From left to right: Becky (MOM4407Becky), Fern (ARTSKY) and moi Marcy (MNNSAIDE)
Becky and I live about 10 minutes or less apart - different towns - Fern lives in Brownsville where I used to live when we moved there in 1972 and until I sold my parents beautiful resaca home in 2004.
Fern gave us a tour of her lovely home with many of the pictures and painting done by her and her husband. We had a lovely little pot luck lunch of chicken salad, potato salad and fruit salad with the fixings.
Then we had a nice tour of the park - riding in the golf cart - with a beautiful cool breeze - rare for this time of year in South Texas!!! Loving the weather - soon it will be in the triple digits.
I fell in love with the parks Swans!!!!
Fern and Becky - were so patient with all my stops to photograph!!!
This is a statue from a little memorial area with bricks layering the path of residents who have passed or some that have already bought their bricks. I loved this statue as it reminded me of my aunt and uncle who both passed 2 years ago of Alzheimer's. The man is showing his wife a picture book of animals and plants - similar to what my cousin made for her mom. The girls didn't know but I had a lump in my throat when I got closer to it.
Fern showed us where she teaches swimming classes in one of the three pools, so beautiful.
We didn't go swimming as planned as the water was toooooo cold!!
Oh when we went into the club house - I had to ask if there were pool tables as I am a pool shark!!! I regret not taking a picture of the awesome pool room with two pool tables. I didn't want to leave that room!!!!
It was so awesome - every time we came up to golf cart that had dogs with their owners, the dogs would perk up and fern would make a u-turn - she had snacks for them and they new it!!!! I wish I would have taken pictures of them.
Thank you Fern for a great time!!! We will get together again!!!!
IRENE - DIDMIS started the gatherings in our team - she is smiling down on us!!!!
