Regina Payton visited with her mother Martha Payton this past week. She arrived on Wednesday afternoon. Martha reports, “We decided to try our skill at power washing the house, screens, windows and lawn furniture, which was easier than expected. Brad Payton came on Thursday afternoon with a beautiful bouquet of red roses for Mother’s Day, so naturally we put him to work also. By the time evening arrived we decided to drive to Cooper to the Dairy Queen for a hamburger supper. Brad returned home on Friday evening after a very nice visit. Regina and I drove to Longview on Saturday to visit my sister and brother from Pittsburg. We let Luby’s cook our lunch on Saturday. We had a wonderful visit and, as always, the drive to east Texas is always nice. Everyone returned home safely.”
Dacy and Destri treated their mother, Yvonne Weir, to lunch at the Smoky Rose in Dallas on Friday, May 4th, and then they then attended a Cinco de Mayo festival at Nico’s (Destri’s son’s) day care. Yvonne comments, “It was fun, but Nico refused to wear the mustache or sombrero.” Yvonne spent the night with Destri and Eben Friday night.
Wesley Weir went bowling with My Heroes on Saturday and played Bright Star Baseball on Monday night. Yvonne adds, “It was a great night for baseball.”
