Saturday February 2, 2013-Retama Village

This morning, several of us met at Furr's Fresh Buffet for their buffet breakfast. Seven couples met and had breakfast and spent time together, laughing and chatting. I wish more of our heartland friends had come, but it's their loss! We all had a great time and enjoyed the huge buffet.  I highly recommend Furr's for any meal but the breakfast is especially good.

We went over to Jim and Nancy's place in the afternoon for a quick meal of hot dogs with beans and some fried cabbage that Stella had made. It was a delicious quick meal, but I don't think any of us were really all that hungry after the big breakfast, but we would have been really hungry later if we hadn't eaten.

Ted and Donna came by to pick us up to see an entertainer named Rainey, who did an imitation of Patsy Cline. She did a pretty good job and we enjoyed singing along with the old songs that she sang. We met Kevin and Nelly, who had also come over to the Chimney Rock RV Park for the performance. This park is right on the Rio Grande river and there is a large group of Border Patrol vehicles parked here. I guess this is one of their meeting points for patrolling the river. There is a levee on the east side of this park with a narrow road coming into the park. I don't think I'd want to stay here but it might be worth going back to during the day to look at it further.

Today had been a very nice day.

So long.
