Thursday, January 27 – Another very busy day. Paul rode his bike, Marsha attended aerobics and then off for another two hours of dance lessons. We actually did pretty good. We forgot a few steps. We learned more new steps, and they even threw in the Cha-Cha. We don’t think we want to learn that dance. We already have enough on our plates with the other four dances!

We also hit the Texas Thrift shop. It is about 4 steps below the Goodwill store. Marsha loved the Goodwill store in Ohio. We were looking for something to wear tomorrow night at the Luau. BINGO…Marsha found two shirts, and Paul got one that he will be proud to wear.

This evening we heard the Goldwing Express band. Goldwing Express is made up of Three Native American brothers and their father.


They sing, play and tell funny stories. A segment of their performance is dedicated for their Indian Heritage. Each Brother wears his very own Native American Headdress which represents the Creek Indian Tribe from which their Mother is from.


We really enjoyed the program. When they leave this area, they are headed for Florida. They play all across the country. Their schedule is on their website. If you are looking for some good clean entertainment, check them out.

Friday, January 28 – Where does the time go. We can’t believe it is Friday already! The morning started out a bit different than other mornings. We headed up to the clubhouse at 8:15 to help set up for the Luau that takes place this evening. Paul helped set up chairs and tables, and Marsha helped with decorations. Marsha left early and went to her aerobics.

The Luau began at 5. We put reserve papers on the tables this morning so our group could sit together. We got there about 4:45, and it was packed! Our friends, Lynn and Mike, were in charge. The place looked super.



We voted, and Norm got the best dressed award. Can you see why?

Donna and Norm


Betty and Jay…not sure what those umbrellas are suppose to represent.


Winnie and Les…It’s OK to smile Les.


Just the two of us.


We had a delicious meal from 5-6 and then the entertainment began. The evening entertainment began with a short story about a traditional Luau. We had two “unique” looking Hawaiian men help with the explanation.


The Lawn Chair Drill Team entertained us with their “precision” performance. Just by looking at their uniforms, you can probably tell they were very disciplined.



Their final position.


Music and dancing took off after that. We did line dancing, 2-step and even had a lesson on how to do the Hula. We all had a wonderful time. We stayed and help clean up, went home and crashed! How much more fun can one couple have?

Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see y’all back real soon. Have a great day!
