Friday, January 19 – We are enjoying our time here at Leisure Valley Ranch in Mission, Texas. Like most of the nation the weather has been less than favorable with record setting temperatures down in the 30's. Thankfully, it appears over and temperatures are forecasted to climb back to the customary 70's.


We've enjoyed several social events with friends. There have been happy hours, dances, and card parties. Of course, Marsha, has enjoyed getting together with her lady friends and has picked up a new glass painting. She was so proud of her painting prowess. Like a little girl with her “all – A's” grade card! Now where do we pack those wine glasses, brushes, and paint jars?

Thanks to Cookie for sharing her supplies and techniques.

Marsha in deep concentration.

She never starts out simple.

Side 2. Marsha said she ran out of time and didn’t get to finish this side like she wanted to.

We've also enjoyed meeting up with old friends over lunch. We meet our friend, John, for lunch at Riverside Restaurant located on the Rio Grande River. We originally met John many years ago via his blog. We catchup every other year during our visit here to the Rio Grande Valley. Angie and Rick have joined us the last couple visit with John. John and Paul always enjoy the huge pork tenderloin sandwich. Great time with great friends.

This is the actual size of the sandwich.

We've always wanted to take the river cruise that leaves Riverside Restaurant and have plans to do that in the very near future. Check back and share our adventure.

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