Yesterday, we headed over to Buckner to visit DH's mama at the nursing home. Mama has Alzheimer's. She is doing as well as can be expected. At the beginning of our visit she actually seemed to know who we were, but as the day went on she seemed less and less aware. One thing I did notice---she always seems to be happy with a smile on her face. She may not even know where she is at and we may all be strangers to her, but Mama's still smiling, still interacting as best she can. That is the blessing here, to know that whatever world Mama is in at least it seems to be a happy one. She is a special lady and from day one she made me feel apart of this family. I hope her world continues to be a happy and carefree place.

I was in chat room last night and we sure had a good time. It seems most of us are feeling the cold weather these days. Speedy, one of the rv-dreams crew, was there and we are making plans to visit with one another. It will be so nice to see him and his wife, DH and I are really looking forward to it.

We did have a bit of a cold morning to wake up to night before last. It seems our propane tank became empty and for some reason it didn't make the switch over to the other tank as it should have done. DH was outside in the wee hours of the morning switching tanks. There for awhile we thought we had a bigger problem cause he just could not get the gas to flow from the other tank. Finally, he unhooked and than re-hooked the tank and that did it. Gas and then the wonderful, glorious heat came!


  1. Yes...please hang around so we can come visit with you. Sorry we lead such hectic lives but we..unlike..others still are working and have so little time to get things done. We plan on coming out there so we will call and see when would be a good time for us to show up....LOL

  2. Debbie, We're at Braunig Lake RV Resort in Elmendorf which is just south of San Antonio but close enough to visit everything. We'll only be here for another week, then we're heading south for warmer temps.
