This morning I went first to Discount Tires to have the air pressure checked. The service tech had trouble with the right rear inner tire because the stem extension had been torn, leaving only the metal part attached to the stem. He told me that, since they had installed those tires, they would reimburse me for the cost of a new extension.
Then I headed to Stonewall to meet my Cen-Tex friends. We had several visitors: Don Rusher of Mineral Wells, sisters Anita Talbot and Jennifer Swan, and former members Jo Evans and Nancy Riley. It was good to have them all.
Tonight we had an excellent potluck dinner, as usual.
Today several of us went to the Wildseed Farm for lunch. The food is good and there are many garden and decorative items to tempt shoppers. Val and I bought a sparkly silver cap for Betty Wendler for her birthday. She had mentioned earlier in the day that she had every color of cap except gray. I thought that silver would be a good substitute for gray. She liked it.
At our business meeting this afternoon, we learned that the RV park does not want us to have another rally here at this time of year because most of the winter Texans are still there. We decided that we would not return at any other time of the year because we already have reservations elsewhere. We make our plans a year in advance so we can publish the schedule on our national Web site campout calendar.
Tonight we had dinner in Fredericksburg at Catfish Haven. I really enjoyed my blackened catfish dinner and brought home enough for another meal.
During the night last night a cold front blew in and it was still uncomfortable today, so we didn’t do much outdoors. When the weather is nicer we like to sit in the rocking chairs on the large porch.
