Well, as we begin our final month in South Texas, a few things have changed. First, Tom moved from the golf course to IT (Information Technology), and he loves it. His job is to troubleshoot and repair any of the 800+ Internet and cable TV installations in the park.
Next, Mary has really taken advantage of some of the many amenities offered here at Llano Grande. From shaping and polishing gemstones into beautiful jewelry at the Rock Shop, to knitting stocking caps for needy babies, to making bead jewelry.
A few weeks ago we attended an Oak Ridge Boys concert here at Llano Grande. They really sounded great and we were told they were just inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. OOM PAPA OOM PAPA OM PAPA MOW MOW!
This week sees us returning to South Padre Island for our 2nd Segway tour. This time we get down to the beach and more around town. We’ll have 4 couples this time: Tom & Mary, Ed & Cindy, Lee & Anita, and joining our SPI friends Corky and Dave.
We have really gotten to like it down here so you could say we are now officially Winter Texans and probably will be next year also.
When we leave here the end of this month, our summer headquarters will be just north of Detroit Lakes, Minnesota, at a smaller RV park. We will be there through Labor Day, then back to Mercedes. Our plan is to meander through Central Texas, Louisiana, Alabama, Tennessee, Missouri, Iowa and Minnesota on our journey to Detroit Lakes, taking in some of the sights and a few big-league ballgames too.
