We had a great dinner and fun super bowl – and we were snuggled back in our condo on wheels by 9pm, and asleep before 10!Monday morning we slept in – and then we got ready and went to a little hole in the wall place called ‘Gonzales’ burgers – where the burgers were so huge we shared them and it was plenty to eat! They must be ½ pounders! Of course, we also got onion rings and fries! You would never guess it is a restaurant – there are NO signs, and they do NO advertising – they open at 10:30 for orders and that place was packed by 11:30…people were standing waiting on orders and places to sit!!! This is a definite do-over.
When we left there we went to Target, where I found my black and red rugs for the motorhome without rubber backing! Woohoo! It doesn’t take much to excite me :)We then went to the movies and saw Red Tails – I highly recommend it if you like movies about war. We certainly had tears in our eyes a time or two! Of course we stopped at DQ and his ice cream for dinner…
Tuesday we had a plan and we pretty much stuck to it! We went to the little bakery/restaurant I discovered and had a fantastic breakfast, Ron and Kathy also decided it was a keeper. The plan was to catch a boat tour of the Rio Grande river, and we had reservations for noon. While having breakfast, they called and said the boat was full, would we come at 2…so we went home a while, then off to the river tour. Remember, click on the pics to make them larger :)
It was $18 for two of us, and well worth the money. We glided down the middle and got pics of both the Mexican and American side of the river. The guide said that occasionally they got stopped and everyone had to produce their picture ID’s, but that did not happen to us! He was very informative and there are a lot of disaster pictures that we took – a hurricane came through in 2007 (Alexander) and changed the course of the river somewhat, and took out a restaurant/giftshop/boat tour place, and much of a park that had just been completed. Also a big Mexican park that was very well attended was actually cut in half by the river. I’ll post some pics here but they in no way do justice to what we saw!
After the boat tour we had decided we wanted to do a Mongolian Grill, as Ron and Kathy had never been to one, and we had seen one on our travels up and down Hwy 83 Expressway. So off we went, and when we got there they were not open, only doing ‘training’ – so we followed David’s camera and went off to another one – and it was closed too! We ended up eating at a Texas Roadhouse, and it was very good – also we had enough for another entire meal with the addition of a salad later.
We got back to LSC about 3:30, went to Social hour at 4, and attended a potato bake and brown bag auction – it was great fun but I forgot the camera!Thursday we went to San Antonio for the appointment for David’s ears – there were no surgeons available, so we go back on the 27th. We DID go to a Mongolian BBQ for an early dinner and it was fantastic – it was HuHot and we will go there again!
Friday we just stayed home and tried to get some paperwork done – Saturday we were supposed to go to the Winter Texan lunch in Uvalde, we drove over there and could not find the place…we had lunch and shopped at Wal-Mart and came home – Sunday we got up to freezing temps, and David has some kind of stomach bug, lots of pain and gas, so we did nothing and it was a good day to do that!
That brings us up to date once again!
