Working and Playing in North TX

I had a chance to do some "field" work at some medical clinics and took the opportunity. The trip started over the weekend with a trip to Alto, TX which is on the way to Tyler from here and visit friends Chris and Brenda who recently finished their new home there. It is a beautiful place on 70 or so acres. We stayed at their RV visitor spot and it was grand. We were so happy to be able to spend time with them and Brenda's mother and dad once again.


Sunday we were on our way to the first clinic and got stuck in Tyler due to problems at the clinic with the telephone company working on the network connection. This took a day and a half.

We moved our next reservation which was at Vineyards RV Resort in Grapevine which is about 20 minutes from the other clinics I had to visit. It is a really fine park that just finished a 1.6 million dollar upgrade to the spots which were not the most level in the world. Now is it great and the lake is second to none. We shall return there. The only problem is that the Rangers were playing at home on Friday and we planned to extend our stay until next week....NOT!
The place was booked up Fri-Sunday...so we headed home. While we were there we did cram in two visits with friends Linda and then John & Doretta who live in the area. It was a nice and much overdo visit. While there we ate on "Main" street which is THE place to visit and enjoyed the talents of the artist at http://vetroartglass.com/
Like a "dummy" we watched them making Christmas ornaments for an hour and thought of getting a photo just after they left for lunch. So, we did also.

Friday, we headed home after checking out early (checkout at Vineyards is 1:30 PM) and arrived before dark back in High Island.

I did trash my tow bar in Zavalla, TX while filling up at a local station. The place was below the highway level and on a curve. As I turned right out of the station the dip was too much for the tow bar and the right side arm bent making it difficult to hookup when heading home. I will call Roadmaster and most likely replace the whole darn thing.

We may try to sneak one more trip to the casino before Shari's ortho knee job next week but with this tropical thing in the Gulf next week it may not happen.

Until next time.
