First of all, yesterday afternoon, out of the blue, the Vonage phone rang. I knew it was a call from the USA, but had no idea it would be such an important call. The Vonage phone is great because whoever calls can leave a verbal message which pops up on your computer. The message was from the mail service who I
have been in contact with many, many times since August 24th.
That was the fateful day that I took the precious package to them to send UPS to my grandson for his 18th birthday on September 4th.
The woman was calling to let me know that she was in Laredo and the package had been found. Did I still want them to send it to my grandson? Of course. Most important though was to make sure that the correct
information was on the package as it had been a long time since I had handed it over and no telling the shape of the label or anything else. We finished that business of reconfirming the destination. Hopefully UPS has
picked it up this morning and the package will be at his home by the weekend. Oh, I so hope.
I am thrilled that it was found. That they called and that I can now know my grandson will be able to see all
the photos of he and his Mom when he was first born and throughout his life to now. Christopher was 5 1/2 when his Mom, my daughter Jennifer, passed on. So, that explains why the package is so, so precious.
On another note! Last Friday morning, the day after the earth was scraped clean of wildflowers and debris, including the motorcycle shops complete inventory, there was a big ceremony right outside my house. Literally. I could have watched the whole thing from the dining room window, but instead participation was
the name of the game. I sat among my neighbors to hear what is happening.
It appears that the land that has been the walking path has been donated by the person or persons who owned it and it will become a plaza for the neighborhood. The plaza will be where the motorcycle shop had their stuff and the part of the area will be set aside closest to the edge of the canyon for enjoying the view.
The architect, city official, heads of the colonia and who knows who else were all here for this big announcement.
Here are a few photos.
as ecstatic as me.
I'll keep you posted on how a scorched earth area becomes a place of beauty. Stay tuned.
