Mar 1, 2015 - Leaving the Beach

Both John and I have said that this winter was the best one we have had at the beach in Port Aransas and we believe it is because of the good friends we have. Pat was able to spend a couple of months with us. We got to know Otis and Twenty lots better this year, and my friend Jeannie also spent a couple of months there. We did a lot of fun things, ate a lot of great meals at lots of different kinds of restaurants, and spent a lot of time just laughing and enjoying good company. The hard part is having to say goodbye. -- Today, our four...

Dec 25, 2014 - Merry Christmas!

It just doesn't seem possible that it is that time of year once again. Time to wish all of our friends and family a Merry Christmas! Another month has passed. Another year has come and gone. A new year is about to begin. Where the heck does time go??? We are constantly surprised at the amount of time that has passed in what seems to be a short period of time. -- One of the good things about having this journal is our ability to go back and review days gone by. We can look up where we were three Christmases ago or where we spent Memorial Day...

Oct 17, 2014 - Son Fix

We enjoyed our down time at the Buckhorn Resort in Kerrville very much. The weather was perfect. We were able to get many of our maintenance items taken care of, and we rested and regrouped. Even the kitties. -- This morning, we were back on the road early, heading towards San Antonio. John has been having an on-going argument with himself for the past several days. Should we take the back roads to Seguin? Should we take the 1604, which goes around the outside edge of San Antonio, or should we just bite the bullet and go through downtown...

Oct 13, 2013 - Sweltering

We left the Texas Hill Country on Friday morning for Seguin, where my son Zac lives. It has been 7 months since we left the beach and I saw Zac, and I am in need of my son fix. -- The weather had changed dramatically during the night and on Friday morning, it was like walking into a sauna when you stepped outside. There is a weather system coming up from Mexico that is bringing hot and humid weather to Texas. The weather guessers are predicting a possibility of rain with humid conditions for the next week. -- It was a short travel day but...

Mar 1, 2013 - Another New Beginning

Today was the start of another travel season for John and I, and we were totally excited. After sitting for almost four months in one spot, we were a little rusty on the travel day routine, but the only thing I forgot to take down and put away was the wind chime in the bedroom. John always worries whether the engine is going to start after sitting idle for so long, but his fears were unfounded. The kitties found their usual hiding spots and we were off as the sun came up on a beautiful morning. It felt like spring today. The call of the...

Dec 20, 2012 - Traveling on Down the Road

We were excited this morning to once again hit the road. We came back to Seguin to spend the Christmas holiday with Zac. And wouldn't you know it, the weather turned cold overnight and it was incredibly windy. If we had still been in our old rig, we might not have traveled today, but Acey handles so much better in the wind that John really wasn't too concerned. -- The first obstacle was to get across on the ferry. We have never seen the water so rough before but the tide was high and there were no problems. Once off the island, we boogied,...

Dec 7, 2012 - Not Quite there yet

Sorry I haven't had time to update the last couple of days. We arrived at Jim & Judy's in Oklahoma and spent a great couple of days with them. They took us to a couple of casinos and some flea markets. Unfortunately none of us were very lucky, what we made in one casino we lost in the next but oh well it was fun. Sara chased the cat and picked a fight with the neighbors dog, Susy (a much bigger dog than her) so she didn't win but no one was hurt. We left Sara with the neighbor for the day and Susy got back at Sara by eating her dog food. We...

Oct 17, 2012 - Enjoying the River and the Kids

We are just two happy campers these days. We are back in one of our favorite spots on the Guadalupe River in Seguin. On top of that, I get to see, hug and visit with my son every day. -- I have enjoyed sitting outside, underneath the large trees overlooking the river. There are four ducks who call the park home; two white ones and two mallards. The large white duck seems to be the decision maker as to where to eat lunch, when to take baths, when and where to take naps. The ducks all hang together and mutter quietly to each other as they...

Mar 1, 2012 - We're Off . . . Eventually

We were both up and at 'em early, anxious to get on the road this morning. Word around the Park was that there would be a big line at the ferry, waiting to get across, and we wanted to get an early start. But, fate had a different idea. -- I laughingly told the neighbor about John's worry that the rig wouldn't start or that the jacks wouldn't go up, or that something would go wrong. We said our goodbyes once again to the early birds who were up to wish us safe travels. This year, we had a bunch of goodbyes and best wishes from people, which...

Feb 8, 2012 - Seguin Texas Home of the Worlds Largest Pecan

Today was my 44th celebration of my 29th birthday so Nancy and I took a short drive to Seguin Texas as we have never been there before. To read more about the city of Seguin please visit their facebook page HERE. There is additional information at the Chamber of Commerce website located HERE Our first stop was the Weinert House. Located on South Austin street, it is just a hop, skip and a jump from Interstate 10. We arrived at Seguin via the back roads and went under I 10 as we came into town. Here is the some history of the Weinert...

Dec 26, 2011 - A Feast

The other day, Christmas Eve in fact, John and I went to WalMart for groceries. It was not that hectic at all which really was surprising. In the meat dept, they had prime rib roasts for sale. You can never find one usually so we bought one. We had already planned on going out for Chinese on Christmas Day so we thought we would fix the roast today. I asked Zac if he liked prime rib and he said he didn't know if he ever had it before and wasn't really impressed that I might fix it for dinner today. -- My cold is better today. The sun was...

Dec 25, 2011 - Merry Christmas

John and I want to take this opportunity to wish all our family and friends a Merry Christmas and best wishes for a great new year for us all. -- We have had a nice day; sort of quiet, but perfect in it's own way. John reported his knees felt better today than they have in a long time. My Christmas cold seems to have peaked and I am hopeful that I will wake up tomorrow feeling better. It is the little things in life that make each day special. -- We made several phone calls and sent messages to family and friends and spent the morning...
