Appliance parts

Today I decided to stop putting it off and order a new lint screen for one of the laundry room dryers. I called Sears and gave them the part number from my Kenmore parts list that came with the dryer. Sears wanted $31.99 for the screen plus $10.99 freight. I also called Appliance Parts Depot and they wanted $39.49 and I forgot to ask what freight would be. Then finally I called Appliance Parts Pros at 1-877-477-7278 and their price was $25.63 plus 4.95 economy freight. That was quite a savings. I got this company's name from a Google search and I am so glad I did! we all know price is not the only consideration but if the part is right I will feel pretty smart! It's hot and dry here in South Texas but I'm still glad to be alive and well at Laguna Shore Village RV Park!

Lunch at Jasons Deli

On we go to lunch with Pat and Judy after worshipping Jehovah. Met up with Chandra's son Holland and his wife Sherry. Took a picture don't know when he will be back from Idaho!

Chandra's memory

The memorial service for Chandra was well attended and gave us a chance to see many friends and family that had spread out all around the country. Chandra's son Holland and Husband Robert were there along with her parents and sisters, and well supported. I took some pics and got and gave lots of hugs. At these times we think about what name we are leaving. Brother Henry gave a very kind and upbuilding discourse. These occasions take their toll on all of us. Soon we will only look back on these times. Armageddon will be here soon.

Today I blog in sorrow. For myself and my remaining friends which includes her family. My friend Chandra Dawn Martin Peterson will be memorialized this day. She died at only 50 years old last week. Her fifty years had a lot of joy and a lot of sorrow. She was one of the best wedding and event planners but she wasn't well very often. She had an infectious laugh and a kind heart. Jehovah will keep her in his memory until the resurrection.

On the road again!

Mom and Dad are on the road again. They just through in some skivies and some groceries that won't keep and take off! This time to San Antonio. Daddy has another cancer spot on his nose to get taken care of! Dr. Lee is very skilled on this type of work. He did the last excavation. Daddy has been feeling alot better lately. Hubby is fixing up their boat so they hopefully will be out getting wet in the Laguna Madre soon. I say hopefully because Daddy has been so sick that boating would mark more improvement. I'll try to get a picture of the finished windshield project when it is done. It's still very hot and dry here in South Texas, but we make the best of it, by being happy there are no mosquitos. Bye for now. Keep your sunny side up!

Baseball and Bumble Bee

Our friend Don was singing take me out to the ball game when I snagged this iphone picture! We had a lot of fun at the CCHooks game at Whataburger Field! They are so good about having lots of variety going on when the players are changing sides or whatever they call it! I love to go there!

These Bumblebees were having a great time in the esperanza flowers in front of our Oso Bay Kingdom Hall this morning! I took a bunch of pictures to get one this good!

Flowers Galore

I had a nice time today!
I went to the South Texas Botanical Gardens and Nature Center.
The people there were very nice! The entry fee was $5.00 and I could see why. Here in Corpus Christi we are in a drought. To keep all those plants so gorgeous there were lots of people watering. I enjoyed my tour of the Larkin Memorial Orchid House. I have given you pictures of a few of the blooms! I really like orchids. I am so looking forward to the Butterly House is being added to the showcase. It will probably be a sensory delight too when it is populated! My knee was really throbbing so I left with regrets but I will go back! Thanks for visiting!

I went to the dentist yesterday and on the way home I noticed a sweet little bruise on my upper left lip! No wonder I was uncomfortable while they had all the equipment in my mouth! I'm all better today. You cant keep a big mouth down! I have too much to say and do! How do you like those cool shades! If you were on CSI you could figure out the reflections if it mattered! Gotta go, keep on smiling!

A Wonderful Day in Corpus Christi Texas

Today my amaryllis put out another beautiful bloom! I really enjoy looking at them. They are more beautiful than any human creation could ever be! We (Me and my friends Viki and Denice went over the John F. Kenedy causeway coming back from North Padre Island and the sunset was gorgeous! I had to pull over and it was tricky to get the shot without lots of cars in it! We live in a beautiful place. Most of us have beauty in our life if we stop to see and appreciate it! Thanks for looking at and reading my blog. I hope you are enjoying life!

Today I am so happy my Lilly is blooming again! I went out this morning to see such a regal bloom. I played with the light coming through the foliage and petals. It's going to be another warm day here in Corpus Christi Texas. I'm not sure about the proper name for this bloom but I call it a Lilly. My customers/friends from Sudbury in Canada left it here when they went home.
Tonight our friend from Victoria Texas will be visiting so it will be adult beverages on the veranda for the crew (I'm driving) and dinner out! Found out one fun camper is leaving and one new camper came in! People come and go in our life and the most we usually retain is a few stories and snapshots. From my friend Barney I have received much more than that and I hope to stay in touch by reading his blog, wherever he may wander!

Interior Decorator

Viki our campground hostess got into one of her moods. She wanted to paint the west wreckroom wall green! I said sure! It looks so bright and fun! Now just how many times do you see plastic lobsters and octopi on business walls! Laguna Shore Village RV Park is one of a kind. We enjoy the water front and the beach near by. Viki's hubby is very handy and can put together her visions of design! The two cats did not like the rearrangeing one little bit. They felt lost and had to seek out new hiding places now! Jetty the round long haired female found a new spot under the brochure rack! I'll keep you posted when she gets another crazy decorating mood! Thanks for visiting!

Lazy Summer Days

It's been very warm here in Corpus Christi, TX but we are used to it! Our bright yellow hibiscus with the red center mimic the sun today! They require daily watering but they richly reward us! Hibiscus is the officical flower of Corpus Christi! It's hard to get much done but we'll catch up in the fall when it's cooler. Even Doodles the Cat wouldn't get off my desk and go to work! We have a little Recreational Vehicle RV park here and it's a very pleasant way to make a living. The people are on vacation and all they want is a kind word a picknic table and a clean bath house. Easy enough! See you soon!

As you can see Wilomena the cactus likes the hot weather we are having in Corpus Christi, Texas. Howdy Ya'll, Mom, Dad, Laurence and I, all went to my sister Terrie’s daughter Sandra’s newly built home in Aransas Pass, Texas to celebrate my sisters 30 wedding anniversary. They boiled crabs and shrimp and sausage along with new potatoes, and corn. Their house is small but very well arranged. I like it!

I've been busy with my photography hobby. I took some great classes in June. I got the privilege of being asked to take pictures at a school for Jehovah's Witnesses that are pioneers. Finished that today and it was a great experience. Never had done that before. I was so tickled to be given that assignment.

Yesterday our friends and co-hosts Steve and Viki grilled hot dogs and burgers and made potato and pasta salad and we along with several of the other campers had chips and dip too, all enjoyed in the cool Wreck Room!

Today was Viki’s birthday. Steve bought her a very nice bracelet and a very sweet card too! She and I are the same age now! Steve and Laurence are keeping the flowers blooming and the courtyard pretty and green. They put a spigot at the fish cleaning table so we don't have to wrangle the garden hoses around so much. Now that Steve has become a fish-aholic too he wants to put a screened enclosure around the cleaning table for mosquito season. Shows his priorities don't you think! Talk to you soon!

Assignment of Privilege

I had a wonderful experience Wednesday the First of July. I was invited to take pictures of a group of friends that are devoting large amounts of time to preaching about God's Kingdom. Jehovah's Witnesses call them pioneers. It was heart warming to see the appreciation shown by them for the simple lunches and the in depth knowledge they were taking in. I hope they like their pictures as much as I have enjoyed taking them. I cropped some to 8 x 10 and 5x7. I use an Olympus E520 and RAW format.
