Azalea Bloom-2-blogLate Bloomer (Azalea) — Photo-Artistry by kenne

In early spring the south and gulf coast are abound with azalea blossoms. When we moved to the Arizona desert from the gulf coast, we brought along a potted azalea plant. Each spring our little plant had many blossoms. However this spring there were no blossoms. But much to our surprise in September one blossom emerged. — kenne

The First of Several Planned Gathering In Houston   Leave a comment

Dinner at Lupe Tortilla's in The Wooodlands blog IIKatelyn Turner, Janie Turner, Joy Otrey, Kenne D. Turner, Mary Ann Turner-McCloud, Buddy McCloud, Katie Turner-Bailey and Kenne G. Turner (Lupe Tortilla’s in The Woodlands, Texas, July 27, 2018) — Image by waiter, Saul

We have been planning Joy’s 70th birthday for several months. We knew Kate and her Family who now lives in New Hampshire would not be able to make it to the beach house gathering in Galveston this weekend. We also knew that Katelyn, Janie and Kenne D. would be camping in Central Texas.

Then, a couple of weeks ago we learned Kate would be attending a conference in Houston this week, so plans were quickly made to have dinner on the 27th — Kate was very pleased. We arrived in Houston at 3:30 pm with plenty of time for dinner at 6:30 pm in The Woodlands.

Tomorrow we leave for the Galveston beach house.

The fog comes on little cat feet. It sits looking over harbor and city on silent haunches and then moves on.

BMW Family   3 comments

In December of 1983, I purchased our first BMW, a 318i coupe, which we had for twenty-five years.

In December 2005 we bought our 328i coupe, which we still have in our garage.

This past Friday Joy replaced her 2004 Infiniti FX35 and with a 2018 BMW X1. This makes the fourth BMW in our family since 1983. (We had a 1995 M3 for four years in the mid-1990’s.)

The purchase price for the X1 included a “loyalty” discount, which by buying the new SUV through Costco combined to make for a real deal on the X1. As a result, the price for the X1 was about the same as what we paid for the FX35 in 2003 — not bad! 

We will miss our Infiniti FX35, which had over 180,000 hard-working, loving miles.
