Apr 10, 2018 - Happy Birthday Gwen!

Gwen chose to go to Gruene ( pronounced Green) for her birthday celebration. The Guadalupe River runs through the town so tubing down the rapids is a very popular thing to do but we were there for the shops and restaurants. Each of us bought something ( shoes for me!) before we went to the Gristmill for lunch. The last stop of the day was at the Gruene Hall - one of the oldest continuously operating dance halls in Texas. Gruene Hall has been instrumental in starting the careers of Lyle Lovett, George Strait and others. Bo Diddly, Garth...

Dec 23, 2014 - Historic Gruene Texas

Today was a cool windy day in Texas, but a good day to be out and about. Christmas is just 2 days away, and from past experience I know that there would be a lot of activity in the historic town of Gruene. I had lunch at the famous Mozie’s restaurant before I started my little tour. Hamburger with all the condiments and their famous french fries was the meal for today. I walked through several of the shops and just talk with the gals about life in general. You have to remember that in Texas everyone is Texas Friendly. Also I stopped by the...

Apr 4, 2014 - Greune, Texas

Today Janet and Dick Kirkman picked us up in their car and we went out for lunch and then out to do some sightseeing in Greune, Texas. We had the whole season at Winter Ranch and never got together but we met again at Potter's Creek Campground. We all like this campground and so stay whenever we get this direction. We also have a favorite Italian Restaurant in Canyon Lake. The Italian Garden isn't any spectacular place but the food is just wonderful. I had to have the Chicken Marsala and it is the best I've ever had. Janet had it too today....

day 32 was not good, while we went dancing, everything was fine until this lady who had too much to drink, couldn't dance  got on the dance floor was wildly moving about, unknown to us, she came from behind clipped bb's toe and torn off her toe nail AND because bb was wearing a shoe that exposed her big toe and not boots, we were dancing well away from everyone to avoid such a clip yet the lady seem to, for unknown reasons, come into our line of dance from the rear, had we seen her coming we would have stopped to let her pass, she never...

Apr 8, 2013 - Gruene, Texas with Dick & Janet

Yesterday we found out that Dick and Janet Kirkman were also camped at Potter's Creek. They are a couple that we know from Winter Ranch. They asked if we wanted to tour Gruene, Texas with them and then have dinner at the Italian restaurant in Canyon City. We were a little disappointed that the oldest tavern in the United States in Gruene wasn't open until evening. We were walking around taking pictures of the outside when the janitor came out and asked if we would like to see the inside. So, we were able to get some pictures of the inside...
