Our dear friend, Dale Maki, passed away Saturday morning. His soft spirit and friendship are already missed. His memorial service will be this Sunday. Here’s a picture of Dale with Patty and a friend from China, taken May 1. The second picture is of part of the group that was together that day.
Ruth Evans came from Georgia to join our residents at PG… so now we have 7 residents. Here’s a picture of Ruth, and then a picture of her with the Colsons, George and Norma.
Marilynn Frye is here for a visit from north Texas, and Marilyn Nutt and RoseMary Fandrich (shown with Elton) are here visiting Naomi in the nursing home. Naomi has rallied some with their frequent visits, but she is still very weak. Ron Nutt (Marilyn’s brother) took Marilyn up to Tyler for the weekend.
Jeff Chenault came to do some landscaping and to visit. Here he is with Elton. Michaela and Katie visited, shown here with Kathy and Jeff.
Samuel found a very young fawn in the woods. They are feeding it… it’s growing quickly… named it Bambi. Kathy had three 65th birthday celebrations in May.
A group of Spanish friends came yesterday for a Memorial Day picnic. Here are some pictures.
Here’s a group picture taken this morning, including the 7 residents.
We had another flood last week, the worst so far. Fortunately we haven’t had much damage at PG, but a lot of roads have been closed. Some of our grass carp went out the secondary overflow and were laying in the pasture below. Samuel picked them up and is cooking them… says they’re good! Even John wasn’t interested in trying them.
All the moisture is causing scab (a fungus) to grow on the pecan leaves (black dots). We lost much of our crop to scab last year, so we’re spraying fungicide more often this year… but there’s more rain in the forecast. We know now why farmers are like hound dogs… crying all the time!
