Those big earth movers did a great job at taking away all those mountains of dirt behind the new houses.

The ball field is doing well.

Swimming pool is still waiting for the big pour.

The golf course is being scalped and prepped for reseeding.

So much tender care that we don't stop to think about.  Edging all along the concrete.

The big street sweeper is constantly on the move in the construction area.

There is a whole new block of houses over on Coyote Moon in the 1357 neighborhood.

Just about every piece of equipment imaginable is out in phase 3 today prepping for the streets to get their asphalt.

The smell of hot tar is in the air as the edge seal is poured.

Bount's "assembly crew" is hard at work on the new houses.

Every machine including the old fashion shovels are hard at work.  I'm going back out there this afternoon and find a safe place to just sit and watch.  There is sooooo much activity out there.

Of course Mr. Dawson and Fernando are ever present with watchful eyes on every aspect.

I believe this is the area for future restrooms.

Looks like all the concrete work is done at the south pavilion which will be referred to as 
 Palm Shadows.

Just a reminder for those of you that are already here..........be sure to sign up for the soup and salad potluck to be held tomorrow.  Bring your own dinnerware.  Still time to sign up at the front desk.


Working as a pediatric nurse, I had the difficult assignment of giving immunization shots to children. One day, I entered the examining room to give four-year-old Lizzie her injection.
“No, no, no!” she screamed.
“Lizzie,” scolded her mother, "that's not polite behavior.”
With that, the girl yelled even louder, “No, thank you! No, thank you!"

And my personal favorite…
God’s Problem Now!
His wife's graveside service was just barely finished, when there was a massive clap of thunder, followed by a tremendous bolt of lightning, accompanied by even more thunder rumbling in the distance. The little, old man looked at the pastor and calmly said, "Well, she’s there."
