Stars Fell on Alabama . . .

Today started off nice and quiet with coffee and not doing anything else. It was nice to just sit here. We were supposed to get together with two of my cousins this afternoon, but other than that we’re pretty much on our own.

One thing that has surprised me here is how fast the Verizon 4G is.  At 44 Mbps, it’s the fastest I’ve very found anywhere in the country. And the upload speed of 20 Mbps is none too shabby either. The 3G is pretty good too, the fastest I’ve had in a long time. Nice!

We just goofed off for the rest of the morning and early afternoon. Then about 3pm, my cousins, Anna Jean & Marjorie came by the rig to visit for a while. Since they’re actually my grandmother’s sister’s children, they’re really my second cousins. But who’s counting.

In another of those strange coincidences that seem to pop up in our family, knowing that we’re from Texas, Anna Jean mentioned that her son Ted had been recently gotten married down in Austin at a small chapel that hangs out over a canyon.

With a couple of more questions, we all realized that her son Ted was married in the same chapel where our daughter Brandi was married in June 2010.

This is the Chapel Dulcinea, located in the Texas Hill Country near Austin. And it has a great view out over the valley.

A really beautiful place to get married. And another of those strange coincidences.

As always we had a great time getting together with my cousins, and look forward to doing it again next year.

A little later while Jan was getting ready for us to go to dinner, my cousin Wes came by with our mail from MyDakotaAddress. I was glad to see it because I was afraid it wouldn’t get here until after we leave here on Monday. It has the renewal papers for our car and rig tags and I didn’t want it to get lost.

For dinner we decided on Catfish Cabin again. You wouldn’t think a restaurant 400 miles from the ocean would have seafood this good and this fresh, but they do.

Getting back home I talked to my friend Nick Russell. He and Terry are still down in Titusville, FL, but they’ll be heading down to the Keys on Monday, the same day we plan on heading down to Gulf Shores.


Thought for the Day:
