Saturday, November 28 – Hasn't been much happening here in Houston, Texas. We love this time of year with NCAA football and have spent several Saturdays with Carrie and Michael catching our favorite teams. Carrie has recently moved to a new apartment so we get to help spend her money furnishing her new place. 

We are at our “Southern home” here at the Houston Elks Lodge and have many friends in the campground and members of the Lodge. We feel like we are “returning home” when we pull into our site here at the Lodge campground. Mostly we are relaxing and unwinding from our whirlwind tour of Florida.

Thanksgiving was again wonderful.

This is one of the few years Carrie did not have a big dinner at her apartment for friends.  She recently moved and wasn't ready for a big party in her new digs. 

This is Carrie’s turkey. Yummmmmmmy!

We enjoyed the day with a smaller group of Carrie’s friends at Spencer's beautiful home.

Marsha will be heading to Ohio on December 3 to spend an extended Christmas holiday with family and friends. Paul and Carrie will join her much closer to Christmas for the family holiday. Paul stays back in Houston to care for our fur kid, Bella, and Carrie, of course, has work responsibilities.

After returning to Houston around the first of the year, we will head to Mission, Texas, in the Rio Grande Valley for about a month. We'll enjoy visiting with friends from many past years in “The Valley.”  We also plan on visits to Nuevo Progresso to see the dentist to get some annual work done.  This is a great birding area, so we hope to spend several days hiking and getting some outdoor exercise.

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