The Four Missing Days - Sun., Nov. 2 through Wed., Nov. 5, 2014

Since we returned home on Saturday, Bob did a 20-mile run with his Marathon training group on Sunday morning. He loves running with the group because it encourages him to run faster.

I have spent time finishing blogs from vacation. My friend, Susan, invited me to see "Fury" with her on Monday. I told her I had already seen it and didn't care to see it again. She also invited me to see "John Wick" with Keanu Reeves on Tuesday. I told her I'd see that with her.

On Monday, I went by myself to see "Alexander and Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day." It's a cute movie about a family that seems to have it all together, everyone, that is, except Alexander. He seems to have quite a few mishaps and is picked on by the other kids.

On midnight of his birthday he makes a wish that seems to cause problems for every other member of his family on his birthday. Nothing seems to go right. The premise is similar to "Liar, Liar" with Jim Carrey, when Jim Carrey's son wishes his dad would not lie. "Alexander..." was not near as funny as "Liar, Liar."

Tuesday, Susan and I saw "John Wick." Oh dear, that is not my kind of movie. From beginning to end, it is one big killing spree. Violent, gory, and not much plot. I classify "John Wick" as a revenge and assassination movie. Yuck.

Bob's brother, Tom, and Tom's wife, Rosemarie, arrived at Traveler's World to stay for a week before they head to Galveston.

Wednesday, I went back to work at the RV park as a full-time employee, working four, ten-hour days per week. Busy season has started so we are taking reservations by phone and walk-ins, and also doing check-ins, check-outs, and gift shop sales.

Today, Bob took his brother and sister-in-law went sightseeing around San Antonio while I worked. Tonight we went to Tex-Mex dinner at Iron Cactus on the San Antonio River Walk. Dinner was quite enjoyable.

That was a great end to a long work day. I will be working through Saturday.

On Sunday, Susan, Darren, Bob and I will do the New Braunfels Volksmarch and Wurstfest. Wurstfest is New Braunfels version of Oktoberfest. There's a Fest Halle, lots of polka music, amusement rides, all kinds of food booths and the requisite beer and wine. We went last year and had a lot of fun. Stay tuned!

Travel Bug out.


  1. We were at the Wurstfest several years ago. What fun! Love those hats everyone wears.

  2. What a great way to spend those "missing" days! You guys are so super busy and it is delightful to tag along virtually.
