We attended Livingston Trade Days, which is about 10 acres of vendors - very neat!
They have social hour EVERY DAY at 4:00...and on Sunday when they don't have Social hour they have ice cream social and talk before you get your ice cream! The social hour is always run by a park member, no manager...they do announcements, tell jokes, welcome new guests, say goodbye to people that are leaving, birthdays and anniversaries, and just generally shoot the bull for about a half hour - then folks sit around and chat after that...they don't seem to 'rush out' :)
For St Patricks Day I cooked a corn beef, cabbage & potatoes, and it was excellent even though I couldn't find any soda bread!
We visited with friends Barbara and Larry Hill - Barbara is at the CARE center allowing Larry to have some respite time. We will see Larry again tomorrow. We did get a tour of CARE and it is amazing how they manage to operate with such a limited budget. Yet one more reason to be an Escapee!
We toured Lake Livingston and it was nice - we met some terrific people, and are enjoying the area. We've had dinner at Catfish King, a lunch at Jack in the Box, and lunch at Big Burrito where they served far too much food...it was all very good!
We had a terrific Taco Salad lunch at the clubhouse for $4 per person, large taco salad, choice of brownie or pineapple upside down cake or sugar free banana pudding, and a drink...yum! We were very full!
Today we drove 70 miles to Nacodoches, TX, primarily to tour the Foretravel RV Factory...let's just say the tour in NO way compared to the tour we got at the Newmar factory in Elkhart, IN. After the tour we visited with Extreme Paint & Graphics and saw some of their terrific work! Wow, those folks are good! Then we went to a place called Auntie Pastas...that I had researched on the web...our gps took us out to a field in the middle of nowhere, but when we finally got back into a place where we had reception, David looked it up on his Droid and we were there in no time. It is a renovated warehouse alongside the rail road tracks, and the food was excellent, and big enough lunch portions to bring home for lunch tomorrow! Yippee, two for 1, I like that!
I'm going to attempt to add some pictures, but if the connection is too slow, I'll try to add them later!
David - love of my life, thanks for helping me make some wonderful memories :)
