Park Eat Out Last Night

About 20 folks from Leisure World gathered at Jalisco's Restaurant last evening. Unfortunately Fran and I both forgot to bring a camera. Food was great, service excellent, company outstanding. Another very successful activity for those of us who inhabit Leisure World the year-round.
Notice the modification of how the activity calendar is displayed. You can still click on it to enlarge it for easier reading. It will appear ahead of blogged news items for now. Comments?

Mary Gainer's Birthday

Hey, when you get to be our age, you deserve more notoriety, so Leisure World, here is some more pictures of Mary's birthday.... We did have a great time.
Mary's birthday dinner started at Lin's in Weslaco.  Joannie tried some things that were different - "Baby Octopus" and she was still smiling afterwards....
Back to the park like Mary said, we had cupcakes, Ice cream  and some candy and even though our bellies were full from Lin's, we consumed it all.  (Mary had a little trouble blowing out the fake candle)... 
Our dear friend Frank Lawless played a few tunes for us, even Happy Birthday...
Mary enjoyed the cards and gift items she received.
Happy Birthday to Mary.
Now she is just as old as I am.  Ha Ha...

Happy Birthday Mary Gainer

Tuesday, April 15, fifteen friends from Leisure World attended a luncheon at Lin's to celebrate the birthday of Mary Gainer, hosted by Stan Gainer and Phyllis Connett.  After lunch the group returned to the Activity Room where Ruth Elliott had set tables for ice cream and cake.
If you see walking, flashing lights in the park it is not an Alien from outer space.  It is Mary Gainer with her walking stick that Ruth Elliott gave to her. 
Those who were unable to attend due to other commitments and/or illness were greatly missed.

 Texas Longhorn Steakhouse was our first eat out of the summer season.  Jewett Powers and Carol Slater are our hosts this year. We had our first eat-out on Thursday the 10th  and did we have a crowd, which really made it fun, a lot of gabbing and a lot of laughter. There were 47 of us talking and cutting up and when we started eating, did it ever get quiet! I think there are a few people that hesitate to go back North and I don't blame them.  Like I said 47 of us, and we took up at least 1/4 of the steak house....We had a few extras like: Dorothy Nill's two sons, Jo Anne's daughter and Mary Baas had a son and daughter-in-law present, so when I post the pictures you will see new young faces! Nice to have Youth in the park, if only for awhile.

                              Frank has his arms crossed, he must be trying to shut me out.

                Some of them complained about food in their mouth, I said, "Shut up and smile!"
                                                      Mary has a birthday coming up
                                                       Phyllis just had her hair done.


 Now Marian was just all over the place, she loved having her picture taken. Good subject I might add. Nice smile.
