Saturday and Sunday January 28 & 29, 2012-Mission West RV Resort

We didn't have anything to do on Saturday and Sunday so we took the weekend off. We deserve a day off every now and then, so we didn't leave the park. I slept in and didn't have coffee with the guys and only went out to take walks around the park. Tom and Judy went to Mexico one day, so we just stayed home with the doggies.

I haven't said much about this area where we are staying. It is kind of confusing because this park is outside any city limits with the nearest town being Palmview. We are somewhat west of Mission, hence the name Mission West. Mission is a good-sized city of over 77,000 people. Over 81% of the population here is Hispanic, so Spanish is a very popular language used here. It still bothers me that so many stores are so slanted toward the Hispanics but we ARE very near the border.

I researched Wikipedia for notables that came from Mission and learned that Lloyd Bentsen former US Senator and Vice Presidential candidate and Tom Landry, coach of the Dallas Cowboys were the two most recognizable names from this area.

I suppose this is enough of a geography/demographics lesson for now.

So long.
