Jul 16, 2014 - Borger, TX

Our visit to Borger was for a trip down memory lane where Ves grew up. We saw the high school he attended. In January, 1956, Pat moved to Borger with $5 in her pocket. She lived with her aunt and uncle. She landed a job at Barney's Pharmacy as a soda jerk. Ves came into Barney's one day with his buddy Andy for a Dr. Pepper float. That is how they met. If your like me, your thinking Mayberry RFD with Barney and Andy and all. Pat must have charmed Ves, cause he kept coming back. They fell in love and married at the Baptist Church. We visited...

2014-2016 Travels

May 22, 2012 - Off to Alibates National Monument

Today we met our friends, Lucy and Eric, at Alibates National Monument. It turned out too hot to do a tour there, but we enjoyed the visitors center and the ranger's knowledge. It is a lovely area and worth a visit (hoping for cool weather to get out and walk the hills looking for the quarries). Then we headed to New Mexico, Tucumcari, to camp at the KOA. It was quite windy but otherwise nice weather for camping and the area is beautiful.

Apr 7, 2011 - Texas and Back to Oklahoma

I surely hated to leave our little piece of heaven Wednesday morning. I so easily could have sat in my lawn chair and sipped my coffee by the lake all morning long. The sky was blue, with a slight breeze, and just a pair of Canada geese to keep us company. That’s getting pretty close to perfect. Our drive Wednesday was uneventful. We drove south to pick up I-40 again. We were only a few miles from the Texas state line so the plan was to pull into the Welcome Center and load up on maps and brochures. It was not to be as this was another rest...

May 6, 2008 - Borger, TX - Amarillo Livestock Auction

(Ron Writing) This morning we drove a mile or two north of Sam’s Club to the Amarillo Livestock Auction. Ever since the white folks moved into Texas, cattle ranching has played a major roll in the economy here. Amarillo has long been an important center for buying, selling, and shipping cattle. The Amarillo Livestock Auction is the largest consignment auction in the country. They have an auction every Tuesday. Today they sold about 800 head during a non-stop auction that lasted over 3 hours. This was the first time either of us had ever...

Oct 3, 2006 - Amarillo, Texas

About and hour beforeTuesday, October 3, we drove west on I-40 toward Amarillo, Texas. About an hour East of Amarillo there was a rest area that had some interesting views. The above pictures are from that rest area. It was again a windy day but we arrived at the Overnight RV Park about 4:00 pm. We are getting into the scrubby type of landscape. There are very few tall trees, most of them are the short, bushy type. There is not much grass because most of the dirt is very sandy and rocky. Heading for Tucumcari, New Mexico tomorrow
