Stockman and Thereabouts - May 13, 2013
By Pat Crawford
I hope all the mothers and mother figures had a great Mother's Day this week end. We went to Lufkin on Saturday and had our get-together. This was baby Carrington's first Mother's Day, and we really enjoyed being with Graycie and her, and of course Zack, Pam, and Chris. The babies are fun and entertaining, and changing by the day. I would never have thought that hearing those first little ABC's and 123's woud be so exciting; they are.
Christopher went to Houston to an Astros-Ranger game. He enjoyed it; he met us in Lufkin on Saturday.
I enjoyed spending time with Aunt Marie on Sunday; I made her some chicken and dumplings by her recipe that she gave me a long time ago. I think she enjoyed them. I like to visit the Lakeside Ladies; they enjoy having visitors.
Franks relatives and friends, begin thinking about the Franks' reunion on the second Saturday in June. I have been facebooking with our West Texas Cousins and reminding them. Cassie Carroway has new baby twins; Jerry and Glynnis Ramsey have a new baby granddaughter thanks to Amy and her husband. We have Carrington since last year, and Reese Ross hasn't met her Franks relatives.
The Crump reunion is the last Saturday in May also; correct me if I am wrong Linda Morgan.
Our cousin Lurlene Boyett has not been feeling well; she would appreciate your prayers for her and Byron.
Congratulations to Lynn Stanford for receiving his respiratory therapist certification. He graduated with honors. Lynn would also appreciate prayers for his mother.
We missed Charles yesterday; he needs to move back up here closer to us.
The Junior-Senior Prom will be held Saturday at Crown Colony Country Club in Lufkin; beautiful girls and handsome guys will be plentiful.
Activities are in full speed from now until June 7. Seniors enjoy these last days because as Ben Franklin said, "Lost Time Can Never Be Found Again."
