Our New sign

We got our new sign and it sure is a beauty. If you want a great quality sign here is where we got ours  BK Signs & Designs, Keith Geiger is the owner.
DSCN0177 I made a lamp post/sign holder for the new sign and I really like the way it turned out.
Debi woke up yesterday morning not feeling very well and today is not a good one for her either. She has had back surgery in the past and every once in a while it acts up, I sure hope she feels better today.
Tuesday we leave to go to Miami Florida to visit my daughter and her family. I hope Debi’s back is feeling better before we leave, or it will be very uncomfortable for her on the plane. I will be posting lots of pictures on my facebook page when we get back to Texas. Click here for my page. Happy RVing

The Storm

We left Thousand Trails Lake Conroe on Monday. Driving down I-45 south, we hit  rain. It was raining so hard I had to slow down to about 45 MPH, by the time we hit I-10 going west the wind was blowing about 40-50 MPH straight out of the north and the rain was intense.

We finally made it to Thousand Trails Colorado River. The rain and wind had stopped, so we unhooked the Jeep and headed for our site.PA150257

As soon as we got here  the deer moved in PA150275PA130255

Wednesday we woke to 49 degrees, I had to turn the heat on for the first time this season, but it warmed up about an hour later and we had to switch back to AC…..Got to love Texas weather.

Thursday was a great day. Janice and Dave came over for a fish fry. Janice’s uncle had given her some fish that he had caught and cleaned. Janice and Debi brought out their induction cook tops and fried fish, potato chips and onion straws, everything was delicious.

Later on, Debi and I were sitting and talking about camera’s, and we decided we needed a better one than the ones we had, so at about 6:30 we decided to take a 56 mile drive to Katy Tx to visit Best Buy. We checked out a few camera’s and settled on a Nikon P-600. We will get some pictures when the deer start moving and will post them later.

Until Later….Happy RVing

We Finally Closed On The House.

We closed on the house Friday, it sure was a long hard path.
After the closing we met with some good friends and celebrated with a steak and lobster dinner, then it was back to Thousand Trails Lake Conroe.
Woke up Saturday morning to the sound of rain hitting the roof of the motor home, I really love that sound  it’s so relaxing. Rained most of the day so we just sat around and watched TV most of the day.

Well, it's Sunday morning and it's 9 ;00 AM and overcast. It looks nasty outside, Debi and Cricket are still sleeping and I'm on my second cup of coffee. I guess we will start getting ready for moving day tomorrow. We will be heading over to Thousand Trails Colorado River for a 21 day stay, we should be pulling there at about the same time as our good friends Janice and David Evans, it will be great seeing them again and catching up on last few months.

I think I will be spending some time today on the phone with American Airlines, We are planning a short trip to Miami to see my Daughter, son in law, and four Grands, I can't wait.
I think I will have one more cup of coffee and make some noise, maybe I can wake up the two sleeping beauties.     See Ya!!

Still waiting to close.

We are still waiting to close, We were supposed to close on our house last Friday...Well that got postponed because the buyer forgot to submit her divorce papers to the VA.
The closing was changed to Monday, well monday morning we get a call from our agent saying they haven't got all their paperwork done so the closing will be wednesday or thursday, well guess they say it will be friday at 2:00 PM.

In the meantime, we have registered our vehicles in Livingston Texas which is our new address (Escapees), we have moved out of our driveway and into Thousand Trails Lake Conroe until monday, then it's off to Thousand Trails Colorado River for 21 days.
 We will be coming back to Conroe after Colorado River for what Debi is calling a Meet, Greet and Eat at Luby's for our group members, Debi said 50 people have RSVP so far. It will be great to meet some of our group members.

When we get to Colorado River TT we will be meeting our good friends Dave and Janice Evans, It's been months since we have seen them, we have a lot of catching up to do!

A special shout out to our friend Fred Siems, who finished his last chemo treatment the other day..Congrats Fred.

Well, it's 3:00 AM and I am going to try and get some shuteye. I will be back tomorrow and let Y'all know if we finally closed or not .....Fingers crossed
