Your reporter has been on the go again. On Saturday morning Kim and Derek came and got me. We went to the home of Jerry Lee and Kim Watkins for a Christmas breakfast. I enjoyed spending time with Stephanie also, as she was spending time with the family, then about eleven o’clock Naomi came by then we loaded up and went to Mansfield to the home of Steven Watkins where we had our family Christmas meal and gift exchange. Those who attended were Steven and children, Arlen “Bud”, Peggy, Ronald, Ralissa, Lane, Amy June, Naomi and Stephanie Watkins, Peggy Greene and Billy who is Ralissa’s friend and your reporter. A good time was had by all with a lot of food for everyone. After we left Steven’s, I, Norma, went to the farm with Naomi and stayed all night and Sunday spent time with the girls.
