Let The Race Begin

Having the fridge repaired and the brakes fail on the same trip from the dealer was more excitement that we wanted. But today, we gather the motor home from Monument Chevrolet in Pasadena and begin four weeks of scheduled maintenance for Thursday along with packing for our little trip. Gee, I wish I were twins!

We got a new portable grill as I killed our old one using it for our only family grill for months last year after hurricane Ike. I still have to wash/wax the coach but it may just have to travel in it's "natural" state this trip. The journey is kind of tight with PowWow for the first two days then off to Crater of Diamonds State Park for a bit of dirt sifting and some quartz mining on the "mountain". This is something we have put off for a few years now but should make it back this trip if all goes well. We plan to add a day to the trip and swing by Lake Charles the last day for a Peter Frampton concert at the Isle of Capri (thanks Isle for such a great summer series with Lonestar, Frampton, the Commodores and 38 Special, May-August. The room at the Isle is small and has the feel of a private party. Well worth the bucks we wager at the casino.

Our "house / cat sitter" is lined up...Thanks girl you are the greatest.... so no worries on the home front.

For those who frequent http://Jatexas.com you will note my "hurricane" link...June starts the Atlantic Hurricane season which should prove to be a busy travel/evacuation season but time will tell. Our "Hurricane Action Plan" is in place and we await whatever surprises Mother Nature passes our way.

If we find a nice stone, win the lottery or stay poor it matters not. Shari and have the life we planned when we got married in 1974 and thanks to the Grace of God are able to enjoy our home, RV and each other for the rest of our time together. I always say "if we were having any more fun we would have to be twins to enjoy it all".

Until Next Time
