June 8:
Grasshoppers are eating my acre down to the dirt. I am not kidding. Can I ship anyone a couple of hundred. Heck, they are already in the trees. We put out bags and bags of chemicals. First we did the complete yard, then we started adding a bag (rotating brands and types) every third day, but they seem to grown on it. No dead ones anywhere. What plants, rose bushes etc. we do have are covered in seven dust, you can't even tell what they are. We were going to give up when we thought we would try one last thing so last night we (Chet, Tiff, Kevin and I) burnt the grass that outlines the gold fish pond to try to get them, about a 1/4 of my acre. (Tracy, our youngest daughter, didn't know we are doing this, last minute thing and she is in Ada, OK, she get in on the action tonight) We are planning on doing complete yard if we don't run out of diesel. We would be rich if we could sell the darn things.

October 3
I just found out that Callie Jane Pigg, (Alias: C.J. and Fred) was elected as the 2000 Maysville Sophmore Football Queen Candidate. Event is Friday, October 6, 2000, parade time 1pm.
The Maysville homecoming events were great as usual.
C.J. looked fantastic in the day and night events.. Growing up way to fast. She sure looked more like a Callie Jane than a Fred to me.
Robin did a great job as her day time chauffeur and David also did a great job as her night chauffeur.
Lindsey, rode, drove a four wheeler with the other high school cheerleaders during the parade.
Herb, Sherri, Laura and Sherri's parents (Bill & Betty Allen) were amoung the crowd at the parade. I believe Herb tied on more than his share of ballons for the event. The parade was a real big hit with Caleb and Zack. They didn't know what to do when the candy started hitting all around them. Torie and Kristi was somewhat amazed since they have never seen a Maysville parade only been in them. Carol had a blast getting to show off Zack. I am glad you are feeling better Carol. Jerry. Josh and Kaity enjoyed the parade, which got a A+ in their opinion. James would have enjoyed the parade if he could have found Kim, but she and Kaycee were at home so that was not possible. They decided not to come to the parade, Kim waited and came to the game instead. So much for surpising her James.
And of course I was there and enjoyed seeing the parade and family. The senior candidate won and was crowned the 2000 homecoming queen.
October 13-14-15
The 2000 Marchbanks ( Majoribanks) Family Gathering that was held in Fort Worth, TX October 13-14-15 was a great event. Chester and I was able to attend the Marchbanks family gathering with approximately 60 in attendance. We did enjoy meeting our Marchbanks family and getting to learn more about Marchbanks/Marjoribanks ancestors.
Following a reception on Friday evening, October 13, us and other attendees met on Saturday morning to take a bus trip to see the grave of Bolling Feltz Marchbanks, and to see the old Hodge plantation, owned by his father in law, and later in part by Bolling Feltz Marjoribanks. The original plantation was two square miles in size. We had lunch - of Texas barbeque - at the Ennis Country Club. As a part of the tour, we were met at the cemetery by Rob Jones, a local attorney who is a Hodge descendant and who was dressed as a major of Confederate Cavalry. When we arrived at the Hodge plantations, Chatsfield, which originally was two square miles in size, "Major" Jones had arranged to have a Confederate Artillery gun section fire a salute to us and those we represent. It was truly impressive. We also visited the plantation house at Chatsfield, and later were treated to tea and cookies at "Major" Jones' home, which he was renovating. The Southern hospitality was truly magnificent. That evening, Chester and I and most of the group went to a local Mexican restaurant, while some stayed behind to watch the Alabama - Ole Miss football game, won by my alma mater, the University of Alabama, 45-7. Needless to say, some of our group was happier than others about the game!
On Sunday, the business meeting was held which DH and I skipped it so we could head home.
