I absolutely have got to begin this blog by thanking Rick Doyle , A.K.A. “Highest Wizard of Technology”. He managed to take control over our evil computer and, from his castle in Palm Springs, fix all of our problems… Rick has proven himself to be a very powerful wizard, and with a flick of his wand managed to win the battle over the computer department of mysteries. Poor Paulette, a quilt and cooking Wizard in her own rite. She nicely tolerated Rick sitting for a couple hours in two days, online with Dennis. (McGyver is a powerful Wizard in many ways, but was overcome by our evil nemesis, Microsoft.). A BID thank you again to” Rick the Techno Wizard”, who enabled us to Skype our grandkids in time for Xmas this year…WOOT! WOOT!
You may have guessed that the reason I haven’t blogged is because the computer was “otherwise in use” for the past couple days…I still have a couple photos I took at Jefferson TX before we left and drove here, Potter’s Creek Canyon Lake, on Wednesday.
I took these pics last Tuesday..a beautiful day. You could have walked across the Lake Jefferson on the fishing boats! And …I had NO idea that Herons sat in trees. The park guy said that they were watching the fishermen to throw fish guts (yuck!)..Or maybe our Birdlady of Blogland, Judy, would know if this is correct!!
Got this photo early Wednesday AM when we got up to leave…That was a gorgeous moon, and my photo doesn’t do it justice!
So, we did arrive here Wednesday about 2PM…We came the back way instead of Interstate…Dennis handed me 3 pages of maps, and a page of directions (including 32 turns)..Egads!! We had Carleton, our annoying and aging GPS hooked up too. BUT, Carleton is getting old and crabby and loses his way A LOT!! I cannot begin to describe the “blue air” inside the GMC at times…Nevertheless, we made it safe and sound…Here is our spot..
We are all set up in site #17. We have been in this site before, and like it because it is up in the woods which protects from the possible high winds off Canyon Lake…We can still see the lake from here though…We love this spot because at Christmas and New Years the people who live here have quite a fireworks display that is visible all around us! We also are getting to see our friends, Ronae and Wayne Sele. We met them right here in 2003, when we were parked in this very spot and they were next to us…We had our Cougar then. Since then, they have gone full-time and been doing it since 2006…(my dream which will never be)..
Parked across from us is quite a lovely motor home…another of my dreams that will never be…
This is a REAL NICE ride, eh? Double axle, no less..And you should see the dog they have..Now I know why they needed this big rig..They have a Great Dane that travels with them!! I wonder if he sleeps in the hide-a-bed…he is almost as tall as me!
I don’t have many more photos yet of our park..I avoided taking many because I knew we had “issues” with our computer and wanted no added pressure on MacGyver and Rick to work through them…Again, we cannot thank Computer Wizard Rick enough for his time working with us..I’m very sure he would much rather have been golfing or swimming in that nice weather than sitting in front of his computer screen looking at us!! RICK DOYLE…YOU DA WIZARD!!!!
