Happy Birthday, Paul…

MARCH 8, 2015 LET ME INTRODUCE THE BIRTHDAY BOY. One of the nicest things about our stay at Buckhorn Lake this winter has been meeting and getting to know our “casita-neighbors” Paul Lozano and his wife JoAnn. They own the property right across the street from where we’re staying. They’ve welcomed us and made us … Continue reading »

Live theater at “The Garage” in Kerrville, Texas…

FEBRUARY 22, 2015 WE COULD KICK OURSELVES! We could just kick ourselves for not discovering until today the intimate VK Garage Theater here in Kerrville. I don’t know why it’s called “the Garage” but it doesn’t matter. Absolutely charming! We’ve not seen much live theater since we left home, so a couple weeks ago when … Continue reading »

Sunday brunch and a movie…

JANUARY 25, 2015 SUNDAY BRUNCH AND A MOVIE. Our Buckhorn friends have brunch most every Sunday at the cafeteria on the nearby campus of Schreiner University. Afterward, they take their dogs to the park so they can run around and get some exercise. We don’t have a dog, but we always have good appetites on … Continue reading »

Grey skies and black ice…

JANUARY 8, 2014 IT’S COLD IN THE HILL COUNTRY!  So cold that we’re having second thoughts about spending next winter here, even though we love the area. Perhaps we’ll return for a visit in the fall but leave for the Gulf Coast or Florida right after Thanksgiving.  Who knows? Anyway, the low temperature last night … Continue reading »

Ranching and exotic animal hunting near Kerrville…

DECEMBER 13, 2014. It was cold and blustery at Buckhorn this morning, so we decided to put the town of Kerrville in our rear view mirror and take a drive in the country. We wanted to see some of the large ranches outside of town and get some photos of the animals we hoped to … Continue reading »

Cold weather in Kerrville…

KERRVILLE, TEXAS NOVEMBER 15, 2014. IT’S COLD IN KERRVILLE! I’m glad we left Wyoming, pushed through Colorado and headed to Texas when we did. It’s only been a few weeks since we were in Casper and yesterday the temperature there dipped to 27 degrees below zero! I don’t know what we’d have done in that kind of … Continue reading »

Kerrville’s Museum of Western Art…

NOVEMBER 6, 2014. Today was the day for our visit to the Museum of Western Art in Kerrville, “our hometown for the Winter.” (Typically, RV’ers who spend the winter in a warm climate state are called “Snowbirds.” In Texas, however, we’re called “Winter Texans.” Why? Don’t know. Doesn’t matter. Just interesting. Even though I’ve got … Continue reading »

Daddy Jim’s Quality Meat Market…

OCTOBER 30, 2014. A GOOD BUTCHER SHOP. It often takes a bit of searching to find a good piece of beef these days. Most markets don’t stock anything even remotely tempting anymore. Perhaps it’s because of the hefty price tag attached to a good steak, I’m not sure, but the meat available at your local … Continue reading »
