Feb 17, 2012 - A Return to Fredericksburg TX

We made a quick visit to Fredericksburg 2 years ago in our travels but did not spend a lot of time seeing the area. We started our exploring with a trip to the Admiral Nimitz Museum and the National Museum of the Pacific War. The Pacific War Museum was huge and you could have spent a full day just going through that part. We probably saw about half of it before we were tired of walking and reading. It was very well done and had lots of detail in words, pictures and videos. Ed would like to go back again and see the whole thing as he has...

Feb 9, 2012 - Fredericksburg, TX

West Texas doesn't have much scenery except cacti and then of course there are the oil wells. I still like seeing them dot the skyline and see if they are working or not. Too many to count here though. We then hit the hill country of Texas and immediately we saw green and trees although this part of Texas is really in a desperate drought. What impressed us here is the beautiful fences and gates that must mark entrances to ranches. Some are very ornate. We arrived in Fredericksburg early afternoon and checked in at Fredericksburg RV Park and...

Nov 20, 2011 - Texas Hill Country

On the 17th, we left Andrews and headed to Fredericksburg, TX, for a Rotary RV Fellowship rally. We drove through San Angelo, where we spent our first four years of marriage, and continued merrily on our way, enjoying ourselves. As we came into the little town of Menard, we heard an awful noise -sounded as though the transmission had fallen out. These things always happen when I'm driving. I drove into the parking lot of an abandoned building and Clark got out to see what in the world could be making such an awful racket. He immediately...

Nov 7, 2011 - Museum Of The Pacific War

Guess all the pills worked because Owen was feeling better today. I had planned to do a couple of things while he was here but he needed his rest more than anything yesterday. This morning , when I saw that he was more himself, I suggested lunch out and a trip to one of the best museums I have ever been to - The Museum of the Pacific War. Fredericksburg is a small cute town and after walking down the main street we stopped at the brewery and had a very tasty lunch. Now that we were fortified for hours of standing and reading we headed to...

May 3, 2011 - FSH - LBJ National Historic Site and Fredericksburg for Lunch

Love being back at Fort Sam Houston RV Park. The park is beautifully located on post as well as within the heart of San Antonio with large sites affording some privacy from others. This is also our medical wrap-up “tour” to get the last of the blood work and examination results. We both have received resounding A+’s; I no longer have to take any meds at all and Jerry will continue to take his one preventative med for gout – yahoo! Naturally we were both VERY pleased. One of the many pleasurable and fun things about this lifestyle is...

April 8 2011 Fredericksburg Texas Nancy and I have been to Fredericksburg Texas several times, but it has been a few years since we walked the streets. In the past we have visited the Nimitz Museum and the Rockbox Theater but today was window shopping and a good german lunch. Fredericksburg is located in the Texas Hill Country, 80 miles west of Austin and about 70 miles north of San Antonio. It is a very small community with a lot of tourist type stores, which include winery’s, wine shops, antique stores along with general merchandise....

Mar 15, 2011 - Nimitz Pacific War Museum

Nancy and I last visited the Nimitz Pacific War Museum about 4 years ago. It was being remodeled and many of the things we saw today were not there at that time. About 2 years ago they finished remodeling and had a grand re-opening. I was in Ohio at that time, but we did make contact with the Amateur Radio Station that was set up to celebrate the opening. We talked for a long time and it turns out the operator at the Museum was a old Navy guy. It was a Sunny day here in Texas so we got up and thought this would be a great time to revisit...

Feb 15, 2011 - Fredericksburg, TX

Arrived in Fredericksburg, Texas on Saturday after a 4-1/2 hour drive from Ft. Stockton. Fredericksburg was founded in 1846 by German settlers & retains a distinctively German feel. At the turn of the century it was a long trip into Fredericksburg for many farm families, so they often built tiny "Sunday houses" in town for use between Saturday shopping & church. The historic buildings are a sight to see. We visited the National Museum of the Pacific War - we only got through a small portion of it - it is hugh - but very interesting....

Dec 31, 2010 - The Little Bull Fighter

We arrived late afternoon Wednesday here in Fredericksburg, TX. There are several proprietary Recreation Vehicle parks in and near the city, but we've chosen a municipal park, Lady Bird Johnson Park. The city doesn't have to make profit for shareholders and has only to pay the park's expenses, so the rate here is about 20% below the other parks; for $25/night we're provided water, electricity, sewer, and 77 channels of cable TV. The city is quite proud of its relationship with Lady Bird and her love of the wildflowers of Texas Hill...

Dec 12, 2010 - Loss of a neighbor

It is with deep regret that I tell those of you that don't already know about the death of one of our neighbors.. Tony Saeli lost his fight for life this morning at 2:00 A.M. All of us that knew him will miss him terribly. When we returned to Town Park this fall Tony told us that he would be gone by Christmas.. Seems that Tony already knew what God had in store for him. Our prayers go out to Diane and the family and we will do everything we can to help her through this sad time... Cards/ memorials can be sent to Diane at: Diane Saeli 3110...

Dec 6, 2010 - LBJ Ranch

We took a ride over to LBJ's Ranch today. This was a lot of fun as the Ranch was hugh and Buck had all sorts of animals to check out on the drive to the ranch house. When we arrived at the ranch house, we found LBJ's plane sitting outside. He called his Air Force One & a Half as it was a smaller jet. There was a great information room that had all sorts of pictures and cars and so forth to check out. There was on picture of LBJ howling with his dog and, if you knew my wife and dog Buck, you would know we have a picture just like it. LBJ...
