Where are we?

Monday November 11, 2019

Remembrance Day. A special thanks to all past and present military personnel.

I got this photo from Kristin as Jeremy prepared to got for the Remembrance Day parade.
And yes, this is a photo of me next to our son. It dates from around 2006/2007.

We had a very warm day today, 32° C.
I puttered around the MH, but it was too hot and humid to do anything. Michele did laundry and it was very hot in the laundromat.
After the laundry was done, we went to the pool to cool off. The water heater is broken and the water was only at 73° F. Let's say we cooled off very quickly. Only the Canadians were in the water.

As I said, it was 32° C today, but as we came out of the bingo at 9 pm, a cold front arrived. Between 9 and 10 pm, the temperature dropped to 10° C. At 11 pm, it was only 4° C. The rain started and so did the wind. The wind was very strong.

Michele won a big $6 at bingo. It cost $5 for both of us to play. A profit of $1. WOW!

Lots of wind and rain last night.
This is what we see in the front windshield. This is what happen with the sunshade on the windshield. Once it dries, we will be able to see through again.

Rain and wind all day today. Look at the palm tree?

This was the maximum we have hit today.

We spent the day surfing the net and watching TV.

Wednesday November 13, 2019

The rain has stopped, but the cold front will linger for a few more days.

I lied, the rain came back in the afternoon.

We used the day for going to the local thrift stores.

Jeremy sent us these photos. A rock hit his oil pan and punctured a hole into it.
He plugged the hole with marine epoxy. It was -20° C. He got cold while waiting for his girlfriend to come to the rescue.

I cannot wait for the good weather to come back.

Monday we got a text message from Patrice and Manon. They bought a house in Saint Benoit-Labre.
Today we got another msg from them. They will be coming camping with us here in Texas. From January until March. They cannot get into the new house until May 1st, 2020.

Thursday November 14, 2019

After sending text msg back and forth with Patrice/Manon, they are almost sure at 100% they are coming this winter. We cannot wait to see them again.

Monday I had installed the tire covers on the tires since we are here for the next 4 months.

The weather is warming up some. I made the place a little more like home.
I placed the carpet to the road to prevent walking on the sandburrs and bringing them on the patio.

The tables, the BBQ, the chairs and Michele on the patio. We can see the carpet going to the road.
I probably will be making some adjustments over the next few days. We will see.

Another view of the patio. I will put down one of two more carpets between the MH and the green carpet.

The sun is nice and warm, but when it goes, it cools off quickly.

Friday November 15, 2019

We got a text msg from Manon/Patrice asking us to book a site from them from January 10 to March 10, 2020.
Michele and I went right away to the front office to see what was available. A site, two next to us will be open at that time. Our site is 792 and Manon/Patrice's site will be 794. We cannot wait to see them.

After we got the reservation made, we went to the Mercadome Flea Market to check it out. A cold wind is blowing. We only bought some veggies.

The local H-E-B grocery store has this sign for us Winter Texans. It is the same as Snowbirds in Florida.

Just to give you an idea of the impact the Winter Texans have on the local economy. Between the cities of Mission in the west and all the way to Port Isabel, the population is about 700,000 people. Winter Texans add another 100,000 to that number. They are very happy to see us every winter.

It is getting warmer. This morning I installed the other carpet to make our place a little cozier.

We had a nice and quiet day. Here I am cooking supper.

It turned out the meat was still a little hard. The left over will be going to the crock-pot tomorrow.

Sunday November 17, 2019

Michele spent the morning shopping in a few thrift stores.

I went to the flea market next to the RV Park.

We spent some time in the indoor pool as the outside pool is still not working.

The actual road is straight, it is the collage that makes it looking curved. We are the RV with the satellite dish on the roof.

For the next week of more, the temperature should stay in the upper twenties.

Until next time.

Life is good...
