Val looking good
at Halloween;
about 3-5 weeks
before due date.
Shane looking a bit amazed at the size of
the baby's dress, a gift at one of two
showers.  We were heading south so didn't
get to attend the shower. So was fun for
us to see these pictures.
Shower at her
long-time friend,
Phyllis's house.
To left is Val in September. Below, Val and
Shane have done a clever, artistic room all
ready now for the new little one. Below is
the baby's swing. And as you see, her
name will be Elizabeth.
Great looking food at all three showers.
This is the concert band one I believe.
Chairman of Race Committee, Bruce, our
neighbor and good friend. That red
Corvette is the car I'd buy. IF I was going
to buy. After failing to get my trial car over
the overpass without wrecking it, I think
I'll just watch.
Those in the center of the track were very busy uprighting
flipped over vehicles. This is Charlie, and considering some of
the cars actually flying through the air, I'd say he and the other
two men were pretty brave. At times it looked like a demolition
derby instead of a race. Was really fun.
Above is a drone (I hear one
drone flew away, never to
return). Below is the cutest
and fastest and straightest and
smallest car out there.  But
heck, one of the bigger cars
just jumped onto the top of
him. No fair! lol

Right is article from Monitor.
Where they quoted lil' ole me.
We arrived in the park to find a bunch of
men worked long summer hours to build a
race track north of Tampico Hall. It is big,
it is dirt, it has hills, over passes and some
bleachers at its west side.
Our long time good
friend Blackie, on his
John Deere mower. He's
95, going for 100 he
says, and I believe him.
You can tell by
everyone was
having fun.
This is a great
event for our
The fresh grilled hamburgers and hot dogs were top notch.

Thanksgiving at Stratfords & Carreons
Thanksgiving Thursday at Bruce &
Lavern's & Again Friday
at Rosemary's and Juan's
I lament my lack of a camera at Bruce and Lavern's where 12 of us
were fed and entertained royally, on Thanksgiving Day. I guess it
isn't as bad as losing my diamond cocktail ring, but it makes me
very sad not to have even one picture to remember the day. But it
was a memorable day with friends and meal rated over the top and
those who attended will remember anyway, without pictures.
Above is Johnny B. who was the main chef for
the two Thanksgivings celebrated at Juan and
Rosemary's. My favorite was his tomato basil
soup. Fresh basil and his expertise resulted in a
ten-star. He should be on one of the cook show
talent competitions. I'm serious.
Below left is Juan, his Dad and Rosemary his
mother below.
Left above, Carolyn, Rosemary and Vicky.
To right is Jerry, a veteran Navy Corpsman.
Ken with the Carreon's dog, named
Rosemary, to right is Rosie. Below right,

My remarkable husband.
Jerry and Jim, handsome men, whom this
picture does not do justice.
Happy father!!
