It's Christmas Time at the Dillo...
FROM THE GOLF CART
No husband has ever been shot while doing the dishes
Once again, Mother Nature is being mean to us. How I miss the summer. Don't forget our annual Christmas party this Saturday at 8PM. It's always a blast. Bring a wrapped present (15-20 dollar range) and join the fun.
Please don't forget Pearl Harbor day on the seventh. Wouldn't hurt to say a rememberance prayer for those who lost their lives, and their families. There are less of the survivors of that day every year. God bless them all. Our flags will fly at half mast that day, and I would encourage all to do that.
On a side note, Teresa and I are welcoming our 2nd Great grandbaby (Lord, we can't be that old). Little Waylon Clark came into this life while we were sleeping. Mother and baby are doing fine, father is expected to recover.
Till next time,
FROM THE CRUISE DECK
A really fun weekend coming up! Starting at 1pm, we’ll have the Indoor Nerf Dodgeball tournaments in the barn. Teams of 4, picked at random, it is a new game that could really catch on! When we meet in the barn at 1, everyone will pick a number from a hat, and the games will begin. Since it is an elimination game, there are no scores. We’ll be using 4 small nerf balls, so getting hit is painless! Getting a direct hit anywhere on your body with the ball puts you out UNLESS the ball is caught by anyone on your team. Then the thrower is out. Best 2 out of 3 rounds decide the winning team. If we have enough teams playing, we can play other teams between rounds, thus rest time. We’ll have two referees judging. Taped lines will be drawn for “no cross line” for the opponents. At the end of all rounds, the winning team receives liquor, bracelets, and the honor of champions!
That evening is also our world famous Christmas Party and gift exchange starting at 8PM. Groucho and Bill will have more details on that. Followed by the dance. Hope to see all there!!
Lots of fun things coming up! We love seeing so many people participating in these. Mark these dates down on your calendar, and always check the Armadillo Newsletter. Prizes (and most importantly) CHAMPION bracelets are awarded to all winners…

Please check on your pipes for the winter season. Make sure they are properly covered/insulated. It's not fun to repar lines in cold weather that were not properly cared for.
Please make sure you occasionally perform "proactive maintenance" on your sewer line. Using a periodic box of RID or Drain-O might help. Also, dissolvable toilet tissue could prevent blockages and the need to dig up sewerlines to flush them.
There is a small section of fence that blew down near Cabin 3. It would be helpful if I could have a volunteer or two to help me put that back up. Please call (817) 901-5637 if you can help. It should take about an hour or less.
FROM ANYWHERE BUT THE OFFICE
The Office Blog will be "direct" and "to the point" That's easier for me. So here it goes...
