The Drought is OVER!!

It was looking a little dry around Kerrville when we pulled into the area. Well after yesterday it appears that the drought is over. It rained off and on all night the night before and yesterday the skies opened up and it came down pretty steady all day. The country sure needed it and it was nice to see it happen, but enough already. I guess they probably need more than we had, but WE have had enough.

Yesterday we joined Joe and Sheri on their morning walk and that kept us out of trouble for quite awhile. In fact if you were in the Chat room last night you might think there was a little imagination used in calculating the distance. I think Speedy said we were up to 29 miles yesterday morning, but he wasn't exactly sure. I think we are trying for 30 today, or maybe it was 40. Well it is Texas, you know.

After that long trek Brenda and I headed into town where she found a salon to give her a clip and c...., or something anyway. It sure looks good whatever happened. While she was doing that I had a little exploration around the country and found a route back to the campground that bypassed Kerrville and took me through some pretty country. After she got done we had lunch at the chicken joint near the mall and then headed over to HEB to stock up on the components of Frozen Peanut Butter Pie. That is her contribution to our Breakfast for Dinner meal on Friday night. Now those of you who don't know are in for a taste sensation, and the best part, as my brother Brent figured out, "a calorie is a measure of heat, and if it is frozen, it certainly must be 0." So don't worry about your diets.

Once that was done we came back to the park and hung out. We visited Mark and Dortha in their Phaeton for a while in the afternoon. It certainly is a nice rig and the Tiffin folks have some neat ways of doing things. Brenda did get something special for our new grandbaby, that is due to arrive in June, from Dortha as well.
