Sunday August 22, 2010-Alamo Fiesta RV Resort

We got up this morning all rested and refreshed from two days of rest and decided to get out some today. We had a good breakfast here in the trailer and after cleaning up, drove over to Kerrville to the Gibson's Discount store there. As far as I know, its the only store left in Texas. I worked at the Gibson's store in LaMarque and Seabrook back in the early 70's so going into this store brings back many memories. This store is set up like the old stores were, "stack it high and sell it low" was their motto back then. Gibson was the first large discount marketer and at one time was the second largest store chain (behind Sears), but their methods of holding up payments for suppliers finally caught up with them and the chain went under.

I wanted to go back to Kerrville to see if just driving through the town would cause the low coolant light to come back on again, but it didn't. Going up, at the beginning of our trip and coming back down, at the end of the trip, the light had come on, but we made it up and back to Boerne without a problem today.

We went to the grocery store and stocked up on some groceries and came back home to put them away. After a short time at home, we went to eat some mexican food at the El Rio Restaurant. The food was unremarkable, but after a long time without any spicy food, it tasted great to us. We came on back home for the evening, and when we turned into the park I saw a truck and trailer parked in the check-in area and guess who it was? Our good friends Harry and Judy had come in a day early. We had expected them tomorrow, but they said when they got to Ozona, about 175 miles out, they decided to just come on down. We are glad to see them and look forward to spending some time with them.

So long.
