Saturday January 19, 2013-Retama Village

Boy, the weather has been great here for a few days. It has been cool at night and warms into the 70's during the day. We decided to go to the Don-Wes Flea Market which is in Donna TX. This market is about 5% of the Canton market, but it was still large enough to tire Michael and Kelly out. I had contacted them and they met us at the flea market. We bought a few items, fruit and veggies, a belt for me and one for Michael, but Donna, now that Donna knows how to shop! She came with a list of items she needed both for herself and for friends and as far as I know, she found everything. I had been planning to buy a belt when we go to Mexico but I found one here for about the same price and bought it!

I guess the coolest thing we did today was find Tramp's little sister. When we crossed the street to go to the fruit stands, we all split up while shopping and Ted and Donna soon came to find me, telling me that they had found another dog. This was in almost exactly the same place that Tramp came from a couple of years ago. When I got there, sure enough, the dog was an exact likeness for Tramp. I spoke with the man who was selling her (named Lola) and learned that she is in fact Tramp's little sister. The man seemed to remember him, but I know who she is. She looked so sad, but it could have been because she has been in a box all day with people looking and petting her all day. Stella and I both feel sorry for her but we don't want another dog. Two is plenty!

We soon left Michael and Kelly, who were still shopping and went to eat at Furr's Fresh Buffet, another of our favorites. That place was packed!! We've never seen it as full before but the food is good, the service is good and the prices reasonable. After finishing up our meal, we all returned home. Ted and Donna were going to play games tonight and they invited us, but we were too tired and didn't want to get out again, so we stayed home.

We are planning a trip to Mexico next week, so you may want to stay tuned.

So long.

Jay, see you were tired after the time at the flea market also. Kelly and I had a great time there. The weather was great and the company was too. Can't wait to go to Mexico!
