Ed & Marilyn 'The Happy Wanderers' travel blog

Happy New Year to all of you Dear Readers.

Here in southern Texas, the celebration of the New Year is accompanied by Fireworks! Just like the 4th of July back in Missouri!

Marilyn stayed up to welcome the New Year but I went to bed to read a fine Western Novel from my Kindle. The gunfight parts had real sound effects coming from around the area.

I was sound asleep when the new year arrived and Marilyn asked me this morning, how I could sleep through all the Booms and Bangs of the fireworks.

I assured her that it was no problem for me. Once in New Orleans, during Mardi Gras, I slept on the floor right behind a band playing Dixieland Jazz music. I think the last song I heard that night was “When the Saints Come Marching In”.

Of course I was much younger, single, and in the Military Service, so I could sleep anywhere.

I really like New Years Day! Peaceful and quiet! Just relaxing in my recliner with the TV showing Parades and Football!

Mainly Football! Marilyn doesn’t care that much about it but she indulges my passion for College Bowl Games at this time of year.

She sure is sweet, and so good to me. LOL

We have a busy week ahead of us.

I have business to take care of tomorrow, on the phone of course.

Friday, our friends, Bob & Janet will arrive at Bentsen Palms Village and we will gather at Mike & Marian’s house for a “Welcome Back” dinner.

Saturday, we are taking Ron & Verna to Mexico. Sunday we will join a group of friends for a carry-in dinner across the street.

Monday evening we will watch the National Championship Football game on TV.

On Friday we will spend the night in Houston with the Misfits, as we enjoy a Bon Voyage Party together. Then on Saturday we’ll board the ship for a seven day cruise.

When we return, we will get ready to greet friends Heinz & Irene, who will arrive here at Llano Grande on the 19th. They will be a few spaces away from us but parked right next door to Ron & Verna.

January will be gone before you know it. Then we’ll have only one short month remaining here at Llano Grande before we move north to Kerrville, Texas for the month of March.

I am getting ahead of myself there, because we still have so much fun remaining here.

I’ll relate that as it happens for you dear readers.

For now I will simply remind you that Life is Good!
