Moving toward Oklahoma

In the last blog I mentioned that we moved to Lake Tawakoni Thousand Trails park. We no sooner got set up but the rain came. We went to the clubhouse as it was movie night but the lady couldn't get the DVD to work so she loaned us 2 of them and gave us a microwave popcorn and we went home to watch it. It was cool and nasty the next morning. We had wanted to kayak but opted to have a lazy day. We computered, read and did a few odd chores or repairs. In the afternoon we got a new neighbor and Bob showed him around our trailer, solar & wind generator setup. We invited them to play Pegs & Joker's and we had a nice evening. Never even took a picture here.

We moved up the road to the next Thousand Trails Park, Lake Texaoma.
It's on the TX-OK border and is a lovely facility. We took the last pull-thru site and it's on the end so we only have neighbors on one side. Always like that. Across the road from us is the Family Center but since it's still school season there aren't any children and the adults use it. The clouds followed us but not the rain. After a comfort dinner of spaghetti which Bob cooked I went for a long 45 minute walk to the boat launch. We played Pegs & Jokers with 6 of our neighbors at the clubhouse in the evening.

The next morning dawned sunny and it was time to go to work. With all the traveling and the rain the motorhome was badly in need of washing. I washed and rinsed while Bob came behind wiping it down. We treated ourselves to dinner out at Don's BBQ near Whitesboro. It is sorta cafeteria style and as we were looking at the menu board another couple came in. We let them go ahead of us and then joined them at their table. We do that often and have great conversations and meet nice folks. They were the ages of our kids and she was recovering from strokes caused by an aneurysm. They both expressed how God has other plans for her and we told them our tale how God put us together in the desert of AZ. We stopped at the DQ for the special Blizzard offer buy one get one for 25 cents. Back home it was time to go to the clubhouse for P&J. What is it with the guys winning all the time.

Bob finished the front end of the motorhome while I did the laundry. We went geocashing in the afternoon. The wildflowers are pretty. Especially the bluebonnets. The TX state flower.
Does anyone know what this orange one is.
Found 5 cashes but was unable to find the one at this border sign.

I believe that the Texas version of Indian Paintbrush - I guess that makes it Texas Paintbrush.
