Dan and I have been trying to get to the Alamo for about a month now. Due to the varieties of weather there has been in the area, we haven’t made it yet…till NOW!!!
So, one way or another, come Thursday, we are taking off for a couple of days to go to San Antonio. The weather is supposed to be in the upper 70’s and NO RAIN FOR THE REST OF THE WEEK, NO SNOW, NO STRONG WINDS AND LOCALLY DAMAGING HAIL!! We’re leaving the 5th wheel here and going to “rough it” in a motel in a town by the name of New Braunfels, Texas. It is about 25 miles N. of San Antonio. So, EEEHHH HAAAAA!!! We’ll be tourists for a couple of days!
There are trees in blossom! Pretty white blossoms! We can’t get close enough to tell if they are cherry trees or not. People’s yards have flowers! Many daffodils but there are somethings growing all over the ground with delicate purple flowers on the plant. It reminds me of catnip but I don’t know for sure that is what it is. Leaves are almost ready to “burst forth”!
We’ve got a “potty problem” in the 5th wheel. Dan plans on attacking it today when he gets home from work. For those of you familiar with potties in RVs, you know how they operate; you push the lever at the bottom to get water and to flush. Ours is currently stuck in the open position. Fortunately, there isn’t water constantly running, but with it being stuck open…well, you RV’ers know how “pleasant” THAT can be! I think it just needs that ball thing cleaned and Dan thinks it is broken. With all the nasty water we have had (and remember the story about the anode rod and how eaten up IT was from nasty water), I think there is a lot of mineral deposits/build up on that thing. And I know Dan hasn’t taken the file to that apparatus in a LONG time (not a pleasant task either, but not one he trusts me to do). So, hopefully by using that file cleaner thingy and using some spray silicone that we purchased yesterday, he’ll have that thing sliding properly SOON! With it being warmer, having that thing stick open is not an option!
My mouth seems better, but my jaws still are stiff a lot of the time. Applying heat to my jaw area seems to eliminate that pain for a while. I still don’t plan on eating any peanuts or popcorn for a while! NOR ANY HARD FROZEN ITEMS!!!
It is 64 degrees outside and sunny, so what the hell am I doing in here at the computer????
CATCH YOU ALL LATER!

- A long time ago, I was a child. (I started out as Cathy First from Colon, Mi.) For the past several years I’ve been an adult. A lot of things went on between those two stages of life; probably no more or no less than anyone elses. My husband and I moved to “da U .P” from southern Lower Michigan several years ago (yes we were trolls at one time). We owned and operated and operate Clementz’s Northcountry Campground and Cabins just north of Newberry, Michigan until May 2015. We have grown kids and grandkids (who all live downstate). My passion is life and all that Nature has to offer us and trying to photograph it in unique ways. Our intention in life is to see all that Nature has to offer us. We hope that you will be a part of our adventures as we cruise through our lives together. Come back often!
