Friends, Fun and Storms

Lavon, Texas
Weather Conditions; Cloudy, 73 degrees

We spent our last 4 days off enjoying this wonderful weather.

On Friday we had guest over for a hamburger picnic.


We sat outside eating our hamburgers and enjoying the beautiful bluebonnets.



Saturday night the weather got really nasty here. Dawn and I loaded up the dogs and drove into downtown Wylie (5 miles) to take cover from the expected high winds and hail.

We have a metal cover over our RV and the truck will fit beside it so that it is covered too.

The problem being, we are perched on a hill and a predicted wind of 65 mph, I’m outa here.

Anyway, we found a bank drive-thru behind a 2 story building where we took cover.

A few minutes after we parked, the wind got up, a flooding rain and lots of lighting. A few minutes later, the power went out. All of downtown Wylie was dark.

It only took about 45 minutes for the storm to move past us. We arrived home a little after 10 p.m. Our power was still on.

On Sunday we spent the day at Lone Star Park with friends for some horse racing.

We had great seats at the finish line.


We had a great day watching the horse’s race. We’re not big gamblers but we will place a $6.00 bet here and there.


We really enjoy the seats on the dining floor. We reserved a table so that we could have lunch while watching the races. This is the TV on our table for up close viewing.

Dawn won a couple of times. $12.00 and $24.00.

There were nine races on Sunday. On the ninth race Dawn bet $6.00 on a horse with 30-1 odds to win.


We laughed about how awesome it would be for that horse to win.

We were still laughing when that horse won with odds listed at 80-1.


Dawn won a whopping $238.00!

Open for Business

Lavon, Texas
Weather Conditions; Cloudy, 68 degrees

We’ve been busy. The park opened April 1st.

Prior to the park opening, we moved our fiver back across the street to our last summer site.

We’re out of practice. When we’re on the road traveling we can load up and be on the road in no time. After sitting for a while it takes longer to get everything situated and hooked up.

We did get moved and set-up. We also painted the storage buildings and mowed the gate attendant sites.



We’ve had so much rain since the first of the year that the grass and weeds have taken off.

The blue bonnets are beautiful!


 Matter of fact, it has rained so much that the lake has gone from half full to a few feet low.

The boat ramp at our park is now open and the campers are pouring in.  



We’re predicting our last season here will be a busy one!

Dawn has pulled her atlas out and is already planning our path out of here this fall. While Dawn does that, Odis is checking Google for 5 star Doggie Parks

Weather, Construction and FUN!

Lavon, Texas
Weather Conditions; Cloudy, 26 degrees with sleet

This has been a mild winter here in north Texas until this week. The sleet and snow started last night and now the ground is covered. The weatherman is calling for more of the same tonight.


The contractor started the park entrance road a few weeks ago. The construction company brought in all kinds of heavy equipment and used orange safety fencing and barricades to close the entrance. There are large signs on the barricades warning the road is closed. The US Army Corps of Engineers have posted signs letting people know the park is closed too.


This was all done prior to the road being dug up. Currently the road has been removed from one side to the other leaving a 2 foot deep hole.


Those signs, orange safety fence and barricades don’t mean anything to the fine folks in this area!

We have watched people walk pasted the all that and get on their hands and knees and crawl under the safety fence and climb in and out of the large hole to enter the park.

The really sad part is, once they enter the park, I have to tell them the area is off-limits and they have to leave!

This has happened more than once!!!!!   

What is WRONG with people?

The contractor said he had a man pulling a boat stop and ask if could move his equipment so he could enter the park!!!!!!????!!

We have watched people enter the construction area and try to come into the park. The contractor had to run them out.

I wonder how these people have lived this long?!? There seem to be a lot of folks out there that don’t think the signs, fences and locked gates apply to them.

Dawn and I took advantage of a couple of warm weather days to paint the new fence and gates here. It took most of the day. The pipe was very rusty and we had to knock most of that off before we could start painting.


We are very proud of our paint job.

We plan of doing more painting once the weather allows.

We spent one afternoon with a few friends for some lunch and bowling. We always have a great time when we get together!


We also spent one afternoon with friends at the Dallas Super RV show.

While there, Dawn and I walked through our dream fiver, the 2015 Bay Hill.

We also had drinks and some eats at the Truck Yard. It’s a very neat place where local food trucks park. The yard has a bar and a stage. The trucks rotate so there are different trucks on different days. We spent a few hours there sampling the different beers and food.



We’ve seen the eagle a few more times.
