Bone dry…… to floods


Do you remember the pictures I posted of Bob in this tree along side of the Medina River in Bandera?



Here is a picture of that same spot three weeks later.

Although it may be difficult to see, the tree in the center of this photo…is the one we managed to climb into for the pictures above.   

I was reading  a blog this morning ( about a Bandera RV park being evacuated, I suddenly realized this is the same place we enjoyed on several occasions (picture above is from her blog)


This morning we woke to blue skies and promises of warm weather.  With the recent rains and windy conditions,  living in small quarters seems to lose it’s shine very quickly.   Yesterday afternoon we headed to Bill and Roni’s for an overdue visit.   We are very fortunate to have such great friends and we pick up  conversations as if we just lived next door.   What a gift!  

They, too, have had recent health issues which has prompted their interest in building a  home that is “senior friendly”   It is quite an eye opener to suddenly be faced with such decisions.   Getting older is definitely pigeon poop!   I hope all smoothens out for them because they have created a slice of heaven Bill built twenty years ago.  

The day is wasting …time to soak up some sun!    


  1. If you have blue skies today, maybe we'll be getting them tomorrow some time. :)

  2. Wow, that's a lot of water. Hope you're enjoying some sunshine. We've had that today, but forecast calling for rain showers in one form or another for at least the next 10 days. Our rivers are getting pretty full now, too. Hope they don't start looking like your picture!


OOOPS! you almost missed the spot to tell us what is on your mind. Go ahead, leave a comment.....
