The First of May...outdoor screwing starts today.
And it's great weather for it, since it quit raining..I got the West News and there is lots of good news for our little town. Had a nice article about our Main Street meeting and I managed to get the back of my head in the picture. Plus I talked to Cindy and they are putting me on the Farmers Market committee, the Promotion committee and the Organization committee. I figure they think I'll fuck up on at least one of them. I also see that we got 6 inches of rain in the month of April..This month's rainfall is the largest amount since June of 2007 when we had 11.10 inches.
The Trojan band got Division One ratings in Concert and Sightreading. Plus ...we won the Sweepstakes, which is the first time since we have been competing in 10 years..Hot dang.
The West Library is having our annual book sale..Which means I will probably buy back all the books I donated. Least that's what Nancy the Librarian said.
Marlie Rogers celebrated her 1st birthday with a princess themed party. Parker Kadlacek turned two and had his party at the Ice Cream Shop in Denton and a construction themed party in Tours. Kearstyn turned 10 and some one turned 40. No names, just a kids picture.. Kelly Lenart and Justin Kaska were married on December 27th. The paper is 3 months behind in most birthday news and wedding news..Especially during the school year when there is so much sports going on.We had 6 people pass on..from 37(cancer) to 95.
KJZT society donated money to two West organizations. The West Library got $1,200 and the West Volunteer Ambulance Association got $1,2000 also. (Nancy is the middle blonde on the right...she hates having her picture taken.)We had the opening day ceremonies for baseball season last Saturday. When they start giving scores and giving run downs I'll find out exactly how many teams we have and how many kids are involved. Every kid from about the age of 4 to 18 plays...The Lady Trojans won District 7-AAA Crown ...We're so excited..They are 21-4 for the season after finishing the district at 9-1. This is the 11th straight year for West to qualify for the playoffs and they are scheduled to play Bridgeport in the Area playoff round next week. Bridgeport placed third in District 5-AAA and had a bye in the bi-district round. The Trojans won second in the district, and are heading to the 7-AAA baseball playoffs. The Trojans will play Farmersville, District 13-AAA champs. Like I said..Baseball is king in West.
West Food Mart has lean ground beef on sale for $1.69 an pound. I bought a couple of pounds and made me a hamburger. Now as good as Bold Springs Baptist Church makes them, but still, pretty good.
Someone was asking me about the price of land and there are 2 1-acre building sites near Tours(4 miles or so from West). Paved road frontage and $15,000 each. There is a country brick home on 14 acres, 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, very large country kitchen, garden room, enclosed porch, stock tank, carport, separate shop building for $290,000. Plus there is a country home on 8 acres. Small pecan orchard, 4 bedrooms, 2 baths brick home, covered patio overlooking back yard, landscaped, new appliances, for $199,900.
Community Grocery has t-bone steaks for $4.59 a pound. sigh*
My veggies and flowers are sprouting like crazy due to the rain. My okra is starting to poke it's head out of the dirt.
Sara O. was looking for me today to tell me that her sister is going to have a baby girl. She drove around town looking for my truck.. Not that many places I could be..She knew I was in West as I had left the door open. Talked to her Dad David O. tonight and he's pretty excited about being a grandpa to a little girl. Said he can't wait to take her out on the golf course. My granddaughter Jennifer is planning her May 2010 wedding. She's starting to freak out..so much pressure. Now I have to make up a list of my friends and various out of town relatives to invite to the wedding. Gee, it's a year away..at our age, half of us could be dead by then. Ok...that's all the news that's fit to be news from West, By Goddess, Texas. y'all come back and see us..y'hea?
