We just got home from New Mexico, so this is a few days late. Hope all had a nice 4th of July, however you spent it. We were driving all day!
Carolyn Forsland had her 99th birthday on Monday, the 3rd, and she enjoyed the celebration very much. However, the next day, her family called her to inform her about the plans that have been made for her. On July 17, she will fly to Idaho with her niece, Kathy, and live there in Meridian, Idaho. Carolyn came to Redbud in January 2009, so she has been here 8 1/2 years. After Carolyn leaves, we will be down to 9 residents, our lowest total in quite a while.
Anna Conners and Judy Williams made the trip to New Mexico just fine, and enjoyed the Spanish special meeting on Sunday in Albuquerque. Now they are on the Mountainair convention grounds for the conventions this week and next week.
While we were in New Mexico, they got a big rain here at Redbud, and overflowed our pond again. We were glad for the rain, as June had been dry. There will be a baptism this Sunday afternoon here in our pond, we look forward to that.
After July 17, this is how our resident list will look: Joy Widel, Alfred Broady, Ron Johnson, Mary Olsen, Anna Conners, Judy Williams, Charlotte Johnson, Imal Hartsock, and Irene Harrison.
Charlotte Johnson does very well, and enjoys working in our small raised garden. Alfred Broady spends quite a bit of time driving around the property on the golf cart and poisoning golphers who make mounds of dirt. Ron Johnson works hard to "keep moving" and walks a lot every day. Joy Widel keeps busy with her correspondence and her sewing machine. Imal Hartsock keeps everyone and everything straightened up and in order. Anna Conners and Judy Williams are still adjusting to their move from building "B" into the main building. They are still close neighbors, just across the hall from each other. Mary Olsen drinks a lot of coffee and takes a lot of naps. It doesn't seem like those 2 would be compatible, but she has accomplished it very well.
Irene Harrison still faces the same weakness and pain issues, but still is a tremendous help to those who have technology problems. I expect she helps in other areas also.
I hope you have a good July, and I hope to see you right here again around the first of August. "Come see us"!!
Glenn and Shirley Spunaugle, Dan Kaler, Roy Maras, and all the employees, and residents at Redbud Canyon.
