Saying Goodbye to Friends

The plan for Thursday was lunch back at the Butter Churn. We all met at 1pm.  This restaurant has a buffet and everyday they have different specials. Today’s was chicken and dumplings, cowboy steak and fried chicken. I have to say I was a little disappointed in the selections compared to the previous visit. We of course ate our share and had some laughs.  Later in the afternoon we gathered for dessert furnished by Donna. She had made another batch of her famous brownies.

We had plans to go to a flea market on Friday. Kevin and Nolan were going to stay behind, as they don’t like shopping too much. I was up and ready by 9:00. When I went outside I saw that Donna and Nolan were packing up to leave.. She had received word that her mom had gone to the hospital.  They were our next door neighbors (to our right) and we are very sad to see them go.  We will miss you both and look forward to seeing you again before too long.

The rest of us left and headed to Corpus Christi. The flea market  was not at all what we expected and we didn’t hang out too long.  Our next stop was Rudy’s for barbecue. It was yummy.  I had driven with Mac and Netters and after a stop at Best Buy, we took the scenic trip back to the park. We sat outside in the sunshine until it cooled off.

Saturday Kevin and I went out to Breakfast and to do a few errands.  Early afternoon I drove with Mac and Netters to check out some RV parks in the area. We did find one that we really like. We have talked about maybe heading back here next April.  Port Aransas has a Sand Fest at that time that we think we would like to take in.

We are now waiting patiently for our shrimp boil on Sunday. Stay tuned for that…
