Boyd Udy was busy with several projects this week. He really enjoyed watching Kris in “The Savior of the World.” He says she did really well in her part as Elizabeth, a kinswoman of Mary.

Boyd has also done some cleaning up of leaves around the ranch and helping to move cattle from place to place.

On Monday Winnie Richman was able to order Clynn’s Christmas present. She returned home late and saw Jesse Petersen and grandson, Josh, coming down the Richman driveway with a horse trailer. She had sold a colt to Jesse. When that colt and another one were loaded and the second one couldn’t be separated from the purchased one, Jesse said he would buy the second one. Winnie said, “Done!” and both horses went to their new home. They are doing well.
Tuesday morning Winnie had an enjoyable time going with Marie Roche visiting teaching. Marie provided a Thanksgiving treat to each lady and Winnie. Tuesday evening Winnie enjoyed tending Everly and Georgia Wheatley while their parents attended a dress rehearsal of “The Savior of the World.” While there, Winnie picked up an idea for a Christmas present for great-grandson, Jayden Nelson.
Wednesday was art day. Carolyn Carter based in her newest canvas and Winnie signed and brought home her lastest canvas in her on-going project.
On Sunday Winnie worked in the library at church.

Jim and Starr Mitchell were in their truck just entering the freeway near Brigham City when the truck’s transmission went out. That means no ability to shift gears or go forward or in reverse. They called S&M Towing in Brigham and were towed to Fronk’s in Tremonton for repairs. Jim and Starr took another vehicle to Ogden to deliver a frozen turkey (one they raised) to Steven and Ashley Mitchell’s to thaw and cook for Thanksgiving.
