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.

More Silliness

I share with you that the whole political environment in our USA right now is about to put me over the edge. So I dug around to find some things to bring me a smile and am sharing them with you today. Maybe after today I can come up with something with more substance!

#6 is for the Presidential candidates.

Hmmmm, what do you think, guys?

Do we have a prayer that our candidates will read this????

I swear I'm going to get my "train of thought" back soon. I have writing to do!

Just Silliness

Just a few more days until we hear and see the last of the Presidential debates. Thought I'd share some humor with you.

My older brother, Dan, is due for a second hip replacement in January, so thought this was quite funny.

A great escape sounds like a wonderful idea!

Last Friday Art Walk

You may recall that every first Friday we enjoy an Art Walk among the art shops here in Fredericksburg. This is as much a social event as it is artistic, as we usually spend a good deal of time visiting with friends and neighbors sipping our wine and nibbling on snacks. I took a few snaps of ones that were intriguing and some find work by local artisans.

At Larry Jackson Art and Antiques

At Hanna Gallery, also featuring work by MaryNell Dance

Insight Gallery

One of my favorites, so perfect in the detail, at Insight

Adorable work at River Rustic

At the Artisans - won a ribbon at the Mesquite Show.

And a thought to leave you with on this Friday...

Have a wonderful weekend, this middle of October!

Farm Dangers

My younger brother still farms, raising corn and soybeans, on the farm where I grew up. He also farms for a number of other folks, so his fall is very busy with harvest. This year he is pretty much ahead of schedule, just having some soybeans to harvest yet. Yields are good, but prices are down....go figure!

Two years ago, his hired man was driving one of the combines in the field and noticed a spark of fire coming from the back of the machine. He jumped off in time to avoid being caught up in an explosion that left the combine looking like this:

On a brighter note, this was our sunrise on our way to the Wellness Center to exercise:

Have a great Wednesday!

Signs of Fall at HEB

The huge grocery chain here in Texas is the HEB, where I shop every week for nearly all my groceries. I usually make the trip on Friday, but I like to make sure I have plenty of time to wander down the aisles. Do you ever look at some of the stuff on the shelves and think, "Who uses that?" Outside the HEB, guess what is on display?

Down the road on 290 East of town is this wonderful place called "Wild Seed Farms", and this is one filed on display.

The temperature is cooling down, and we are supposed to get a bit of rain as well. Nice to have a break in the heat. Have a happy week!

Passion Flower Pods

Here's an interesting item for you. Remember the beautiful purple passion flower on my post a few days ago?

Well, with the flower dried up, guess what showed up on the flower?

We are guessing they are some sort of seed pod, almost as big as the flower. I'm going to let these dry up a bit, then split them open to see what's inside. Anyone have an idea? Have a wonderful weekend!

As I mentioned on Monday, we celebrated Octoberfest in Fredericksburg this past weekend. Here are a few shots to share with you.   Lots of good food, mostly related to sausage and saurkraut:

Vendors with everything German and Bavarian:

We had a perfect weekend with every room and B & B in Fredericksburg full. I have somehow lost my OomPah band video, but guessing you can live without it!

Fall in Fredericksburg

Check out this blue sky on the first day of Octoberfest in Fredericksburg! I wanted to share a couple of blue pictures with you today, and will post more on the "Fest" later in the week. Joining in today with Jean at the Backyard Neighbors for Blue Monday. Hubby and I were involved in several functions, the last one on Sunday selling food and beverage tickets. The weather for the three-day event was perfect.

My friend Betty posed over the wine serving counter, her specialty was frozen drinks.

More to come. By the end of the week, I'll probably have a tally on this incredible invent that involves so many volunteers.
