Gladiolas and Update :-))

I want to let Miss Mildred know that we have enjoyed the gladiola bulbs that she sent last year.... or was it the year before.  I can't remember... time seems to pass me by :-))  The flowers are very beautiful.




We are still working on the office.  The doors are being a problem.  It will eventually be overcome and remodeling will progress.

Frank and I went on another trip out west.  We had a good time despite Frank's Uncle Henry passing.  We did to get to see him before his death.  Frank's Aunt Ora Lee... sister of Uncle Henry passed away just a few days after he did.  Her death was unexpected.  Aunt Ora Lee had lost a daughter to cancer only a couple of weeks before her death.  So with this going on it was hard to smile sometimes.

We did smile even though we were evacuated from the RV park when the Guadalupe River flooded in Kerrville Texas.  Even though we both got a stomach virus while in Benson Arizona we smile.  The Medina River in Castroville threatened us... and we smiled.

If you would like to read of our adventure... I warn you that I am a very uninteresting writer... the travel blog is Wandering About II .  I am not a fast photo editor so the photos are not in the blog, but can be viewed through  Picasa Web Album  or if you prefer you may view through Flickr .

I may try and highlight my favorite places... so stay tuned.

Frank and I are doing pretty well.  We stay busy.... and I spend way too much time on FaceBook farming and chasing bears :-))

I am in physical therapy for neck again.  I'm really trying to improve my posture.  You wouldn't believe how hard it is for me to straighten up.  I'm hoping for lots improvement with not only me neck but my entire back.

I'll try and make time to visit some of your blogs.  I enjoy playing the games on FaceBook with some of you... so thanks for being my neighbor and I'm sorry if I got you addicted to some game.



  1. Hi Zaroga! I have missed you!! So glad to see that you have been traveling and oh my goodness- what adventures you have!- Floods, illness- wow!

    I'm so sorry for the losses in your family recently. My prayers are with you and Frank.

    I'm heading outside to paint our deck railings this afternoon- it's 74 degrees and beautiful- and I hate to sweat- so today's the day!
    I've also got some flowers to pot, hoping my beautiful DIL will help me- I love spending time with her.

    Hope you have a great day!


  2. I see the glads did bloom this year and I mailed them about this time last year. I hope they bring you years of joy. Wonderful to hear from you and Frank. Hope the therapy helps with your neck.

  3. Good to see your electrons again, Zaroga. Nice to read of your travels and sorry about your sad times.

    Your gladiola are lovely!

    Take care of yourself!

  4. Glad to see you back! I don't blog much any more and I HATE Facebook altho I do go on there occasionally.

    Those are beautiful gladiolas! Your trip out west was incomplete. You need to head out again. Maybe bring a bit of warmth with you say low 80's ; ) and some sun. Don't forget that.

    I'm sorry to for your losses this past year. I hope you have fond memories.


  6. Beautiful gladiolas. I'm glad to see you back. I've slowed down on blogging tho I still do. Seems like life keeps getting in the way.

  7. Zaroga...you have not been keeping up with blogging either!! I wonder if facebook is hurting our writing style!! Smile!! i love playing the games too.
    We are doing pretty well here in the North!! The weather is great but we know what is coming...sooner than any of us like to think about!! I will always miss the South

  8. So I can blame YOU for my facebook gaming addiction? (lol) You don't have to stake these glads? Mine always flop over. Very pretty blooms. Happy Holidays to you and yours:)

  9. LOL... yes Carla you can blame me :-)

    I am trying to cut out a lot of the games. I think they consume too much of my brain :-))


Thank you for visiting my Nook. Your comments are much appreciated.
