Here it is Janurary 7th, 2016.
Along with everyone else, I am asking where did 2015 go?
This newsletter has excerps from the June 1998. Mike and Reeda sent in an article and since it is rare to get anything from them, I am putting it in first.
Mike and Reeda: "Finally finished the pontoon boat. It only took little over a year, which may sound like a long time, but isn't compared to Reeda's horse trailer, that is almost finished now for almost six years. We were going to name the pontoon boat after Reeda but it didn't turn out very good so I just brushed WAYNE across the back. We got it to the lake on memorial day. Summer and Rusty called it the 'Minnow' ( and I had it named Wayne) because at 9 mile mph everywhere we went was a three hour tour. Besides people, we had three dogs and a parrot on it. Scarlet has her own perch and can now say oowee, hello, can sound like a police car does a crow very loud, and calls the horses. She is supposed to live for fifty years with the intelligence of a five year old and to think we got rid of the kids last year." Update on Scarlet this was 1998 and they still have her in2016. Her vocabulary has grown a bunch.
What you see is what ye get:
Terri is here, don't that say enough, no time for news just work. Terri doesn't work as hard as everyone else. She takes time to play. She was on THE PRICE IS RIGHT. It viwed on June 9th. When she appeard on screen, it was going so fast you had to watch it twice to see her. I thought for sure she would be a contestant..Don't know how they missed her...personal note from her aunt Esther..They have no idea what they missed!!!

Get use to people saying
"You ain't from around here, are you?"
Tornadoes and Southerners going through a divorce have a lot in common. In either case, you know someone is going to lose a trailer.
.As you are cursing the person driving 15mph in a 55mph zone, directly in the middle of the road, remember many folks learned to drive on a model of vehicle known as John Deere, and this is the proper speed and lane position or the vehicle.
From Anne Heitman news.. In 1998 newsletter
September 7th Darvin and I are going to Israel again. We are very excited about this trip. We'll be going with our pastor and his wife this time. It is their first time to go. It should be very exciting for them.
News Velma sent in.
We spent Friday with Barbara at Ft Worth, then spent some time with Ricky. We missed two turns, but didn't get lost.
One of my grand dogs died. Leann's Sam died last Sunday and to her it was real sad. Bill and Barbara were with her when he died in the hospital.
Tammi ( Carol's daughter) and her two little sick boy's, heart trouble, are ailing this weather is hard on their breathing. Barbara's daughter-in-law, Robin has had back surgery, doing fairly well.
Joke: A neighbor man was making his whisky and fell in the vat. Two men tried to get him out, but he fought them and he drowned. They cremated him and he burned for three days.
Esther sent this in from visiting Coy...I went to visit Coy yesterday afternoon, and she took me down the road to gamling, she was playing Bingo and I played several games with her, she did Bingo and I didn't, and I believe she had just left the pool room when I got there where there had been a big game in progress..all I heard about it was "that Coy sure knows when to hold'em and when to fold'em..Leland said the next time I went to see her that he wanted to go too. (all this going on in the nursing home)
