The house is painfully quiet as the days turn into weeks and we seek to adjust to the loss of our faithful little buddy, Berkley.  Each morning I plan for it to be better and then I hear the distant bark of a Schnauzer and wonder if he has returned.  (I know better but it is all part of the grief!) I thought I had picked up all his things but I still find them; a toy I needed to mend, his travel dish for water and his toenail clippers.  Each causes tears to flow and I welcome the healing they bring.

“It found us!” the girls giggled. ”We were driving by, saw the ‘For Sale’ sign, and thought, this might be a good idea.  It just came out of nowhere.”
If you drive by the corner of Hwy 87 and Tennessee, you will see that The Hula Hut is getting a face-lift.  It is currently being painted a bright turquoise blue.  When it is completed, it will have big, colorful polka dots all over it.  Why the change?   The Hula Hut was owned and operated be Mary Lou and Curtis Ritchey for 14 years.  When Casey Cover, age 19 and sister, Jennifer, age 21 noticed the ‘For Sale” sign; they knew right away that this could be a great opportunity for them.  The girls have recently purchased The Hula Hut, and are working hard to make to make their grand opening date of May 1, 2012.  The Cover sisters may be the youngest business owners in Dalhart.
