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!!!
