Roses Spring Eye Candy



My roses are so pretty right now! I think some bees mixed up my white roses and my yellow roses and my red roses so you see the beautiful results. This morning started out very cool and damp. It turned nice later and we were all enjoying the spring weather! Come see us!

Pretty Slick Chick

Husband took me and our friends the Henry's and their daughter Amber and her husband to lunch at Romano's Macaroni Grill Sunday! We had great service by Pam and my Parmesan Crusted Chicken Salad was wonderful! Look at this wonderful looking dish. I like the place for a lot of reasons! Pam kept us supplied with bread and beverages and she was very attentive! We came out so full one of our tires was low! We filled it up and drove home and this morning it was all the way flat!

Three Wheel Drive



We had some excitement this afternoon! A 1967 Camaro lost its wheel on the road in front of our Laguna Shore Village RV Park! We went out to watch as RV'ers like to do! Our park is usually a very quiet place! The tow truck made short work of scooping the primer painted hot rod. I was concerned about my newly enlarged drive way. It wasn't damaged at all. After all of that excitement some of the campers gathered for adult beverages and counseling. We counsel a lot around here! This type of thing could be traumatizing you know! See you soon!

Cheryl's Restaurant great food





Our friends Lee and Mary Ann took us to a really fun restaurant! The decor was strange and varied. The food was very well prepared. The picture with the heart in it was located above the door to the kitchen. The fish picture was hanging on one of the many short walls in and around the tables. There was an area with wrap around books and things children might enjoy and there was a long table that a family group was obviously enjoying and a secluded area with lamps around that looked out of an East Indian hideaway. There was an outside dining area too. The stuffed man in the chair was a surprise just inside the front door. I had to quit taking pictures to go eat! I'm glad I did because the food was very good! Maybe I will see you there!

Afternoon at the Spa

I had a great time this afternoon! I went to The Beach House Day Spa here on North Padre Island. The address is 14641 So.Padre Island Drive Suite A, and the phone number is 361.244.8354. Miranda Wiggins greeted me with the same cheery smile you see above in the red shirt. I had never had a massage or a facial or a mud wrap but I liked it! At first I was frustrated with the items they had for me to cover up with. They were one size fits all and I am not that all. But once we sorted that out Miranda guided me along and made me feel like a princess. The massage was so relaxing I didn't want it to end! The facial opened up by sinuses and my face is still glowing! My skin is baby soft after the mud wrap! I thoroughly recommend these people if you are in or around Corpus Christi, Texas

Old Time Color Hibiscus

Isn't this a great color! It really seems old fashioned like a pressed flower in a diary! I love it. With all this sunshine we have made several trips to Turner's Gardenland at 6503 S.Padre Island Drive phone number 361.991.9002. They sent the guys home with this beauty and several more. Hibiscus are the official flower of the city of Corpus Christi, Texas. I am so glad they picked this flower. Hibiscus' plural is Hibiscuses! Now you learned two new things! See you in the funny papers!

Birdy Sunrise over the Laguna Madre

The sunrise over the Laguna Madre are so pretty! I have learned to include a focal point such as the birds you see here in my photos! It give the eye somewhere to go! I guess we need some small things to appreciate the huge things of Jehovah's creation. I was later this morning because the time changed! Had to kick into second gear earlier. It's all good! Please post comments so I know you looked.

Spring Projects!

The warmer weather has inspired us! Trefor has been planting and pruning! Justin has been painting the deck a lovely silver color. Laurence and Trefor and Justin replaced a lot of boards that were soft. Fifteen years of wear and rain took their toll. I am so happy to get the new paint on. I hated the splotchy look!

A Friends New Business

The weather here is great! We are planting and painting too! We got our windows tricked out! One of our new Customers at the RV Park has started his own business. His business is called "Most Wanted" and he does vinyl graphics. This could be anything from company names on sides of vehicles or windows or even team names or slogans! He made the hibiscus flower graphics at my request! I am so pleased! I had him do one in white and one is white over turquoise. I like the two tone much better! If you want your windows done call his cell Justin Luxton at 361-561-7890
