Cold but as much as yesterday! We did go up to 68*F! Anyway, after our morning routines, we went geo-caching and found the balance of the ones we missed in Weslaco. We were really good in that we didn’t stop for a beer at any pub (we saw two!J) I stopped at Radio Shack too to pick up a new in line fuse holder then we came home, had a drink outside, dinner and the tube!
We’ve been one month already, time is flying by! We went into town to pick up a couple things and some movies. We had lunch at a local Pub, “The Pecker”, then came home to watch a movie. It was cloudy most of the day with a North wind but the sun did come out at the end of the day, our high was 69*F.! We got a new neighbour behind us from Kansas.
Another cold night and morning, the wind is from the North again! Val’s friends didn’t show this morning so she didn’t do any walking. Val made some small dog rolls then at 3 pm, we went to the Hall to celebrate a friend’s birthday. His wife made a delicious tourtiere, the “Lac St-Jean” way and other people brought different dishes and hors d’ouevres. It turned out to be dinner out too. There were about 16 people present. We even met new people. Anyway, we had fun and lots of stories to be heard. We got back home around 6 pm and watched a couple movies in the evening.
We learned late in the evening that our good friend, Glenda (& Terry) who is presently in Mesa, received the sad news that her dad passed away earlier. We shared in her sadness as we knew him too as “Uncle George”, a great man who will be dearly missed. Our thoughts are with the family.
Cloudy and cool again today but the wind has switched to the South-East which means warmer air. Val did laundry and I repaired a couple things around the house, washed the kayaks and moved them away from under the tree as the birds were messing on them. We got a lot of new arrivals today, I’m told over 40! We now have three new neighbours. At 4 pm, we went over to Ed for happy hours and met a new couple, Bill and Joan. After dinner, we watched a couple movies we picked up earlier. We had a warm evening, it is still 65* at 11 pm.
Cloudy, warm and windy was the last day of 2012 in Weslaco Texas! Val went for exercises and I took Tucker for our morning jaunt. In the afternoon, we went to town to return some movies and pick up some stuff for tonight. At 4 pm, we went out with 8 other friends for dinner at LIN”S, a Chinese/steak buffet bar. It was quite delicious. We came home, watched the tube for a while, got ourselves ready for the New-Year’s dance at the hall. We went over at 8:30 and joined our neighbours (12 of them) for a wonderful and fun-filled evening and brought the New-Year in style. The Hall provided us with sandwiches and a variety of other small snacks around 10:30 pm. The music was fairly good and we did lots of dancing.
