Cactus


Even the cactus looks better now that we have had some rain. We recieved one and one half inches this last weekend. It wasn't as much as others had but it really is getting things green.

They look a little defferent once they get out of the water, don't they?

Killdeer




This Killdeer was laying on these eggs. When I approached she did her cripple act luring me away from the nest. Later she was back incubating the eggs.

Lindsay and Lex's Birthdays

Lindsay's birthday was the seventy of September. Here she is celebrating her first.
Lex's birthday is September ninth. His birthday and birth was a family happening as we had him in the front seat of our Chevy Blazer. His big sister was four then and was trying to take care of her Mother by standing behind her and asking her if she was OK.

Our kids have always been a joy in our lives and now Greg, Lindsay's husband, and Kristi, Lex's wife make our lives even more joyful.

Visiting Mammaw

Lex and Kristi stopped in for a visit with Mammaw on their first day here. She said she was sure glad to see them. They caught her laid up in her new "digs" at the Haven in San Antonio. Lex and Kristi are making a whirlwind pass through Texas. They drove to Dallas to visit with Kristi's family and on to Pleasanton for a visit with us. Next stop is Houston where they will be attending a wedding. After that the will be traveling home to South Carolina where their dog Ginobli has been visiting with friends.

Greenjay


These birds have moved in over the last eight or so years. In the sixties I never saw one further north than Kingsville. The same can be said for other species of birds too.
