Friday, February 22 – We had a “Farewell-To-Friends” dinner on Friday as Jane and Joe were going to be leaving the RGV on Sunday. We went to a wonderful barbeque restaurant – 492 BBQ.

492 BBQ

We enjoyed delicious Baby-Back Ribs, Chicken, Jalapeno Sausage, Brisket, and a variety of side dishes. Everything was fantastic.

The barbeque is done outback by a couple of guys. Man did that area smell GOOD!

There is an outdoor dining area where a fellow was busy painting a mural on the wall.

Angie and Rick kindly picked up the tab as a thank you for work Paul and Joe did around their house here in Leisure Valley. Thank you very much! Of course, the friendship we shared was the best part! Joe and Jane and Angie and Rick will be surely missed as we prepare to head out ourselves on March 1.

Saturday, February 23 – Marsha had her “Adios Amigos” social hour(s) today. Not having a place for her guests to get out of the hot sun, Jan and Barry were kind enough to have the get together at there place.

The boys.
the guys

Marsha spent two days preparing food for the event......”enough to feed the entire neighborhood,” Paul said. Surprisingly, most everything disappeared. Paul thinks she must have given it away out the back door just to prove him wrong......again! Marsha…."I don't think so, Paul!"

The ladies.

She had Calzones, sausage stuffed peppers, rice pilaf, cinnamon pull-apart, orange-pineapple cake, lemon bars, vegetable tray, Mexican fruit tray, homemade bread, etc. The ladies all pitched in to help her. Interesting drinks were available also, like Beer Margaritas and Champagne coolers.

Everybody had a great time and enjoyed the wonderful food. It's true…It's the friends you meet along the way that make RVing such an interesting lifestyle. We'll sure miss these friends!

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


  1. Paul should realize the amount of food Winter Texans are capable of putting away, that's all we do.

  2. Don't head north to soon, you may get stuck in the snow.

  3. Quite the spread you put on ... no wonder it all disappeared (despite what Paul says).

  4. Marsha can come cook for us any time she chooses. Good friends...good food. What more can we ask for?

  5. Look at you paul with two pretty ladies!! Your the man..

  6. Awe...that BBQ sure looked delicious! What a fun time with all your friends. I can't believe how much you cooked, Marsha! Do you have more counter space in in the 5er? With such limited space in the motor home, I'm good with making only two dishes at a time. Your menu sounded great!

  7. How do you manage to find all the best food like you do? Hope you don't run into any of that nasty snowy weather on your way home. Take care! We mentioned your names to the Brights and they chuckled at the memory. Why do people always do that?

  8. Your get-togethers sound like great fun. It's wonderful to meet great folks on the road, isn't it?

  9. Interesting looking BBQ cook shed. I've always heard that what we do on our bbq's is grilling and is not to be compared to true BBQ'ing.

    Great looking party and food sounded awesome. I'll bet Paul helped some of those dishes to disappear! I sure would have.

  10. You sure seem to be having a lot of parties down there. There also seems to be a lot of eating going on. Enjoy yourselves!

  11. nice job on the food! all sounded very delicious!!


Thanks for leaving us a comment. We enjoy reading them. Have a great day!
