lune 12, 2003 People & Events Page 7 The Free Press e annual Buda High orever Reunion was held last Saturday on the campus of old Buda High School. The Manchaca Fire Hall Kitchen served up hundred plus plates of fried fish. The silent auction added $550 to fund next year's event. A fine time was had by all. Next year's reunion will be Saturday, June 5, at the same place, same time, along with the same. people and maybe even more. Judy (Thompson) Powell will again be in charge of the reunion aided by several class- mates. Pull out your Rebel flag and travel over to Driftwood for the 107th annual Camp Ben McCulloch Confederate Reunion, which starts Friday, June 20 and runs until Friday, June 27.

Happy Dad's Day to Ron Tom and all you fathers out there reading this column in or out of Mountain City. Some of the special summer dates for Mountain Cityians that you probably don't want to miss (after the windstorm and garage sales) will not be publicized in this column. You'll fred them in the letter from the City that prob- ably arrived in your mailbox on Wednesday. phoned with a bird feeding ques- tion) and saw two Black-crested Titmouse nestlings become fledg- lings as they flew from their nest- box. That's quite an amazing feat to witness. These little ones each hopped up to the nestbox hole and looked around tentatively before taking off on a maiden flight. Some avid birdwatchers have not seen the sight. It happens so sel- dom. Once they fledge, they do not return to the nestbox. Yes! There are folks who live Returning to Father's Day out of Mountain City who read " thoughts. Tami and Ronda this column. On Saturday morn- remember Ron stopping the-car ing I was looking out the window many a time to help a turtle cross while talking on the phone with a the road. Sunday night I was with reader from Leisurewoods who him when he turned around on Kohler's Krossing to assist a Texas Rat Snake. Now, that kind deed came from the influence of Craig & Connie McIntyre whose snake rescue service (no fee) is often mentioned in this column. ("262.2235, That's the number for Snakes Alive") Before coming under their influence, I had the notion "The only good snake is a dead snake." Snakes have a role in the balance of nature. This week my dad who lives in Deep East Texas saw what he said was "one of the most beauti- ful birds I've ever seen." From the description ("bright gold underside and a black upperside accented in white") I knew he had seen what we almost take for' granted in Mountain City -- a male Lesser Goldfinch. We are fortunate to have them year- round. What a delight to watch the goldfinch eating thistle seed while hanging upside down on special finch feeders. With the recent rains, those feeders need to be refreshed and cleaned often. Thistle seed cakes when it gets wet, and it gets moldy. When the old seed is tossed, the feeder can be disinfected with a weak bleach solution (10%). Tidbits are always needed for this column, come rain or shine.
