Moving south

It's been too long since I've posted, I know.
I spent a few days in Arlington, TX, then went back to Waxahachie for the weekend and the Renaissance again. Mark and Betty bought me a special edition Renaissance t-shirt:

After Scarborough, I drove down to San Antonio to visit Leroy and Linda. I lucked out and both their girls were at their house when I arrived. I bought a t-shirt in support of the Austin Wildcats Semi Professional Women's Arena Soccer team:


And here's the back of the shirt:

About 6 months ago, Leroy and I got into a conversation about nutrition and he's since adopted a vegan diet. He fasts weekly and he works out at the gym on his way to the office 5 days/week. He's inspired me to clean up my diet. I DO feel better on the vegan diet, I have to admit. I don't know that I'll do the strict vegan diet I was on last year, but I'm definitely making changes in that direction.

Renaissance

I'm at the Scarborough Renaissance Festival this weekend in Waxahachie, TX. It's opening weekend and goes through Memorial Day. If you're in the area and decide to go to the fair, check out Wood Harbour where you can pick up a model ship or a whiskey barrel, among other things. Here's a picture of part of the booth with the proprietors - Betty, Kasey and Mark (my bro):


And here's the fuzzy member of the family, Charlie.

Charlie doesn't get to go to the fair, so he and I hang out together during part of the afternoon and go for walks. He's a neat dog. Don't tell him I said that though. He doesn't know he's a dog.

The Lone Star State

I love Texas. Although I'm originally from the east coast, whenever I drive into Texas, I feel like I've arrived home.

I expected to take 2 days to get here to east Texas from NM, but was loving the drive and kept on going until I arrived where my brother and his family are parked in their 40' diesel pusher. My rig looks like a midget next to theirs. With 4 slideouts, the inside of their RV is bigger than some apartments I've been in.


I should probably post at least one picture of the inside of my RV. Here's one that I took with the couch made up as a bed for Debbie when she stayed with me in the RV. The couch actually pulls out even farther, in case you need room for 2 people on it, but this worked just fine for Debbie.

It really is quite comfy.
