More snow...

It was such a beautiful morning. The air was cold and crisp, the sun was bright and warm. Steam rose from the lake. It truly felt like winter that morning! D & B

SNOW in SE Texas!

Snow in Southeast Texas! We were surprised with some of the white stuff! We always have a colder than normal winter after a hurricane, and we got it. It was really fun since we hardly ever see any snow. The day warmed up and all of the snow has melted away. But it was fun while it lasted! D & B

Goodbye old friend...

Bubba is washing our motor home, for she is leaving us for a new home. A young couple with 2 children will now have all the fun she can provide. We were sad to see her go, but she needs to be on the road again. Goodbye old friend.... D & B

First Monday Trade Days

If you have ever been to Canton, you know this gate. I spent 3 days shopping and still didn't see it all! This is a twice yearly trip. If you can't find it at First Monday you don't need it! B & D

PS. Bubba chose not to come, he just wanted me to bring him home some hammer handles and some gecko toes.

Stephanie & Les clamming

Les took Stephanie clamming, she didn't know what she was getting into. Nothing like getting your face in the muddy sand. These are horse neck clams and they are about 3 feet deep, so you have to dig fast and deep. Never knew our daughter was so adventuress. D & B

Dog is Safeway
