“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.” The weather played havoc with residents’ Christmas decorations in yards during Sunday night’s rain, but we’ll rebuild.
In our situation, once we had the funds to decorate and not spend on young children, we were too old to get the job done. My tree becomes smaller each year. I don’t like packing items up afterward by myself regardless of promises of help.

Malakoff and Trinidad have lost a dear lady, Betty Jean Williams Matthews Inman, 84, who was in CCNursing and

Thanksgiving has come and gone, Black Friday went off as expected, and we are into the Christmas Season of 2011. I don’t know where to start – cards, gifts, decor, cookie making, or baskets of surprises.

As I’m an adult with the syndrome that fights order and organization, I’ll most likely do a little each day.

The Trinidad Methodist Church wants to invite everyone

Counting blessings can be an eye-opener. Some of mine are making an appearance now, before Thursday arrives. A grandson, 12, will be out of his school for the week and has come on a Sunday night to visit Gramp and Grump and to try out my apnea machine for CPAP (and I thought this machine would scare them). Some have asked to play with the breath reliever before.

When we relocated from West Texas (Big Spring, Coahoma) closer to our East Texas roots, excitement abounded about the filling of the new lake, Cedar Creek. It was the summer of 1971, and we bought a lake lot in Dixie Isle with 120 feet on the water but, of course, the water was one-half mile from our property. Talk of water sheds, the topography of the land, the nearness of Cedar Creek and the Trinity River had all been thought

Our area was filled with outside sales over the weekend. I counted at least four. Two were on the highway, one, at least in a church, another up Highway 274. I hope all were profitable.

We’re positive rain will fall any day and let some fall plants grow. I read once a country

How strange to have the house as cool or cooler than outside. That’s our weather news this morning.

Allergies, infections, cataracts and more are sending friends and neighbors to the doctor. Some need necessary surgery but have to clear up infections first.

Mary Reed on Lone Star Road will be moving to a smaller living space soon, still close enough

How happy I am about the weather and the rain, but here’s hoping more rain finds us. We’ve lost one pine tree, a beauty, and a magnolia tree in the back. Of course, the front array of long-planted bushes and greenery are now a pitiful brown. When we lived near Big Spring in the sixties, one city dweller with a sloping yard from his house to the street painted his “yard” grass green. He was almost famous, or his yard was.

Here it is almost November. Birthdays begin in our family

If you were not at TISD Homecoming, you missed loads of fun. People seemed happy everywhere I went. Out of 12 events I can count for the long weekend, I had to miss two to cook and nap. The rest I attended and saw people I’m glad to know. The best part about homecoming here has to do with our smallness in size as a community. We usually know the majority of people or can ask “Are you an ex? married to one?” or something else without embarrassment. Friendliness seems the key
