Big Bad Blog Bungle!!

Dear Leisure World Friends, Relatives and all the ships at sea or wherever you happen to be--

Disaster struck the blog this afternoon and I desperately need your help. Or more accurately I caused a disaster on the blog today and with your help I can correct it. As I explained at Tuesday's Park Association meeting, I inherited this administrator job from our dear friend, the late David Slater. It wasn't planned this way. It just happened.

After Dave died in August, there was no way for anyone to gain entry to the administrator's section of the blog. That was his domain, and for a while it seemed as though the blog would soon rest-in-peace also. At Dave's request I had been helping him, during his final days, reconstruct his own usernames and passwords. As such I was privy to his personal list, which unfortunately was quite messed up. By simply working things out and using the Trial and Error knowledge that we, as close friends, shared, I was able to reconstruct most of his internet addresses, including, at long last, an entry into the administrator section of the blog.

Since that time I have transferred the administrator's entry to my own name and have recently been assisting folks who wished to update their classified ads that David had previously placed on the blog. Today, I was attempting to enter two new ads on the blog, and while trying to match type face and color I inadvertently erased the entire Community Classified section. Not only was it gone. It cannot be retrieved! So here's where you can help. If you had a Classified ad on the blog, and you would like to have it continued, please jot it down on paper and bring it to me at our home at Lot # 221. Better yet, if you have computer access, please write your ad in a text form (even a simple email will be fine) and email it to me.

Things are back together now, after spending a whole afternoon figuring it out. I have placed two new ads along with one that I had recently received from Wally Bentt back into the Classified section. Now I'll be happy to re-insert your ads. I just need to have them again in writing.

Thanking you in advance.


P.S. Assuming you all wish to keep the blog going, we are in need of contributions. We'd like for you to post your own photos, thoughts and ideas for everyone to see. While there are many in the park who are able to log on as a contributor, there are many more who could if they wished. It is very easy to do so, and you will never, repeat NEVER, be in the situation I was in today wherein you would lose any portion of the blog other than perhaps your own. To become a contributor, send me an email with your request. You will receive the simple, easy to follow, instructions that will allow you to join ranks with all the other contributors. My email address is:

Surgury Went Well!

Wally had surgery for a Popliteal Aneurysm on his left leg on November 30 at 7:15am. Home from the hospital on December 2nd at 11am. The incision is on the back of the knee is 10 to 12 inches long. It is a pain to start walking but once moving it isn’t so bad. He is getting in a couple thousand steps plus on his Fitbit. He will have to see the surgeon again in 6 weeks after which he may give him a clean bill of health, but we wouldn’t be able to get US medical insurance for at least another 3 months. And so we won’t be seeing our Winter Texan friends over the 2017/18 winter. We have our #320 up for sale, so if you know someone who is looking, have them contact Robbie or Winona Hood at Lot 724 or call (956) 369-1882 or email We miss y’all down there and are thinking of you often. We have taken up floor curling with sticks which is somewhat like shuffleboard (NOT). Big difference is it is indoors and so we won’t be getting a sun tan any time soon.
