R.I.P. Butterbean Carpenter

Where are we today ?

R.I.P. James "Butterbean" Carpenter

Such a wonderful couple,
Dec 4th 2013
          While reading a blog this morning RvSue and her canine crew I noticed a comment leading to another blog Our Rv Adventures  and was shocked to read that Butterbean had bean killed in a tragic traffic accident on Dec 11th. 2013.

          We met Butterbean and Joyce on Dec. 4th this year and had been communicating with him for quite a long time. He made comments on many of your blogs (and many other bloggers as well) over the years. We were camped at Glen Rose Texas heading towards Midland Texas and they had invited us to stay at their Ranch near Valero Texas, which happened to be right on the  route we were taking. 

A quote from one of his emails was:
" We ain't never seen any REAL CANADIAN PEOPLES !!!!"

         So with a comment like that we just had to meet them.  Agreed to meet for lunch at Big O's BBQ restaurant in Valero Texas. First thing they did was park their vehicle and he said come here I have to give you a big ole hug. Such a super couple and really so glad that we did get to meet him and his wife in person.

         He will be fondly remembered and sadly missed.
