The mail arrival has been erratic. The mailman who has our route on a regular basis broke his legs so we have been assigned to whoever they can find to fill in. Sometimes it will be 7 pm or later when the mail arrives. On Tuesday it arrived at 7:00 pm and on Wednesday it was here at 9:00 am. So keep your expectations at a minimum and go with the flow...

The past three mornings have been cool and foggy. My geraniums are covered with foggy dew. Posted by Picasa

From the Reed's

Harold and Iola Wilson stopped by tonight. We enjoyed ALL the pictures and articles from Magnolia Park. Happy to see everyone looking so good. Harold is doing well; Iola also.
Our Best Wishes to Tony and Jo. Sorry to hear about Auggie Becker's passing.
Interesting seeing Ray Thompson's articles. They live one and a half blocks from us here in Atlantic.
Sure miss Magnolia Park and the People !! Have a GREAT winter. Lloyd and Wanda Reed

Bertha's Burgers

There is no sign on the building at the SW corner of S. 14th street and Silver Ave. in Donna TX but if you ask inside they will tell you the name of the place. It started out as a meat market and the family owners began making burgers at lunch for friends. Word spread and now when you go there during their hours of 10:45- 3:00 pm you may have to wait awhile for a seat. A cheeseburger is $3.25 and will easily feed two people. To top it off they are mighty tasty. The place is a little hard to find but well worth the search. Take a friend. Posted by Picasa

Owner Mando serves coffee

Six of us rode 9.67 miles today and then stopped at Vicky's in Donna for breakfast. Some of us enjoyed the special which was two breakfast tacos for $1.99. Next week the plan is to go to Bentsen State Park so get your bike all polished up and join us. Posted by Picasa

Christmas Dinner at Magnolia

Well today we had Christmas Dinner at Magnolia and a great time was had by all.. There was so much food that there was no way you could eat it all so they came back at 5:00 pm and tried again.. The cooks did a great job as usual and the food, prayer and fellowship was just great.. Much laughter and good cheer for all.. May everyone have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year..

Christmas Day 2005

Smile! Christmas Eve at Magnolia Park. The following pictures are those who performed at the Christmas eve program. It was followed by a tremendous variety of finger foods. If one had partaken of all that was offered one could be very ill from overindulgence! Small kitchens in winter residences does not slow down the wonderful cooks of Magnolia Park.
