Tomorrow is the big day. I can almost smell the food a cookin'! This will be the 4TH year we have spent Thanksgiving with our friends at Retama village down here in South Texas.
This year there will be about 14 of us getting together and enjoying Thanksgiving Dinner together. Everyone is bringing at least one or two dishes. Jim is deep frying a big Turkey, Sue is baking 2 more and Dale is cooking a Ham. There will be plenty of GREAT food and I’m getting hungry just thinking about it! :-)
This year we will be having ourThanksgiving Dinner at David and Sue’s brand NEW home.
David and Sue built this beautiful home here in Retama during the summer. They had an “open house” about a week ago and did an excellent job designing and decorating their home. It is NICE! It will be an honor to have Thanksgiving in their NEW HOME!!
This is Jim and Hazel’s new home down the street. (above) They built it over the summer and just moved in. It’s also a beauty!! We haven't had the tour of the inside yet but hope to do so before we leave.
WOW!! Everybody has been busy. This is Tom and Gayle’s new home. People are building Homes, Casitas and finishing Coach Houses all over Retama! All this was done since we left here in February. You can see Jim and Hazel’s home in the background.
These folks started with an RV lot like ours and like it here so much, they are building a house or an RV Port Casita home. The prices are right here and you can't go wrong investing in a place here. Most of these folks are keeping their RV lot and renting it out to Winter Texans.
At the other end of the street they are still building more. Soon this place will be all filled up and at the rate they are going, it won’t be long.
Now we are really getting excited. By this time next week, we will be on the road and somewhere near El Paso or maybe even in ARIZONA somewhere. The weather has been great. I hope it holds!
Sunday will most likely be my last Blog from Retama for this year.
It is a GREAT WEEK!!!!
