Van Alstyne, Texas

We had about 130 miles to drive from Wichita Falls, TX to Van Alstyne, TX.  We’re visiting our friends Terry and Sylvia for a few days prior to moving to the East Fork Corps of Engineers campground in Wylie to spend Thanksgiving with our son and his family.  We around noon, got set up and visited a bit and we all went to the steak dinner at the American Legion on the road behind their house.  I believe that’s about the third time we’ve been to a meal there, and it’s always good and the price is right.  Terry and Sylvia have storage units on their property.


Terry and Sylvia and their Jack Russell, Keeper were getting ready to drive to San Antonio for Thanksgiving and then will be continuing to Rockport for a month before heading to Arizona this winter.  They had there train set up in front of the house and already to head out this morning.


Keeper, not wanting to miss out on a trip, was in the front seat of the pickup and ready to go.


Here’s Ken with Terry and Sylvia before they left this morning.


And there goes their train headed south to San Antonio.


In addition to the great visit with friends, Terry and Sylvia are sending us off with some stuff for our house in Arizona.  We’ve got a dining table and chairs, patio table and chairs, and some pots and pans and utensils for the kitchen.  What special friends…we can’t thank you two enough!!
