02.02.2012 Lunch with Mike Richardson & boys

We had the pleasure of meeting some of our missionary friends for lunch on 2/2. Mike Richardson and three of his boys: Samuel, Isaac, and Joshua had come to McAllen to deliver some Spanish materials for our homeschool convention in Pennsylvania.

When we arrived back at our place, we discovered someone from the weekly jam session had apparently turned around in our driveway and ran off the concrete smashing a solar light into the ground, running over one of our irrigation sprindlers breaking the underground pipe and cracking the new protection donut that that surrounds the sprinkler and tore up our lawn as they sped away. As soon as we got out of the car, we saw the damage and our neighbors converge on us. They hadn't seen the culprit but they saw the damage. They all came to our rescue. Two of them brought spare parts they had on hand and all helped Doug make the repairs to the irrigation and to clean the glass up from the solar light. The next day, Barb, our one neighbor gave us some sod to fill the tire track and patch the grass. Voila! you can hardly tell we had a problem!
