We left in the wee hours of the morning in Tampa, Florida on July 27th to make our way across the United States to our new home in Richland, WA. The area is also known as Tri-Cities because it is made up of Richland, Kennewick, and Pasco cities. This is where Artie will be working as a Recruiter for the Army.

What a busy time the four of us have had over the last two days. Taking absolute full advantage of my two days off, Cheryl, Artie, Heidi and I did it all. We were tourists on Wednesday, riding the light rail into town and showing Artie Seattle. On Thursday, we all were workers as we dug into the Rhodie garden and moved plants.

Senior Citizen 08/07/09
By Susie Devries
July 14, I joined the Patrick Henry Hays Senior Citizen Center here in North Little Rock. It is a brand new place, very nice, and close, only about 4 1/2 miles from me. It's been open since '05 I think, I'm not sure. I thought you had to be 62 at least to join, come to find out you only had to be 50!! I said well, shoot, I'm nearly 60 so I guess I can join and did.
