Almost 5 Years!

Five Years

Next Saturday is our 5th anniversary of hitting the road!  We are leaving this location next Saturday for our next destination.  Where are we going?  Come back next weekend to find out. We also have an exciting announcement to make on our anniversary.

Park News

The pool has finally been emptied and cleaned.  It was looking pretty nasty.  

That is not a cover.  That is what the pool looked like.  It had a thick goo on top. 

New Rugs and Decorations

Our new rugs arrived last weekend.  The folks really like how they look.

This was the before.  This was taken two years ago.  If they were still looking this good, we would have kept them.  They had three years of dirt and sand in them.  They no longer looked nice even after vacuuming.  Whenever we folded them up on travel days, there was a layer of sand under them. 

Here are the new rugs:

Mom added some plants to the kitchen.  She purchased them at Hobby Lobby.  Half off this week.

Food Photos

Since we are leaving the area, the folks have been eating at their favorite places.  These photos are from Pappasito's.

Needed Maintenance

A motor home that has been here for five years left on Sunday.  They were in a pull-thru site but since the trees had not been trimmed, they grew over the driveway.  The motor home had to be backed out instead of pulling through.  They did move a small Class C in this week for a night, but they even had trouble with the trees.  Will they trim them?  We may never know.

Instant Pot

Mom still uses her Instant Pot several times a week.  Her favorite thing this week was green, potatoes and bacon. It took four minutes.  Grandma used to make it over a campfire.  Mom said it tasted the same.

Park Happenings

We have been staying inside during the day because I don't like the heat.  We still hear gossip even without looking for it.  We were surprised to hear of a few affairs.  One woman left her husband for another woman.  We knew the women were together but didn't realize that she was married previously.

Our messy neighbor has decided to feed the feral cats.  There are several people who do this, but they do it away from the campers.  Our neighbor has decided to feed them in her driveway.  The cats have decided to open up our trash bags which we sit out in the morning.  Mom is not happy about that.

Piper, my bull terrier friend, has gotten a few fire ant bites.  She had them really bad last year.  Mom's bites are basically healed up.  It took about ten days.

Fire Ants

There are fire ants in the the dog park!  Mom stepped on their nest which wasn't very smart.  She got bit on both feet.  She told one of the workers about the nest and she said they come out when it rains.  She put something on them and they seem to be gone.  She told Mom how to treat the bites.  Mom did as she said, but then she looked it up on the Internet and what she told her to do was all wrong.  She is still dealing with the bites after five days.  She is glad that I didn't step on them.  Piper, another dog here, got bit on her face and feet last summer and her Mom said it took her a long time to get over them.  Piper is a Bull Terrier.  She has a big nose like me, but she is much shorter.  She weighs the same as me though.  Her Mom says she is a tank.

RV Maintenance

A few weeks ago, we had a guy who works on RVs come out to change our oil, gas filter and oil in our generator. Our motor home takes a lot of oil.  How much did it cost?  $500 something.  We were thrilled because last year, we drove it to a place in Oklahoma and had to wait outside while they did all the work.  They charged us $85 more than what we paid this year.  It was nice to just sit inside while the work was being done.

Campground Happenings

I continue to watch the squirrels and they watch me.

The pool has not opened yet.  We took this photo last week.

We took this photo around 5 a.m.  We will take one in daylight the next time we go out.  Yes, it is really brown now.  

Big Mail Day Tomorrow

Tomorrow, we are getting our regular mail, plus a new blender, new living room and kitchen rugs and and some clothes for Mom. It is a good thing Mom will have the Jeep since there is no way the big rug will fit on the scooter.  BOL!   The blender is for me.  Mom makes me frosty treats and yesterday, my blender started smoking!  Dad said "Order that boy a new blender!"  Mom ordered it last night.  I can't be without my frosty treats.


Buddy has traveled 1,000 miles.  It really doesn't seem like much considering all the places he has traveled.  He put the most miles on him in California.  Mom really enjoyed riding him through the Amish roads in Lancaster County.  There are some places that we have stayed that Mom couldn't ride him and that is why his mileage is so low.  When she can ride him, she does.  


Our greyhound friend, Veil, went to the Rainbow Bridge on Monday.  We shared a birthday. She was a year older than me.  It will be sad celebrating my birthday without her this year. She is now with her brother, Beckett who died on Valentine's Day in 2015.  She is greatly missed by her family and friends.

Excitement In The Hood Today

Eviction Number 1

It seems that we missed excitement that went on Monday and Tuesday, but we got to see some today. Apparently on Monday, a guy that we really didn't like was told he was being evicted.  We didn't like him because he was always drunk, played his music really loud and had huge bonfires in his fire pit.  We always felt sorry for the people that were parked next to him.  He was in the section for short-term people.  We never understood why. He should have been in our section, but we are glad he wasn't.  On Monday, the manager told him that his fire pit needed to be 20' away from his neighbor.  He argued about it and got in the manager's face and the manager evicted him.  I guess it wasn't immediate though.  The folks and I walked past his place on Monday night and he was yelling that he wanted the old man out and the lady behind him out, etc.  We didn't know at that point that he was evicted.  Dad said to Mom that he is not exempt from being evicted especially since he was in a FEMA trailer.  Those are not supposed to be allowed but there are a few here.  Yesterday, he was seen measuring the fire pits that are here to see if they were 20' away.  The fire pits are only supplied by the campground in the deluxe areas.  The other ones are just people who have brought them in for their own use, like his.  He then got drunk and decided he was going to start a huge bonfire.  He likes to burn 2x4 boards.  The police were called and he was taken away and was told he was not allowed back in the park.  His wife pleaded with management to let him in to get the trailer out because she knew it was not going to be easy to make it travel worthy.  They agreed and that is what we saw this morning.  He was cussing and yelling.  He said he was suing corporate and management.  We don't really know what he thinks he can sue about.  Our contract says we can be evicted at any time by management.  We finally saw him leave after three hours.  He left behind a lawnmower, smoker and just a lot of junk.  The park has been buzzing about him today.  I think everyone is happy to see him gone. Mom is really happy.  We feel sorry for his wife.

Eviction Number 2

We told you about the other FEMA trailer that we thought was going to be removed.  Well, it happened last night.  The mattress is gone too.

This kitty lost his shelter with the removal of the trailer  He is under there.


Sunday was a rainy day here.  We had 2".  Dad had to drive to Houston for a meeting.  He decided to wait to leave until the afternoon since it was stormy there.  He was only gone one night.  I didn't even realize he was on a trip.  I thought he was just working a night shift. 

Ducks enjoyed the rain.
Tree damage from storms last week.
Spring time!

Instant Pot Happenings

Mom made mashed potatoes, fettuccine carbonara and apple crisp recently.  Everything was good.
