Saturday December 5, 2009-Rayford Crossing

We didn't have too many at coffee this morning because most of the guys didn't know about it I guess. One new guy, our friend Ed, came down and Jerry didn't have to work this morning, so he came down too.

Today was the park-sponsored brunch. The park served Mimosas and Bloody Marys and the individuals coming to the meal brought a potluck breakfast. It was good but I learned that I don't really care for Mimosas. I guess it's the champagne bubbles that I don't like. We had a nice visit with Jim and his wife Janet who were neighbors of Pete and Jean. Jim had a kidney transplant but seems to be fully recovered.

Today turned out to be a great day weatherwise. It stayed pretty cool all day long but there was a bright sun shining. As long as you stayed in the sun, it wasn't bad at all to be outside. I went for a walk in the morning but we stayed in most of the day.

We went to Saltgrass Steakhouse with Tommy and Susan for supper. We went pretty early to avoid the weekend crowd and had a very nice meal. We stopped off at HEB to buy some Blue Bell ice cream and some ice before we returned to the park and Tommy dropped us off about four spaces from our site. We all had a chuckle over this because we had just told him to go to his motorhome because we needed to walk after eating. He said no, he would drop us off at our trailer, but then stopped too soon, so we had to walk anyway. We didn't have to walk far, but it was funny at the time.

Tommy invited us over for some Pina Coladas using the homemade vanilla ice cream. Wow, were they good! He used a Pina Colada mix that he ordered off the Internet and they were GREAT!!! We stayed over at their motorhome until about 8:30 and let me tell you, it didn't take me long to go to sleep after Tommy's great dessert. We're glad they're back at Rayford. Wouldn't it be nice if they sold their house and stayed up here? Susan works right across the freeway, so her drive would only take fifteen minutes or so, she could come home for lunch and the savings on gas and maintenance would pay a lot of the cost of the park. We'll work on that...

So long.
