6/3–6/4/2013 The Graduate and Friends in Van Alstyne, TX

We spent some time on Monday afternoon with our granddaughter McKenna who will be graduating in a few days.  We are very proud of her for what she’s accomplished in her young life and for her strong beliefs.  She is well on her way to doing very well in life.


After our visit with McKenna, we decided to check out some possible places for family tours later this week.  We never watched the tv show Dallas in the 70’s, but a few short miles from Chris and Laurie’s house is the Southfork Ranch which is the site of that tv show.  We walked through the gift shop/visitor center and picked up a coupon for a discount on a tour if we should decide to go through there later.



Back at the RV, there were three blossoms on my transplanted cactus.  Okay…I know I’m bringing this up too much, but I don’t have a green thumb and it should have died by now.


I was out on my walk before sunrise this morning and tried to catch it with my cell phone camera, but it doesn’t do it justice.


And then this afternoon, we drove up to Van Alstyne to see our friends Terry and Sylvia and our favorite little white dog Keeper.  Keeper is showing his age, but he seemed pretty happy to see us and we were happy to see him too!


And of course we had an enjoyable visit with Sylvia and Terry too!  Terry’s sister Brenda runs the Durning House in Van Alstyne and we had lunch there for Bubba Tuesday.  The chicken fried chicken lunch was the best we’ve had!

Sylvia and Terry.


We said our goodbyes and drove back to Wylie on the backroads to avoid heavy traffic.  I didn’t get a very good photo, but this cowboy limousine pulled out in front of us and we followed it for a while before it turned off on a side road.


We arrived back at camp for another quiet evening.
