A Visit to Ruckman Haus

 

 


In mid-December, Guy Blair was going to be making a trip down to San Antonio from Green Bay to do something connected with his old parish, and so I planned to come down for a few days so that I could see him. Of course, it is always a pleasure to see Ron and Prudence, shown here at left in the dining room of their Bed and Breakfast- Ruckman Haus- and I wish that I could come down more often. I got a flight down to San Antonio on Tuesday morning and I was at Ruckman Haus by lunchtime. We ate lunch with Ron and Prudence, and then Guy had some errands to run and we did some Christmas shopping for Ron and Prudence while we were out.

We had dinner at Tomatillo's, if I recall correctly, which is one of Ron and Prudence's favorite restaurants, and, when we got back, I snapped what I thought was a good picture of Guy and Ron Ruckman in the Ruckman Haus dining room.


This was the first time I had been down to Ruckman Haus so close to Christmas, and I was very impressed with the way that the two of them had decorated the public areas of the house for the Christmas season. Obviously, a great deal of work went into selecting the decorations and, more than that, getting them put up. I hope you will take a look at each of the pictures I took of the various rooms by clicking on the thumbnails below. I think you will be as impressed as I was by the work the Ruckmans have done.

I also took what I think is a very good movie, touring through the downstairs area of Ruckman Haus and looking at the decorations. You can view that movie using the player at right.

I really enjoyed my visit with Prudence and Ron, as I always do, and it was good to see Guy again and hear more stories about his new church in Green Bay.
