Page 2 - The News Community Friday, January 2, 20 l 5 -Community Calendar 'k % By Loretta Humble Special to The News Sorry I've been skip- ping out on my column lately. I haven't been do- ing a whole lot of inter- esting things or seeing other folks doing interest- ing things. I really appre- ciate Teri Caswell and Billy Bucher filling in for me. If you have some- thing you'd like totell the community, talk to me. We just might work some- thing out. It's been a while since I've had anything new to "write about my friend, John Walker. He's been visiting his son, Nick, in Chile for several weeks. I believe now he is in Washington State visiting his daughter, though maybe he is on his way back now. He's not much better at letter writing than I am, though I did get one letter from him a couple of weeks ago. I'm going let him help write this column by reprinting part of that letter. Sounds to me like he is have a grand old time. He), Loretta/ I'm OK? I'm online today, but usu- ally I'm not. The connec- tion is nonexistent in La- guna Verde, on the coast, L( i etta Around Town where I'm spending most of my time Here in Santiago, it's come-and- go, mainly because my room is some distance from the router l"ve re- cently worked#ut a rou- tine for spending e day at the "Prince of Wales Sports Club" here in Santiago, a supposedly English country club (al- though l've heard little English spoken there), founded in 1925. 1 ride Nick's bicycle to the club seven or eight miles on one of the very busy cy- cling paths, work in the reading room, have lunch in the canopied outside dining area, take a nap in one of the lounge chairs by the swimming pool, read or write some more, and cycle home before evening But even there, l haven't succeeded in getting online. Maybe next week/ What I have succeeded in doing is finishing aft- hal draft of the first part of the book I'm working SCHNBDER iS HIRING TRUCK DRIVERSI ~'~1 .... ."- _,..-=~ ~, on now. That means I'1l be read)' to package up a proposal when I get back to Dallas, and start send- ing it out to University presses? Nick is trying to talk me into an interesting project at the Laguna Verdeprop- erty - designing an extra cottage for guests (in- eluding me), incorporat- ing my collection of gothic paneling, glass. etc. Maybe sot. That gift from that nice lady is exciting! (He's talking about the wonder- ful gift Connie Clancey gave the Garden Club. John joined our Garden Club, by the way.) Okay, back to work. Today, I'll take everybody out for a dinner to a coun- try restaurant in the mountains nearby, to show my gratitude for the hospitality! I'll check in with you when I can! I know using John's let- ter for a column is kind of cheating, but 1 promise it is more interesting than anything else I have to tell you - yet. Actually, I will be telling you some more stuff about the garden club progress soon, and also some stuff that is go- ing to be going on here at the farm. And I really did have a nice Christmas. I expect you did too, or if you didn't, you probably don't particularly want to hear me brag about mine. But I will tell you about my favorite gift. My son, Doug, dug up a lot of fam- ily pictures taken when the kids were little, that I thought had been lost, and had them put On DVDs. It was the best gift he could have given me, and the rest of the family, too. You might want to con- sider doing this some time. It costs some money to get them on DVD, but once you have one copy, the rest of the copies don't cost much at all. So, if you have a b.ig family and lots of pictures to share, it turns out to be a wonder- ful deal. No shopping, and something everybody will love at a reasonable cost. One interesting thing that I did recently was make a very brief visit to Jefferson, Texas, where I had a cornbread sandwich at Kit's Cornbread Sand- wich and Pie Bar. It was really good, and Kit has got the cornbread down to where it doesn't crumble much at all. and still tastes like good cornbread. I didn't dare ask them to share their recipe, but ifI can figure it out, I might surprise everybody and enter it next year at the Cornbread Festival. Or better yet, maybe I can talk somebody else into Commercial roll ob site or, retail locations .. ... www.rescue,ou.scra,..comv,, capl 20907 1-20" Canton- 903-86S-IS10 ~ O ~ U r l O,tV 5 Proverb 11:1 The Lord detests dLhonest scales, but accurate weights fred favor with him.
