Lucy has colon cancer. She had surgery Sat. and they removed all the cancer and reattached the colon. Lucy is doing well, she is very tired and all cards, prayers and well wishes I'm sure will be appreciated.
Mom is resting. She is in hospice at Gunderson hospital in La Crosse Wi What caused her problem is lack of blood to her intestine and basicly the intestine started to deteriorate and is too far gone to be able to do anything for her. Dad and I got here about 10 this morning and Mom knows who we are. She is very swollen and breathing like a fish out of water. Will update more later if things change. Elinor and Connie stayed the night with Mom last night. All but Roger will stay tonight if nothing changes. David
just received word this am that they took eva to the hospital in WI. I just heard from their youngest son that he was on his way home to IA -as they do not expect eva to live another 2-3 days. Something about another stroke and this time it affected her lower intestines. Just now another call and she had 3 holes in the lower intestine and the intestine was dead. Will let you know if I hear anymore news. Everyone on their way to be with mom and dad. TKS jld
Keep this list - - - and Send a copy to your senior friends and relatives.
As I was waiting in line behind an older gentleman at Wendy's recently, I heard him ask for his senior discount. The girl at the register apologized and charged him less. When I asked the man what the discount was, he told me that seniors over age 55 gets 10% off everything on the menu, every day.
Being of 'that' age myself, I figured I might as well ask for the discount too.
This incident prompted me to do some research, and I came across a list of restaurants, supermarkets, department stores, travel deals and other types of offers giving various discounts with different age requirements. I was actually surprised to see how many there are and how some of them start at the young age of 50. This list may not only be useful for you, but for your friends and family, too. Dunkin Donuts gives free coffee to peopleover 55. If you're paying for a cup every day, you might want to start getting it for free.

This article sent to me from Eleanor Piche in Canada is about illegals in Victoria Palms. Weird, right?
"Donna police say that this case was quite rare.
Usually illegal immigrants are found hiding out in more rural or run-down areas, but not in areas as luxurious as the Victoria Palms RV Resort in Donna. A phone call from management about a possible stash house led Donna police to the park on Monday afternoon. By the time officers and Border Patrol agents arrived, neighbors saw over a dozen illegal immigrants jump the fence and flee into a nearby cornfield. Though it seems stash house busts are on the rise in the valley, Lieutenant Rick Suarez says the Victoria Palms was the last place he thought as a pit stop for human smugglers. "I'm very surprised to see that that's where they're storing them now. Normally they'd stash them in old beat up houses. In this particular case, I guess they were storing them there. But it got people's attention," admits the lieutenant. Lt. Suarez then says police and border patrol officers rounded up twelve men and one woman. They all admitted they'd been traveling to the united states all the way from el Salvador. Management at the Victoria Palms chose not to comment about this case. They say they are still waiting for the investigation to finish."
We are one of the oldest parks in the valley and within walking distance of the famous Don-Wes Flea Market. Along with being one of the oldest we also have the wonderful reputation for being a friendly and active park. We have an association of members who give generously of their time in a myriad of ways to make coming to the Rio Grande Valley each winter a whole bunch of fun for everyone. So come on down and have fun with us!!!
