This just seems like a good day to get another posting out. It is windy and overcast, and a bit chilly. Thank goodness, however, that down here in the valley we can always count on the weather turning around for the better in another day or so! John and I have certainly taken on a different life style in the past months since we have arrived here. There are many social activities in the valley available for Winter Texans. I joined a swimming aerobics class here in the park, and both John and I have joined a biking club. I have mentioned before that we joined the Texas Chorus. We had rehearsals and performances to attend for that in the past month. We had our last concert, with the Winter Texas Orchestra, last evening here in the park. I am sorry that it has come to an end. Speaking of making music, we attended the Rio Grande Valley Music Festival yesterday. Our sister-in-law Mary Jo has been attending many rehearsals for that. Her Dulcimer Group had a couple of performances for the festival. In that group there are about 22 mountain and hammer dulcimer players. Their concert was very well done with some good toe-tapping music! In the picture below Mary Jo can be seen on seen on the stage, she is the woman on the right with a bright pink blouse.
