Town Talk II

We attended the Bovina Chamber of Commerce banquet last Thursday. It was a very enjoyable evening. The XIT Recreation Center was beautifully decorated with a western theme. The ribeye steak meal was served at the tables by Bovina students. Enjoyed visiting with Mike Beauchamp and Bob Sparks and listening to their stories of growing up in Bovina. Sparks talked about visits to Bovina by the Gatlin brothers in the early 70s. The Gatlins were related to the Carson family.

The Bovina cooking crew cooks the steaks then wraps each one in foil to keep the juice in. That is the way they have always done it. Larry Mitchell warned everybody to be careful unwrapping the steaks to avoid spilling the juice in your lap. I had that experience back in about 1996 at a Bovina sports banquet. Didn't know to be careful and got a lap full of steak juice on my khakis. Some things never change. Thanks to the Bovina folks for a nice evening. (more...)
