Adios Until We Meet Again

Wednesday the rugs inside were cleaned and at 5 pm we went to the Margarita hour. I took pigs in the blanket as well as a few taquitos and they got snatched up quickly. We sat with a fellow and his wife that we met last year and a new couple. That's how you make new friends. Pat and Vern were there but at a different table. We don't want to limit ourselves to just one group. Afterwards we took a walk and said goodbye to Trudy and Don. They left today too and we didn't know if we would see them again.

Rick came and washed and waxed the rig on Thursday and I started packing up my clothes as well as the pantry items and miscellaneous things that we need to take back to the house. Ted made a run to Camping World to get a new sewer hose because ours was getting a split and you just can't have that. Our antenna "froze up" and when we tried to raise it for Nick to clean the roof it wouldn't go. Dave climbed up and lubricated it and now it works great.

We were up and ready to pull out about 8:30 this morning. We went to say goodbye to Karen & Dave and Diana & John. We will see all of them this summer in Michigan and then again next year in the valley. Ted signed us up for mid-January to mid-March, double the time we spent this year. I can't remember a month passing by so quickly.

We made our way to Victoria in just under four hours. There were no stops other than at the Immigration Checkpoint where there was a slight back up. We must look like honest Winter Texans because they asked citizenship, if anyone was in the trailer and told us there was a rest area right ahead if we wanted to stop. We said thank you and continued on.

Ted wants to leave by 8:30 tomorrow and that should get us home with the RV put away by no later than 1:30. That will give me a jump on mail, laundry and packing. We hope to get to church at 5:00 so Ted can shoot Sunday to finish up the latest league and I'll finish up what isn't done. If Chris wants to go, we'll take him out to dinner.

Florida bound on Monday.

Long you live and high you'll fly
And smiles you'll give and tears you'll cry
And all you touch and all you see
Is all your life will ever be.
~ Pink Floyd
