Heading home

We are on our way home. Two more days and we will be home. We are in Sikeston Mo tonight. Went to Lambert's home of the throwed rolls. We have leftovers for tomorrow night. This winter was not the best as far as weather goes. We had the best weather at our retiree rally. It ended on Sun evening. Will stop in Casey Ill. tomorrow night. I sure haven't done very good on the blog this winter. We did not do all that much sightseeing as we were there 3 years ago. Well can't think of much else.  Later Ron Thelma and Eli

Catching up again

Last week we went to Bentson State park. Saw a lot of green jays. They had a blind set up where you could see them . I took a lot of pictures.I need to upload them then put a link on here. On Sun we went on a Dolphin tour at South Padre Island. We did not see that many Dolphins. Lot of pelicans around the dock area. Took a lot of them I cant remember how to put pictures on here. Have to figure how to do that. I have done it other times. Today Eli got a clip and so did Thelma and I. Went to super cuts. The lady was originally from Tenn. I like the good English talking ones. Tomorrow is laundry day. We leave here on the 13th and go to Rockport TX for a week. Guess that is about it. Later Ron Thelma and Eli

Yesterday we went to a Mexican restaurant with the winter Texans. It took forever to get served. We had 80 some people coming which they know but only had one cook for that many. Then the waitress were not ready for that many. Not enough of them. By the time we got our food the first ones had already eaten and got their bills. Those of us at our table were not happy. Today was our meeting this morning and then this afternoon we had people from the border patrol. It was very interesting to here how many they catch in a day and what the people will try to do to get over here. It was another warm day. It has been above normal for the last few days. Guess it is making up for the cold that we had. Tomorrow I need to find a office Max and a Lowes. Also think grocery run maybe. Well that is it for tonight  Later Ron Thelma and Eli

Catching up

Well here I go again Trying to remember what we have done. Sat we went to the flea market to hear Gordie and Debbie. What a great duo they are. Could have sat there all afternoon. Went to church at 5. Sunday we had Walter Plant for a gospel show. This man is blind. But you wouldn't know it from listening to him. It has been really hot here . It went from cold to hot Not something in between. Tomorrow we have a winter Texan dinner so think we will put the air on for Eli. Guess that is about it. I need to write down what we do and then put it on here. Later Ron Thelma and Eli

Cold Spell again

Well it turned cold here again. They say this is the worst winter they have had in a while. I know it's not like back home but it is getting ridiculous. Tues we took Eli to get groomed. He really looks good. He got a report card. Said he really did well. Even brushed his teeth. Today some friends stopped over and we went to lunch at a BBQ place it was good. We had not been to it yet. At the meeting this morning they said somebody had clothes on the line outside by the Laundromat and somebody took them Somebody walked off with Thelma's Pyrex casserole dish at Christmas time. If we were coming back down the valley we would not stay here that is for sure. Well guess that is it for tonight  Later Ron Thelma and Eli

Were still here

I know it has been a while since I posted. Seems if I don't do it every day I get way behind. Not even sure what all we have done. Last Friday we went to a RV show in Mercedes. They had quite a few trailers there. Looked at some Montana's. Didn't see any that we really liked. Fri evening we had a fish fry here in the park. It was good. We went to Golden corral for breakfast Sun morning. It was better than Shoneys and cheaper too. It is about the same distance from here. today we had our jam with lunch before hand with haystack Tomorrow  Eli gets clipped. He needs it bad. Can't think of anything else right now Will try and keep up with this better. Ron Thelma and Eli

Hope I can remember what all we did. Wed we had the activity meeting and then went to the Don Wes flea market. Got a couple of things. Thurs we went  to Wally World. Fri we had French toast breakfast in the big room. It was good. After that we sat and talked to the people at our table. Sat we went to an RV show at one of the dealers just down the road. Didn't see any thing we really liked. They will have a big show here in Feb. Tues we have a Winter Texans meeting. And Wed. they have a senior health fair in the valley. Oh forgot on Thurs we had a Sky Med appreciation dinner. Was good.  Next week we are going to a Killer Bees hockey game. Not sure what league they are in. Well think that catches up what I can remember. Later  Ron Thelma and Eli

We had a couple of days of nice weather. Yesterday we went to Denny's for breakfast. Will not go there again. To expensive. 1.99 for coffee. Cost extra for toast. After that we went to the flea market. Ordered a cover for around the front of the fifth wheel. That will cover up the fridge that we have under there. Also will keep the chairs dry if it rains. They need to come out and measure for the size first. Then last night we went to church in Alamo. They started the Sat. night service this week. They said the attendance in the valley at the Lutheran churches is down. They rely on the Winter Texans for financial support. The churches in the bigger cities don't have that problem. Today we went to what a burger for breakfast as the restaurant we wanted to go to was so crowded and couldn't find a place to park the truck. After that we drove to  the campground we stayed in when down here 3 years ago. It is about empty. We heard the flea market behind it is buying it out. We then came home and watched the Bengals get beat. Darn they did not play well at all. Next week the Colts go to New England. Hope they can beat them. Well that is it for now.  Later Ron Thelma and Eli

An update

I know I am behind. Just can't seem to get in the habit of posting. We haven't done all that much her. We have went out to eat and went to some jams here in the park. We went to the big flea market here in Weslaco. I ordered a skirt for around the front of the fifth wheel. They measured last Wed. Not sure when it will be done.  Sat morning we drove to McAllen to the Egg and I. It was advertised in the Winter Texan paper. When we finally found it it was permanently closed. This morning we went to the Mexican restaurant in Alamo where we usually go on Sat night after church. It sprinkled here this evening. The weather has been in the 70s and 80s. My colts lost. So now Denver needs to beat NE Hope they can do it. Don't like Brady. He got one women pregnant and then married another. Okay that is it for tonight  Later  Ron Thelma and Eli

Happy New Year

Well 2013 is in the books. Last night we went to the dance at the rec hall. They served lunch at 10:00 then when it was 1200 on the east coast. they had the tv on so we could see the ball drop. We came home after that. Then the fireworks started They lasted till around 12:30. Today we just hung around the trailer. Tomorrow morning we have our weekly meeting to find out what is going on for the week. Not sure what else we will do after that. It has stopped raining for a day or too. Supposed to be nice on the weekend then cool off again next week. Don't know what it is supposed to after then. Well that is it for tonight  Later Happy New Year  to all.  Ron Thelma and Eli
