Home Again, Home Again . . .

Jiggity jig!

Well, we had planned to be on the road back home by 7am this morning, but after having so much fun yesterday visiting with Claudia, an old school friend of mine from junior high, 7am became 8am.

Of course, we had to avail ourselves of the ‘delicious free breakfast’ here at the La Quinta hotel. But, unlike our recent stays at a Days Inn, a Sleep Inn, and a Hampton Inn, where we had a full breakfast with waffles, eggs, sausage, cereal, etc., we only got coffee and stale cinnamon buns.

After a bathroom break along the way, we got to Breaux Bridge, LA about noon, for a another bathroom break, and then refueling for us with Arby’s Roast  Beef Sandwiches and Jamocha Shakes, and gas. For the Jeep, anyway.

We’ll see how it goes with the sandwiches and shakes.

Our next stop was at the LA/TX border for another break. And of course it started pouring down rain right before we got there.

Finally, about 45 minutes before we got home, we made one last Buc-ee’s stop, this time the one in Baytown, for getting-home coffee.

Getting closer to home, and coming down I-45, we again ran into another band of rain.

But luckily it seemed to jump over the RV Park, so it was clear by the time we got home. And by 5pm we were unloaded and back home.

After doing a quick headcount it looks like none of Jan’s Flamingo Flamboyance had flown the coop, err, yard. And Jan even brought home another addition to the the group. I have a pic for you tomorrow.

And I guess my jury-rigged Hibiscus Watering System (pat. pending) had functioned OK since the hibiscus tree was still alive, and even had blooms and more buds. So it looks like my kludge was a success after all.

We had a great time the last two weeks, just fantastic. And hopefully we’ll be able to do it all over again next year.

I’ll be going back over the next few days and catching you up on all the fun we had along the way.

Be Happy. It drives your enemies crazy.
