Apr 23, 2010 - Wow.. Who woulda' known?

town, stopping at Walmart for some Velcro to finish a project I had been working on.. One thing that many of us RV’ers really dislike is having to keep the front door closed either when the A/C is on or when it is cold and the heat is running. It makes everything so dark inside. Lots of our friends have cut down plexiglass to fit inside but I wanted to do something different… I decided to use vinyl and valcro it on the door so we could remove it when we wanted fresh air. After some trial and error, I found some cute little vinyl that had...

Apr 22, 2010 - Stay at home kind of day

We were really looking forward to seeing more of the Texas Hill Country today but I never even left the house ( Bill went out for some fresh air but I only opened the door and breathed in)… It wasn’t the most perfect weather day anyway and Bill had a beastly headache so we decided it was a good day for me to get caught up on the things that I have been putting off for way too long. While I was doing 7 loads of laundry I was also finishing my updates to my new computer… The best time I had was when I transferred my music from the I pod and...

Apr 21, 2010 - More sight-seeing

I finally have my new computer up and running again. Remember a while back when I had the window open and company coming for dinner? The rain came in and landed right on my keyboard and I was having too much fun to notice it. Well I was able to use it for quite awhile by adding an external keyboard but lately I was getting a lot of extra things added as I typed. I was warned about this when everything got all wet because eventually the water sitting on the bottom starts rusting whatever is inside the laptop. When the odd things started...

Apr 20, 2010 - Fredericksburg

Hello again, We have moved to Fredericksburg for a week before heading to Dallas. We are at the peak season of the Texas Wildflowers and they are incredidable. I bought a new computer and do not have everything uploaded yet so I will just put some awesome pictures up that we have seen in our outings the last two days. Fredericksburg is very crowded at this time of the year and you will see why when you look at teh pictures but in spite of all the people, we managed to run into the Wagon Masters from our MOC rally in Kerrville last month....

Apr 17, 2010 - Hill Country of Texas

Vacation 2010-2 April 14, 2010 It is cloudy today as we begin to head west toward the Hill Country. After stopping at Flying J at San Antonio, TX we began to get into some rolling hills which is the beginning of the Texas Hill Country. As we motored along we saw not only cattle but also sheep and goat herds along the road. We arrived at Oakwood RV Resort. It is old but well kept. The sights are narrow as when one puts out a slide it hangs about a foot over into the next sites patio. Just as we got settled in it started to rain. April...

Apr 10, 2010 - Fredericksburg TX and Wildflowers

Friday Ed had a couple of conference calls so we got a late start to Fredericksburg, about 30 miles west of Johnson City. We had planned to stay there, but all the RV Parks were full. This is Bluebonnet time of the year as well as other wildflowers. Johnson City was as close as we could stay. Fredericksburg was a German settlement and is quite a downtown shopping area, about 3 blocks of Main Street. We spent a couple of hours looking a local shops before going to Wildseed Farms. Wildseed Farms is a very colorful place! As the name...

Apr 10, 2010 - ENCHANTED ROCK

While in a shop on Frederickersburg, a shop owner suggested we drive about 20 miles north of Fredericksburg to Enchanted Rock National Park. So Saturday morning that's just what we did. And boy, were we glad we took her suggestion. A beautiful area! Enchanted Rock State Natural Area consists of 1643.5 acres on Big Sandy Creek, north of Fredericksburg, on the border between Gillespie and Llano Counties. It was acquired by warranty deed in 1978 by the Nature Conservancy of Texas, Inc., from the Moss family. The state acquired it in 1984,...

Apr 9, 2010 - Another Enchanting Day in Central Texas

Today Cousin Lullene Knox from the Huntsville area came by to get me. She had arrived yesterday too late to get together then. We went to Fredericksburg, arriving in time for lunch with other cousins, Dick and Maxie Hoester and their son, Rick. We met them at Dick and Rick's law office and we all rode together in their car to the Peach Tree Restaurant. We had a very nice visit. Lullene and Maxie are first cousins and I am a distant fourth cousin to them. More important to me than the fact that we all are twigs on the same big family tree...

Apr 8, 2010 - (Willie Nelson) "ON THE ROAD AGAIN" & NIMITZ MUSEUM

Writing from Oakwood RV Resort, Fredericksburg, TX Well, Wednesday was a bitter/sweet morning leaving our great friends from the Valley. Plenty of hugs and tears to go around. But our line is "Good Lord willin' and creek don't rise" we'll all be back next season! Goodbye dear friends, we already miss you. We drove north most of the day and got to Fredericksburg around 4:00. Great area. We're in the "Texas Hill Country". The wild flowers blooming are unbelievable! Our friends Bob & Barb (Nebraska) suggested we take a scenic route and they...

Apr 7, 2010 - Herb Farm and Luckenbach, TX

Today is our last day in Fredericksburg and we have had a wonderful time here. We had a long list of things to see and do and I think we accomplished most of them. The Park we stayed in was great too. We especially enjoyed meeting new friends and we hope to see them again somewhere down the road. It was in the low 40's when we woke up this morning but the forecasters promised mid-70's by afternoon and we decided to make our first adventure, a trip to the Fredericksburg Herb Farm. It was a fascinating place with herb gardens, a gift shop and...

Apr 6, 2010 - Wildseed Farm and LBJ Ranch

We woke up this morning to a beautiful day. The temps didn't get below 65 all night and it promised to be a warm, sunny day. This was the kind of day we thought would be perfect for the Wildseed Farm and the LBJ Ranch tour. First things first, we showered, had breakfast and took Heidi for a nice long walk in anticipation of her spending a long day in the RV. We left the RV Park around 9:30 and drove the short distance to the Wildseed Farm. They claim to be the largest working wildflower farm in the nation and they have acres of wildflowers...

Apr 5, 2010 - Nimitz Museum

It was misting rain this morning when we woke up. It looked as though it would be short-lived, however, and we hoped it would clear up a little later. After showers and breakfast, we went downtown to tour the Nimitz Museum. It is a huge complex and it is all about the Pacific War (World War II). Each room had memorabilia beginning with the seeds of conflict before the war, the shock of Pearl Harbor, all the major battlefields and, of course, the Victory. Some of the rooms had actual Jeeps and small planes that were used in the war. One...
