Making the Most of Waiting…

Saturday night, in the wee hours of the morning, the wind picked up and we rocked the remainder of the night.  Needless to say sleep was a fleeting thing…it came and went as I tend to be a bit paranoid when it comes to wind.  At 6:30 am I got up and brought the really … Continue reading »

Tradition!

The days leading up to Christmas found us tracking packages from our son Dan’s family.  Some came here some went to Post Office as undeliverable, some went to Post Office into the Gate Guard Service’s Post Office box.  Dan had given us all of the tracking numbers and it was kinda fun tracking the progress … Continue reading »

A Little Area History

Weather’s been great during the day – high 60s to low 70s.  However, temps have really taken a nose dive at night…dipping down into the low 30s a couple of recent nights.  We pretty much rely on our heat pumps, space heater and fireplace for heat but when temps go down below about 33 or … Continue reading »

The Time Has Come…

While we were on our last gate Michael noticed the truck acting strangely and got a ‘wrench’ on the dashboard.  On the way to Carrizo Springs the strangeness continued…hard to explain but kind of like the truck was trying to change gears but having troubles doing so. We knew that the truck was due for … Continue reading »

Afterward we went … Continue reading »

The Time Has Come

Woohoo!  After a year and a half we finally have a back splash again!  Can’t say that I don’t have a timely husband!  <Insert eye roll> The back splash that came with the coach was made of glass and worked great…until…we left the coach parked at Michael’s mom’s house for 2 months in the summer.  Well … Continue reading »

Cowpokes Vs Shoot the Bull

Tuesday 12/1 Michael took the totes out of basement in an effort to rearrange them as he didn’t like the new configuration he put together while we were at Dan and Amanda’s home this summer. With all the totes were out it was easy to take out the Christmas decorations and put away the fall/Thanksgiving decorations.  We don’t … Continue reading »

Thursday 11/26 We had a nice, quiet Thanksgiving with a very non-traditional dinner of  steak, shrimp, … Continue reading »
