Personally from Perrin

Help take the Perrin count by being a census worker

(Continued)



While we were in South Texas, we went to Old Mexico. In these years we met lots of great friends, and I’m still in touch with several of them. A great experience, and loved the traveling and seeing new things but it was good to settle down. We adopted our only child, Derek Alan, now living with me since the heart valve implant in 2009. I have three grandchildren, Derek Lee, Sherree and R.D. and five great-grandchildren, Jo Ann, Heather, Rebecca Renfro and Nathan Hintz and Leland Renfro. I have now reached the age of 84 and am enjoying a good life. I’m a member of the Perrin Church of Christ. Just wanted to have it on paper for the kids to show their children someday. I have written the Perrin news for the Jacksboro and Mineral Wells newspaper for lots of years. I write whatever I can get collected then get it to Kay Mealio and she e-mails it to the papers.

I did remember that Jan. 18 was my granddad Smith’s birthday, then my 95-year-old aunt Beulah called to remind me that it was her father’s birthday.

I had misplaced my favorite cookbook, placed it up high on a shelf in my pantry. I can’t reach it and had seen it every day, but never really knew what it was. It was a gift to me from Bob and Winnie Coffee on the drilling crew in Winnette, Mont., in 1973. So I didn’t recognize the wrapper. Had some gray masking tape around it and a great surprise to come across. Spent most of the day going through it. It had little suggestions through it and I spent a lot of time writing some great suggestions down so I will put them in here. Maybe someone will enjoy them as much as I did.
