Thank you for holding free Thanksgiving feast

Editor, the Advocate:

Local rancher/businessman Charlie Faupel, of Reeves Ranch, did it again!

He opened his home/ranch clubhouse, serving his free Thanksgiving feast. Everything is homemade. Charlie starts the turkeys days before, with the dressing he always makes. Folks bring their best dishes to share!

An old-time band was playing, and Jesse was leading a gentle, old horse, giving rides to delighted kids! Jesse approached my 91-year-old Auntie to get her to climb aboard.

Auntie B. declined. That sneaky cowboy stole a kiss right on her cheek, leaving Auntie giggling like a shy school gal!

I just want to say, "Thanks, Charlie. You did it again!" In spite of your adamant, "This is the last year. I'm gittin' too old for all this" remark, we all hope and pray you will do it again and again! God bless you, you big-hearted, shy fellow. Victoria County is so very blessed to have citizens like you!
