Nice to hear from all of you. I am still in Johnston, Iowa and living and gardening in the same location but currently in the process of building a strand alone condo (known as villas here) which is in Johnston as well.
I had a torn tenor in my ankle in spring 2013, wore a boot for 4 months with no heal followed by a permanent brace. 2014 had a Anthrodesis (triple fusion) and am left with the inability to care for my garden as I had in the past. I still work at the greenhouse in the spring as a container designer and plan to do so in 2016.
December 2012 we lost our youngest son which has been a difficult time adjusting. Don't remember if I ever shared we had lost our oldest son in 1969 but we do have a daughter who has blessed us with 2 beautiful granddaughters. The oldest just received her master's degree from Denver University Iliff and has her own grant writing business and the younger one is a kindredgarten teacher in the Des Moines system and working on her masters at Drake.
Has anyone heard from Jim?

Oh- and the Austin airport is such and easy airport to manage (My sister lives in Cedar Park, so quite familiar). Traffic to the airport from Austin can be lousy, but not sure about Bastrop since you would be coming in from the east side. I will say that the Austin area is nice. Looks like you are seeking someplace that is warm, based on you other locations??
