Ed & Marilyn 'The Happy Wanderers' travel blog

We managed to get quite a few things done today.

Heinz followed me to the Ford dealership where I left Marilyn’s car for the warranty work. Heinz & I chatted on the way back to the resort. I always enjoy the company of this good friend.

I received a call from the installer for blinds, etc, at Lowes, and he promised to arrive at our site around 1:00 today. He will measure for the two new Levolor blinds we want installed in the bedroom.

After that, we hope to have them installed before we leave here on March 1st.

Not much time left before we get on the road again.

A six to seven hour drive to Kerrville and we’ll be all set for the month of March, before we head northeast again.

We plan to arrive in Hannibal, MO, around April 9th or 10th.

Marilyn & I worked together to make a skillet full of “stoup”, which is my word for a combination of soup & stew.

We enjoyed some of that for lunch and it was quite tasty!

We also made a plan for next winter, although the plan is not complete yet.

At this time our plan is to return to the Rio Grande Valley, where we will stay until March 1st once again.

On that date, we will move north to Mustang Island, next to Port Aransas, where we have a reservation at Gulf Waters RV Resort.

After spending the month of March, 2015, at Gulf Waters Resort, we’ll once again head north to Missouri.

I put the new stickers from South Dakota on the license plates for the truck and the RV. Then I walked across the street to visit with Heinz, as he sat outdoors grilling some chicken. The smoke from his grill smelled really good!

Shortly after 1:00 PM, the installer arrived and we recognized him as the same person who did such a nice job for us in the past.

His name is Oscar and he remembered us as well. We look forward to having him return to install the blinds when they come in.

Heinz & Irene, and Ron & Verna, walked over for Happy Hour and we had a great visit as we sat in the bright sunshine, enjoying the day.

The cool breeze seemed cooler once the sun began sinking behind the palm trees and we all headed for the warm comfort of our RV’s.

Now we are settled down for the night.

We have an adventure planned for tomorrow.

Life is Good!
