Checking in ~

Thought I had better check in and let y'all know that we are alive and well.

Memorial Day weekend found us camping at Medina Lake Thousand Trails, about 50 miles from D'Hanis.  We went swimming, slept, read, rested, ate bbq, went to a parade, rested and read some more.  It was a great relaxing time.

The first weekend in June we went for about a 5 hour ride in the Jeep.  We enjoy doing that kind of thing.

The second weekend in June we were back at Medina Lake Thousand Trails, this time with Hank & Euona Rathjen, a couple from here at Lone Star Corral.  We visited with each other and found out what a small world we live in.  In 1968 I hurt my eye on Gerber Road, in Sacramento, CA and in 1971 Hank & Euona lived on Gerber Road.  Small world indeed.  Saturday afternoon we went to the ice cream social at the clubhouse.  In the evening we bbq'd ribs and had potato salad, coleslaw and fresh corn on the cob.  It was delicious.  And we followed up dinner with peach pie and vanilla ice cream.  It was another great weekend here in Texas.

This weekend we ran errands, went grocery shopping, stopped at a Farmer's Market and went to church this morning.  Chatted with the pastor about our frustration of having such a difficult time to connect with people.  He seemed to understand and was a good encouragement to Ron and I.  He prayed with us about my upcoming surgery and said he would like to join us at the hospital before I go in and sit with Ron during the surgery.  It felt so good to pray with someone else, I have missed being able to pop into Pastor Charles' office and have him pray with me and talk about life and life's happening's.

After church we went to JB's BBQ - do you see a theme here?  So far we have eaten at about six different places.  Our favorite so far is Busbee's in Bandera.  Maybe I should make a running list of all the places we go for BBQ and rate them.  What do you think?

After lunch we went to Tractor Supply to return a denim shirt I had bought Ron ~ the snaps did not stay snapped :(  We bought Ron two more short-sleeved western shirts (with snaps ~ he hates buttons) and I bought a sleeveless western style shirt to wear with my denim skort.  We are definitely getting into the Texas wear here.

That's about it here ~ oh, and yes it is HOT here - we are experiencing 100'+ days.  Lots of them!  We are told this is very unusual for this time of year.  Yes 100'+ days in August not June.

That's about it from here.  Hope you are all doing great!!!

Sounds like things are going well.

We eat a lot of BBQ here in Kansas City and love it.

It's not good to have snaps that don't snap. I'm glad that I read you on Facebook so that I can keep up with all your news! Good job on the blog, too--it's always a treat to hear your news. :)

Great to hear from you again. I have been wondering how you two are. It seems like there is a BBQ place around every corner in Texas, but it is all good. Stay safe, and hope you do well with your surgery.

Glad to hear you are getting out and about and still able to get some camping in on your days off. Good luck with your upcoming surgery.
