Jul 6, 2016 - Home Again, Home Again

The Fourth of July in Cheyenne was mostly quiet at least until dark. We had a rain storm come thru in late afternoon and another one came thru around 9pm so finding a professional fireworks show seemed out of the question. Turned out the campground had decided to allow campers to shoot off fireworks in the park. About 9:30 we started hearing them go off so we took Ranger out to see what we could. Luckily as long as we stay calm, Ranger watches fireworks as a normal night. Unfortunately, our fellow campers thought they should continue...

Headed West 2016

Apr 19, 2014 - Plano, TX

April 19, 2014 Dinner at the Urbano Café was very fun, interesting food and great wines! The restaurant was not large although it was two dining areas separated by store or spice room. Odd arrangement! The neighborhood was “seedy”. The Clampetts were probably neighbors! BUT the clientele were “in the know” and trendy Dallas folks. We had three wine glasses ( no room on the table for a water glasses (!) but there are priorities!). We had to pass the 4 appetizers as there was no room on the table to put them down! Delicious risotto balls,...

Apr 18, 2014 - Big Spring to Plano, TX

April 18, 2014 Our first overcast and cool morning. I woke very early with several trucks leaving camp for work. Think most who are staying here are temporary or seasonal employees. Again the scenery was not terribly exciting. Bob had decided he was going to have Mexican food for lunch somewhere. As we approached Fort Worth he saw Rosa’s Café and Tortilla shop. Rosa’s is a west Texas chain. The format is that you order at a counter and pick up to sit in a regular service style seating area. The food was fresh, tasty but nothing special! I...

Jul 17, 2013 - Home Again, Home Again-Reflections on California

After 2 months and change, we are finally back. From Gallup we traveled on Monday to Amarillo and again stayed in the KOA. It was very strange to pull in during July to temps in the 70s. Usually we use Amarillo as a transition from Colorado to the 90s and 100s and are miserable. This was a pleasant change. On Tuesday we completed our journey. We again remarked how strange it was to pull through Childress and Wichita Falls with temps in the 70s and pouring down rain. The rain was a challenge at times and slowed us down, but it was such a...

May 21, 2013 - May 21, 2013 – Aubrey, Texas

May 21, 2013 – Aubrey, Texas I was going to meet Helen for lunch today in Irving, but the weather put a kibosh on that. It is all the way across Dallas from here, and I didn’t want to be driving in hard rain and possibly hail or even a tornado. It began to rain about 1:30 and rained hard until about 4:30 p.m. We were under a severe thunderstorm warning all afternoon and a tornado watch until 7 p.m. Fortunately, there was no hail and no tornado. I’ve spent the day working on my posts, editing pictures and uploading both. I am caught up now...

May 20, 2013 - May 20, 2013 – Plano, Texas

May 20, 2013 – Plano, Texas Today I watched Let’s Make a Deal before I attempted to set out to do some chores. However, before I got out the door, I got a call from a cousin, Wilma. She and her husband are planning their 60th wedding anniversary celebration, and she wanted to know if it would be possible for me to attend a party in Missouri this summer. Since her wedding was the 1st one I ever attended, I readily agreed to be there. I remember being really impressed by all her attendants. We visited for a while before I left to do my...

May 17, 2013 - May 17, 2013 – Plano, Texas

May 17, 2013 – Plano, Texas Helen had to go in for a half day today so I slept in. I went to bed at 8:30 last night and woke up at 8:30 this morning. I spent the rest of the morning doing a few things around the house. I met Helen for lunch, and we had a good time visiting. We didn’t anything other than visit this afternoon. I made it back to the coach just as it was getting dark. jnd

Jun 6, 2012 - Plano TX

Very humid at camp so we sat at the pool where there was a breeze until we showered and left for our appointment at Waco with Dr. Richenstein. Pepper stayed in his office ( with a window that he could see out and entertain himself!) while we had lunch at the faculty club. Were on the way to Plano by 1:00. Stopped at Costco to get provisions for making Roby and Theresa dinner. Barry Ganley reminded of us of the rack of lamb recipe he gave us years ago (we have made many times but the TX flies have sapped what memory we had of it.) Arrived...

Jun 6, 2012 - Plano TX

Up at 7:00 (early for us now!) to take Pepper for another walk. Roby had an appointment. By the time we got back, Todd, Rita and Cullen were up[. Our assignment from Roby was to make breakfast but they were so full from the night before that there were no takers. We chatted until about 10:00 when Roby came home. Todd and Cullen are also distributors of a product called protandim which is a phytonutrient that signals the body’s genes to produce anti-oxidizing enzymes that destroy free radicals that cause disease, contributes to the aging...

Jun 6, 2012 - Plano

Rained overnight so it was not so humid in the morning. Roby took us on an hour walk around the neighborhood. Very nice park-like residential area with ponds, fountains etc. Is also very conveniently located to Costco, Whole Foods and other necessities. Forgot to ask about Trader Joe’s. Roby made us French toast and bacon for breakfast. Yummy. He fried the toast in bacon grease with butter and added cinnamon and brown sugar to the batter. It was cool enough to eat by the pool. Pepper had a great time finding a nesting spot in the monkey...

Nov 16, 2011 - Tiny "E"

We drove to Dallas today to have lunch with my brother Stephen and also to get a glimpse at my newest grand nephew Elliot or as new Grandpa Stephen sometimes calls him "Tiny E." Amanda was able to go with us and we had a great lunch at a "homestyle cooking" place called The Mecca. Afterwards, we drove to Plano to my nephew Jordan and his lovely wife Lauren's house where my sister-in-law Debbie was babysitting Elliot for the day. He had just gone to sleep, so I wasn't expecting too much out of him, but he woke up with gusto at the new faces,...

Oct 21, 2011 - Finally...Moving this weekend

A lot of progress has been made. Katie's coming to get everything that she wants out of the house this weekend, we've given away or sold almost everything else. It's looking good for us to be out of here soon. Our plan is to be on the road, headed to a beach, on November 6th. Wish us luck!
