We Are Still Coming And Going

We started the day out going and we went all day!  My sweet friend Gina has a bad tooth, circumstances have prevented her from seeing a dentist and the tooth decided to really rear it’s ugly head a couple days ago.  We tried to get her into a dentist yesterday with no luck, an appointment on Monday morning was the best we could do.  I woke up this morning thinking, “I am going to find Gina a dentist TODAY!”  The poor girl was miserable last night—when your teeth ache, your whole body aches!  Well, I was successful and we hit the jackpot—the dentist in Rockport was understanding of Gina’s fears and got her started on the right path.  It is going to take some time but at least we have relieved her pain. 

While we were gone to the dentist, Mike and Rollie changed the oil in Rollie’s jeep and puttered around some more.  Once Gina and I got back—I started cooking, Mom and Chuck were arriving this afternoon and we were making dinner.

Gina had a craving for crabs so they headed over to Rockport purchasing crabs and shrimp.  The cooking began in earnest when they got back.  I made stuffed bell peppers and they were delicious—I used Gina and Rollie’s recipe with Zataran’s rice and sausage instead of ground beef.  IMG_5918I think I’ve decided these things are a little too much trouble for the amount of meat you get!!

Mom and Chuck rolled in about 5pm and we carted all their stuff into the travel trailer to be unpacked tomorrow.  They then came over to the motorhome to enjoy dinner with us.


After reading a blog Rick wrote recently about getting cable internet, a light bulb went off for us.  We have RV park provided cable—our Millenicom aircard worked here in Aransas Pass but without its usual good speeds.  The park wifi is a joke.  Today we entered the world of high speed internet—thank you cable company—we just purchased a modem, took it to the local cable company office to get it activated and we are in business!  And it costs us just slightly more per month than our Millenicom aircard. 

Emmi spent the day keeping up with all the people and was one tired puppy tonight--



  1. Poor Emmi All tuckered out. Big day for her.

  2. Great looking platter of crabs. Just enough there for a good appetizer . I agree with you that they are a lot of work, but I find them worth the time and effort. Bet you will love the cable service. Much faster than DSL.

  3. Emmi is so cute & relaxed!!!! Yummy looking crabs!

  4. You did have a busy day, and Emmi was the tired one.

  5. Cute pics of Emmi. Good move on the cable broadband - isn't it great? We love it here.

    Howdy J&M,
    Sure am glad the folks got down there safely!! Wish you wouldn't show all of that 'good' food I can't chew anymore, sure does get a feller 'hongry'!!! Is changing Rollie's oil in Mike's job description?? I guess I'd do it too, also, if he fed me lobster, crab and shrimp all of the time!!! Sorry about Gina's tooth-ache, I HAVE felt her pain and it ain't funny when the dentist says come back in a week; especially when they then stick you with a couple of hundred dollar bill and WANT THEIR MONEY, NOW!!! Tell g-ma Gina we're praying for her comfort!!
    Hope y'all have some good weather and the Arkies don't get sun-burned!!!

  7. What a whirlwind of activities you have faced of late. Nice of you to find a dentist to attend to Gina's needs.
