Just Chillin!

I enjoy reading the blogs, but have been really depressed and haven't felt like posting. I am depressed over my oldest daughter who is in a comatose state and in a nursing home. Last week she was in Hospice, not expected to last very long. This week, she is doing better, and they moved her back to the nursing home. She is on my mind day and night.
I am not happy in the apartment, and just don't know how I am going to get out. Some way I will, just haven't figured it out yet.
I just keep asking for strength, and guidance.

Trouble with Blogger?

Seems like I am having trouble with Blogger. Some of the blogs I read are not updating. I tried to contact Pidge by e mail to see if she is ok, and was not able to send e mail. What is going on?

Lake Whitney,Texas on fire!

This is just across the dam from where I had my lease lot at Thousand Trails. I always worried about fire when I was there. There was so much dry brush just behind my rig. I walked all through the fields and found stashes of dead tree limbs they had cut and old wooden post. I thought if it ever caught fire, I would never get hooked up in time to get out. I saw on my Facebook page they had moved campers to Bay Landing TT/N preserve at Bridgeport, Texas. However there has been many fires close to it also. The reason they had the Whitney preserve  campers move was, they have no electric. There are many park models there, I wonder what those people will do.
Spent most of the day, daydreaming about getting back on the road, and what kind of rig I would get.
I think, because I already have the truck, hitch,brake controller, which is pretty new, I should look for another fifth wheel, smaller, and hopefully easier to handle. We will see. When I am making plans to travel, to the desert of course, I am Happy! If I thought I would have to live here the rest of my life, I think I would just cut my throat!

More smoke and fires today

So many homes lost in the Bastrop,TX area. About seven hundred so far. Many people only had fifteen minutes to get out, and let the animals go. Many horses,cows,goats, and pigs were found wandering around and without food or water for days. A shelter has been set up for the animals as well as people. People that have lost everything are helping feed and water the animals. Ain't Texans great? I am proud to be a Texan, we all pull together and help one another. Have to say we have wonderful fire fighters from all over the states come to help us. People are just amazing! Firemen as far away as Alaska, and N.Dakota are here to help. Hope we will get a good rain soon. I have heard from some of my RV friends that live in that area, and so far they have not lost their home. I haven't been out today, I do have a heart problem and don't want to breathe any "smoke or haze". I think most of my breathing problems are from allergies anyway.

Smoke in the air

There seems to be smoke in the air. Not too bad here in Central Texas. I have RV friends that live close to Bastrop, and Austin. I have been hoping to hear from them. One lady live close to Holland,TX and doesn't do computer stuff! The scenes on TV of the fires are really sad. So many homes lost. We need a good long soaking rain. I may have to get out and do my raindance. Seems like I remember when I was a kid and we were in a drought, air planes salted the sky. 
The weather was a little cooler, but not really blanket weather for me. We had 63 days of temps over 100, most days 107, so I am grateful for any drop of temp. Pretty soon, we will all be saying it's too cold!

Cold front?

Texas may be on "fire" but we sure are having some nice weather. A little cold front came in yesterday with strong winds, not good for our fires, but it reduced the temps to a daytime high of 80. It is dropping to 50 tonight. Time to break out the blankets! I feel so much better in cooler weather. It has been so hot I really haven't felt like doing anything. It is an effort just to go and get my mail. The wind gusts of 30 mph didn't help my allergies, but I took a "pill" and seem to have less sneezing and dripping today. Otherwise, just biding my time, hanging in there.
