Rainy Day

Today was a crappy day. This morning we had the weekly  meeting. Donuts and coffee were free this morning. After we came home we stayed in the trailer till this evening. Then we went to a Shoneys in McCallen. We had the buffet. It wasn't too bad. Some of the food could have been hotter. They were not busy. It is still raining here at 9:00. Not hard just a drizzle. Guess they need the rain. Not much else going on. Later all Ron Thelma and Eli

Christmas Day

Well Christmas is all over Seems like it just was a week away and now it is gone already. Went to church in Alamo last night. Nice service. The pastor that was here 3 yrs ago is still here. Today we had a dinner here in the park. We had signed up about a week ago. The host lady came around and said we needed to bring two passing dishes. Thelma made Au gratin potatoes and bean green casserole. Somebody took the glass dish that the potatoes were in. Hope they realize they got the wrong one. Tonight it was potluck. They took all the food that was leftover and put it on a bunch of tables and then you helped yourself. Got to taste some food that we hadn't before. The park furnished the ham. It was pretty good. Tomorrow morning we have the weekly meeting. The donut's are free tomorrow. After dinner today we had a man entertain us who is blind. Can't believe how he does it . Well guess that is it for tonight  Later Ron Thelma and Eli

Where has the time gone.

Yesterday we went to Peter Piper  table and just chatted. Today we had the trailer washed and waxed. Good price   After they left I washed the truck. It was dirty too. The roof of the trailer was really dirty. The trailer looks really good for now. Tomorrow morning we have a breakfast at the club house. Think we will go for that. The weather here has been good. Hot in the high eighty's. It is going to go down next week. That is okay with us. Guess that is it for tonight. Ron Thelma and Eli

Victoria, Texas

Another day done and one to go. We are staying at Lazy longhorn RV park. We stayed here 3 years ago when going to the valley. Nice park Close to the hwy. Mickeys close on the way out to hwy. We should get down to Alamo tomorrow around 2 or 3. Depends on how many stops we make. Then it will take a couple of days to get setup. Won't do it all in one day. The park we stayed at last night was the best we have stayed in since leaving the Fort. Well that is about it for tonight. Lot of winter residents here. They have trees out all decorated.
