A visit to Waukee, Iowa

Another trip to Iowa for Dick and Phyllis to attend a Bridle Shower for granddaughter Danielle.  Held in Waukee, Iowa, hosted by her Aunt Carrie Christensen.
The Bride, Danielle received two very special aprons.  
The red one made by Grandma Phyllis.  The one below was made by Great Aunt Barb Rayman using material which belonged to Dick's grandmother (Danielle's great-great grandmother). 
The picnic basket was given to Danielle which once belonged to her great-great Aunt Lois.  Danielle was blessed with numerous gifts from all and felt ALL GIFTS WERE SPECIAL.
 
 The Leisure World Sisters, Trudy Hauserman, Carolyn Richeson, Barb McGrean and Phyllis Connett met in Waukee, Iowa for the bridal shower.

Joys and Concerns

Jim and I just returned from a visit with Linda and Pastor Charles Belcher.  Linda, with a lot of help from God, prayers and medical staff is finally doing much better.  She was moved to a wonderful Rehabilitation Center and is working VERY HARD to regain the use of her muscles and learn to walk and care for herself again.  She looks so good and we enjoyed our visit with the two of them.
Please keep both of them in your prayers as she has a long way to go and Pastor Charles will have a full time job helping her reach her goals.  She has a super, I Can Do It, attitude which will help her make it back on her feet and active again.

Quilt class starts today.  I may come home with a piece done but then again I may not.  The teacher is from Australia and it is a joy just to listen to her.  This may turn out to be my talent for the show.

Cook Out

Saturday evening and time for another Leisure World Cookout!
Summer President Beth Staton was the Head Honcho for today's cookout.

Jim did double duty in the kitchen and on fire detail.

We got there at 5 and the crowd was already starting to gather.

Time to visit and relax is appreciated.

Shirley and guest Pauline had lots of prep work to do...salads etc.

We started out in clusters, but pretty well filled the tables by cooking time.

Once the word was out that the fires were ready, the cooks got to work.

Lloyd Walker said "Don't even think about it!

The starring attraction at every cookout was in attendance! And it was a good time to gather for friendly conversation and good food!
Loved eating an authentic Maine lobster roll in Kerrville today.  We need that food truck down here ow and then.

The Annex

Progress on the Activities Annex is difficult to see, as little had been happening on the outside since the siding, roofing, etc. was finished. Today Daniel and Freddy were struggling with the dry hard ground preparing for more sidewalk installation.

The sidewalk from the shuffleboard courts is in place.

Not much of interest along the back (South) side.

  
 It is starting to look as if it belonged.


And, to help us be alert the caution stripes have been refreshed on our speed bumps.
