Mar 24, 2017 - Winding down

Well winters over we have gone through the first day of spring on the 21st. We have had a good winter here in the valley. But that can't be said by some people. This year there seems to be alot of people with more health issues and several won't be back. Good habits bad habits and life catches up with all of us.

Most have been moved out of this park and the reason is you don't own the ground it sits on plus you need Hurricane Insurance in Cameron County. Just a few miles...

Mar 11, 2017 - Mexico

Linda's bad knee has popped a couple days ago which makes it harder to walk long distances. Hopefully it will be fixed some time this summer in Kentucky. Yesterday me and 2 more couples went to Mexico to get a varity of medicines for us and others that don't have passports. What I don't understand is how you can buy medicine across the border so cheap. First place you don't need a prescription second is I don't know. Alot of Winter Texans go over and get medicines. There are probably 50 or more pharmacy's across the border in Progresso. ...

Feb 12, 2017 - catching up

Well i'm going to try to catch up which shouldn't be to hard. The first 7 days of Feb. we had a cold and spent that time staying away from everyone. Truthfully we thought that it was over Saturday the 4th and we went down to the comedy entetainment that night and worked. It's really not work we sold chances for a free show ticket,a free CD or a 1/2 of the 50/50 pot. We call it work becuase we get paid by getting into the entertainment for free and you know I like free. But the cold wasn't completely gone until Tuesday that's when we started...

When he left I would go with AL and fish for Catfish. We hadn't seen AL and Sue for 3 1/2years. Linda had...
