Monday, February  27 – The last few days have just flown by. Monday was Marsha's last dentist appointment in Mexico. Friends, Donna, Norm and Carole, went with us. They had several items to purchase and wanted to have a Marguerita or two with us. Carole is moving to Pahrump, NV this Saturday, so it was sort of a good bye party also.

We went outside this evening and saw the planets all lined up. From our photo, it looks like the moon is full, but it was only a Crescent Moon.

Wednesday, February 29 - Our last night to attend a social. Since it was Sadie Hawkins day, they played an abbreviated version of the Newly Wed game. Our friends, Donna, Norma, Angie and Rick were among the seven couples that participated.


There were some disagreements between the couples, but no couple had an altercation of any kind. Our friends, Sandy and Dave, were the winners.

Just a little beauty from around the park.




It was another wonderful, memory-filled winter. A very special "Thank You" to our dear friends, Rick and Angie. We love you dearly! Miss you already.

Thursday, March 1OFF WE GO!!! We've been in the state of Texas since October 29, 2011 and it's time to head West. We still have a couple more days to spend in Texas. We'll be over-nighting in Eagles Pass, and then spending two nights at Davis State Park to visit the McDonald Observatory. Then a run through El Paso, TX and we'll be in New Mexico for another over-nighter on our way to Tucson, AZ.

We were anxious to get moving this morning and hit the road soon after daylight (about 7:30). We traveled the entire day along the southern Texas border with Mexico. Once past Laredo we were in the wide open spaces. But there's oil out here! I think we were the ONLY non-oiler working rig on the road. Truck after truck flew by servicing the many thousands of oil wells in this area.

A bit hazy on the road today.road

We had to stop once at an inspection point.customs-stop

Housing is definitely in short supply. There are numerous RV Parks (I'm using the term generously) where workers are parked one after another in a dirt field. There are temporary restaurants set up and trailers for rent for long term workers. Money is just flowing out of the ground!!!


We arrived at the Kickapoo Lucky Eagle Casino in Eagle Pass, TX, shortly after noon. We have full hook-ups but are really camped in a parking lot. The website said camping was free but nope....cost was $15/night. Oh well, we're only here one night.

Not any place to write home about!parking



The Casino has NO flashing lights…the outside isn't much but the inside is very nice. casino

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