April 21, 2010 Lone Star Corral

Hello all!  As usual, the busier I am the less time I have to blog, and I've been very busy!

Some of the things we've done since I last updated:

Met some internet friends, Phyllis and Len at Little Red Barn steakhouse, which was not little but was RED in San Antonio for a wonderful lunch.  It is so nice to be able to put faces with names.  Wonderful lunch with terrific people!  Unfortunately, shortly after our lunch they were called back to Louisiana to tend to Len's mother who is very ill.  Our prayers are with you my friends!

We had a fantastic Easter potluck here at the campground - and I cooked :)  Yep, I roasted 7 hams for the dinner.  One of the things that they do here that should be implemented more places is that after every event they do a write up on what it was, what was served, the cost and what was charged for the meal, including recipes.  What a great way to help future generations of people preparing events!  We had an Easter Parade with all who wore bonnets - you can see pictures at

We said good-bye for now to good friends Walker and Evelyn Lane who left April 2 to head back to WA for the summer - we'll see them again in the fall.  Evelyn, I'm using your fridge and freezer - thanks so much for allowing us to do that!

We've traveled all over on our days off looking at lovely wildflowers - both David and myself have never been in a state where there are so many - looks like God just dipped his paintbrush and spread it around.  I'll put some pics up later if I can.

The other 'big' news is that we have our first 'great' grandchild.  Aaliyah Marie was born 6 days ago, and we will put some pictures of her up as well - as soon as we can!  Unfortunately mama (Kelsey) and baby are in Grand Junction, CO and we are in D'Hanis, it will be a while until we get to hold her and see her in person.

On Monday we took a long drive, to Eagle Pass where there is a casino and we made a small donation, then to Del Rio, Bracketville (where they filmed the movie The Alamo then explored Garner State Park.  We have reservations there for Sat and Sun nights - we have the Texas State Parks pass so it will be very inexpensive for us - yaaaayyy, we're going camping :) 

All for now - have a great day, we sure will!

To all our friends both far and near - thanks for the memories!


  1. Congratulations on the safe arrival of little Aaliyah Marie. How wonderful for all of you in your family.

    Your Easter dinner sounded great and what a good idea to keep records of what, how, when and how much! Good system.

    Have fun enjoying those wildflower beauties.

  2. Congratulations on the birth of Aalihah Marie. Looking forward to the pics.

    Really like your red hat! Glad you got to meet Len and Phyllis. Always fun to put faces with names.

    Yes, the wildflowers are awesome.

    I'm enjoying your blog.....the fun you are having.

    Hugs, K
