Nellie and Elmer Luckenbach of Fredericksburg visited T.D. and Leona Smylie of Blanco on Thursday, January 10. They celebrated Nellie’s 85th birthday with a special dinner. Nellie is Leona’s cousin.
Phillip and Cydney Schwartzlose of Blanco (Dr. Phillip is one of the vets working with Dr. Behrends) have a new baby boy, Logan Ray, which made their son, Noah, a big brother. Logan was born 01/04/08 at 1408 and weighed 7 pounds 7.7 ounces. Dr. Behrends may have to expand his practice a couple more times when the boys get older :)
Leighton Greg Johnson made his appearance on 12/12/07, making a big brother of Conner. Leighton weighed 6 pounds 15 ounces and was 20-1/2 inches long. The proud parents are Shane and Mysti Johnson of Blanco.
I am anxious for Mysti to come back to work at High Maintenance Salon - my roots are showing!!!
If you haven’t tried Lucy’s for Mexican food, you are missing a real treat. It is south on 281 just before you get to Yett Park on the same side of the road. It is delicious and well worth the hunt!
Don’t forget - Friday at 1:00 at the library is the kick-off of the 150th anniversary of the establishment of Blanco County. We will be celebrating, along with Johnson City, all year long.
I saw Ronnie Cooley and caught a glimpse of Ada the other day. They were doing fine.
It isn’t too soon to be thinking of attending Texas Author’s Day at Gem of the Hills on March 8th. We will have Jill Nokes, Marci Henna, Candace DuCoin, and Suzanne Morris.
There is a dinner/dance/silent auction/raffle at Gem of the Hills on February 16 as a fundraiser for the new aquatic center. Come out and enjoy! I am sure that a good time will be had by all!!!

A delicious Dorothy Troppy pineapple cake with ice cream and punch.

A big thank you is extended to Edna and Larry Gerhard for their gift of a beautiful crystal punch bowl and cups to Live Oak.
