Yvonne Weir flew up to Rapid City, South Dakota on October 4th. Her sister-in-law, Lynn, picked her up and they drove around 150 miles to the Hall Ranch in Meadow, where she stayed at her childhood home. While there she did some wallpapering, planted flowers, played Chicken Foot and Rummicub with family, and relaxed a lot! She got to visit with cousins from the area and one from Colorado. One day she met a high school friend in Spearfish and they enjoyed shopping and visiting. During her stay, her nephew and several others went on a dinosaur dig nearby and found lots of bones. She returned to Tira on October 19th.
Destri Weir was in Baltimore, Maryland over the weekend to host a wedding shower for a friend. Eben came and brought the baby, Nico, and his daughters, Mena & Emmie, to visit with Robert & Yvonne & family.
Yvonne and Wesley went to Princeton to watch Eli, Dacy’s son, play soccer on Sunday afternoon.
Wesley Weir turned 17 on October 24th. He was treated to strawberry cake at school, and then he and his parents, Robert and Yvonne, went to eat at Juan Pablo’s in Sulphur Springs that night. He was thrilled to have the staff sing to him and he enjoyed the strawberries and cream on the sopapilla. On the previous Friday, Robert & Yvonne took Wesley to a Kris Kristofferson concert for his birthday.
Chip and I were in Dallas on Saturday to visit Chip’s sister, Linda Ellen Vaughn. Chip did some handyman jobs for her while there.
