Home in Texas

We really were looking forward to getting back to Rainbows End in Livingston. We will be here until after Thanksgiving. While we are usually in Yuma, AZ by the beginning of November,  this year we will be later but for a great reason. Charles' step-daughter Kristen is getting married in Houston! We are so happy for her and Roy! We have not met him yet, but feel we know him through FB. It does make it nice.
So, what have we been doing at home? After only a week, we had to go to Shreveport for a week to work our last rally for 2014, an FMCA Area rally. We stayed at my cousin Donnie's dealer c.g. with 50 amp fhu. Yes, we took the big RV and it was seventh heaven after living in Stubby for 5 1/2 months! We knew we missed our home on wheels, but didn't realize just how much. We got to see all the cousins and 1 dear friend while there, even though we were very busy working and the weather was miserably hot for 3 days with no a/c in the building. We did make the best of our time. We camped with our friends the Lawrences so it was great catching up with them and getting to see Nicky, their Yorkie. Our cousins all had us for fabulous meals and parties during the week and weekend. It was so much fun! We also were able to meet the monument people at the family plot to set the marker for my Mom and brother. They did a beautiful job. It is Texas pink granite. We came back to Livingston to a very busy work week. This weekend has been go-go but in a fun way. We attended a BBQ fundraiser for the Knights of Columbus and garage sale. One of our neighbors is the pit boss and cooked some killer brisket and ribs! Tomorrow, here at the park, we have an Ice Cream Social where I will  sell tickets and register Escapees for our Fright Fest celebration that starts in a week. On top of all that, we have 3 Dr. appointments in Houston this next week too. And of course, running my business never stops! So, even though we aren't on the road, we are quite busy. Charles has many projects to keep him occupied as well. Weather is perfect! Cool a.m. and p.m. and warm in between. Perfect for coffee on our porch and a glass of wine in the evenings.
Hope everyone has a great week!
