Breakfast at Laguna Shore Village Wreck Room!

Nancy and Don working hard on their breakfast entres! Laurence watched Viki make French Toast. Russ and Sharon were a Pancake team!

Laura was cooking up a batch of meat! There was so much food! After Saturday's Karaoke Party it's a wonder so many showed up! And I'm sure Monday's Poker Walk will be a big help in downing the calories piled on!

Jewelry Making!

I am learning to make jewelry! I enjoy new challenges and being creative! My bracelet has a nautical theme with five silver plated embellishments! I like the way it came out! My wrists are larger than average so I usually can't find bracelets to fit well! The other bracelets were created by Viki Haberman and Laura Rasmussen! They are better than me for now!

Poker Walk

At the far left is a pretty little rosebud in the flower bed by the office! The big bush with the yellow blooms is a Hawaian Hibiscus!

We had a poker walk around the park this morning! Guess who was the big winner this morning?

We are having walks three days a week! This morning a Norther came through and it was very cool! Almost 63 degrees!
The Winter Texans weren't fussing at all!

Mom and Dad are on the road again! their friends the Heaths are leading the way! If you see these two rigs on the highway give them wide berth. If you see them at the coffee shops tell them you saw them here first!

Today Tropical Storm Ida pushed more high tide onto Laguna Shores Road. This shows how the water is over Lola Johnson road because it is lower than Laguna Shores Road! Mom and Dad have to go through the ginky weeds behind their house to get over to another road! To drive through water like the woman in this picture is will bring an early death to your automobile. To keep your powder dry today will be a result of conscious planning. See ya'll later!

Big Time in San Antonio

I went to San Antonio, Texas for a second Special Assembly Day! I really enjoyed the trip and the folks I went with! We learned a lot and afterwards went to eat at Carabbas! That is a first class restaurant in San Antonio. Try it!

Laurence and Steve went fishing Thursday and even though they only caught two they were happy they went. I think it has something to do with escaping the chores around the RV Park! It could be that they wanted to please the two fat black cats that are circling Laurence's feet while he cleaned the fish!

Saturday we went to Robert Peterson's memorial service. Very nicely done by Preston Nichols. Today we got a lot of rain! We still need more. Red and Annie, Mom and Dad, surprised Laurence and me with a cake and card for our 36th wedding anniversary and we all sat around and enjoyed a piece of that! Never saw it coming! Viki and Steve were accomplises I'm sure. Scoobie Doo the dog just watched obediently!

South Texas Botanical Gardens Improved

This afternoon I went to the South Texas Botanical Gardens and Nature Center
I really enjoyed the Orchid building again and took lots of pics. They recently built and populated a butterfly garden!

Outside was this beautiful Bird of Paradise Plant in bloom! You really need to visit this place. The five dollar entrance fee was a good value for all the work they've put into these gardens!

We went to the car races Sunday night at South Texas Speedway at 6701 Old Brownsville Road. It was a lot of fun! The bleacher were situated so that the sun was setting to our left and the moon was rising on our right! What a tranquil contrast to the loud cars !

The cars were coming out of a turn right in front of us! Slipping ever closer to the cement barrier between the track and us! It was evident that a sponsor dealing in sheet metal repairs or graphics or welding would be sought after by those guys! They were swapping paint and waving at each other a lot! We had a lot of excitement from the collisions! Thankfully no apparent injuries! The infield crew were pros at keeping debris off the track. Another late night so I'm definitely gonna try to catch up on my z's tonight!

Take me out to the BALL Game

Went to the Corpus Christi Hooks Ball Game Saturday Night! They play at Whataburger Field here in Corpus Christi when they are in town! This night aMariachi band played several times!
What a beautiful night it was too! The clouds were multicolored from the sunset and the temps weren't too sultry! If you look at the lower left sign board you will see a number 90 signifying the pitch speed! Pretty fast!
They had a picture taking op out front with a hole for a face but no one in our group would help so I just cropped this shot for memories! We really enjoyed the game more because Corpus Christi won 3 to 1 over the San Antonio Mission! Wooooo Hooooo!!!

More Pink Shorebirds

I really enjoy cruising Laguna Shores Road here in Corpus Christi and looking at all the various types of shore birds. I needed a lift Saturday morning. My mom's dog got attacked the night before by javelina in the brush by their home. Spokes died that night and we really miss her. She sure did love chasing critters.
