I've now been out and about for several days. The last few weeks the weather has been rain, sleet, snow and sunshine. Temps in the twenties to the mid eighties. I've had flu like symptoms since before new years. Executive decision time...last Tuesday decided to go someplace, anyplace. Spent a few hours loading up the Bounder Tuesday and about as much time convincing Roxie to get out...we're not leaving till tomorrow. Likely story she thought. I think she's got cabin fever too. We spent Tuesday night restlessly. Each time I would go to the door she would dang near knock me down....she is not going to be left. Pulled out Wednesday headed south. First stop was for fuel. Sure felt good to fill up with $1.999 fuel. Tried to lasso Tex into meeting for some "holier than thou" barbeque but Ms Sally had him lined up for something different. Arrived at Spring Creek Park just a little north of Houston. Only 8 spaces with full 50 amp hook ups. Best part is....free for max of 7 days. I wanted to drive down to Galveston to see how the recovery is coming. Dang, we Texans are resilient. Did not see nor hear...where's thegovernment or where's my check. In spite of Fema, they are well on their way to recovery. I knowI'm prejudice, but I bet Galveston in 3 1/2 months is further ahead of our neighbors one state over is in 3 years. Of course we're accustom of taking care of ourselves. Just a proud Texans point of view. I've spent the rest of my time relaxing and meeting some really nice people. I'm leaving in the morning for some other place. Maybe South Padre Island and then to Mexico. The liquor cabinet needs some replenishing after the holidays and the "hot toddies". See you on down the road.
