DATE NIGHT FOR D & D..WHO COULD ASK FOR MORE?

  Saturday night has be our “date night” since Dennis and I were dating. We have always been firm believers that keeping the conversation going always seems easier away from the cooking, dishes, cleaning and sometimes HoHum trappings of home.  As we got older, we found it to be something we  REALLY enjoyed, especially when we had 3 rugrats running around the house.   No matter how stressed the week got, I always held date night out there…knowing we would find some time together without the little voices of “mommy, daddy, mommy, daddy”…It was good quality “together” time that we needed. So now, even though our kids are long gone from the house, we still find time for date night…and yes, I STILL look forward to it..(It actually gives me a reason to“fox up” (as best I can ) at least once a week.

WE BOTH CLEAN UP PRETTY WELL….ONCE A WEEK…..

Today, Sunday, I made us some biscuits and gravy for breakfast and McGuyver went out to put some antifreeze in the Hiker..It is suppose to get really cold by the end of next week..like…in the ‘teens…OOOOOH GOODY.

…ABOVE ARE PHOTOS FROM OUR COUGAR, ALL DUDED UP FOR CHRISTMAS, 2005.  SHE WAS THE PRECURSOR TO OUR HIKER….SHE WAS A GOOD ‘OL GIRL, EXCEPT SHE HAD 4 BLOWOUTS IN 2 YEARS…THIS WAS NOT GOOD, BUT SHE WAS OUR VERY FIRST CAMPER…AND IT ONLY TOOK US ONE TRIP TO REALIZE THIS WAS “LIVING THE DREAM” FOR US.

The Salt Lick BBQ, just outside Austin TX….December, 2005….YUMMY!!

             

The photos below were taken in the old historic town of San Ygnacio, South of Zapata, TX.

The town was started by the first home , built in 1830 by Jesus Trevino.  It was built to establish a fort for family and neighbors against the invading Indians.

..Above are the remainders of the fort ….In the photo on the right, you will notice on the top of the building above the door, there is an old sundial, that was placed there in 1851…The old lady in front of it was placed there in January, 2006.

I guess you can see that I am totally “on the road” in my head.  We are still determined to get back in the Hiker and hightail it South ASAP! 

 

Tomorrow McGuyver and I will celebrate our 41st wedding anniversary…..ARE YA READY FOR THIS?????

LORDY, GOD…! MCGUYVER WAS LOOKING LIKE A CROSS BETWEEN JACK NICHOLSON AND DRACULA…AND I HAVE NO IDEA WHO THAT YOUNG INNOCENT GIRL IS!!

Sorry, but I just couldn’t resist….and it all seems like these were taken yesterday.    OK, so now I am waxing nostalgic again…It is a creepy, gloomy day out today….but it is warming up….I see the distinct possibility of a campfire…AND cocktail hour could come early.

STAY TUNED…
