Back at the ranch (Travelers World Carefree RV Resort), I watched the birds loading up on seeds in advance of the coming cold front (again!).

On to more pleasant topics...this evening we drove to Seguin to meet Keith and Brenda, fellow RV bloggers who are currently Winter Texans in Wimberley. (Winter Texans = snowbirds in other parts of the country.) Keith writes Damn Near Perfect Couple. You'll have to head over to his blog to see why they call themselves that.
Keith recommended Casa Sol Mexican Restaurant for dinner, saying they have never had a bad meal there. It's a nicely decorated place and my dinner was outstanding. (I had Pachuga de Pollo with mushrooms and onions sauteed in a brown sherry (?) sauce served with Spanish rice, re-fried beans and a small salad.) Yummy on the taste buds! Bob ate enchiladas verdes. We forgot to take photos of our plates full of food.
Dinner conversation was so much fun. Before we knew it two hours had passed and it was time to head back to our respective RV parks. We're making plans to visit them in Wimberley and for them to visit us in San Antonio in the coming weeks. Thank you, Brenda and Keith, for a great evening!

Oh, yeah, I have one more new friend: Sharon, who lives at our RV park. Both of us are movie buffs and we've been going to see movies together regularly.
Our good friends, Jim and Peri, should be back from their cruise. They are in San Marcos which isn't far from Wimberley. We may have to introduce them to Keith and Brenda. We can all play Sequence, explore local towns, and try interesting restaurants. Sounds like more fun on the horizon.
Then last week, I was invited to lunch with a group of RVing ladies at Cheddar's in Schertz, but I got called to work that day, so had to bow out at the last minute. We can thank Colleen of Traveling with the Long Dogs for organizing those luncheons.
Susan M., walking buddy, invited me to a Cookie Exchange at her house on Dec. 15. She even said I could come early to make cookies in her kitchen before everyone else got there. What a sweetie. She thinks of everything.
When you open yourself up to new people and new experiences you never know where you'll end up...but it beats sitting at home cogitating. We're living life to the fullest within the confines of our present reality.
Rock on. Travel Bug out.
