Our Final Day At Cowtown

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. We  had a shock when we woke up this morning to a little rain. The wind was out of the North 20-25 mph and boy was it cold. When you opened the door you had to hang on for dear life as the wind would literately pull the door from your hand.
Most of us hung out in our own rigs for most of the day. It was just to cold to venture out. I made all the necessary preparations for our departure in the morning for Canton today as our low in the morning will be in the low 20's with a wind chill in the teens. I did not want to have to do those outside chores in the morning. 
This evening Brenda and Sandy each made their Taco Soup (a break from tradition). We all gathered at the club house for our social hour and Thanksgiving meal. Both soups were just outstanding along with the corn bread muffins, salad and deserts.

imageAfter dinner the guys settled in and watched the Saints and Cowboy game. To bad the Cowboys fell a little short. After the game was over we all departed to our rigs for the night to watch the Aggie and Longhorn game. While the guys watched football the  ladies did their imagething.
I can say  we have certainly enjoyed our stay here and this being our first to meet up with these friends it was certainly worth every minute. Hope we can do it again soon.


Now I can not wrap this blog up without mentioning our first encounter with Meg. She is one of the smartest, high energy dog’s I’ve ever been around.

image She belongs to John and Brenda as most of you know. I was cautioned about not playing sticks with her but old softy me could not resist. I played one time with her just to be able to say I did and to watch those big brown eyes really soften you up. Now how does one refuse this.


See those big brown eyes and if you will look closely you will see a strand of grass on John’s shoe just begging me to pick it up and throw it.

We had one injury this week as Joe dropped a chopper on his big toe and here it is. Please send him all the get well wishes you can as I'm sure he will appreciate it.


Until next time….MtnAire Travlers.


  1. Is Meg an Akita? My brother's is also full of energy and does amazing tricks. She's so fun to be around.
    And JOE...those must be the coolest shoes/boots I've ever seen. Hope no one step on that toe!
    Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. It was a pleasure meeting you folks this week Weldon and Sandy and we have enjoyed this gathering, even the weather ya'll brought in to make us Canadians feel at home.

  3. Meg is a border collie, but a short haired one.
