Bob is in marathon training for the Honolulu Marathon in December. Saturday, he was up bright and early for a 20-mile training run. After the run, he took Saturday afternoon off and, instead of working, he stayed home to veg out to sports on TV.
Saturday, after I worked a 10-hour day, Bob and I had a short breather before Travelers World RV Resort had their Halloween party. The party started at 7 p.m. We brought our own drinks and snacks to share. Randi and Lydia were the instigators of the party and assembled a team of volunteers to decorate, set up and clean up. They also secured a DJ to spin dance tunes. We enjoyed seeing the costumes and dancing to Halloween rock music, especially Monster Mash.

Sunday morning we drove an hour to Waring, Texas where we started our 10k Volksmarch through Camp Capers, an Episcopalian camp. The morning was hot and humid with not even a blade of grass stirring. At 8:10 am we were walking.
Around the block we went in Waring, then headed down a country road toward the camp. In order for us not to walk in the road, a path was mowed through the weeds and grasses.

Bob, on the other hand, has a membership to Gold's Gym, so we went to the closest location where he showered and changed clothes. Then we were off to Six Flags Fiesta Texas.
