderful to see them. Winnie made hamburgers for them as they headed for home.
Winnie says “Hi” to Dawn and Lucy Reeder and Royal and Elaine Norman, whom she met while shopping in Brigham City.
Winnie is almost finished with her little vignettes. Carolyn Carter will probably finish her 16×20 canvas next week. It is lovely!
Skyler Richman is continuing with his piano lessons. He is doing well. Winnie is grateful to Sharon Smith’s great example of how to teach.
“I can’t play the piano,” Winnie says, “but I can stress counting and making sure the right notes are played.”
Over the weekend Clynn and Winnie ate Winnie’s conference bread and listened to the 183rd Semi-Annual conferences of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The couple was thrilled to view the Priesthood session on TV for the first time. They usually have someone stopping in to chat, but this year was mostly quiet, with the exception of a few youthful hunters who stayed only a few minutes.
