These are the questions you get when you haven’t updated your blog in about 4 months and you meet some of your die-hard readers on the road! Well we have been travelling, but not posting….. Duh!
So to back track a little bit….
At the end of October we went to Rayford Crossing RV Resort for the Chili Cook-off and Halloween Costume Contest. We had a couple friends that entered the chili cook-off, but didn’t win anything. Also some of them entered the costume contest with Sue winning the women’s contest. Here are a few pictures.
Richard, our Chili cook-off contestant that placed 7th.
In November we purchased a new 2013 Honda CRV for our tow vehicle.
Also in November we made a campout with the Pelican Allegro group out of Lafayette, Louisiana. The campout was held at Cajun Palms RV Resort in Henderson, Louisiana. The group made an outing to Vermillionville, which is next to the Lafayette Visitor’s Bureau. Here are a few photos from it.
A place to store your piroque.
A Cajun jam session.
For the busy family. No waiting!!!
In the middle of November I took Austin, one of my twin grandsons, to see Paul McCartney in concert at Minute Maid Park (home of the Astros) in Houston. He is a big fan of the Beatles and Paul McCartney even though he is only 10 years old.
For Thanksgiving we took some of the grandkids to Cut n Shoot, Texas for a rally with our Camping Friends RV group. Country Place RV park really decorates the park for the holidays.
We left Lake Charles on January 8th for my cardiologist appointment in Houston that afternoon. I wanted to get off of my blood thinner and I needed to consult with the Dr. He said everything looked good and allowed me to get off of the blood thinner! Yeah!!
We took our time and we headed out to Quartzsite, Arizona. First sight-seeing stop was in Tucson at the Pima Air Museum and the airplane graveyard.
Stealth Bomber!!! Can’t see it can you? Pretty stealth isn’t it!!
We stayed a couple weeks out in the desert in Quartzsite. Sorry no photos (this was our 6th time there, so didn’t take any pictures). We then moved down to Yuma and stayed a couple weeks with our friends Ed and LaVaughn.
Sitting out on their swing and enjoying the sun and no clouds in the sky!!
While we were in Yuma we wen to a Mark Chesnutt (he is country-western singer from Beaumont, Texas) concert at one of the casinos. We last him in concert about 17 years ago at his concert at Harrah’s casino in Lake Charles. He put on a great show, even though is was an outside concert and it was cold! Brr…
We then made it back to Montgomery, Texas on Feb. 21st at the North Conroe KOA for our Lone Star Allegro Club monthly rally. The following weekend we had a rally in Cut n Shoot at Country Place RV park for our Camping Friends RV rally. In between the rallies, I had my 3 month checkup at Methodist Hospital Transplant Center and the checkup went well and I am still on the lung transplant waiting list and still marked as “inactive”, because I am too healthy!
We arrived back in Lake Charles on March 3rd. We have a couple of RV friends that will be passing through LC this month and will stop and visit. We have another couple stopping by next month to visit. So we should be around here for a couple months. We might take the grandkids camping for Easter again like we did last year, but we have to check everyone’s schedule first.
Well that the “Reader Digest Condensed Version” of what we have been doing for the last few months.
Until next time!
