That was FAST...Retama is SOLD!!

Yep, our place at Retama Village in Mission, TX is sold. At least, we have a check in our hand for “good faith” money and the sales contract has been signed and faxed. We are just waiting for the paperwork to be completed.

Many thanks to our friends Mark and Dale Bruss for showing it for us. They must have done a SUPER job.  We didn’t even have the "For Sale" sign up a month. We were only there for a month this year and we showed it 2 or 3 times. Mark and Dale showed it at least twice after we headed West and it sold a week after we were gone.

So Retama, like our Teton 5Th Wheel and Volvo Truck, is HISTORY!! Our world is a changing world and it's been a whirlwind the last year. This doesn't mean we won’t be back to Retama. We have many good friends there that we think the world of and we know lots of folks there that we can rent a spot from for a week, a month or for the winter. It really is a beautiful RV Resort and if your RV’n around seeing the county, you owe it to yourself to check it out.  Here's a link to the Rental website:  Retama Rentals

Now we only have 2 places.....Custer, SD and Congress, AZ.   Like I said, we are downsizing. We enjoy these two places so much, we don’t need anymore to worry about and we continue to thank the Lord for what he has provided us.

Have you been to town lately?????  Well, CHRISTMAS is a COMING!! Wow, the stores are PACKED!! I don’t care if I ever go back but Ms Pat informs me that we are going again Tuesday.  Ugh!!  This time we’ll try Prescott but I have a feeling it's busy too!

Time to get in the "SPIRIT".  Christmas stuff is going up all over our house and Jingle Bells is playing on the stereo! So it's time for us to wish you all a MERRY CHRISTMAS.

It was a GREAT WEEK!!!

Thanks for stopping by.

God Bless you all.

Yep, I understand that 'UGH' part of that Christmas shopping stuff. We stopped all that a long time ago & it is no longer an issue for us. Glad to be out of all that commercial hype but I still do enjoy hearing some of the Christmas carols each year. Congrats on the Texas sale. I think we all have a tendency to lighten the load a bit as we age. Makes good sense:))

Congrats on the Retama sale! Looks like it's a done deal!

Merry Christmas to you, Pat and to Ms. Megabyte2 as well.

Jerry and Suzy said...

Fabuloso! Congratulations.

Christmas shopping starts and ends, at least for us, at the rack of gift cards. They come in many sizes, they are always welcome gifts, and they don't cost much to ship.

Congratulations to you both. We have two lots now, so one is always available for you to stay.
Does MS Megabyte 2 get any Christmas presents? MS Chloe got a stocking and a new dog bed this year. Her dog bed is nicer than our bed!

Congrats on the sale and best of luck shopping on Tuesday!!!

Congrats on the sale of the Retama Site!
Like you said, you can always rent a spot from one of the other owners if you want to go back to be with your friends there.
No sense of paying property taxes all over the country, LOL!

Randy and Pam Warner said...

Yes that was fast! Congratulations! Hope you all have a very Merry Christmas.

Molly and Bob said...

Congrats on your sale and Merry Christmas! Big 'ol hugs to both of you!

If going to Prescott, check out this guy's photography studio. He is an Airstreamer, and a wonderful photographer. Scroll down his page to see some of his work. Would make great XMAS presents. Gene S.
