If April showers bring May flowers, we are seeing a lot of blossoms on the assorted trees, shrubs, and flower beds. We love the rain flowers that bloom in anticipation of the rain. The weatherman is wrong more than he is right, so we will watch the plants and see what happens.
We had a fantastic Lee County Fair in spite of the weather reports of heavy rains, and possible weather alerts. Senior Citizen day broke all kinds of records for seniors served and amount of money raised for our scholarship fund. We even had visitors from Taylor, Texas.
The bbq cookoff teams had great decorations and were cooking some mighty fine grub! Our first annual cornhole tournament turned out to be great fun. We are happy to announce that Chris Paul and Mason Becker came in 1st place in the tournament.
On Friday we had the pleasure meeting our new friend from Ireland, Julie Mullen. She was traveling from Tennessee to California by way of Giddings because she wanted to see a real RODEO! So, we gave her the grand tour and took her to see all the cool stuff at the fair and then she went over to the Rodeo Friday night. What a fun day for all of us!
We really liked the Swifty Swine Pig races and fell in love with the little piglet Princess! Now I want a baby pig.
CONGRATULATIONS to all the Seniors graduating from Giddings, Lexington, and Dime Box this week. We wish you all great success in your endeavors.
Good luck is when opportunity meets preparation, while bad luck is when lack of preparation meets reality. Eliyahu Goldratt
