Fun, Fun Fun!!

Fun, Fun Fun!!

Saturday, February 25 - What’s been happening (Mercedes, TX)


We have not been writing much lately mostly because after 3 1/2 years of the blog it has become somewhat of a chore. I guess I will have to pitch in and give Ginger a hand with the blog a bit more than I have.

The weather for most of the month has been cloudy and wet. I think we only had 1 sunny day the first 2 weeks. It got a little better after that but still quite a few wet or dreary days.

We went to Mexico on Friday the 10th. Nothing new there just not as many Americanos as there used to be.

Bob’s birthday along with our grandson Gage was on Valentines Day. The six of us went to Texas Roadhouse for dinner. Bob had the most fun, take a look.


We were having a pot luck brunch on the 15th for Bob’s b-day. 2 of his daughters and grandchildren were coming in for a visit as a surprise. And surprised they were to both Janet and Bob!!

The next day the Marilyn, Ed, Ginger, and I went to the Rec Hall for lunch and a few games of pool afterwards. I think the team of Ginger and Ed took Marilyn and me 3 to 1. Then Ed and I played a couple of games ourselves and he was gracious enough to scratch on the 8 ball both games.

On Sat the 18th Ginger and I picked up a couple of pizzas and met Marilyn and Ed at the library for pizza and Mexican Train. Marilyn showed no mercy and beat the pants off of us.

Sunday morning Heinz stopped by to see if we would like to go for a bike ride at Resaca de la Palma State Park. It looked to be a nice day so we accepted. We all brought some snacks and cold drinks and Heinz picked us up in his truck. We enjoyed the leisurely ride and the nice mild day.


Monday we all went to the Gladys Porter Zoon in Brownsville. Ginger and I rode with Heinz and Irene and Bob and Janet rode with Ed and Marilyn. Having never been there before Ginger and I were quite impressed with how nice the zoo was. We all had a good time and went to Fat Daddy’s for a late lunch after Ed again took us to a restaurant that was closed. We took many more pictures way too many to post here.



This past Wednesday the 8 of us met Roger and Joyce at their RV spot in Bentsen Palms so we could all ride over to Rio Bentsen State Park. This time we all packed a lunch. It was a warm and muggy morning but we chose to eat our lunch at the hawk observation tower and there was a nice breeze to keep us cool and the gnats and mosquitos away.

Thursday evening Bob, Janet, Ed, Marilyn, Ginger, and I went to a dinner play at the Rec Hall. The actors and stage hands were all members of the drama club here at the Resort. I liked the dinner but Ginger does not eat red meat and the entre was brisket. Oh well more meat for me. The play was ok. I only fell asleep a couple of times. The best parts were when they flubbed their lines.

Since then Ginger has come down with a nasty head cold so we have just been hanging round the house . Hopefully she will get well soon as we leave here next Saturday.
