Daily Tour

Join me as we take our daily tour around the park.  The flowers are a little late this year, but here they come!  We had some cold snaps that aren’t healthy for young plants so here’s hoping the cold stays away.

We could hear lots of laughter and cheers as we neared the lawn bowling court.  I’ve tried this game a couple times and it is NOT as easy and simple as it first appears.  Give it a try sometime.  Sit and watch or chat with the folks and they’ll be glad to get you involved.  It’s fun!

Next we had to stop up at the activities office to check on our bridge scores.  Say hello to the gals at the front reception desk.

The billiards room was quite busy when we peeked in the door.

There was a bit of commotion out behind the building so of course we bopped over to see what was happening.  The whole staff was busy helping with a delivery of new tables and chairs for the new sewing room.

Wendell Johnson was touring the inside so we sneaked a peek too.

The new style of sky lights are amazing with how much sunlight they cast indoors.

I guess we’re waiting for more city permits before further interior work can begin.  It’s hard to wait!!

It looks like the big dog park is ready to go.  The grass is green and the fence is up.  Can’t wait to watch the pups have fun in their new play area.

The gardens look GREAT!  Congratulations to the whole garden group.  Do you have a green thumb?  Join the group on Thursdays at 1:00 to learn more.

On the way back home we stopped by Lot 1396 where they’re building the model “Casita” site.   Nancy from the Sales Department explained that this will be a model site to give RVers & 5th Wheels some nice options for site improvements.  I’m betting it will be very popular.  I’ll be driving by to watch the progress and will keep you updated.

That concludes our tour for the day.  Hope you enjoyed the trip around the park.

By the way…………………..I have many people approach me for “beginner” computer classes so I’m going to try the first one up in the SanTan Room.  Wednesday, December 28, at 1:00-3:00 we’ll meet just for BEGINNERS and those who need a refresher of the bare basics of computer use.  Describe the desktop, files and folders, and a bit about navigating the web.  It’s basically to understand the computer in non-techie terms.  How we store our documents and photos and music.  Just the easy stuff.  Nothing hard or fancy.  If you know of anyone who may be interested, there is a sign up sheet in the Activities Office on a clip board that says “Computer Classes”. 

There is a second class for January 19 that is all about using Picasa for your photo management.  We’ll present a complete overview of the program and what it can do for us. 

My favorite class is, of course, the one-on-one sessions when folks bring their computer here to the house for a private lesson.  I think that’s the best way to learn when you actually get hands on experience.  Don and our son, Kevin, are both here to help with the techie problems too.

This coming Wednesday, December 21, our computer club will be learning about Google Earth and how to navigate the world!  Feel free to join us at 9:30 in the SanTan room.  Our club President, Mike Salter, will be presenting.

Have a great day!
