2 Rallies in Victoria

We attended the Demontrond Rally  in Victoria and it was followed by the WWW Rally.  We spend a week at the Victoria KOA.  We had a great time.  Here are a few pics!

Looks like these three are up to no good!  Oh My, two against one!  Are they ganging up on her?!

We all headed out to the pool area.  We are having an ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.  Mark, President, said he would do it if $100 were raised.  Well, $200 were raised so he said he would volunteer our Vice President, Sharon.  We gathered on this really cool morning!!

I am sorry but I could not download my video.  Will keep trying! 

Mark jumped in the pool to warm up after the ice water.    Good cause but they are gutsy, too.

We headed home on Wednesday.  Manuel had some sick days while we were in Victoria but we made the best of our outing. 

Until next time!

Brother in Branson, Missouri

My brother, Jesse Aleman is very active with Veteran Functions and holds the annual Driscoll Veterans Event.  He does a great job with this every year.  Driscoll has a Korean War Killed in Action Soldier (Leonel Aleman) and a Vietnam Missing In Action Soldier (Richard Garcia) and they are honored yearly. 

The 281st Assault Helicopter Company had their reunion in Branson Missouri a couple of weeks ago and they invited him to be their Guest Speaker.  What an honor! 

Richard Garcia, who is honored yearly in Driscoll, was part of the 281st Assault Helicopter Company when he went missing in Vietnam.  My Brother, Jesse has invited the 281st Assault Helicopter Company to the Driscoll Event and they have attended several years.  We had the privilege of meeting several of these soldiers and their spouses and what a pleasure that was.  We are so thankful to all our Veterans!

Jury Duty

I was summoned to jury duty so I headed to Downtown San Antonio.  I knew this would be a day of sitting around and waiting.  There were at least 1000 people summoned on this day!  By 9 am they had picked groups of 75 and I was in the third group called on.  We were taken upstairs to a jury room and waited there another 2 hours then released for a 30 minute lunch break. 

There was a lot of activity going in to the jury room and also coming out while we waited.  Finally, the Judge calls us in and in the presence of two attorneys, we are told what has been going on while we waited.  The lawyers have been negotiating and finally they decide to settle out of court.  Wow! 

We were thanked for our service, given a certificate for being present and told we would receive a $6 check in the mail.

We were released and I headed home.  What a Day!  I should not be called again for another 3 years. 

This is the new addition to the courthouse.    The historical courthouse is the red building on the left with a green roof.

Labor Day Weekend

Mary Boggs and Jesse Soto called us and said they would be in New Braunfels, River Road, for the weekend.  We made a trip there on Saturday for a visit with them.  Manuel Jr. and the Girls went with us.  They enjoyed being in the river.  It was a hot day so the cool water was good.
