Sally Wall of Blanco went to visit her son, Bob, in Fulcher, TX, in his new house! Bob is a teacher and coach in Houston. Sally's mom, who lives in Katy, TX, was there as well. Sally says the new house is lovely.
Bob Daughdril of Blanco had a visit from his son, Benjy, who came up for a hunt weekend. With Benjy were his wife, his friend, Alan, Alan's wife, and Alan's dad. A good time was had by all (although I am not sure if the deer enjoyed it). Bob also went to Austin Saturday to see the Blue Man Group. He has seen them before and liked them enough to see them again!
Bob and Carolyn Boydston of Blanco had a visit from their son, daughter-in-law, and grandson. What a cutie, and what a proud grandma!
Don't forget - the Blanco Community Choir has 2 performances scheduled this weekend. You can read the whole article in another part of the paper, but the reason I mention it again is that I am in it! Come hear us sing and then, if you have any complaints about Potpourri, you can tell me.
I am excited too because our son, Rob, will be here for Christmas vacation on Friday. He is staying 3 weeks and having his tonsils out as a Christmas present! Lyle's parents, Mel and Ramona Yorgensen, are here for the holidays as well. They prefer our cold weather to the snow in Kansas!
A former Blanco-ite, Kevin Hall, who now lives in Kingsland, TX, came in 7th in a massive poker tournament in Purdy, TX. Wish he could share.

Saturday they went to Johnson City to El Charro for supper and to look at the Christmas lights and go through the LBJ Boyhood Home. Sunday, the Mikes met Debbie in New Braunfels to get the boys back home.
