Today is our last full day in Mission. We will pull out the first thing in the morning and head "home" to Dickinson. For those of you that have just joined, We lived in Dickinson for almost 30 years and I was one of the original police officers there.
We had a bit of a problem with getting a place to stay in Dickinson! We have been staying at the Bay Colony RV Resort and had tried to make a reservation when we left there in March but they wouldn't make one that far out? I don't understand... They are assured of a guest that they know, and we would have gladly left a deposit to reserve a site, but no.....! At any rate, I called on January 11th and spoke to Dave, who identified himself as a manager, and he told me that he would have a place for us to stay when we returned in February. When Stella called a few days ago to check on our site, she was told that they don't have any sites. They said that they may have one guest that may leave but they have a waiting list and our name was not on it. Bummer!!! We probably won't go there again because I HATE to be lied to.
She called around and found another park in Dickinson, the Palms RV Park, and got a site there. We haven't stayed there before but we'll check it out and let you know.
We met a large group of Heartlanders at Furr's Fresh Buffet for their breakfast buffet. We drove over with Dave and Nancy and met Jim and Nancy, Kevin and Nelly, Tom and Marti and four others and had a great breakfast. When we fot through with breakfast, we got some fuel and ran a couple of errands that included a last trip to the Don-Wes flea market.
We returned home and hung out until the Super Bowl began. Actually, I put a few items away before going back inside so I can get a head start on tomorrow's move.
Congratulations to Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos in winning the Super Bowl. I think Peyton was everyone's sentimental favorite. It's good to see him go out a winner!
