Joy, a friend I made in 08 when we were here, finally got back this week. It was really good to see her again, but sad too, because this is the first time we have seen her since her husband, Jack, died here last year. She has a very large, nice motor home for sale. It is a 2005, and she is only asking $120,000.00 for it. If you know anyone interested, I will take some pictures and add them here.
We have been busy again for the past couple of days. Monday night the gang decided to play games, but didn’t tell everyone till the last minute, so Don and I had pie and a banana for supper. I know how wrong this is, but since we have started socializing again, we hate missing one minute with our friends. We had a big laugh when Eva’s back pad slipped out of the back of her chair, it reminded us all of the old fashioned PJ’s that had the flap in the back.
That is what I love about this group, we laugh non-stop when we are all together, and sometimes it is something silly like this.
Yesterday four of us girls, Nancy, Winnie, Joy, and myself went to Uvalde and did some antiquing. We all love doing this, and it is a way to get out and enjoy each other’s company. It would make your head spin to listen in on some of our discussions. We hit 4 or 5 places, then stopped at Applebee’s for lunch. Winnie and I had the Grilled Shrimp on rice, with steamed vegetables. Nancy had some orange chicken on steamed vegetables, and Joy had country fried chicken steak, with mashed taters and vegetables. It was all very good. I didn’t get any pictures at lunch, but did get some at the Antique shops.
After lunch we all headed to Wal*Mart to pick up a few things. We just had one problem. It was pouring down rain and we were in my truck, so clearly we had a problem. Nancy, bless her heart, was able to put most of hers in 2 bags and put them on the floor-board in the passenger’s side, and Winnie and Joy put some of theirs in the very back. Just the stuff that wouldn’t be damaged by the rain. Mine, yarn, fit in between Nancy and I, in the front seat. We had a ball and are all going to Sabinal next week.
Thursday night we will all be going to The Red Barn for supper. They are having some kind of sale on Steak Dinners, and some of the crowd think this is great. We will probably eat something other than steak, since neither one of us really care for steak, but the main reason for going is the good time.
A day or two ago, when we were headed over to Leakey for something or other, a deer was running along the road, and couldn’t get away from us. We followed very slowly, so we wouldn’t scare her and cause her to run in front of us. Eventually there was a break in the fence, and she was able to make her get-away. We have these kinds of experiences here in Texas a lot. Have I mentioned how much we love it down here?
Friday evening the RV park will be playing games and everyone is bringing some kind of snack food. I haven’t decided yet what to take. We are also having a pot luck dinner on New Year’s Day, and I am taking a desert for that. Probably a cake.
Want to welcome my newest follower, Gary. Again, I couldn’t find a site for him, so if you have one, please contact me with it, and I will post it here. Anyway, welcome aboard, and hope you enjoy the ride.
Going to get off of here and get some computer work done today. I need to store some more pictures on my external hard drive, and do a few other clean-up things on here. I cleaned the RV early this morning, so that is out of the way for a few days. Later :)
