Another sad beginning to this column - our hearts and thoughts go out to Wes and Stephanie Cudd in the loss of their baby son, Wesley Reid Cudd. As in last week's column about Trey, rumors run wild in a small town, as Blanco is, which makes it hard for the family and all involved to grieve their loss. A kind word, and not a question, will go a long way.
There will be a benefit with BBQ, live music, and an auction held this Saturday from 12:00pm until 7:00pm at K&D Carriages (125 Moore Lane, Blanco) to help with the Cudds' medical bills and funeral expenses. The food will be good, but the fellowship will be even more rewarding. Go - it's for a good cause.
I saw Ronnie Cooley Saturday - Ada was getting her hair done.
Don't forget - the Lavender Festival is coming up, and I still need volunteers to man the ice/soda tent - we will be one of the few places that actually has shade, since it seems that so far Lavender Festival Weekend is the hottest weekend of the year, so make the most of it! Sign up at the Chamber (and make sure you tell them you want the ice and soda tent, not the beer/wine tent)
Any of my readers who enjoys a marvelous book, well-written, the kind of book that makes you read every word, "Major Pettigrew's Last Stand," by Helen Simonson. You can find it, and lots of others, at our Blanco Library!
