Bye,Bye, Padre

Today is our last day in Padre. Getting out before the Spring Breakers get here. There are already quite a few this week but nothing like next week will be.
We went to karaoke Friday and Sunday nights. We don't sing but really enjoyed hearing all of the Winter Texans do it. We had to leave by 9:30 so the kids could come in and sing also. We met a couple from Drumright, OK (15 minutes down the road). Small world.
Yesterday we went to Mexico again to shop, eat, and drink Margaritas. They have the best Margaritas in the world. The place we go, Progresso is not one of the bad places. The town closest to us now is not a good place to go so we drove 30 minutes longer to get to Progresso.
We will leave here tomorrow and head North. We are planning on stopping in Austin to see the LBJ museum then to the Dallas area to see the Kennedy stuff. After that we are going north of Dallas to visit one of my friends in Van Alstyne, TX. After that we don't know, maybe home, maybe somewhere else.

Fun, Sun, and Tequila

We are in South Padre Island. We look out our back RV window and see the ocean. It is a whole maybe 1 block walk to the beach. The weather has been nice temperatures but really windy.
Maggie really likes swimming in the ocean. She chases the waves. It is really cute.
We found a really great place to eat within walking distance. We haven't walked yet because we usually drink toooooo much beer to walk home.
I boggie boarded 2 days. The California waves are to big and these are to small. Anyone under the age of 40 should boggie board in CA and enjoy the bigger waves with what is left of their bodies. Each day I caught 2 good waves. To catch the 2 good waves I had to bob in the water for 45 minutes. I couldn't have caught the waves without swim fins.
We will be here for another week. Texas Spring break starts the 14th so we want to be out of here. Every school including colleges are out that week. They expect 40,000 more people here at that time.
I am scheming on a dove and quail hunt next year in this area. Also looking into selling the Dodge and getting an Chevy Duramax with the Allison automatic tranny. Left knee goes away from time to time clutching the Dodge.

Padre Here We Come

This week has gone by soooooo fast. It is really scary! We are leaving Bit-O-Heaven today to go to the Island. Padre Island that is. We will stay there at least a week. We are camping just over the hill from the beach. The weather is in the 80's but with a lot of wind. We should have sand in every inch of the camper. In Texas they let dogs go on the beach(unlike Florida). Maggie really liked chasing the birds when we went there on Monday. She would get in the water waist deep.
So back to our week. Sunday we went to church here at the RV park. Sort of boring but we have to realize we are almost the youngest people here.
Monday we checked out Padre and paid up for our camping
Tuesday we played golf. Humbling game! Lots of hills and sand traps. They put us with another couple. Felt really sorry for them playing with us.
Yesterday we hung around the camper and then went to Walmart to get supplies.
Need to get ready to go to the Ocean! I must have hit a button to make it underline. Don't know where to go to get it off. Sorry
We will out of computer range for the next week.

Texas Again

We are still in Texas. We went to Progresso, Mexico again yesterday. Drank toooooooo many margaritas. Had to come home and take a long nap. Today it was rainy so we decided to do a museum. Went to The Museum of South Texas. There was a festival going on with people weaving cloth, working with leather, cooking on wood fires and stuff like that. It was really neat.
We will be going to Padre Island on Monday or Tuesday to check out some camping spots.
A couple moved in across the road from us yesterday. So weird they are from Mannford also and Lyn knew the lady from water aerobics. Small world.
We will check in later.
Happy birthday to Jessica. She is now 11. Madisen will have a Birthday next week and will be 14 ! I am not old enough to have a granddaughter that old!

Still in Texas

We are still in Texas. We may not be here long if Maggie doesn't quit crapping in other peoples yards. We got written up today. Two more times and we will get kicked out of the park.
We went to Progresso, Mexico on Saturday. We had a good time and are planning on going back again. One of the borders was closed today because of problems in Mexico. We had already been warned not to go to that town. We may not go for a few days.
We will probably go play golf tomorrow. It is supposed to be 90 degrees . The last two days have been only in th 70's and rainy. It is supposed to be nice for the next week.

Southern Texas

Well, we are in way Southern Texas. In a town called Donna. It is 20 miles west of Harlington. The RV park we are at is huge. We went to the pool today and did our aerobics. I think we will go to Mexico tomorrow and see if we can get cheap prescriptions.
We stayed at a really neat RV park last night. It was on a bay. There was a really long fishing pier.
Will catch up later.

In Texas

We are in Texas now. We just got home from visiting with my 2nd cousin and 3rd cousin. Lloyd told us he is now 83 years old. We have so much in common. He and his wife are both retired school teachers. They lost their house and almost all of their belongings in the hurricane (Ike) last September. They are renting a house now. Their daughter also lost her house, luckly she will be able to put hers back together and hopefully be back in within 4 months.
We will leave the Houston area probably on Wednesday headed for Southern Texas. Hope it will be warm there.
