|The mail contained Christmas cards, magazines, a package for Dad from work and a book Mama ordered.|
Last night, the folks went out to eat and did some shopping. Mama was excited because she found the Snapple drink mix she has been trying to find. She tried to order it online, but was not able to do so. She found that the Walmarts here carry it and sure enough she found it. She bought three boxes.
|What did you bring us? Mmmmm.....chicken marsala!|
|Oh, boy! A new toy!|
|It's a snake!|
|Oh, boy! It's just like my dog that I lost!|
|I love it!|
|Squeak, Squeak, Squeak.|
The Greyhound Who Is A Happy Camper!

Yesterday, Mama discovered apps to her favorite radio stations from home. She put them on her tablet and now she can listen to things from back home. She has been listening to the app that has the police scanner from back home and she enjoys that. It is not as good as her real police scanner, but it's a taste of home just the same. She has set up her police scanner for here, but she doesn't find it to be quite as interesting.
It is a rainy day here. If we didn't know better, it looks like it could snow. We just got back from our walk. It really bothers us when dogs walk behind us. Does it bother anyone else? We have to keep turning around to see what they are up to. This morning, we just pulled off to the side to let the dog pass us.

|The yarn is from our stay in Indiana. It is blue, brown and cream. Mama says it is so easy to use and very soft.|
|This is our toy box. We broke out our bag of toys last week. Mama thought I was bored, but I really just needed to pee.|

Tonight is grocery shopping night. The folks are going to try the Super Target. Tomorrow, they will look at motor homes again.
The Greyhound Who Sleeps Good On Rainy Days

Yesterday, we were out walking and the park manager got in a golf cart and chased us down. He asked Mama if she was using bags. Mama promptly showed him a full bag. I guess she answered that question. BOL! They talked about many people not using bags. Mama complained about the dog run being so nasty. He agreed and said he doesn't know what to do about it.

Mama ordered our mail yesterday, so we should have it tomorrow. We think we may have a Christmas card or two and hopefully some magazines. Our bully sticks will be here on Monday!
Mama finally updated the restaurant blog. She ate Greek food for the first time over the weekend. Yia Yia Mary's Greek Kitchen.
The Greyhound Who Found Out Chinese Turkey Does Not Like Him

Mama woke us up at 4 a.m. yesterday. We thought it was Santa, but it was just Mama. She wanted to get us outside before the storms hit. We ended up not having storms which was good, but getting up at 4 a.m. was nuts. We had rain for about an hour and, of course, it started when we were on a walk around 10 a.m. We were trying to run home and Mama couldn't keep up. We kept stopping to shake the rain off and then we would take off again dragging Mama along. Dad said we were probably entertainment to a lot of people yesterday.
The folks went out for a late lunch yesterday. The first plan was Chinese, but then Mama decided she wanted Italian. The Italian place had an one and half hour wait, so they had Chinese.
|We had leftovers! Can you guess what we had?|
|It is duck! Dad ordered half a duck. Mama said he did it because of that movie.|
|Mama had General Tso Chicken. It had jalapenos in it.|
|The flame didn't show up in the picture taken with the camera, but did with the cell phone.|

Our day was in the 80's until around 4 p.m. and our temperatures dropped fast. The wind was really high. I got scared and Mama thought it was due to the wind. It was actually because our smoke alarm battery was dying and it beeped. I am scared of the beep. Is anyone else scared of beeps?
Today, our weather is cool, but the sun is out. Our motor home heats up when the sun is out, so we will probably be able to turn off our heater later today.
We hope everyone had a nice holiday. Happy Boxing Day to our friends who celebrate it.

|"Oh boy! This is going to be fun!"|
|Texas charges a fee of $7 per adult. Greyhounds are free.|
We decided to do an easy 1/2 mile walk around the lake.
|Scout didn't want to go. Was she scared of the alligators, venomous snakes or thinking there might be stairs?|
|She is asking Dad to take her back to the car.|
|Mama took charge of Scout and off we went. Yes, I'm wearing my boot. My foot still hurts from time to time.|
|Lots of birds.|
|More birds. Mama really needs a new camera, but Santa is not bringing her one.|
|"Come on, Mama!"|
|Scout puts her foot where other animals have put theirs.|
|Dad said it was like the Animal Walk of Fame. BOL!|
|Okay, enough turtles!|
|A view of the lake.|

We had a fun time and we were very tired when we got home.
We were supposed to bake cookies with Mama today, but it is almost 80 degrees. We are already running our air conditioning, so we will wait to use our oven for a day when it is colder like tomorrow afternoon. We are supposed to get bad storms tomorrow morning and then it will turn cooler.
Merry Christmas everyone!
The Greyhound Who Walked Among The Alligators

Mama had the car yesterday, so she went shopping. She didn't really buy anything exciting. She ate at Five Guys and wasn't impressed. She had a cheeseburger, fries and a drink for $10. She had eaten at one in St. Louis and thought it was better. She picked Dad up from work and they ate at Panda Express for dinner. She was very impressed with the food. She was so excited that she forgot to take pictures. Panda Express is a chain restaurant. You choose your side item and then you can either have two or three entrees. She chose fried rice as her side and Mushroom Chicken and Shanghai Angus Steak as her entrees. She loved it all. Dad had eaten at one in Kansas City and said he thought it was great. Mama definitely wants to go back.
Dad brought home a gift from work. He told Mama to open it before they went grocery shopping so that they knew what snacks not to buy.
|What could it be? Cookies?|
