Well, the big election has come and gone and there are happy faces and not so happy faces. Congratulations to all the newly elected officials. Here's hoping we have a great year(s) ahead of us.
Sunday was Veteran's Day, and we wish all of them the very best. Our world is a better place because of all the men and women who have served their countries over the years.

All of our children and grandchildren will be here for Thanksgiving. We are celebrating Christmas that weekend as no one can come at Christmas time this year. They wanted to know if we would have all our lights up for them to see by the weekend. So, Dick, Kyle and I have been hard at it putting up the outside lights. The snow brought our project to a halt Sunday, but we hope for warmer weather again next weekend so we can finish the job.
Upcoming events this week are the Junior High and High School lock in Friday evening to Saturday morning at Plainview. There is a Junior High basketball game here Monday with Karval. High School basketball practice starts this week with their first game being November 30. School is out November 21 for Thanksgiving break. November 29 is picture retakes and winter sports pictures. December 1 is the Plainview Community Club craft show and dinner.
Have a great week and enjoy the snow!
