The memorial service for a very special man, Richard Grimes, was perfect from the speakers to the music.

Navasota Mayor Bert Miller signed a Proclamation for Buddy Poppy Day this week. As President of Grimes County VFW Post 4006, I want to thank him for helping our Auxiliary. Thank you also to Connie Clements for the picture.

I was the second victim of the Little Man Water Challenge. Maybe I should not have shown him how to work the nozzle on the water hose. Yes, he sprayed me with a smile and said, “wet?”
