Is the Craziness Over Yet?

Lobby of the St James Hotel in Cimarron, NM and Yes, it's Haunted!

Famous guest of the hotel
We ventured over to Red River
My babies...Crystal leaving to move on over to Magnolia, Texas...They were going to stay until that Saturday morning but...things progressed pretty fast and they left that Friday evening after work...everyone a little teary eyed and moving very fast!  We got through it...
Granddaughter Samantha...Went with her to a doctor's appointment yesterday because of a lump in her breast scare...Thank God in Heaven it is benign....
The goose that laid several eggs...


THEN...there's the NEW Motor home.  Granted, it's nice to have, to roam the countryside without having to stop somewhere to make sandwiches or...well, you know...breaks.  Lets just do it this way...List.  I love list.

1.  Ford V10 chassis...nice...Air conditioner quit cooling...there's a leak in the line so freon? all leaked out.
2.  We are in New Mexico at 9800 ft...it's 38 degrees and the furnace stops working.  Thank goodness we brought along a plug in heater which really didn't help all that much.  Can you say popsicles?
3.  Windows wouldn't close all the way on my side...
4.  Water leak in the windshield...
5.  The levelers wouldn't retract...that's right...wouldn't go back up, leaving us stranded in the RV park for a second night.  Thankful for the kindness and help from the KOA park manager!  He didn't know us from Adam...pitched us his personal truck keys and said, there's a Walmart down the road...you might be needing groceries???  Wow...just great people.
Called a repairman to get them retracted and headed on back to Waco...The last photo is of Hubby taking it back to the dealership to begin repairs.  Gads, what a month...
Did we enjoy ANY of it?  Yes...being in the total quietness at Jane and Henry's, looking at the Elk from the veranda...drinking a coffee...not thinking about much...yep, that was nice.

Happy Trails...






Just a quick post to let y'all know I'm still breathing!  We've been busy planning a trip to New Mexico to visit friends.  There have been some issues we've had to iron out on the coach and it can be a bit aggravating!  One of the least is this...What Is It For?  It's in the freezer on the left side...see it?  What in the world do I put there?Hahaaaa....gads....
Hope you all are doing good...Crystal (daughter) leaves the 24th of this month so we are taking a quick trip before she and Will (grandson) hit the road to their new home outside of Houston.  I'm now in the "acceptance" mode...you know how it is if your kiddo moves away.  I don't care if it IS 2 and a half hours away, she's still "not down the road".  BUTT....I'm being good about it and really DO wish nothing but rainbows and love for them all.  Moms being Moms I guess.....she's my baby....:o)
Anyway, hope you all are behaving and will be coming by for a visit...
