Betty Sue & Billy Bob Beagle are right at home. They enjoy their time outside
in the doggie yard. Roaming a full acre is quite fun for them. Don’t know who
was more startled when they encounter wildlife – the horned toads & rabbits or the beagles.
Thankfully the beagle just ran the other way. The horned toads are still here but the
rabbits vamoosed after a few encounters. The beagles still have not mastered barking with a
Texas accent – Woof Woof Y’all.
We are enjoying our
new digs in Lubbock. Now as we become settled in we plan to start taking advantage of
the sights & events here. We’ve already visited Prairie Dog Town, the Silent Wings
museum, the Windmill museum, the Buddy Holly exhibit and some traveling art/craft exhibits.
In 2013 we want to take some extension classes.
What isn’t there to love about Lubbock? The weather is
wonderful. It’s December and the garden still has plants with green leaves and
colorful flowers. The people are all so friendly. The pace here is much slower
than in Denver. You can drive across town within 15 minutes – imagine that.
In Denver we’d still be in the neighborhood! Oh yes the local streets are a bit
of a hazard. Lubbock has earned a #10 spot on the Nation’s Worse Drivers list.
It just keeps you on your toes while driving – never know when someone will change lanes,
cut across lanes, slow down or stop – all without warning.

loves getting her hands dirty in her gardens. She is the webmaster for our 5 websites.
Great joy comes from both activities. She teaches one of the adult Bible classes at
church. Participants range in age from early 60’s to mid-90’s. What a joy to be
with them each Sunday morning.
The websites continue to be our main source of income.
