This morning I went to Discount Tires to have them check my tire pressure. They were a bit low so I had them fill all six tires to 80 PSI. I prefer a firm ride. I was on the road by 10:30 and then stopped in Johnson City for lunch. I arrived at Johnson Creek RV Resort around 2:15.
This morning several of us walked around to visit with some women with the Sisters on the Fly club (www.sistersonthefly.com). Nearly all of them have vintage travel trailers which they have restored and decorated very cleverly. Several of them invited us inside their trailers and let us take photographs. Many of them are married and just leave their “old men” at home – the way the men do when they go off somewhere with their buddies.
This afternoon Ruth, Nancy, Jeanette and I went to the Old Ingram Loop. First we had lunch at the River Café. Then we walked around the loop browsing most of the shops and galleries. The one that impressed me most was Tom Moss. He is an excellent sculptor and also a good painter and has won quite a few awards.
Tonight we had dinner at the Lake House in Kerrville. I enjoyed my grilled chicken dinner very much.
Today Ann, Jeanette, Annette and I went to Kerrville to run some errands. First, we stopped at the bank where Ann thought she had left her sunglasses, but the sunglasses were not there. Then we stopped at H-E-B, where Ann did some business. I bought three bottles of CoQ10; I had three coupons for $3.00 off each bottle. Every little bit saved helps the ol’ budget.
Then it was time for lunch. We ate at the Carrot Patch located inside the Kerrville Health Food store. The food was excellent.
This morning several of us attended a service in the chapel at the RV park. It was the last sermon to be preached here by the minister. He and his wife will spend the winter in far south Texas, where they will minister at a large RV park there. The chapel had just lost their musician and the man who led the singing asked if any of us could play. I told him that I am out of practice but willing to try if he could stand all my bobbles! We did five hymns, all of which were familiar to me, so it wasn’t so bad. The keyboard was a nice one which had been donated to the chapel. However, the sustain foot switch was missing. I used one of the organ voices, which don’t require the sustain switch. The service was over at 10:30.
