May 23, 2017 - May 20 Iowa Park, Tx

We woke up Saturday morning to fresh coffee and perfectly prepared omelettes. Ron and I took a walk to Gordon Lake in Oscar Park just a couple of blocks from Lori and Sam's house. The wind was brisk so we did not walk around the entire lake. It is a bird sanctuary area with mallards, Peking ducks (domestic), Canada geese (we saw three families, including one set of parents with 10 goslings), some kind of rook or grackles that inhabit the reeds on one of the the islands and two birds that looked like barn swallows but with 10'...

May 21, 2017 - May 19th Houston to Iowa Park, Tx.

Today's the day we travel from Houston to Iowa Park just north of Wichita Falls, Tx to visit for a few days with Ron's sister Lori. We were awake and moving an hour ahead of schedule and escaped without another encounter with the manic BnB owner. Bless his heart, Chewey was visibly upset. The front door has glass panes and at one point he was just sitting there mournfully looking out the window. I needed to keep him confined while I moved the car out the gate and so I got his leash out. He got so excited that he was "going with" that I...
