In a week that began with warm weather, now we are seeing drastic changes around us that should bring rain and nothing else, we hope.

When Mary Ellen Lincecum Johnston was buried Saturday morning after complications from a serious stroke, we realized what an asset this 85-year old woman, a life-time resident, had been to our church and community. Married to the late Milburn Johnston, the couple had a daughter who lived only a few days. Then their son David, now middle-aged, lived. He was Mary Ellen’s only close relative. Of course, many attending the funeral service from here and from out of town were cousins

People are wondering. Will we have more cold weather? If not, will summer be worse than last year’s days of sweat, agony, tears, high electrical bills?

Someone has said those dreadful words about time. Day-light Savings Time may occur next Saturday night. I am not sure. I may not change a clock.
What this time change does to ordinary people past 70 is not pretty.

Mary Ellen Johnston of Trinidad has been home several

We’ve been enjoying more rain; it is always welcome, the wet stuff in any form. As a child, we always had a barrel to catch rain in as it fell. It seems this was used for washing hair, maybe with a vinegar/water rinse or lemon with water. Never did we wash our hair nightly.

Barbara Wier has left Trinidad, now in Denver for tests on her thyroid and surgery on her throat. I called her the day she left and she answered

When it gets colder, the less I want to leave my nest. Some say we’ll see snow and sleet before spring.

A popular topic again is the weather. We awake and wonder what the outside will reveal. Rain is the favorite!

News has come that Roberta Staples died in early December in a nursing home. Once
