Catch Up with Pictures
Sorry it has been so long since I have written a blog. Could make lots of excuses but what good would that do ~ nothing. So to get you caught up to where we are I thought I would just post some pictures and tell a little about what we have been doing. Hope you enjoy!!
In case you forgot who we are and what we look like ~
Ron & Alice, also known in Texas as Ali
On Saturday, May 7th, the US Postal Carriers had their annual food drive. The members of Lone Star Corral came together and made a great donation of food for the local D'Hanis community. The collected food covered half the floor of the office lobby. Great job Lone tar Corral members!
Touring Comfort, Texas
Stopped for lunch at Brinks Cafe in Bandera, TX. They serve ice tea Texas stytle in a quart mason jar. We had a beautiful view from the window...if they were to get rain this would be a beautiful waterfall. And just look at the size of those onion rings. Also on that sampler plate was huge slices of zuchinni, cheese sticks and jalapeno slices called bottle caps. There were also these bright red bottle caps that I, Ali, thought were carrot slices, nope, red peppers and boy were they HOt!!!
More pictures of Comfort, TX. We were only there for an hour or so, so we are planning another visit to that sweet little town as they have a winery that we would like to visit.
More sights of Comfort, Texas.
On Saturday we went into Bandera for Funtier Days. It was a fun day to check out an arts & craft sale and watch a delightful parade. Our only complaint was it would have been nice if the people to our right and left would have stayed to our right and left. Nope, they had to move in front of us to watch the parade...it was a bit frustrating but we finally got to the point where we would just look at them and then at each other and just laugh.
This weekend, Memorial Day Holiday, we took a mini-vacation and went to Medina Lake Thousand Trails. They also serve food up Texas style ~ check out the bottle of syrup! We heard one little boy telling his Grandma that he saw 32 deer from their campsite to the swimming pool. The deer are fun to watch. Had one lady tell us that one came right up to her as she was sitting at their picnic table to sniff her and looking for food.
And then I did some decorating for the holiday. Love to have all my red, white & blue decorations throughout the motor home.
We have had a great mini-vacation. Spent a lot of time just reading, relaxing and taking a dip in the pool. Spent Sunday evening up at the Family Lodge visiting with new friends and listening to some great country music by Bimbo and the Borderlines. Even danced a few times with Ron ~ y'all would be happy to know he behaved himself on the dance floor.
