Sunday February 14, 2016-Palms RV Park

This will be another catch-up post. We have spent the past few days spending time with friends and family and enjoying being back in our "home" area.

Friday we met our friends Tommy and Susan at the Topwater Grill in nearby San Leon. They brought some of our old friends Warren & Judy and Jim & Rita from Rayford Crossing where we used to live for a long time. We love the fresh seafood at the grill and we had a great time with our friends. We all ate way too much, but it sure was good!

Saturday we went to the Houston RV Show in the NRG Center. I contacted our friendly Heartland Dealer, Ron Hoover RV in Houston and worked out a deal with them to have a table for the Heartland Owners club and to also talk to prospective customers about our own Landmark and living in it full time. We have done this several times in the past with good results and today was no exception. Our table was set up between the two Landmark that were on display. One of them was a Charleston model that we liked and almost bought and we talked to many people as they came by. Several came back to look again and we heard them say that they really like the Landmarks. I talked to several people about joining the Heartland forum and club and gave out some handout material and business cards.

It was also a good day to run into friends at the RV show. Tommy, Susan and Bill came by but I was gone at the time, so I didn't get to see them. Mike and Patrice came by and are looking at the Landmark Newport. Chip and Bunky, friends from Inks Lake, came by while visiting the show. They didn't know we were there and of course, we had no idea that they would be coming to the show, but it was good to see them. I later ran into Rick Pearcy, an old friend that I worked with at the Dickinson Police Dept. many years ago. It was good to see him again after many years.

Sunday we met Phil & Carol, their daughter Lindsay, husband Mark and their two sons and brand new daughter, Carol's mother and father Clifford and Kathryn and her brother and his family at the Topwater Grill. I know, we just ate there a couple of days ago, but the good is very good and we love seafood, so it was worth it. Not only was it a celebration of Valentine's Day, but tomorrow will be Clifford and Kathryn's 68th anniversary. Wow, what a milestone!

We went by to visit Kim and family and to meet her new cat Bluebell. I got the boys to help me get the portable porch out of the back of my truck. We won't be using it this summer and I just wanted the clutter out of the truck for awhile. I also picked up my ladder, so I can do stuff on the roof and sides of the trailer. Now to get to Stella's doctor and find out what we'll be able to do this summer. Wish us luck...

So long.
