Make lime to stop by and become a friend. or some reason I keep commenting on the weather. Folks, after the last couple of years of reporting the lack of raffl, I welcome every drop of wa- ter that falls. This last front brought 2-1/2 to 3 inches to the community, filling all farm ponds to the brim and overflowing. Also several low water crossings were closed or should have been. No warning signs were placed on the Plum Creek Road and the creek was over the cross- ing and too high to cross. So the next time it rains, please be aware as you come around the curves of South Plum Creek Rd. The first annum Congre- gational meeting of St. John Lutheran Church was well attended. After a hearty car- ry in "pot luck" lunch, • Presi- dent George Lyons called the meeting to order. As this was the first meeting of the newly organized Lutheran Church, various committees gave reports of what had' been done and needed to be accomplished. It was an- nounced that the Men's Fel- lowship were planning their bar-b-que sometime in May. The Women's Guild will have their Harvest Festival on the first Sat. in October. Susan ]anicki will head the usher list. Our thanks to Cindy Al- exander for a job well done. Cindy resigned after several years of assisting ushers.

Ruby was a faithful reader of this column. She leaves a devoted family and many, many friertds who. will miss her. Sympathy is extended to her family and all who knew her. Funeral services were held Thurs.; Jan. 14 at McCurdy Funeral home in Lockhart. Seems like some kind of virus or flu has .been ram- pant in many families' home. Hope all are better now. ' , ] , i Montage Continued from pg. 1C Happy January 4  Birth- day, James Polk! On your day, Ron and I saw bluebirds on the telephone wires behind the Church of Christ and recounted how you helped with the nestbox there ten years ago - that attracted nesting Eastern Bluebirds to our vicinity. We celebrated RonTom's January 2 "d birthday with a trip to Schlitterbahn's Hill Country Christmas. Over a million cascading and layered and strung and drip- ping lights. My face dripped, as the Mr filled with the "Hallelujah Chorus", the grand finale of the "The Greatest Story Ever Told" in Scripture and choreographed lights. We remained standing for a few moments afterwards, our air taken away. The toboggan ride gave us a nice run for our money. And, the hot tub was cool on the cold night. The lights reflecting in the God-made Comal River sure beat the lights on the man-made River Walk, in my opinion. Lovely night with a 63-year- old handsome young fellow. During the first weeks of January, a handful of blue jewels have bathed in our birdbaths. So beauti- ful. Keepclean feeders up all year lang. Boil one part sugar with four parts water. Cool. Hummzinger feeder! So easy to clean and guar- anteed for life. Every few years, I send some back with cracked plastic where the rod inserts. All year outside in Texas conditions is brutal on plastic! Roger Green clued me.in on the Humm- zinger years ago. (I sure miss Jackie.) In the next six weeks, Eastern Bluebirds will pair up for nesting season. e•• Heads up! Loving Moun- tain City will collect for PAWS in February. Pause to ponder what you might add to your grocery list or find at home. Watch for details. I opined poorly on LED lights in early December. Our white LEDs mixed with white standard looked aw- ful. But, the Garza's lovely colored light display was LED. At our cul-de-sac par- ty the week of Christmas, Mary said Roland chose the LEDs since 40 or more strings can be connected. I could sure use 40 or more connectable tidbits - f[om here, there, and . yonder - all over Mountain City. ptom5678@gmail.com or 512-268-5678. Thanks!
