Everything is bigger in Texas!

They say everything is bigger in Texas and here are just a couple of pictures to show you how big things can be. The first is a Prickly Pear Cactus taken a couple of years ago. The next is just a part of a tree. The thing is HUGE and lastly is a Bougainvillea. No it isn't really big but it does have some of the biggest, sharpest thorns on it you have ever seen. It's a beautiful shrub but oh so mean!

A Blast from the Past

Remember this cute little family that resided at the Chet & Irma Johnson house. She had the name of "Porchie" and she had the cutest bunch of kittens. Porchie now lives in Wisconsin at the Ferrell residence.

From Marty Harper

For those of my generation who do not, and cannot, comprehend why Facebook exists:

I am trying to make friends outside of Facebook while applying the same principles.

Therefore, every day I walk down the street and tell passers-by what I have eaten, how I
feel at the moment, what I have done the night before, what I will do later and with whom.

I give them pictures of my family, my dog, and of my gardening, taking things apart in the
garage, watering the lawn, standing in front of landmarks, driving around town, having
lunch, and doing what anybody and everybody does every day.

I also listen to their conversations, give them the "thumbs up" and tell them I like them.

And it works just like Facebook.

I already have four people following me:

two police officers,
a private investigator
and a psychiatrist.😊

Funny Looking Bird

This strange looking "bird" in the bird bath belongs to Phyllis and George. He was a bit too fast for me as he was already trying to get out when I got the pic snapped. He had been curled up in it, just enjoying life.

Donn and Peggy are at home in Nevada

Donn and Peggy are home in Nevada and last I heard she was trying to straighten out her postal service in Carson City.  Let us know how this goes, Peggy, and sorry to take so long in telling everyone that you are okay. Okay that is except for the post office bit.

Message from Reggie

We too are glad to be up here again but next season will wait till it is really Spring!!! Duane and my son are working on our house as much as they can. The insurance company put us up into a motel for a week, then moved us into an apartment this last Wednesday until the end of July. In the midst of all this, Duane and Larry's sister Carol was laying in hospice unresponsive for the last 7 days until her body finally gave in.  Thought I'd send you her obituary.  Thank you."
Clarification from Barb- Carol is the sister of Duane and Larry Ergan. Reggie and Duane's home in Minnesota suffered frozen and broken pipes while they were in South Texas. Their insurance company has been very helpful in helping them deal with all the problems connected with it.
