Papaya Lesson

Female is the one with all the fruit and it looks like there will soon be enough papaya to supply all who want it. I love it but it seems it is like you love tropical fruit or you do not. Many of them have similar flavors and consistencies. Papaya and Mangos seems to me, could be cousins. Not every one agrees. 
All of the birds love the Gordon's fountains.

The ladies play

There are a group of women who play cards most every night in the pool hall. They were gathered last night to play and celebrate Charlotte's birthday at the same time!
Seated round are Darlene, Charlotte, Edna, Joanne and Vera.

Vera, Robin, Carol and Lil.

 Charlotte shared her cake!

When we walk...

It sometimes takes longer to make our way around the park when Butch and Peggy have to make over every friendly animal we encounter.

If Bo is free for a minute or two he will dash up the road to greet us.

 Indie and Daisy always like a scritch or two as well.

Squeak likes his scritch through the glass.
 I need to be a bit taller to get the best angle on this shot.

I would not have known had Deon not told me. When Peggy and I were walking in the cool of the evening Deon was taking bird pics. I happened to have my camera with me so I joined her.

This Mornings Photo shoot

Deon, hiding behind a directory has plenty of directory's yet to sell. It is nice to have an extra one. If you cannot find one, perhaps you can find the other. Bring your $3 on Tuesday.

Today was the annual patriotic performance on Presidents day. It is one of the coffee hours of the year that has a high attendance number. Pictured above are the Choraliers.

Lap quilts were presented to our two oldest veterans. Pictured above with his two daughters, Karen and Linda is Clarence Cooke.

Marj Soole has a friendly little gnome in her backyard.

 These two kitty's were photo ops at the Cheryl and Joe Raleigh residence.

Volunteer cacti

 Don Knorr is grilling hotdogs for today's Jam lunch. He was so intent on his work he had no idea his picture was taken.

This lady hangs out at the laundry. I was taken with her hairdo and her unique "eyes".

Loni Barton passed

This is all we have currently for an obituary. If one becomes available at a later date it will be posted at that time.

In Memory of

Loni Lowry Barton_

July 28, 1917 - February 14, 2017

My memories of Loni.
She was very secretive about her age.
She played Bridge (the card game) and in her last years playing she was told she had to wear her glasses if she wanted to play- so she did- on top of her head.
She walked all the way across the park to put her garbage in the dumpster right up to the time she left the park and that was last year.

I remember all the fun times we had together on the way and in the park at Cedar
Point with our beloved Aunt Rose :).
We went down for a couple days with Uncle Bob and my parents & my brother,
Scott. U. Bob would grab us from behind in the roller coasters & say "Now your in for it!! There's no going back now!!! " And he'd laugh so loud. Aunt Rose & my Mom (Rose's sister Sylvia ) would both scream all the way down the first big hill... !
We'll miss your laughter A. Rose... Love you lots!!

Olympics at Magnolia

These people were all busy this morning participating in part of the annual Olympics which take place at various park locations each winter. It has been difficult in some cases to get people to participate but these folks were all having a good time and look - if you play, you almost always get fed. It not only takes people to play the games but people to volunteer to help get things ready and serve the food. It's too late this year but think about joining in, one way or another next year.
