What a wonderful day, not hot, but sunny, and a bit warmer than back home we will take it!

Where are we today ?
       It was cold last night outside, but we toasty warm inside. Like the weather guesser said it got down to 26f (-3c). We disconnected our water hose just in case. Hey we even had a window open a bit (as usual) and a wonderful nights sleep.
       A few issues with ma, she was admitted to the hospital the other day in pain, and needed an operation, (bowel blockage) it was considered an emergency operation and was done at midnight last night. Sis is there standing by and as of tonight sounds like she is recovering very quickly still in ICU and wants to go home. It will take a bit before that will happen, but that is a good sign for being 87 years old.
          So with being still kinda cold here think it got up to 42f was not a great day for shorts or sitting outside. Did get quite a few walkabouts done and even a small project building a foot rest for Suzie while we are driving. I made one way back in 2006 but for some reason now it needs to be a bit higher. Maybe her legs getting shorter?
          One of my walkabouts spotted this wonderful looking plant, I do believe it is mistletoe, the real thing! Check the pics below.
so wonderful looking in real life
         Spotted these guys working on a custom golf cart, being towed to another location.
            A map of this campground, it is huge! Would be a zoo in the summer months.
        On my walkabouts went by the adult pool and clubhouse, very nice. Was closed for the season though.
adult pool and hot tub
       Back into the bush located more cabins, really kind nice areas.
hideaway Havens and pool
Cajun Chalets and pool
A- frame Cabins
      Right across from us in the pond spotted these ducks, The white one has a huge puffy bunch on his head, never seen one like that before.
so nice and quiet here, love it
        About 2 pm we noticed his motorhome pull in towing a car and looking for a site. 2 hours later they finally found one. Disconnected the tow dolly with car on it and left it on the road. At 7:30 tonight I saw them still setting up and the car and tow dolly still sitting on the road. This is what we do for entertainment sometimes. 2 hours to find a site and more than 3 hours to set up? We do all that in about 30 minutes. Can't see them rving very long.
        Still cold out but want to use our Weber Q tonight grill some tilapia fillets and yellow peppers,  add to a salad and we enjoyed another wonderful supper.
Our Weber Q 100 comes through again
very tasty
          Cold here?  Yes, but we had some sunshine. Not a sit outside kinda day but a few walkabouts works too. No matter what the day just kinda flew on by.
         Thanks again for stopping by. We are on the road in the morning not too far,  for a new experience gotta visit Betty's Rv park in Abbeville La. We have heard so much about it from fellow rv'er's. Come back and see how we made out.

  4. Kathy and I will be praying for a speedy recovery for your mom. Glad your sister is there to help her along.
    That sounds like a Newbie RVer taking that long to set up. Hope they took the car off the Dolly before they unhooked otherwise they're going to have a heck of a time reconnecting.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  6. It's good that you have your sister back to sit with your mom. It's probably hard to be away at times like this. Hope she gets back to feeling pretty good fast.

    1. There is family and friends in the area, and a great staff at the new seniors place she is in.
      We have been through this area many times, and never thought to stop, this time sort of planned it so that we could get a reservation.

  9. You are right around the same area we have been in last winter and it seems like the weather pattern is repeating itself. If you plan on crossing Texas I sure hope your not getting into a deep freeze. I would recommend a southern route along the gulf and up north along the Rio Grande. That is in case it's really getting cold.

  10. Greetings from Niagara Falls, NY where we just got two inches of snow but Buffalo and South Towns got the worst on record.......90 inches in many areas. This is a disaster area for sure. Even getting a visit from Gov Cuomo...a lot of good THAT will do! So enjoy your nice weather for us!
