Around noon Friday the 27th our dear friends Mark and Dortha from Ft.Worth arrived in Canton. We were so glad to see them as the last time we saw them was at The Gathering at Cowtown RV Park last Thanksgiving.
After they got set up, we had a long visit to catch up on all the things they have been doing since our last visit and their new Granddaughter Kinley. Joe and Sherrie joined us that evening for some Chinese food at Chens Buffet. What a great time and visit we had reminiscing when we all did Canton together.
Saturday morning we were off to Tyler TX for some shopping. We first went to Southern RV looking for some beading rope to repair our window awing's. They did not have what we needed so we went to Home Depot where we purchased a package of weed eater string to use as the beading string to hold the fabric of the awing in the c-channel. After we finished up their we went to Bed & Bath for the girls to do their thing. We then went to Juicy’ s for lunch and had excellent hamburgers, onion rings and pinto beans. The meal was just great and the onion rings were exceptionally good.
Joe and Sherrie had told us about a new store concept that Brookshire's had recently had their grand opening. They had stocked the store with what ever they do. The store was very similar to Central Market and they named it Fresh by Brookshire's.
Let me tell you this place will blow your mind. Talking about great looking veggies, meat and can goods they really do a bang up job of presenting the product as attested by the following photos:
After we finished our shopping we headed back to Canton. The girls fixed an excellent salad and we ate chicken strips they picked up at Walmart. More fun visiting and talking about the things we've done together over the years we've known them.
Before dark my handyman Mark was able to fix our awing fabric that came out of it's track about three inches. Thanks Mark for all the things you do for me. He also was able to fix his which had come out of it's channel on one end.
Sunday morning we drove over to Joe and Sherrie's place to visit and see their new Allegro Open Road motorhome and the red barn they had put up to park their home in. Joe is quite a carpenter.
He is very knowledgeable about building and you could see the fruit of his abilities in the things he has done around is place. I need to invite him up to Lone Star when we get moved to our new base.
We had a wonderful visit with them and all returned to Canton.
Monday morning came and brought a little sadness to Sandy and I as our friends Mark and Dortha were departing back to Ft. Worth. All I can add is we had a great three day visit with a lot of laughs and great stories about our friendship we've built over the years. Looking forward to when we can do this again.
Let us not forget our veterans and those on active duty protecting our liberties and freedom. And Especially those that have made the maximum sacrifice and gave their lives. God bless America!
Until next time. . . .MtnAire Travlers.
