Juliets

Most of you have heard of the ROMEOs (Retired old men eating out), but have you heard of the JULIETs? I meet monthly with some very good friends, Just Us Ladies Into Every Thing. 

This past week we visited the 1940s display of women's clothing at the Nimitz Museum also known as the National Museum of the Pacific War. Admiral Chester Nimitz was originally from Fredericksburg, so he is a hero of the village. One of the beautiful features of the museum is the Japanese Garden, set up for the museum by a group from Japan to honor Marshal-Admiral Togo, who became good friends with Nimitz. I thought I'd share a few pictures with you. Such a restful, lovely setting.

After our visit we enjoyed lunch and said good-bye to our friends heading north for the summer. They are too chicken to stay here with us in the Texas heat!

My hubby and I continue to volunteer. Yesterday we took in items for our annual Freecycle. Then this morning, our Missions Team arranged all the items outside. We opened at 10:00 AM, and this is what it looked like.



Here are the shoppers - everything is free, like God's grace!
