We woke to another chilly morning down here but had made plans with Tom to go eat the big breakfast buffet at Furr's this morning. When I went outside just before 8, Tom was up and rinsing off his truck but Judy was still in bed and not feeling well. Tom still wanted to go eat, so off we went. After a delicious breakfast we decided to stop by the Don-Wes flea market again to see if any more of the vendors had opened yet. They hadn't, but we should have known when we drove up into the parking lot and there were on a handful of cars there at ten o'clock in the morning. We didn't stay long but did ask again about some card shufflers that Donna wanted for her card-playing group. A nice lady who owns a game shop told me that the only shufflers that came with metal "fingers" that held the cards never worked and that she had to send them back. She said she has been selling toys and games there for about 30 years (yikes!) so she should know what works and what doesn't.
We stopped off at the grocery store to pick up some fresh meat so Stella could fix her famous goulash later this afternoon for us. We returned home in time to watch football for the rest of the afternoon. After watching the Houston Texans win their game, I went outside to find that Judy was feeling a bit better and was sitting outside. The weather is just about perfect right now, so we all sat out under the clear blue skies and enjoyed chatting. Stella's goulash was ready to eat soon, so the four of us sat outside our trailer and ate supper. Judy and Tom enjoyed the meal and took enough of the leftovers for another good meal. I know how good that soup is much better the day after it has been prepared, and am sure that they will enjoy it. There isn't a much better way to get over a cold or the flu than with home made soup.
Tom showed me how to lubricate the new pin box on the trailer and later he and I made very short work of taking the porch and steps down in preparation for leaving tomorrow. We will be sad to leave but at the same time, glad to be returning to see our friends at Rayford again. The winter Texans are coming in soon and some are already there. We will miss them after this season.
