Missing my guy. He's been on the loose since Thursday morning when I took him to the airport at 6 a.m.
Las Vegas, baby. Off to his younger brother's wedding on a stern wheeler on Lake Mead, visits with family and friends, and warm weather. I am jealous.
Our weather in San Antonio, like so many other locations in the U.S. is being affected by the polar vortex. Daytime highs have been in the 40s or low 50s, nighttime temps around 35-38. Too early in the year for this kind of weather!
While Bob was in Las Vegas/Henderson, he stayed with his Mom and sister, ran 20 miles on the morning of the wedding, became a last-minute Best Man, had to buy a new suit, and saw his ex-wife and her husband, along with nieces, nephews, and their kids. It was quite a family event.
Here's the kicker. You'll find this interesting (maybe). When Bob married Laurie (his first wife) 40 years ago, Bob's younger brother Aaron was ring bearer, and Laurie's sister Lizzie was flower girl.
Fast forward to 2014. A couple of marriage and divorces under their belts, Aaron and Lizzie reconnected on Facebook, fell in love, and got married on a stern wheeler on Lake Mead yesterday. Congratulations to you both!
When Bob found out his brother didn't have a Best Man, he volunteered to stand up for his brother. Bob hadn't packed a suit, so he went out and bought a new one for the occasion.
A shout out and kudos go to Kristin Carll, a close friend (adopted sister) of the family who opened up her home for bride and bridesmaids to have their makeup done, applied their makeup for them, and hosted the wedding reception. I don't know how she does it. You rock, girlfriend!
Bob is on his return flight tonight. I'll be picking him up at the airport around 11 p.m.
In other news, I've started working out a Planet Fitness again. Went to see "Gone, Girl" today. Didn't like it. Yuck.
Yesterday, I met fellow bloggers Ray and Cindy who opted to cancel their reservations at another park and stay at Travelers World. It's much more convenient to downtown San Antonio than where they had planned to stay. Today they explored the Alamo and Mission San Jose. I got to meet their five-month-old puppy, Penny. Such a cutie! Tomorrow they are going to go quilt store shopping as Cindy loves quilting. We're hoping to spend more time getting to know them at a potluck social tomorrow night at the RV park. Then they're headed west.
Yesterday, Terry the manager of our RV park was in the Recreation Hall doing repairs to a light or electrical box near or on the ceiling (not sure exactly). He climbed down from the ladder he had been working on. A knife that was left on the top of the ladder fell hitting him in the chest then falling to the floor. He started bleeding...a lot. He was driven to a medical clinic and then taken to SAMMC Trauma Center to make sure he hadn't nicked an artery or his pericardium. He had surgery and they cleaned out the blood, but apparently he didn't have any damage to his artery. Looks like he gets to come home tomorrow. That's a relief. You just never know what will happen.
I want to give thanks to Terry, our manager, and Dan, one of our maintenance crew here at Travelers World. I ran out of propane in one tank a few days ago. With Bob being gone, they came and picked up the empty tank, filled it, and put it back in the 5th wheel. Just in the nick of time. When I got home from work on Friday, my other tank was empty. So on Saturday, they again picked up, filled, and returned the propane tank for me. I feel well taken care of and a part of the family here. Thanks, again, Terry and Dan!
Welcome to new follower, Ed. I don't know if he writes a blog. Ed, if you would like a blog listed, please let me know so I can give you a shout out.
Can't wait for Bob to get home. I miss him when he's gone.
Travel Bug out.
