Update for Missing Linda Kay

Greetings, my friends. I have been missing in action, and probably will still be somewhat unpredictable. My first problem is that I don't have my glasses prescription yet, following the cataract surgery. It was such a glamorous spectacle (pardon the pun), as you can see.
Today I get my prescription. My left eye was done many years ago, and I still have to have correction for astigmatism. So I've been trying to function, read, write, etc., with one corrected lens for my left, lazy eye, and no lens in the right eye until I can get my prescription and order my glasses. It's been a bit challenging and so much happening!






The really fantastic news is the arrival of my new great granddaughter.....how did that happen???? A GREAT grandchild. Adelyn Beth lives in Lisle, IL, where her daddy is a dental school student.

This is just one day old. She weighed 8.93#s, and was only 20.5 inches long, so she has such really cute chubby cheeks. 


Daughter Angel is the grandmother, or Mimi as she prefers to be called. Adelyn's mother is Angel's oldest daughter of three, just turned 23 in July.


And here she is at just two weeks in her jeans and North Face vest. 

We get to see her at Christmas for a week, when she makes her first airplane flight to Texas.

Have a wonderful week and a joyous Thanksgiving. I have much to be grateful for, how about you?

Animals at the Zoo

Monkey see, monkey do? How about some animals from the zoo?







The giraffes are my favorites. I am so fascinated by those long necks and how they move so gracefully. The Asian elephants at the San Antonio zoo are kind of small compared to African elephants. My hubby loves the bears, but some of them were inside in the caves to keep cool, as it was almost 90 degrees when we were there. Can't blame them!

Here's my post-election comment!

Birds at the Zoo

The San Antonio Zoo is also in Brackenridge Park and it's really a lovely and natural environment for the critters living there. The Zoo has a great number of birds on display, so I got a couple of photos to share with you. I didn't write down the names, but maybe you can identify them?




I thought this was a really sweet little thing to share with you on this Monday.


Have a special week!

Friday Miscellaneous

I'm setting this post up ahead, as I have cataract surgery on Thursday. I might have a little trouble focusing on the screen until I get new glasses set for the new lens. Amazing things people do. How do you ever acquire the skill to be an eye surgeon???

I've shown you pictures of our purple passion flower, but now one of our red blooms popped open on another plant, so had to share it with you.


I voted already in this most unusual election, but had to share this with you.


We had some tile left over from our previous house. Our fireplace hearth in this house was a plain slab of rock, so I decided it would look much nicer with some tile on it for a finish. This is how it turned out.


Since the tile man would have some extra time, I asked him to also do the front porch. We found the tile we needed and he completed the job the same day. Makes it look much more finished than the raw concrete. I love it.


Have a special weekend in your neck of the woods!

Japanese Garden

Hubby and I decided to spend a little time exploring in San Antonio, so one of our stops was at the Japanese Garden in Brackenridge Park. This park has many amenities, including the Zoo, and I'll show you a few photos from there later. Here are some of the pics from our tour of the Garden. This first one is from the entrance to the park, up a number of steps to the top of a hill.


Inside the gazebo atop the hill. We marveled at all the rock work to create the columns etc.


This was looking down from a walkway at the gardens. Beautiful blue flowers.


It wouldn't be a Japanese Garden without the Koi. There were many colors to enjoy.


Walkway to the waterfall was so restful with the water on both sides and the fish in the ponds.


I had to get a video of the waterfall, to share the sound with you.

Hope you have a wonderful week, my friends. The weather in Texas is still a little warm, in the 80s, but it's beautiful. No complaint! I'll be around to visit y'all today.

Class Reunion 2017

Our class from Delavan Community High School meets in our hometown for the annual Alumni Banquet every five years. Next year in June will be our 55th! I have no idea how those years have passed us by. Here's the roster of the class in our small town.


I am third from the right, bottom row.


Center right, bottom row, third from the right of classmates. Our class rep Mr. Hubbs makes it back for our class reunions and is a dear friend to many of us on Facebook. Dorothy Murphy is on the far left, also a class rep, but it has been many years since she could attend. We have lost only two of our classmates: Carl Key and Martha Murphy. 

Some still live in Delavan or in the area, while most of us have moved to places all over the U.S. But when we get together, many of the years fade away. It's nice to have a small class from a small town. 

Thanks for reminiscing with me, my friends. Have a wonderful weekend.

Linda Kay
