Tuesday, April 19 – With all the storms blowing through the southern part of the USA, we decided to change our travel plans....AGAIN! We've already delayed our departure from Livingston, TX by a week. We've been so busy visiting with old friends, we decided to stay until after the Easter weekend.

After talking with a friend here at Rainbow's End and discussing parts of Texas we haven't seen, we decided to visit the Prairie and Lakes region and then head to the Pan Handle Plains in the NW part of the state.

From Livingston, we'll head West to College Station, TX (home of Texas A & M), Waco, San Angelo, Lubbock, Midland, Odessa, Abilene, Amarillo, and then near the end of May (hopefully the weather will have settled by then) to Oklahoma City for the NCAA Softball Super Regionals and Women’s Softball World Series. We'll visit the areas we planned to see in Arkansas, Missouri, and Oklahoma another time.

So instead of tornados, hail, and damaging winds, we'll be on the look-out for grass fires in the draught stricken Texas Plains.....crazy!

We have met a new couple here in the park. They are Jan and Dave.


What a delightful couple from Wisconsin. They have a Tiffin Phaeton exactly like ours, including the same paint scheme, except it is a 2006, one year newer. They stopped by one day to chat, and we have been friends since then. We went over to their last Saturday for happy hour. What a great time.

Wednesday, April 20 – We've been “chillin'” outside recently (no the weather isn’t chilly – 90 humid degrees here in Texas). Marsha has been doing some basket weaving, and Paul is busy watching construction across the street. The people across the way are having a roof built over their parking area. It's a pretty heavy duty carport – much more robust then the average cover around here. The frame is heavy I-Beam, galvanized steel instead of the usual aluminum, that others use. Boy, is it high. They'll have plenty of room to run around on the roof of their 5th-wheel under that beast! That sucker has to cost a pretty penny!




It originally was to take them only three days but they ran into problems on Tuesday. If this thing gets done before we leave on Monday, we will post a picture. We aren’t holding our breath!

We try to take a walk each day around the park.


The flowers are in full bloom.

Magnolia tree

Roses of every color.

Cacti are showing off their colors.


We would like to leave you with a thought…Do you think this is overkill?


Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see y’all back real soon. Have a great day!
