We drove the 280 miles yesterday from Georgetown to Jefferson, TX. We jumped off I-35 at Waco, and went cross country from there. About 1/2 hour into the drive, we noticed that Carlton wasn’t speaking. Either he was angry with us, or he is allergic to Mountain Cedar..I poked at him, checked the preferences, and discovered the SOMEONE had turned his sound all the way down…probably in an attempt to temporarily muzzle him. He is getting very bossy. Honestly, it was NOT me!! (I have been tempted to give him a sex change, turning him into Bonnie on the GPS…) So, I turned up his volume, albeit reluctantly, and hung him back up on our windshield…We must have totally blown his mind, because shortly after we got here, his suction holder fell off the windshield, lying in a heap on our dash..Serves him right.
The weather was 80 and sunny, and we got started putting out our “stuff”…McGyver getting both dishes set up, me working on the inside. I have a few “homey” touches that I like to put outside..candles, a tablecloth, wind catchers, birdfeeders, and I laid them all out on the picnic table to work on later. McGyver was getting our Direct TV dish set up when I went out to decorate…and could NOT find my tablecloth..I looked everywhere!! I came inside and checked again, glancing outside to see if Den had moved it…and here is what I saw..
That black, purple and green thing you see under McGyver’s knee, is non other than…the missing tablecloth….which has now become a kneeling pad for Den’s bad knee. There are times to open your mouth, and times NOT to say a thing… and I know when to keep my big yap shut….and after all the stuff Den does to get us techno-ready, this was one of those times.
Here is our site all set up, tablecloth and all..and just LOOK at that day, wouldja!!
It’s Spring Break here in East Texas…Families, boats, tent rooms, skate boards, and scooters…and we are darn glad we reserved this site back in January…Those kids were having a ball in the lake…but, I’ll bet that water was COLD! Ours and one other site were the only ones vacant here on the lake….I took the photos below this morning, when the entire campgrounds smelled of bacon, sausage, pancakes and eggs.…..and lots of it being cooked outside!!
We discovered that besides myself and McGyver, there are lots of other “loons” here too!
We had our coffee outside this morning, after our walk. McGyver has a new cardio trainer “ap” on his Samsung Captivate..Soooo, now I can tell you for a fact that we walked 2.15 miles, burned 255 calories each (though I think I burned more, my legs are shorter). We walked 3.6 mph..taking us 35 min. and 58 seconds..How’s that for techno “over the top”??? If you thought we were boring before, just wait!!!!
We were accompanied at coffee by Mr. Mockingbird….He must have done his aria for at least 1/2 hour in the tree at our site..and even took the time our to pose for a photo..What a diva!
Sunset last night was gorgeous…because of the time change we had to stay up later, until 8PM, to get the full affect. But a campfire and a cocktail made it worth while.
.See what you think…
Nope, I did NOT enhance with these Picasa…
…and “Life is Good” here at Lake of the Pines, Texas!!
