Park Happenings

The crafters were busy  today making little Christmas trees. There weren't many there and I'm sure they would welcome more. They meet every Monday afternoon at 1:00 and I know they have fun. Somehow in my past listing of those who are here I missed LeRoy and Elaine Misfeldt. Also Eugene and Naoma Pratt arrived Saturday. I haven't seen them yet but I'm hoping they will be up for coffee and donuts tomorrow in Allen Hall.

I am pleased to report that the doctors have released Dave Bruun and he and Mary are on their way. They expect to be here sometime Wednesday. Dale & Caroline Eichor are also on their way and they thought they would arrive Thursday.

A few of us are shooting pool in the evening and I think there are some of the card games started. Remember to sign up for the Christmas Parade sub supper and also for Christmas dinner. The Christmas Parade will be Thursday Dec. 20. Get your golf carts, bikes, or whatever decorated and prepare to have some fun.

Angel Tree in Allen Hall

The Angel Tree is up in Allen Hall as well as the big tree in the other corner. I will put that one on next time. This tree is decorated solely with angels and  it has white lights. It is so pretty and you have to really take the time to look at it to see all the different kinds of angels on it.

Bluegrass Jammers

Every Monday afternoon from 4:00-6:00 the Bluegrass Jammers gather in Allen Hall and everyone is welcome to come in and listen. Included in the group are Deral Rogers and Jay Kelly. Deral is shown playing his guitar and Jay is on the fiddle (violin) and you can sese his guitar sitting there too. It's very good music and you can come and stay as long as you wish.

Andy's Roses

Andy Harper planted and tended these roses after most of us left last spring. For those of you who don't grow roses, struggling with lots of heat which is what they had here all last summer makes growing roses rather difficult. Andy knows what he's doing though and  now that it is a bit cooler these roses are going to make a lovely addition alongside the shuffleboard court.

Park Happenings

Here it is the 2nd of December and when I look around the park after dark, I see lots of really beautiful Christmas decorations up already. We got here yesterday and it was around 84 or thereabouts which after leaving home on Tuesday in 15 degree weather, felt really warm. It didn't take very long to get rid of my winter type clothes for some cooler duds. We don't have our Christmas lights up yet but we will soon.

There  have been lots of people arriving in the last few days and I would call this the "after Thanksgiving" rush. Max & Mary Pierce are here although I haven't seen Mary, I did spy Max on his bike. Tom and Joyce Rietveld are settling in where Karl & Caol Kapke formerly lived. Like several others in the park I believe their air conditioner was filled with water from all the rain they had here earlier. That's got to be a bummer when you turn the air on for the first time and it is full of water. Bob and Linda Dick are here as well as Jay & Joyce Kelly, Keith Gilbertson, Rev. Gerald and Karen Goetz, and arriving this afternoon were Don and Margaret Schmaltz. It is good to see everyone again and as I understand it, their are more on their way or, soon to be on their way.

Tomorrow is the December business meeting and then I believe the trees and decorations will be put up at 1:00 tomorrow afternoon. We've never been here quite this early so are looking forward to helping with the trees.

I intend to get around and take a few pictures of various things I've seen just in the short time we have been here and will get them posted soon.

If you are on the road or soon will be on the road, travel safe and we look forward to seeing you!
