Be smart when you鈥檙e cleaning things up; Leesville Homecoming set
In the years before television we would not have seen such things. As it is probably half the world has been graced with the picture of a woman falling out of sight while innocently walking along a sidewalk. Then the Good Samaritan falls down the same eighteen foot hole. Never would have happened in my Daddy’s day and time. Man if you would have left something like that uncovered and without about three crooked poles sticking out of it, you would have gotten yourself cussed, fussed, lectured, and then some. You just didn’t do something that stupid. The point of this is that spring has sprung and we are out there burning brush and cleaning up weeds and grass. Be careful. One person has already whacked their legs off with a weed whacker and is no longer with us on earth. Have fun, but think before you leap. Fires burn. Lakes and rivers drown. Drinking, Texting and Driving don’t mix.
April has five Sundays which means that breakfast is served over at the Belmont United Methodist Church at around 8:15 AM on April 29th. This is also the time when the congregation gets to choose the hymns that they want to sing.
Don’t forget that Homecoming is over in Leesville on Sunday, May 6th. This is an annual celebration. This is where everyone brings enough food for their own family and spreads it out on the big table to share with everyone. Usually paper goods are provided. That way we all get to taste new dishes and get exciting new recipes. Bring your cameras and pictures and talk away.
Mother’s Day is coming up soon. Honor your mother and stay alive for her. Some mothers have been cherishing you for a long time. Some are very new mothers and some are substitute mothers for others whose mothers aren’t around for one reason or another. It is a matter of the heart, this mothering business. I can bet that there is a little something extra going on for Mothers at both the Belmont and Monthalia United Methodist Church on her special day.
The Soefje Reunion is this year the first Sunday in June in New Braunfels, TX. You should be receiving a notice in the mail. Put your thinking cap on and remember all the new additions to your family.

You people are going to have to do better with this praying. This foot problem is going from bad to worse. X-rays tell the doctor that the circulation is about nil so that problem has to be corrected ASAP. I have faith from somewhere that I will not have to have more of this foot amputated. I don’t know where I get that faith from but I have it. I have to admit it is a little wavy at times.
Well it was a boomin’ time in Belmont last weekend. Cars were lining the parking lot at the Belmont Social Club on Friday night and Saturday night. On Saturday night there was a special big birthday party for Mike who made it to fifty. It was a spectacular bunch of people. They had a real treat for all of us as he took command of Clark Grein’s guitar and the Two Way Street band. I will have to say that this is about the only band that comes to the BSC that could have performed this feat. I don’t think that they or any of us knew what to make of this new arrangement. It was an interesting sight to hear and see. I guess that is Wyatt Arp and Deep Waters will be playing next Saturday night.
It was good to see George and Beverly White and several more members of their family enjoying some good food and music. We used to see them at Kingsbury Café and then we all changed eating places. I guess we need to go back and see what is happening over on the other side of oil field.
I have to wish Sandy Huber a belated Happy Birthday. Doris Hewell also has a birthday this week. We wish you many more delightful birthdays.
Mr. Samson did finally show his face. It was just like he fell from the sky. I don’t know which way he appeared from or where he had been. He didn’t enlighten me either. He sure was a hungry and happy cat. He purred a minute and went to the food bowl a minute and then this satisfied cat parked himself on the bed and slept for a long time.
