We Made It


After 4 days of hard traveling, we finally made it.  We love it down here and are really looking forward to a nice winter stay.  A lot of the group is back here again, although we haven’t talked to anyone yet, Pam, one of the Ladies from the office told me they are all here.  Even Joy, who lost her husband last year, made it back.  I look forward to seeing them all again.


Tomorrow will be spent going to the grocery and trying to get some cleaning done.  I am going to have to pick up a new TV also.  Mine keeps losing it’s audio, and now it won’t pick up all the cable stations.  It is only 3 years old, but I can’t live without my news stations.  They just don’t make them like they use too.  When my kids were little, we had the same TV for 20 years.


This Park is so nice.  We have full hook-ups, free WI-FI, free cable, and all for $370.00 a month, for the first month; then any month you stay after that is $30.00 cheaper.  What a deal.  They also have craft classes, live music, a Christmas party, game nights, and lots of Pot Lucks.  And, the beautiful Frio River is right here.  I will get pictures very soon, so you can see this beautiful River too.

My best buddy, Willie called me Friday evening with some very bad news.  Our friend from North Vernon, Bobby, was found dead in his house.  I think it was probably a diabetic coma, but am not sure.  He was a good friend to our whole family for years, and will be sadly missed.


We really lucked out on fuel in Southern Arkansas.  It was only $2.94 a gallon.  Today when we filled up, here in Texas, it was $3.13 a gallon.  Seems like it should be cheaper down here, but who knows?  I think they just charge whatever they want.


Welcome to my newest followers, N and J.  I have been reading her site for a while.  She has a quirky sense of humor, and I look forward to each of her posts.


Not to rub it in or anything, but it is 64* and sunny here in Texas.  Yes, I’m gonna love it here.  It was in the 80’s here yesterday, but a cold front went through last night.


I have to share a short story about a Trucker that helped me out the other day.  We pulled into a truck-stop to fuel up and somehow or other I got in the wrong lane, and was right in the way of the big truckers, and in danger.  This guy actually pulled his truck in front of mine, to shield me, and then directed me around to get into the right lane.  It was so nice of him, and he didn’t have to do it, but I sure appreciated it, and made sure he knew it.  Some of these guys are so nice.


I’m going to get off of here and get this posted.  I need to figure out something to fix for supper.  Stay safe…. :)

Hi Pidge,

Happy to hear you made it to your campground safely. Wow, what a deal that is! And the beautiful Frio River too. We loved it across the river at Garner State Park. Next time through there, we will have to try and get in your park.

Very sorry about the loss of your friend.

Enjoy the rest of your day.

I've found most truckers to be very courteous.

Sorry to hear about your friend, Bobby.

I hope your weather gets nice and stays that way. It is so cold here in the morning, but it's 73F right now at 4:30 mountain time. We can be in such a better mood when the weather is comfortable.

Pidge, I'm sorry to hear about the unexpected death of your friend, Bobby. As Ali commented, you've been through a lot lately.

Glad to hear about your great park in Texas. Maybe now you can rest and relax for a while!

The Frio River, a well kept Texas secret. Yes Texas likes to charge more for diesel. I paid $2.88 in MS on Thanksgiving.

Glad you're at your destination. Enjoy!

Hi Pidge,
So glad you made it safe and sound and are getting settled in.
From what I've read in several of your recent posts, you have had a very rough year.
I hope things get much better for you from now on. Remember to have a lot of fun and take good care of yourself!

Hi Pidge,

I think I answered your question on my blog!? Come back and see....

You ever hear that George Strait song where he sings, "I remember that old Frio River, where I learned to swim..." Thanks, Pidge, now I have that stuck in my head!!

So, now for your punishment, you have to name that tune :)
