Pat and Martha Ball enjoyed having their son, Billy, come to visit over the weekend. After church on Sunday, they stopped in at Lakey's Cafe to enjoy a meal and celebrate Billy's 50th birthday which was actually back on the 23rd.

Both Larry Boehm and Bev Galloway went to visit with physical therapist, Stacy Ertel in Cambridge on Monday. After therapy, Larry went on to Fruitland to visit with Dr. Davis and received thumbs up and full clearance on his recent shoulder surgery. The couple was then rodeo bound and attended all three nights of rodeo performances in Council at the Adams County Rodeo. The benches may have been hard, but the food was wonderful, including the ice cream for dessert and the events exciting to watch.

Wanna Belle Coriell had lens surgery on her eye this past week. Jess and Dallas drove her home afterwards, and Rhonda came to stay that night and took her back to the doctor the next day. Wanna Belle made me laugh when I asked if she was behaving and following the doctor's orders of resting by answering, "Comme ci, comme ca." (meaning: so-so, as we all know Wanna Belle isn't one to stay down very long!) Saturday before last, John and Delia Haberle enjoyed a visit from their friends, Glen and Sandy Coates.

Tony and Wanda Morgensen attended the services for Rosie Kilborn held on Monday in Council. Norm Kilborn is Tony's cousin, and they knew Rosie for most of their lives and will miss her greatly.

Bill and Ruth Reeder enjoyed traveling up to McCall on Sunday, along with Dave, Becca and Ethan Crosby and Lynn Johnson. The family went to watch Ethan kayak on the lake. Wednesday, they took a trip to Ontario and had lunch with Louie and Shirley Vendrell.

On Wednesday, Jim and Patty Shaw started their day in Fruitiand with an early morning doctor appointment for Patty. Patty then had blood work done at the Ontario hospital, and they enjoyed breakfast at Denny's. Then it was back to Weiser for another appointment and lunch at The Golden Horse. Thursday, they headed to Council to enjoy the beautiful exhibits at the Adams County Fair. Patty stopped at the Council pond for a bit of fishing before heading home, catching two catfish for dinner. They also enjoyed visiting with friends while in Council.

Dave and Cathy Veselka enjoyed having daughters Julie of Twin Falls and Carrie of Pocatello home for the weekend. Saturday, they loaded up Grandma Lanae and all headed to Boise for a special day with other family members, Harmon, Sarah, Helen, Jane and Neal. They treasured their special time together and enjoyed a nice family dinner while there.

Tom and Judy Green enjoyed attending the Adams County Rodeo on Friday evening. Darwin, Dezi and Alex joined them for their evening out. Saturday, Judy and friends, Vicky Cole of Council, Sue Piatt of Cambridge and daughter Cinamon Kinder of Caldwell, took a trip on The Thunder Mountain Line running from Horseshoe Bend to Banks and back again. Judy had won tickets for the day's excursion at a TOPS rally and was finally able to take the trip. Vicky drove Judy and Sue to Caldwell, where they joined with Cinamon, who then drove them first to eat at The Pita Pit before heading on to Horseshoe Bend. They arrived with enough time to check out the historic information and do a bit of tourist shopping and pick up some Indian artifacts and knick-knacks. The train ride was wonderful, and they all enjoyed the sights and ' beauty out of the train windows. Arriving in Banks, they enjoyed a delicious barbeque dinner and watching people sluice for gems. Judy arrived home shortly before turning into a pumpkin at midnight, filled with wonderful memories of a special day.

Julie Harvey enjoyed a visit from Matt, Melinda and Kayden who were up camping, and was delighted when Kayden decided to stay with Grandma this week.

Craig Boll spent most of his week working in Boise, providing coverage for the governor. Chal and Andrew headed to Reno for a friend's wedding. Hayden, Craig, Ardis and Granddad Vic enjoyed rock hounding over the weekend in Jordan Valley, seeing many antelope, deer and turkeys, along with lots and lots of rocks while there. Now they are looking forward to the all the kids being home for rodeo weekend in Cambridge.

Robin Stephens stayed in Hailey, ID on Tuesday while attending a school librarian training in Ketchum. She had a wonderful time learning and enjoying a great speaker who came from Maryland. Robin had to laugh and admit that her skills on "tweeting" and other new found media may still be a bit countrified; she did learn a lot. She drove home on Thursday and loved the scenic drive.

After leaving the grandkids last Monday, Roy and I spent two days in Las Vegas playing tourist and getting quite lost, thanks to my GPS navigator. It kept trying to send us to Colorado! But, we enjoyed our time being tourists and Roy finally got to visit the Gold and Silver Pawn shop!
