First Monday & Family

Since we were in the area and it had been almost five years since we visited First Monday in Canton, TX we decided to take the day and wander the grounds. The First Monday grounds is 100 acres and has space for 6,000 vendors.  First Monday is a huge flea market of sorts…but it doesn’t just … Continue reading »

Gearing Up for the North Texas Rally

Tuesday was pretty quiet except that we visited the Times Square Cinema here in Tyler to take in this weeks movie.  This week it was Mother!.  We’d seen previews for it at previous movies and it looked interesting. Well…yeah…not much to say.  It started out good…for about the first 5 or 10 minutes.  Then it … Continue reading »

Travel Day: Oklahoma City, OK To Tyler, TX

We and about five other couples were due to head 290 miles south to Tyler, Texas today.  We planned to leave about 9:00 am and it sounded like several others did too. After saying “goodbye’, ‘see ya soon’, or ‘catch ya down the road’ we pulled out of the Roadrunner RV Park at 8:54 am. … Continue reading »

Wrapping Up the Oklahoma Chapter Rally

Saturday was a pretty quiet day for us as we didn’t do a whole lot. We stayed at the park, hung out inside as it’s been so darn hot here. Michael started washing the ‘love bugs’ off the front cap on Thursday and then waxed it on Saturday.   I did some laundry and made some … Continue reading »

Crafts, Steaks & Trains

This morning Barbara W. led about ten ladies in a craft.  We were asked to bring a t-shirt that we didn’t mind cutting up but the actual craft was kept a mystery until we got to the rally hall. We ended up making a tote bag from the shirts.  Much like the ‘tie’ blankets that … Continue reading »

First Official Rally Day

Today was the first ‘official’ day of the Oklahoma Chapter rally here in Oklahoma City.  We kinda stayed in the house in the morning (it’s flippin’ HOT out there!) but Michael did go out and join a small crowd gathered over at Jay & Stella’s to watch two guys install new springs on their coach. … Continue reading »

Braum’s Factory Tour…Yum!

First thing Tuesday morning we had a knock at the door and our friend Gus F and his pups (Romeo & Juliet) were there.  This was actually the first time we’d met Gus in person…although we’ve been friends on Facebook for several years.  Sure was nice to meet in person!  We chatted for a while … Continue reading »

Travel Day: Mt. Ida, AR To Oklahoma City, OK

Our goal was to pull out of our site about 8:30 am and we ended up pulling out before 8:30.  It was a bit of a tight squeeze but Mikey did an excellent job and we came out unscathed. Next was dealing with the awkward dump station that’s on the opposite side of the road … Continue reading »

Indians and Watermelon

On our way to Mike’s mom’s house (one of many routes we’ve taken between our place and hers) we pass through the itty bitty town of Caddo Gap.  Caddo Gap has a population of less than 100 and is easily missed if you blink while driving down highway 8 between Norman and Glenwood. At the … Continue reading »

Lum & Abner and Queen Wilhelmina

**Remember if you click on a picture the picture will open in a larger window for better viewing! Tuesday, 9/12 I’m not quite old enough to remember to listening to Lum & Abner on the radio…but I do remember hearing of them. Lum and Abner was a comedy radio show that aired from 1931 to … Continue reading »
