January 28th--heading to the Motown concert
(not in Detroit)
at the Longhorn restaurant
Did not eat this guy
Great concert--these guys came from Vegas to a park near us
We had supper at IHop and viewed the gackles on the wires
Cousin Cody and Karin came to the Island for a winter break.
Cody farms our land.
Alfonso is the artist who painted our tractor and combine
on a tv dish. Now he is doing a scene taken from nephew Jay's plane
Marine Military Academy in Harlingen, TX,
a high school for boys in grades 8-12
Our guide was a retired marine who also was the
regional recruiter. They had students from all over the world.
Encouragement? in the training room
Signs in the dining hall where we ate lunch...
Team leaders earned their ranks
In formation to head to the dining hall...
Pretty stringent training at the academy.
We did the 5k walk across the causeway bridge
from Port Isabel to South Padre Island
with Dennis, Bonnie, and Wendy
Great weather this year on Jan. 14th
I was not "the leader of the pack"
Bob was ahead of me with the rest of the crowd
Went to the Brewery for lunch afterwards with
Bonnie, Jerry B., Kathy, Jerry F., Bob, Dennis, Nancy, Wendy
Then we went to Clayton's for "dessert" :-)
