The construction begins...

Ok, so the construction started...everything was going fine till the light company dug up the main trunk line of the water to the whole neighborhood...and then cut the cable line....the only thing they didn't hit was the sewer line...Thank goodness! That would have stunk. But today we started to poured the concrete. We will finish up tomorrow and then start hooking up electricity, water and sewer. The external hookups for 2 RV's are in and will be
ready for use as soon as the concrete
has seasoned. Bubba is doing his supervisory job and fussing about how much everything is costing...much more than he planned. But everything will really be nice when it all gets done!

Garage Sale Tree

Bubba had to repent... he was not happy when I found this Christmas tree at a garage sale in Oregon for $5.00. Yes, we had to haul it 2600 miles back to Texas for our daughter. He did admit it was a good deal and it is beautiful. I love it when I'm right!

Oh No!

Oh me, Oh my...the Tillamook ice cream has gone bye bye. The 6 half gallons of Udderly Chocolate we brought home has disappeared! We will sorely miss it. It is a sad day indeed.

You do know who ate most of it?

San Jacinto Monument

The San Jacinto monument is just across the ship channel from us. The birth place of the Republic of Texas...where the Texicans beat Santa Anna and the Mexicans for Texas independence...after the Alamo and Goliad. Bubba's great-great grandfather was there!

OK, we are home 2 days and Dorothy ends up in the emergency room. Our daughters dog, Glory, bit her. Eight hours later, there are red streaks going up her arm. Time for a tetanus shot and some IV antibiotics. Are we having fun yet???
