Joyce Dodd reported receiving some cash and food donations for the Tira Food Pantry. Tami Joslin was able to purchase several canned meats with the contributions to add to the items on hand. We want to express our appreciation to everyone who has donated to the cause.
Dustin, Natalie, and Everly Weir spent Saturday night with Robert, Yvonne, Dakota, and Wesley Weir. Yvonne adds, “Sarah and Lucas visited Thursday and Friday.”
We enjoyed a visit from Yvonne last Tuesday evening.
Linda Ellen Vaughn came to spend the weekend with her mother, Grace Vaughn, while Chip and I had an anniversary get-away. Grace and Linda visited Crystal Vaughn Miller and her family on Saturday and they all enjoyed swimming in their pool. At 99, Grace was not sure she remembered how to swim, but she did and had a great time!
Chip and I went to Waco on Friday and picked up lunch from Ninfa’s Mexican Restaurant to share with our son, Delayne, at his home. That afternoon we drove to Port Aransas. On Saturday, we hiked on some birding trails and enjoyed seeing the wildlife, including an alligator, and then we went on a dolphin watching tour, with a handful of others. We had a delicious seafood lunch on the deck at Fins Grill overlooking the water. We had the rest of our meals in our room or in our van. We spent a few hours that afternoon at the beach, driving along the sandy road and finding a spot where we could be about 100 feet from other beach-goers, and then swimming and watching the sea birds dive for fish. On Sunday we drove along the Texas Gulf Coast and then headed home, after taking the Galveston-Port Bolivar Ferry across the bay.
