We headed into Hondo to get groceries, and shopped at an H.E.B. grocery first. I must say they have very nice produce – we got some more corn on the cob, and I’ll be fixing that for lunch tomorrow! We then went to Walmart and spent more money – we needed a water filter so that the water coming into the MH was filtered – we have a separate one under the sink for drinking, but we wanted one on the other one too, double protection! Of course we also bought a few other things – my red tank top had gotten a drop of oil/dressing from a salad, and I missed hitting it with oxyclean before I washed it, so I found a nice one to replace it with – I’m going to go through clothes when we get to Rockport again – we both have some items that need to find good homes.
Tonight was an Ice Cream Social – you take your bowl and spoon and 50 cents per scoop of ice cream with toppings – it was great! After the ice cream, I stayed and played card bingo. It was a lot of fun and I won two games, so I actually got to play for free (I won 2.75 and it cost $2.00 to play). Met some lovely people, and was able to give some advice to a wonderful lady who has raised her grandson and is trying to get him into college – however getting custody paperwork in order so that he can get financial aid is a nightmare for her and her husband. They want me to go with them to play bingo tomorrow night at the church – it is $12 to play but the pots start at $50…we’ll see if I feel like it or not!
I'll close with a few more pictures of some very lush landscaping!
These caladium were as big as dinner plates...lovely!
