Project finished...

At Leisure World Community, you will often see ladies go in and out of the quilt/craft room in the ANNEX building.  They are working on their projects together or at times by themselves.  But, you usually don't hear about the residents who work in private at their home.  There is so much talent here in this park that we don't even see.  Remember back in February we did an article on Mary Beth Chandler.  She gave us a sneak peak of what the quilt would become that she was working on.  This quilt is now finished and will be presented to a grandchild this summer.  
In February this is what we got to witness.  So many stitches, here and there and so many long, long hours of love going into this quilt.  "It looks like Mary Beth has stitched the quilt to her feet"... 

AND NOW...  you get the first peek at the finished project.  I believe this is called a "wedding ring" quilt.
Beautiful - somebody is going to be happy and keep warm.  Great job Mary Beth.  Thanks for sharing. 

Mary Beth and Rob reside at #157 on Queen Palm on the beautiful lot just across from the office.  Mary Beth is full of talent, as many of you have witnessed one of her talents - her huge cream pies donated at the fundraisers here in the park...  Humm, I wonder what she'll surprise us with next.

New Bird Video

Hi all you nature lovers! I have just posted a new video that I have edited together called Mother Nature at Her Finest. It's not perfect becasue there is some shaking going on in some of the clips mainly due to the winds in South Texas that we all love. Most shots were in Texas and were taken during the Leisure World Birding Group outings over the past 5 years.

Leisure World Easter Dinner

Easter dinner at the Leisure World hall was organized by Scott and Rita Boyd, Jim and Beth Staton and Sheila Kramer.  Approximately 50  residents shared a great potluck together, with the ham furnished by management.  Thanks to all...



An "AFTER EASTER LUNCH" was held Tuesday at the hall.  Several came back to enjoy more "HAM" and some trimmings. 

Just another fun time getting together with your "neighbors"....

Mary Gainer B-Day

On April 15th, Stan made reservations at Arturo's in Weslaco, for Mary's birthday dinner.
Mary Gainer is no longer "39"....  She turned a few years older on April 15th.
 Approximately twenty Leisure World friends shared the celebration with Mary.

After dinner, Arturo's waiters gathered around Mary and sang Happy Birthday to her.  No she didn't get to keep the Sombrero...   Afterwards, back at the Leisure World ANNEX, Ruth Elliott and Dick and Phyllis Connett were ready with ice cream and cake for Mary, with the above friends plus more friends gathering to wish Mary a happy birthday.

We all wished Mary a great evening and hope she'll have many more happy birthdays to add to those years....

Cortino's

Thirty plus Leisure World Residents enjoyed a "dinner out" at Cortino's Italian Restaurant in Weslaco.  Just another way to get to know your "neighbor" and have a good time at Leisure World...


It took three separate grouping of tables to set everyone...Everyone had a great time...
