Monnday: Last nights wine and cheese social was a big hit. Lots of excellent, and varied, cheese dishes.
This is a racing balloon. In the evening four launched. The goal is to travel as far as possible without landing. This race is a preliminary event with the winner going to an international race later this year.
The balloon launch was delayed until about 9am because of high winds. The typical start time is about 7am. The 9am launch worked much better with Carols schedule. Once again, we walked down to the museum area for a nice view.
Two more people pulled in today. Todd who just picked up his new-to-him '99 LD in California. He's on his way back to Minnesota. And Ginny Free and her wonder dog Junah; a very friendly female doberman pincher. Ginny has had a run of bad luck with her Lazy Daze but you would never guess it by talking to her. She's just as smiley and cheerful as can be.
Tonight was desert-for- dinner night. A huge selection of mostly homemade deserts was available.
We've both put on weight recently. As soon as we get home, the diet starts.
Our last day here.
Our Lazy Daze friend, Lisa, pulled in today. These days Lisa's traveling with three dogs; all strays shes picked up here and there.
Tonight is grill night. Throw whatever you care too on the grill.
We headed out this morning about 7am. Tonight we're in the Fair Park campground in Childress, TX. ($15/night for water/elect. No dump station) We've been here before. It's right in the center of the city park. Very nice. 34.42997 -100.20207
We had dinner at the Jakson Steak and Bar-B-Que restaurant. The brisket was as good as it gets (served, of course, with plain white bread). They have some very good sides as well. The onion rings are breaded with cornmeal. We shared the squash chips, sweet potato fries and slaw.
During the drive, the primary topic was the possible move to Colorado. We've decided to go ahead so when we get home, I'll start working on all the little repair items needed to get the house ready to sell and we'll start sorting through a lifetime of "stuff", deciding what to pitch, what to donate and what to take to CO.
Three more long driving days ahead of us.
