Living Well Page 7A - The MalakoffNews Friday, July 2, 2010 ................................................................................................................................................... ................... Trinidad Tales By Emily Lundy Special to The News Everyone is happily awaiting this Fourth of July. Even with limited fire- works. 1 think most of us will appreciate it like never before. Trinidad's Community Center. which is available lbr rent, holds marly family reunions. We don't know if one or two happened this past weekend, but both were well attended. One was for the Baker family. The thought did strike me to go in, be a long-lost cousin if asked, mumble otherwise, and get some re- ally good eating. Some call this building, moved from TP&l.'s property when they closed, as our Convention Center. Dot Meadow's dad has died and been cremated. A memorial service will be later announced, l.-te was Leonard Combs of the lake area. Eric Finley still has med- icalion to take before his thyroid ordeal is over. Barbara Thompson is doing well with her untreat- ed cancer. She has too much treatment with other cancers and maladies. Lorene Jackson is still under the care of hospice. pie she is terminal, but she rolls in her wheelchair and can talk to you, making you glad you came. The TISD is still in the processing plans for new teachers. Betty French Hayes fell Friday and thought at first she had broken an ankle. I don't have an update. She and hubby Barry live out of Austin in the Travis Lake Area. I tbund a new cousin in Mexia recently. She is com- ing up to go through my mother's saved pictures. When ! discovered this cousin was my same age (1 thought much younger), ! was really happy. On my husband's side, a nephew came through Trinidad to see our older son. He is Paul Lundy, 48, and works out in the Gulf, computer whiz and more. He said the disaster did not happen overnight but was a long time coming with short cuts and makeshiI deci- sions. I told him up here we had decided he was smart enough to fix everything if allowed to. BP also has drilling in Alaska on larger scale. Bethel Kelly is back to running around. Tamarlyn Shannon who Frances Grays3ti has good lost her Imsband Charles and bad clays. She tells peo- Shannon, an old time sweet- Remember this plant? Couples in the 1930s and 1940s enjoyed having their pictures made in front of this new TP&L electric plant. heart, for both's second marriage, was in town with a younger relative, a teen, Miranda. Tamarlyn and Charles belonged to differ- ent churches of different re- ligions, managed to make it to both services at sched- uled times and were loved by many people. Tamarlyn has now moved near Austin. Summer school is over. We hope it helped. Avon and Douglas Lane on this side of the lake have had health issues but are doing better. Douglas is the long-time superintendent of Mildred ISD but will retire this coming year. T.J. Rozell is having bet- ter days, and the aneurysm in his abdomen area is being reduced with stents. He and wile Sue live in Chandler. Louise Prnka hopefully is settled in Trinidad again, living in the Abbe House. I am reminded of Chief Seattle again, who spoke English fluently in 1900 as he said Americans did not respect the land, the water, and did not realize we could not own nature. He said one day we would lie and drink our own filth. He had a lot more to say about the care of this beautiful country. He probably never dreamed so much of it would be con- crete.
