Here we are at NORTH RANCH !!! Jan 20. 2008
Our place in North Ranch. (click to enlarge)
We got the word!!! Son Scott will soon get his 3rd and toughest round of Chemo. They are now ready for the preliminary procedures for the Bone Marrow transplant to begin. The dates have been set and My oldest son Mikel and I will fly to Omaha, NE on Jan 30th so this can be started. We were going directly to Omaha from S. Texas, but it works out that we have the time needed to move West to our place in Congress, AZ. Then we will fly from Tucson, where Mikel lives.
We departed from Mission, TX on Thursday Jan 17th. Three days and 1282 miles later we were on our lot at North Ranch RV Park in Congress, AZ.
This week will be a short post. It took me a couple days to get loaded and ready to make the move, now it will take at least a couple days to get situated here. So, I'm going to direct those viewers that do not already get my Travel Journal, to it so you can read about our trip. While your on that web, just click on the area that requests an update. That way each time we have traveling to report you will automatically get notice.....
I will say that we had a GOOD trip. However, you can read more about it here:
See ya all next week. Thanks for dropping by!
It was a GREAT DAY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

All Valley RV Show---Mercedes, TX Jan 10,11 & 12.
The All Valley RV Show was held this week in this BUSY South Texas Valley. This place is full of WINTER Texans.......It was held at the County Fair grounds. We decided to have a PressurePro Booth. About 5 years ago we visited our friends James and Marge Curtis that were staying down here and we attended this RV show. Our good friends and favorite travel companions Louis and Janette Hughes were with us. We NEVER dreamed we would be here now, own an RV lot here and be working this show!!! You just never know what's down the road or around the corner.
The Fair Grounds are 35 miles from our place in Mission, so we got up every morning, drove over and spent 10 hours each day in the booth......Working!!! As usual it was an "experience". You meet a lot of old friends, make new friends and a lot of fun and interesting people.....
This is the fairgrounds and our booth is right inside the door in the tan building on the right.
There were 3 large buildings full of RV's on display with several vendors inside and out. The weather was beautiful all 3 days.
This is our booth where we spent 10 hours each day talking until we were hoarse about the Fantastic product that we feel is one of the greatest SAFETY items in RVing. There were LOTS and LOTS of people at the Show. http://www.pressureprosystem.com/
All in All, it was a good show. It gave us a change of pace for a few days to keep our life challenging plus interesting and we made a couple bucks.
That being said, its nice to be back HOME. Needless to say it "wore" us out!!!! But that doesn't take much anymore.........:-)
Now to get all this STUFF put away and get back to NORMAL, whatever that is!!!!
One special pleasant surprise at this show, I saw an old school mate who I actually roomed with back in school . WOW, that was over 50 years ago!!!!!!! A special "HI" to Tom Boots and his wife. It was GREAT seeing you again! Both of their parents had ranches right near ours in the Sandhills of Nebraska.
We are Tuckered Out, but Oh it WAS A GREAT DAY !!!!!!!!!
See ya' all next week, maybe from Arizona. We don't know for sure right now.....

Christmas Day 2007
It was a tradition for years after I moved to Florida in 1977 that every Christmas Day I would drive to the Beach and have a glass of Champagne. Sort of a celebration of being OUT of the cold country and just give Thanks for LIFE. The last few years since we have been in the Arizona Desert during Christmas we haven't been able to do that.
Well since we are only about 80 miles from the Gulf Of Mexico this year here in Mission, TX., we decided to renew that tradition! We drove to South Padre Island and walked in the SAND. It was a beautiful day and a nice drive.
Here are of few pictures of the area.
The Beaches are not near as pretty as Northwest Florida, but the water and the weather was perfect. It was an enjoyable day.....
Click on any of the pictures to enlarge them. We enjoyed our little trip of a couple hundred miles and it brought back memories of the past. We are both getting a little "itchy" to do some traveling as we have SAT about as long as we can handle. Fuel prices really put a crimp on us, so we just have to PARK more. Hard for us to do, cause we like to MOVE. We have a 3 day RV Rally to work here in the Rio Grande Valley on Jan 10-11-&-12Th where we have a booth with our www.PressureProSystem.com business. Then shortly thereafter we plan to move on to our RV lot in Arizona, that's about 1200 miles..........So we'll be MOVIN ON soon!!!!!!
Thanks for stopping by, we'll see you next Sunday.
It was a GREAT DAY!!!!!!
