Well here we are again Christmas Time not Happy Holidays it’s Christmas.
We have decorated the RV with many lights and a red illuminated Happy Christmas sign. We are not the most decorated RV site the lady next door wins hands down, gee she has lights all over, the joke is that planes may think it’s a runway and land.


Well here we are again Christmas Time not Happy Holidays it’s Christmas.
We have decorated the RV with many lights and a red illuminated Happy Christmas sign. We are not the most decorated RV site the lady next door wins hands down, gee she has lights all over, the joke is that planes may think it’s a runway and land.
The park has erected many lights actually the owner (David) and myself put them up. In the indoor swimming pool area is a garden and I was told that’s your area do what ever you want to. My comment back was, “oh good, it’ll be like Blackpool Illuminations”, to which David says, “Eh”. After an explanation he understood what I was talking about. So now the lights in the swimming pool are Blackpool Illumination Lights.
We have bought a Pop-Up a 1999 Coleman/Fleetwood model, it has a slide out where the table and chairs are and a push out in the kitchen. This was a insurance claim so was damaged on the roof which was repaired by the person we bought it from. Many items were missing from it, Gas Bottles, Battery, Water Hose, and the cable connecting to the vehicle was damaged so for the past 2 weeks I’ve been getting it into shape. I had the wheel bearings repacked and the brakes checked, plus replaced the tyres with new ones. It’s a general rule of thumb that once tyres are 5 years old they should be replaced regardless of wear and most RV tyres never get worn out by mileage.
So we are very close to our first trip with the Pop-Up and in January we will be going to Mercedes in the Valley for a RV show, this will give us an opportunity to nip over the border into Mexico for a dentist visit, plus buy more drugs and booze at lower prices.
In December we are having Jeanne and Brian visit us as they wend there way from California to Washington DC. Brian is a Major in the USAAF and is being transferred to a new posting, Jeanne is Cassandra’s daughter and my Step-daughter, of course by marriage.
So that’s about it for now and apart from a visit to Smithy’s in Lockhart, a famous BBQ smoked rib place, life has been very quiet. Oh, Square Dancing every Thursday and Cassandra goes to rehearsal in Wimberley on a Tuesday evening, all is quiet.
