Wow!!! Time Fly's

We have been so busy chasing our tails, opps, no that was the cat, but we have been going in circles. Having a great time doing it though.

Last Saturday, 23rd, we had bridge in the morning, and Chuck was sweating bullets trying to remember all that he had learned in the lessons. Then we met up with “the dreamers” for lunch at the Chicken House Opry. Must say that we are eating at some high end places lately. Here we lined up and got our lunch and basically stood at tables to eat. But for 5 dollars it covered lunch for two, and included drinks, yeah, not a complaint was heard. Show was okay, but not nearly as good as the time we went last year.

Sunday, we met up at Mac & Netters for a Mexican feast. And everyone was surprised at the appearance of Rod and Deb. They decided that they would just drop down a few hundred miles on their way to San Antonio for a few weeks of D&D. (Dine and Drink) What RV’ers are pro’s at. When we first started full timing I laughed and said my goal was to eat my way across the USA. Well, been there, done that! Now I’m paying the price with carrots sticks and celery.

Monday, took us to Mexico, with Donna & Nolan, lunch at the Red Snapper, I had a great shrimp cocktail, while the others had fried or garlic shrimp. Then we wondered off to find a place for pedicures and a barber for Nolan. Poor Chuck, his feet are so sensitive that he laughed the whole time they were working on him. We made it back to the RV in time to get to the clubhouse and play up & down the river. Fast game, Lots of fun.

Wednesday we had bridge lessons in the morning. Turned the truck in for some warranty work. Thursday, we had a golf tournament for the Senior Olympics, which started, as far as I was concerned, late Tuesday. We had to be at the course by 7:15, which meant leaving here at a quarter till. And of course the weather man got it wrong again, it was raining, well, at least a heavy mist, and windy. But with a 140 players there was no way it would be cancelled, but the rain did go away, where as the wind only increased through out the day. It got so bad that one of the carts in our group actually had there roof blow off! Some how we did have a good time, did not place among the winners, but we all have a t-shirt saying we are Olympians.

Friday was spent doing nothing, waiting on the truck they had promised would be ready the day before. Finally about 6 we got to pick it up, run to the store and that ends the week.

Senior Road Trip
While on a road trip, an elderly couple stopped at a roadside restaurant for lunch. After finishing their meal, they left the restaurant, and resumed their trip. When leaving, the elderly woman unknowingly left her glasses on the table, and she didn't miss them until they had been driving for about forty minutes. By then, to add to the aggravation, they had to travel quite a distance before they could find a place to turn around, in order to return to the restaurant to retrieve her glasses.
All the way back, the elderly husband became the classic grouchy old man. He fussed and complained, and scolded his wife relentlessly during the entire return drive. The more he chided her, the more agitated he became. He just wouldn't let up for a single minute. To her relief, they finally arrived at the restaurant. As the woman got out of the car, and hurried inside to retrieve her glasses, the old geezer yelled to her, "While you're in there, you might as well get my hat and the credit card."

Back to the Future.......
