Yesterday we ran into Corpus Christi and tried to buy a screen for Matt and Michelle and the girls to watch movies on at the farm but it appears that it can only be ordered online and to do that you need a US credit card and a US address even though we just wanted it delivered to the store for pickup. Strange rules but I guess a bed sheet will have to do until Target and Walmart recognize that Visa does have cards from other places than the United States of America. Sorry kids. While in there we managed to stop at Olive Garden for the Soup and Salad special, reasonable price and good for you too. But enough of that good for you stuff for the Lang's farewell dinner we went back to the China "A" Buffet and had the all you can eat seafood and Chinese food. Yep and some of those 8 flavours of ice cream too.
When they were ready to leave this morning they had a gift for Brenda and she was tickled pink. This sign had apparently caught her eye on her earlier shopping trip with Denice so Denice must have gone back and got it for her. We don't actually drink much wine but I am sure we use a little for cooking now and then. The rest just evaporates.
And those who have been following our blog for a while will recognize the vase on the left but in her package this morning was a bowl with a lid that we watched Dennis craft out of a piece of firewood here at the campground. They sure are beautiful works of art and will be a cherished part of our memories of the great times we spent with Langs this winter.
And here they are all hooked up and ready to break trail back into that Northern Homeland of ours. We will be following along in a few days so Dennis let us know where the drifts get high. Safe travels.
This a shot of the canal that services all the houses in the neighbourhood we walk through each day on our morning stroll. Some beautiful places but I always wonder how they fare when the hurricanes come through. I think I would like a house on a hill along way from the sea.
