Football Season has arrived

 Donna and I attended the game in Basehor, Kansas Friday September 6 to watch our grandsons play.  This picture was taken after the game so you can see by the happy faces they won the game.  They won 20-17 in overtime.  What a nice birthday present for grandpaw.   As you can see both boys have some height.  Number four (Zach) is a senior and he is listed as 6'1"200 lbs.  Number 19 (Nick) is a junior and he is listed as 6'3" 190 lbs.   I have my shoes on and that is why I appear to be taller than #4.

Musician Needed

Our Leisure World Church Family is in need of a piano player for the coming year! Our services will begin on the first Sunday in November and will end on the last Sunday in March. I'm sure everyone who attends would agree that making a joyful noise unto the Lord is a major part of the service.
If there is anyone out there willing to provide this wonderful part of our service, please contact Beth Staton at 620-229-4145. Regardless, hurry back to your winter home.

Ray Howard - Former Resident

We were saddened to hear of the death of former Leisure World resident Ray Howard. Ray and Helen were active in the Activities of the park, and Ray employed his skill as an electrician in assisting many of his fellow residents. They lived in Leisure World from 1999 to 2007. They then purchased a brick home at 2005 Bald Cypress here in Weslaco. Ray passed away on Friday, August 22. Helen expresses her heartfelt thanks for the many cards, calls and expressions of sympathy.

The Next Generation

We had our house repainted this week. We are pleased and think it looks great. However, Cindy Jalife noted the condition of LeoNerd, our guardian lion. She correctly noted that it was somewhat weathered.

 I agreed and advised that I would be looking for a replacement, and update. Knowing how rapidly I move on a project (the tortoise has nothing on me when it comes to flat out speed), Cindy indicated that would be a good idea.

Cindy came knocking at the door last evening. Behold she delivered a gift of LeoNerd II.  He is now in place at the northwest corner of our newly repainted home!  Thank you, Cindy, we are now fully protected!

A Great Tour in Fredricksburg

Spent last weekend visiting Niel and Carol Powers at their home in Kerrville! Beautiful home, gracious hosts, lovely location! Needless to say, I can not thank them enough for their caretaking and hospitality. Carol (Slater) and Jewett were at a needlework get together in Kerrville, and I bummed a ride there and back and had wheedled an invitation from Niel and Carol.
While we saw and did many great things in the beautiful hill country, a highlight of the visit for me was a tour of the National Museum of the Pacific War in Fredricksburg. Here is a photo of my hosts and me alongside a naval gun outside of the museum.

We spent over half a day touring the museum, and got less than halfway through the WWII Pacific exhibits. I can not praise the museum highly enough. I would recommend it to any and all, a couple of days in Fredricksburg. Texas, will be enlightening, educational, and a visit you won't soon forget. If you want to know more about the museum, here is the web page:
The admission tickets are valid for 48 hours...and if you visit you'll understand why so long.

The LWAA Board has voted to delay the annual Patio Sale from the usual October date until November 8th this year. Maxine Rice will again be the coordinator, and it is hoped that any of our Winter Texans who wish to participate can plan now on an early enough arrival date.
