Jim and Starr Mitchell had a great Father’s Day. Son and daughter-in-law, Steven and Ashley Mitchell, Gabrielle and Charlie the dog came for a midday meal. The grill was readied for the first time this year. Everything was delicious. Steven and Ashley stayed until early evening.
Starr reports the new dog, Toby, is getting along really well with Rosie and “his” people. Also, the Mitchell’s garden is really doing well with the peas putting out more than enough for a meal.
Laura Wheatley and older girls, Everly and Georgia, made Father’s Day cards for Zane. They had a blast. Early Sunday the girls gave Zane a tie so he could wear it to church and to his parents’ home for a Father’s Day visit. Phone calls were made to Laura’s parents. “It was quite a day, what with it being Father’s Day and my first time back to church since Ruby’s coming to us,” Laura says.
The Wheatley’s garden is really starting to come up. They planted from seeds all that they have except the tomatoes. Those they purchased in big, ready-to-produce bushes. Laura says Everly helped Zane plant some of the seeds. She is really proud of herself.
Boyd and Kris Udy had a very nice Father’s Day. Those family members who didn’t visit called to wish Boyd a Happy Father’s Day. “That’s all I need,” Boyd says, “a call or a visit, an exchange of greetings, things like that.”
Presently Boyd is helping fix water troughs on the hill. Some are worn out and are being replaced, others being repaired.
Clynn Richman had a great Father’s Day. He enjoyed visits from Heather Lott and Lyle Richman and children. They stayed and talked for awhile.
On Monday the Richman’s tractor got one more day toward going back to work. “Thank you, Tyson,” Clynn says to the mechanic who came to the ranch.
All week and Sunday evening Clynn and Winnie were glued to their television screen watching the NBA Finals.
Wednesday was the mid-birthday celebration for Brittney Richman and her brother Skyler. Winnie joined them for cake and ice cream and presents.
On Sunday cake and ice cream were served at the ranch to celebrate Reagan Richman’s birthday. She is now in the Young Women Organization in her ward.
The Thatcher/Penrose II Ward choir sang “This is the Christ” for ward conference on Sunday. The choir members, under the able direction of Carol Larsen, accompanied by Debbie Hudman on the piano, performed the song beautifully.
