Bagels and Pizza . . .

Today was a travel day so I was up at 7:30, got the coffee started, and then went outside to pack away the satellite stuff and stow the chairs.

By the time I came back inside, it was 8 am and time to wake my sweetie.

After coffee and cinnamon bagels, we finished packing up inside just in time to spend some time with Amy and her family when they came over to say goodbye. We really feel like we’ve found a second home here and look forward to coming back for a visit next year.

Nick and Terry, and Amy’s family will all be spending the winter near each other in Florida so they’ll get some extra time together this winter.

Jan and I are jealous.

Finally about 10:30 we were hitched up and heading out of Smith’s Campground on our way back to Elkhart, IN for a couple of weeks before we start making our way back to Houston for the winter.

The trip was pretty smooth except for a couple of times when Nick’s GPS routing and my GPS routing didn’t agree, so we ended up trundling through a couple of neighborhoods to get back on track, with no problems.

We got into Elkhart Campground about 3:30 and got set up in our usual sites. By 4 pm we were heading out to our favorite local pizza place, Mancino’s. Since we didn’t stop for lunch, we were all pretty hungry and the pizza and garlic breadsticks really hit the spot.

Finally getting home I got the satellite set up and we were in for the night.


Thought for the Day:

"In the first place we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the man’s becoming in very fact an American, and nothing but an American… There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag, and this excludes the red flag, which symbolizes all wars against liberty and civilization, just as much as it excludes any foreign flag of a nation to which we are hostile…We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language…and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people." — Theodore Roosevelt, 1919

  1. Teddy Roosevelt was my kind of president. Walk softly, but carry a big stick.

    Now politicians worry more about getting re-elected than they do representing the people who voted them into office.

    Well, then — we can just vote ’em out.

  2. We miss you guys! Maybe George and I will find our dream motorhome at Ppl and we can come to Houston to see you. Safe travels.
