After graduat- ing from high school he later enlisted in the military and while stationed in Valdosta, Ga., he met and mar- tied Mary (Madelon) Cowart on Dec. 18, 1957. They had three children (Valerie, Lloyd Jr. and Zachary). After Zachary was born, he moved his family to Austin, Texas in 1967. Lloyd's career was very unique in that he served in three branches of the U.S. armed ser- vices. He joined the "proud and the few" as a Marine, he explored the depths of the world's oceans in the submarine service and compiled a distinguished set of tours of duty in the United States Air Force. Af- ter retiring from the USAF (at the rank of Major), Lloyd would often reflect back on the days when he could fly some of the military's most awesome machines and he shared some incredible stories about his service while stationed in Korea. He had many other accomplishments in his life. He was very proud to have graduated from Florida St. University. He also start- ed his own photography studio called "The Studio" where he specialized in por- trait photography and weddings. He then worked for the Chevron corporation and finally retired to his country home (Twist- ed Oaks) in Dripping Springs, Texas with his wife Madelon. Lloyd enjoyed reading, playing golf and was a history buff, but flying airplanes, photography and gazing over their hill country view with his be- loved wife of almost 52 years was what he loved most. He was a great man to know and he worked hard at everything, espe- cially providing for his family. Beloved husband, father and grandfather, you will be in our hearts always and forever. WE LOVE YOU. Preceded in death by: mother and father (Okley and Olie) and brother (Ray Kilo). Survived by: wife (Mary Mad- elon Kfle), brothers (Elmer and Eugene Kilo of Chattanooga), sisters (Ressa Sto- baugh of Jacksonville, FL & Rebecca Sue Hill of Chattanooga), children (daughter - Valerie & sons - Lloyd Jr. and Zachary - all of Austin), son-in-law (Lucian Dale Turk of Austin), daughter-in-law (Kris Kilo of Anchorage, Alaska), and grandchildren (Lucian Kilo Turk, Madison Kilo, Logan Kilo and Chance Kilo). Services will be held in a private setting at "Twisted Oaks" in Dripping Springs. ROBINSON Betty Robinson, 89, of Georgetown, formerly of Buda, died Sunday, October 10, 2010.

It's called the "Gulf Fritillary", but it's found across two-thirds of the United States and south- ward to Argentina. In reading about the spine- covered larvae, I learned that they will molt as they grow larger. The larva will be blond when it crawls out of its black exoskeleton, and it will eat the exoskeleton. Now, that's some- thing to watch for. It's time to have handy my Pentax Papillon 6.5 by 21 bin- oculars. They focus to 18-inch- es. In 2006 when they were new, I mentioned in "Montage" that I watch many a National Geographic show in real time. Flowers. Butterflies. Spi- ders. Tarantulas. Caterpillars. After its final molt, the Gulf Fritillary turns into a cocoon that looks like a dried leaf. Some plant their butterfly host plants in their butterfly garden behind their butter- fly nectar plantS, to hide the chewed plants. They're miss- ing out. These caterpillars are spectacular. And, the spines do not sting. They're soft. While watching the cat- erpillars with our daugh- ter, Tami (36), we caught a grasshopper for her tarantula, Charlotte, who stayed back in Arlington TX. Tami saves Charlotte's exoskeleton each time she molts. Each time, it's noticeably larger. ooo It's time to remove inoper- able vehicles and vehicles without current inspection stickers. Mayor Rick Tarr gave a heads up at last week's Nation- al Night Out at Beth & Everitt Smith's. Letters will go out soon to those in violation. Mayor Rick also asked that citizens keep their lawns mowed. Holly Cass: Your loud tidbit was heard! It was back this time in 2004 that we were seeing lots of rare-for-Texas Zebra Long- winged Butterflies. gee During Tami's recent visit she mentioned, 'Tk wren chat- toted incessantly at the owl house this morning." What good news! Surely it meant a Screech Owl inside. Sure enough, as I came close the 10-foot pole with my quiet Black & Decker electric mower (a Mountain City garage sale treasure) that afternoon, I looked up. There Owlfie sat on the ledge of the square open- ing. OwlShack is a trademark of Clifford Shackelford, who makes each house in his ga- rage in Nacogdoches with his wife, Julie.
