Seguin Welcomes Caterpillar

This Stage of Life

I remember when I would see friends at dances and plays . . . movies - all sorts of places. Then, with young children, we would visit with friends at school productions or athletic events. I would visit with other grandparents when I took the grandchildren to the park or a museum or musical.
NOW I see everyone I know at the doctor's office or the Wellness Center! I am very grateful for the excellent medical facilities we have here in Seguin. Keeps the motor running . . .

Habitat for Humanity

Since its founding in 1976 by Millard and Linda Fuller, Habitat for Humanity International has built and rehabilitated more than 300,000 houses with partner families, helping house more than 1.5 million people and becoming a true world leader in addressing the issues of poverty housing.
Through the work of Habitat, thousands of low-income families have found new hope in the form of affordable housing. Churches, community groups and others have joined together to successfully tackle a significant social problem – decent housing for all.

A Blank Screen

We rely so much on our computer; it seems as though our Life is on the computer. Poor little thing was being treated by the Computer Gurus at Computer Link for a week and thank goodness, we now have it back - in good condition. The problem? I updated from Internet Explorer 7 to Explorer 8 - and it caused all kinds of havoc. My computer was virtually at a standstill: no documents would open, no internet access, etc. Don't need to bore anyone reading this with my Boo Hoo Poor Me No Computer story - BUT we are back in business now. And very grateful!

By nine the next morning I was in San Antonio, the one truly lovely city in the state.
...We have never really captured San Antonio, we Texans -- somehow the Spanish have managed to hold it. We have attacked with freeways and motels, shopping centers, and now that H-bomb of boosterism, HemisFair; but happily the victory still eludes us. San Antonio has kept an ambiance that all the rest of our cities lack.
