Wednesday, November 2 – We joined Anytime Fitness and had our first workout session this morning.


We belonged to a health club before becoming full-time RV'ers and have missed the workouts. Since we will be here for two months and in the Rio Grande Valley (RVG) for the next two months, we decided to take advantage of Anytime Fitness locations it both areas. Actually, Anytime Fitness has 1600 locations throughout the USA, so we hope to find workout locations often during our travels. We pay on a monthly basis, so we can put our membership on hold if we have trouble finding a convenient locations to workout during our travels.




Although we keep pretty active with hikes and bike riding, it's been awhile since either of us did any weight training or elliptical training, so we'll see how sore we are tomorrow. We are off to a good start so there is no stopping now!


Friday, November 4 – We got up and ready to work out. We were met with this…


YES…that is frost. Amazing, because just four hours later, we were in the the 80s.  Just a fluke for this time of year. The weather has been awesome.


Saturday, November 5 - We met up with our daughter, Carrie, this morning to catch up on her life and enjoy some college football games. She recently returned from Bogota, Columbia, and had some gifts for us. Thanks sweetie! She gave mom a beautiful necklace, ear rings, and bracelet, and for dad she had a sample of fresh ground Colombian coffee. She also gave us a nice Christmas ornament to hang on our tree.

Our first stop of the day was to find a Western shirt we could wear at a RESONSABLE price. Carrie said she knew of this really cool resale store called…


Paul and I looked at each and thought…sure we will find a shirt in here!

Well, to our amazement Paul bought TWO shirts and Marsha one. How does that saying go…Don't judge a book by its cover…or in other words….don't judge a store by its name.

We did find a few thousand things we could live without.


Now why exactly would be need this?

We went to one of the many sports bars on Washington Street in Houston to watch the game and enjoy each others' company. One of Carrie's favorite places is Tapps.


Being such a competitive family, of course, we had to mix in several games of corn hole. Paul won the first two games, and Carrie the second. Marsha complained that her RED bags were so flimsy…of course due to this she ended up in last the first game. Well, Paul had heard enough. He switched bags with her to prove it wasn't the bag. You guessed it…Paul came in last the last game. Could it be the RED bags?

What form…



It's so nice to be able to enjoy the outdoors in shorts and t-shirts in November...ahhhhh!

Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see ya'll back real soon. Have a great day!
