January 2013 Mission TX


We have been busy living life!  When last I posted it was December 20th – and now it is January 13th!  Some of the things we did were:

  • Christmas Eve David and I made chili for about 100 people – and we did a ‘dirty Santa’ gift exchange – lots of fun!
  • Christmas Day – I made cole slaw and we went to the clubhouse, where the club furnished HAM, rolls, and the rest was pot luck – very good!  I made eggs benedict for our breakfast and it was delicious!  Here is a picture of my Pizzelles Smile

  • New Year’s Eve David had yet another tube placed in his right ear – we had dinner at Johnny Carino’s and then went back to the park.  I had started a crockpot full of kielbasa and sauerkraut, and there were many many good dishes to bring in the new year! 
  • New Year’s Day – we started the new year properly with oatmeal – football and parades, and wonderful shrimp stir fry for dinner – followed by fresh baked pumpkin pie…what a great way to start out 2013!
  • Jan 7 was all day doctor appts for David in Kerrville, where we discovered we were doing better than we expected – his A1C was 7.2, last year it was 8.6, so doc was happy – and now he will see a podiatrist because he has some kind of growth in his foot that is making him limp badly.
  • Jan 8 we headed to Mission, TX with our friends, Bill & Doris Lane.  We are staying at a Passport America park, Mission West, where we paid $245 for two weeks, including electric!
  • Jan 9 we just hung out enjoying the great weather.

  • Jan 10th we went to Mexico, crossing in Progresso.  We went to the dentist and the wait was 3 hours – so we left there, went to an optometrist where I got an exam and 2 pair of progressive glasses for $320…can’t kick about that!  We also got 5 Z packs of antibiotics and some omeprazole, for $56.41.  Now if I get a sinus infection I’m covered! 
  • Jan 11th, we just hung out, letting David’s foot rest.
  • Jan 12th, our park had an open house, with several units brought in from Ron Hoover, golf carts, scooters, free food, door prizes and 5 different entertainers, each band playing about an hour from 11 to 5.  Lots of fun – I went up every hour to check my door prize tickets – we got a hat, and cony dog and ice cream from Weinerschnitzel…we’ll pick that up probably tomorrow!

  1. We hit Mercedes on Friday. Maybe over the weekend we can catch up. We have an event at the Methodist church at noon on Saturday. Maybe either late afternoon Friday or Sunday afternoon or even anytime on Monday.
