So much to tell...
I missed last week's deer hunt because we had to go back to Texas City. Kim lost her Dad over the weekend and she, unfortunately, had to deal with all the details after he passed. She needed her Momma, so Stella agreed to drive down to help her. I didn't want Stella to have to drive all the way down there by herself, so I took off to drive her down.
We stayed (again) at the terrible Motel 6 in Texas City because it is the only motel that allows pets without a high fee. They are slowly remodeling this place but I hope that we are done with staying there. I won't go into the details of the place, but take my word for it, THE MOTEL 6 IN TEXAS CITY IS A DUMP!!
We made the 6 hour drive back here to Inks Lake on Wednesday without issues, although we did stop by to see our friend Joe French at the Ron Hoover RV dealership in Katy to look at a new model Landmark. No, we didn't buy, but it's a very nice trailer and would be a consideration if we were looking.
On Saturday, Christmas eve, we had a very nice Christmas celebration with friends John and Becky, Barry and Vanny and Don and Linda at the Big Chief RV Park. We all fixed some boiled lobster tails, which were found on sale at the HEB stores in the area, along with some veggie dishes that were shared, and had a great time visiting with our friends.
On Sunday we had another good time with the park hosts that stayed here for Christmas. We had some delicious ham and shared assorted vegetable dishes, followed by card and dice games. A good time was had by all.
There is no deer hunt scheduled for this week, so we are taking some time off, doing odd jobs around the park to earn our keep. The hunters return next week, so more reports and photos will follow.
We continued the Christmas celebration by driving to New Braunfels to visit Grandma Willie Mae, my step-mom. We had a nice visit with her and took her out to eat at one of our favorite restaurants, Cooper's Barbecue where we had the usual delicious meal, enjoying more good conversation with her. We returned here to the park where we met with old friends Mike and Linda who had returned to visit for a few days. They have park hosted here in the past but were just passing through on their way to Mission Tx where we will see them again.
Out stay at Inks has not been without controversy and issues which I won't go into right now, but we've been having a good time with the many friends that we have here. Time will tell how things work out here.
