Enjoying playoffs on TV was a loud surprise

Chances are by the time you read this weeks paper 2013 Christmas will be a thing of the past. And we wonder where the year went. I’ve heard some say they hope this next year is better and knowing their circumstances, I wish that for them.

I did something this past weekend I’ve never done in my life, and if you had told me that is what you were going to do I would have said “not me.” I spent my weekend evenings watching high school football playoffs—beginning with the Cameron game. Most of the teams I chose as wanting to be the winner didn’t happen but I really enjoyed them all.

And the main reason I could enjoy it allĀ­— there was a cameraman helping me know exactly who had the football and where I should be watching. If I’m at a game I can’t keep up with what I should be watching.

Someone one let me know next year when these playoffs come on TV. I really got into it at times. Wayne was in another room and every once in a while I would be cheering on my team and he would come see about me. Guess he was a little surprised at me as I was myself. Lois Wilkins, Beverly and Johnny Nigliazzo, Shelley Sheppard and sons, Cole, Clay and Case spent the weekend in LaPorte with Diana and Robert Choates and family and other family members for their family Christmas get-together. Forty-f ive family members attended.

Chris and Kel ly Cooper, Connelly and Cameron spent Sunday in Lake Conroe celebrating Christmas with Dan and Maxine Cooper and family members.

Wanda and Alfred Coats and family members honored their son-in-law James Rasco with a birthday lunch on Sunday. James, best wishes for a great year in 2014.

It was good to see Calvin Johnson at church Sunday. He was in Gause visiting with relatives and friends. Calvin lost his wife and a sister this past year and as you can imagine it’s been a hard year for he and his family.

My brother Jimmy and Calvin were very good friends growing up and Calvin spent a lot of time in our home, so Calvin is like family.
