First, a really big "Get Well Soon" to Dr. Doug Pautz, who suffered some pretty severe injuries in a recent motorycle contest between him and the road - the road won.
Our condolences to the Bolles family in the loss of their son, Matt.
Condolences also to Julie Dill in the loss of her sister, Lori. I had met Lori and she was a hoot!
Pearlie Greebon is back home, and I hope it is with bells on!
Ada Cooley was in fine form when I talked to her on Saturday.
A "glad you're up to snuff" to my dear friend, Leona Smiley, and "get better soon" wishes to the Blanco Songbird, Dorothy Dillon!
It was a treat to see Gertrude Whittington - haven't seen her for a long time!
There is a relatively new small mall, built of faux adobe, on 281 just north of the bridge on the Guadalupe River. It was started by one gentleman, but it is now under new ownership and big plans are in the works! Already there are an art gallery, a wine bar, and a BBQ, and, in that BBQ is a shop called Purseinations. There are purses and jewelry - the jewelry is mostly made by the owner of the shop, Michelle. She had a booth at the Cook for the Cure this past weekend and some really snazzy bling! Inexpensive too! She originally had a display at the Super S Feed Store, which was kind of an unusual place for purses to be noticed, so now you can see all her wares and choose something for yourself for spring! Check it out! There is also an Italian restaurant that is almost complete - the owner already has one at Canyon Lake, so we can expect the same delicious food a little closer to Blanco.
And, last but not least, HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my favorite 55-year-old gentleman in the whole world - my husband, Lyle. He is a keeper!
News from Live Oak - A big thank you to Blanco Elemantary School for bringing all the children to visit our residents on Friday. Two groups came and put on a program and passed out Valentines they had made. Our residents love to see the children when they can come.
Friday afternoon, our residents enjoyed a Valentine’s Party. Entertainment with Darlene Kiernan playing the piano while Dorothy Dillon sang romantic songs from the past.
We also celebrated an early birthday for Nellie Lutrell, born on Valentine’s Day. Her daughter brought lovely decorations for our tables with balloons (pink) and angel cutouts. She also brought a beautiful cake, adorned with a cluster of roses, to share with everyone. Red punch, cookies, cake and candy were passed out.
Doris Kline and Jasper McClellan were crowned as our Valentine King and Queen .
Thanks to Doris Collins who came to help with the party.
