Well, we saved our big blue Eucalyptus and it has been trimmed. It looks so different, very austere, but should be safer and prolong it’s life. We watched them trimming it and cringed with each cut. No more shade for awhile and the birds that used it for roosting have gone elsewhere; hopefully they will come back!

We are continuing to play Pickleball and help with fundraising to get lights for our new courts (being built as we speak). Many more people are joining us and our one court keeps busy. It seems that anyone that tries it, falls in love with the fun.
Both Jim and Cheryl did the ALS Ice-bucket Challenge. We took the dousing and contributed to the cause. It was cold, but only temporarily. The ice-water chill is supposedly somewhat like the “feeling” that a person with ALS feels all the time. We hope that all the money raised will go toward research and/or treatment. We have since seen charts that show that ALSA spends too big a percentage on other, such as administrative costs, publicity, etc.
