Grandmom congratulations go out to Carrie Agar of McAllen, whose daughter and son-in-law, Lynn & Jay Cummins of Raleigh, North Carolina, became the proud parents of a baby daughter named Caroline Reed Cummins on March 3, 2009. According to the unbiased grandma, little Reed is blonde, blue-eyed, and beautiful!
Saw Kathe Tavarez, Bertha Hinojosa, Charlene Hertz, Sandra Imhoof, Patti Mayers, and Alice Tavarez among the ladies at the March Pan American Round Table meeting. Also saw Kay Moffitt, who was back from her and Jim’s recent adventurous trip to Antarctica. Brrrr . . .
Had a nice chat with Dago Rivera, Food & Beverage Director of the Club at Cimarron, about the fun of upcoming events, receptions in airplane hangars and so forth. Learned that some of Cimarron’s good tennis players include Cindy Cueva, Gilda Bowen, Ricky Wooten, and Ralph Alhalel . . .
Also learned that the Club at Cimarron has complimentary golf clinics for beginners going on in March. I presume the classes are for club members, but check with PGA Will Borowski at 581-7408, ext. 217, for times and exact info. You may also e-mail at email@example.com . . .
Heard that Dan Nelson and Lelo Muñiz were playing in the championship finals of the “Life Begins at 40” golf tournament last Friday in Harlingen, but don’t know who won as of this writing. Good luck to both, and congratulations for playing in the finals . . .
Had a fun, colorful visit with Steve Dershem, Dora Salinas, Eloy Treviño, and the professionals at Illusions. Did not have fun on other business involving lots of phone calls, press 8 for a customer service representative who will not be able to help you, etc., etc. Must give up frustration . . .
Read a clear explanation of fasting, or “giving up” something during Lent, by the Rev. Philip Cunningham, assistant rector at St. John’s Episcopal. I added something to my life, instead of giving up something, but whichever you do, it should help you “focus on that which is most important.” For instance, giving up golf if you’re not happy with your game anyway, might not fit the bill . . .
My daughter met fellow provisional member Myra Gonzalez, who teaches second grade in Edinburg, at the Junior League’s Children’s Arts & Literacy festival at the International Museum of Art & Science. The festival was a huge success this year, with over 2,500 attending . . .
Don’t forget to do your “wearing of the green” next Tuesday, because we’re all Irish on St. Patrick’s Day! And members of my book club, the Literary Luncheon League (don’t kid yourself — we are very literary!) need to remember to wear green to the party!
Some of the birthday folks celebrating yesterday included Michelle Toyloy, Elda Sinder, Laurie Mohel, and Merrick Flores. For today, happy birthday wishes go to Sandra Carraras and Carol Dearth. And for tomorrow, happy birthday to the glamorous Dora Salinas of Illusions, and to Parker Nelson . . .
Hope you changed your clock last Sunday, since we’re now back on daylight savings time. Or have you been feeling out of sync the last few days?
