A LOVEly Day

Valentine’s Day means different things to each of us; a romantic get-away, that special gift, flowers, candy, with card, or simply just spending the day together.  Then there are others who think it’s just a commercial gimmick to pressure you into emptying your pockets.   Regardless of your perspective about Valentine’s Day; it is a day to remind you to LOVE YOURSELF! 

For us it is a special day; as this is the date in 1997 when we became a couple.  There was group that decided to go to the West End in downtown Dallas for happy hour/dinner and then enjoy the live entertainment; however everyone except four backed out in the last minute.  That left Jerry and I (both single) and a couple that just announced their engagement… and the rest is history in the making.

We have done all the things mentioned above; but in time realized we just enjoy spending the day together.  After all; it’s that what you really want – time with your love one!   

Dinner with friends @ Grubstake

We hope your day was LOVEly my friend....
 Jerry, Deb, and Max

Back from the Break: Taking the Wheel

Finally Back from the Break:  I know it’s been awhile since I posted anything, but I couldn’t seem to keep up with all that was going on in January.  However, I will promise to get you an updated this week, so not only can you be up-to-date, but I can be also.  

If you have been following our blog, you might recall that we upgraded our living courts from a 29’ Class C to a 39’ Class A motorhome in June 2012.  Man it’s crazy how 10’ can be so intimidating, but just like the Class C, I’m bound to conquer the task – I will drive this one too.  

Jerry finally got the hang of handling the coach; however I have been intimidated by the BIG Beast.  Well until today – Woo Hoo!!   Got to start somewhere and I thought the desert was a good place to start.  Wish me luck, as I continue trying to master how to drive this big beast in the desert, down the highway, though town, and even park it in tight quarters.

Glad you hung in there with us,
Jerry, Deb & Max
