I took this in front of Roy and Shirley Benner's home a week or so ago. It is called Bird of Paradise (I think) and if you look at it carefully it does look like a bird.

I read this in the RV newsletter and thought it worthy of sharing. I know my great-grands would have a blast doing this scavenger hunt.

Here are some photos from the program this morning and I want to thank Joyce Kelly for sending me the one with the Choraliers. It would have been a bit hard for me to get a photo and play the piano all at one time so I really do appreciate it that Joyce was able to do that.Thanks to Larry Ergen, Deral Rogers and Abe Wolfe for their help in making the morning special. Also thanks to Pat Jordan and Mamie Havelka for producing the Court House and last but certainly not least, thanks to the Choraliers who gave up a couple of Monday mornings so we could practice. I thought they sounded great and told them so. When we practiced I told them I was pretty impressed and by now, they all know I don't impress very easily!!

Some photos from our Anniversary and Valentine Celebration today. Dave & Sue Greening and Dave & Mary Bruun were the honored guests both celebrating 50 years of marriage this year. We say congratulations to both couples and best wishes for much happiness in the years to come!

Just a few photos from the Bluegrass Band entertainment this afternoon. Our own Jay Kelly is on the fiddle and this group gets together and jams every Monday afternoon in Allen Hall around 4:00 in the afternoon. All are welcome who would like to come to listen. Today there was a free-will offering and they collected more than $500 to be donated to St. Jude. They announced that this season they will be able to donate more than $20,000 from the donations that they have collected. What a great thing that they are doing!!

This morning the Green Parakeets were back on the electrical wire out by Allen Hall above the highway. There was a whole flock of them perched on the wire and this shows just a few.
Yesterday morning the Red-crowned Parrots were taking a break down just off of Pecos Street. The last few mornings and evenings there have been large flocks flying over. Both of these were taken sometime between 7:30 and 8:00 AM, two separate mornings.
