Texarkana and set up

Well, here we are all set up. It is Friday, Dec. 29th at 10AM...we had a nice frost last night..."nice" isn't the exact word I have for it...I thought we left JACK FROST in Illinois. Anyway, it is suppose to be upper 50's today, so I should count my blessing and not upset the "weather Gods".
We have a great spot on Wright Patman Lake, an army corps park on the Texas side of Texarkana. There are about 12 other campers here..all hoping to stay warmer than where we all came from, and most are from Minnesota or up North like us. The sun is out and we are planning a campfire for tonight. This town has a nice Moose Lodge about 7 miles from here, which we have visited a few times before..Nice people..
We took our walk this morning and I fixed a small breakfast. Den is cooking burgers on the grill for dinner...he cooks, I works for us. This lake is a busy Catfishing place in the spring, as we have found out when we made a new friend in Jimmy "Catfish" Jones a few springs ago. You cannot hardly find a site when Easter break hits the schools around here. All of the "ArkLaTex" ( that's what they call the locals" are camping, fishing and enjoying the spring weather. It is much quieter in December...everyone stays home hunkered down inside.
We plan on leaving here New Year's Day..they call for a cold spell that day and personally, I would like to get further South, toward San Antonio for the next "spell" of frost.
It is now 3PM, 48 degrees and sunny. We took our little walk-about(no we are not in Australia) and Dennis made a tie down for our Hughesnet in case it gets windy..Tonight it's burgers for supper followed by a shot of Nyquil..thanks to my grandchildren for our dripping noses....More tomorrow...Signing off from the ArkLaTex.

  5. Based on my own experiences I am going to make five recommendations that I wish
    someone had made to me to help take the fear out of fitness.
    Even if your small business doesn't have some sort of refrigerator (a rarity today) you can choose vegetable and fruit that do not even require refrigeration. What I tell my clients is that they need to schedule their fitness time like it's a doctor's appointment.

  7. In this competitive world, news information is like
    knowledge recourses that educate us about various world wide activities and the activity within
    the society, even in the surrounding etc. Yet while viewers will inevitably make comparisons between
    Diane Sawyer and Katie Couric, they have very styles, as Diane
    Sawyer has more of a reputation for a 'harder' journalistic style.

    Above all the Hindi news websites is a real boom for the world.
