The Clarendon Press, June 7, 1973, Page 2 Bif0cals + Can you imagine driving 17 hours to get homo Qd then finding that your parents were out of town? That's exact- ly what happened to Linda and Gary Childs. Gary came in from work on a Friday afternoon and asked Linda (nee Vanghan) ff she would like to drive to Clarendon. Llnda must have broken all speed records for packing, be-. cause the couple arrived here after lunch on Saturday. Much to their dismay, Lindats parents, Mr. and Mrs. Ken.. neth Vanghan, were in Austin. After a long distance phone call, Kenneth and Melha Ruth arrived home around II p.m. Gary is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Harold Childs of How- ardwick. It surely is nice to see Hockaday student, Laurie Smith, home for the summer. The MeXican Fiesta Saturday night at the train depot was terrific! Everyone really he.d loads of fun. And the food -- never have tamales tasted so goodl! Jane Gtlkey of Waxahachte came up last week to keep care of granddaughter Jemflfer. Daughter Meltnda Mc- Anear was with son Todd in Amarillo. Todd bad a blocked tear duct which required minor surgery. Please pass the chicken stock -- I have poached eggs up to my ears that would be Just perfect for Egg Drop Soup. No matter what I did I Just could not seem to make a per- fect poached egg! After getting the water to boil, I slipped the egg into the pot. The eggs Just didn't turn out right. In- stead, they looked like a hybird spluettt or a Picao sunburst. The remedy to the situation was simple--I bought a little utensil that the egg is broken into and is placed in the boiling water. There's a handle to pull the egg out of the water. Thank heaven for little utenstlsl STRANGE ANIMAL TALES Billy Jack and Helen Land were in Red River a couple of weekends ago. When they got back, they noticed that some coffee cans, antique bottles and practice goff balls were knoeknd off a shelf onto the floor. Later they found out there was a baby opossum in the pral The Chuck Dehyles had a mole in their yard. This little creature had almost destroyed their garden, irees and yard. One day Frances saw the animal burrowing underground. She stopped the thin by stabbiz it. Jan Roberts had nephew Chad spending the night with her Monday night. Chad's bed was at grandma Ruby's house.

TERRY DALE DRUM Sandi'a Kay Boldez became the bride of Terry Dale rum in a double ring ceremony Saturday afternoon inGroomChurch of Christ. Remember the old tune that went something like, "Take off your coat, throw it in the corner. Dance all night, dance a little longer," etc...? The words to that melody pretty well describes Saturday night' s"Mexican F iesta" The food, decorations and music were excenentl I don't know when tamales tasted so good. Not to mention the bean dip mchos and toaetadosl The Country Impressions were responsible for the enter- tainment. And, I'm telling you they really know their stuffl People that hadn't venturedout on a dance floor in years were stepping high. Not even the multi spUtlevel dance floor clattered the toe tappers. I think Janice Roberts out to be voted "auctioneer of the season." How she ever kept those bids straight and her Spanish too, I'll never know! Bobby Boston could've walked away with every wall hanging there, if he'd only raised the bid a $1.00 -- in'stead of 30 1!! Annton Riggs got a brief aerial view of the whole dancing areal I've never seen anyone quite so lad to come back down to ear,hi I wasn't quite sure until mid-afternoon Sunday, but even our ',corner cat topper" enjoyed himselfl All right Clarendon you've got just three weeks to recooper- ate nd prepare for July 4t!

Mike Graham, senior accounting student at Texas Tech, received word recently that he had qualified for the Dean's Honor Roll for the spring semester. Mike's major may be ccounting, but from the looks of the immaculate way the Graham yard is kept, I'd say his true calling is botanyl When Mike isnq in school at Lub- bock, he's managing a very envious flower garden at home plus a larger one at the family farm. The Chuck Deyhles had a house full for the "depot dance" Saturday evening. Daughter, Sandy, and husband, Jim, came in from Wichita Falls; son, Charlie, and his house guest, Donna Tarver of Wellington and daughter, Becky, all head- quarted at the homeplace this weekend.
