Some of what we have been doing.

We spent a few days in San Antonio. Our truck was in the shop for some repairs. That gave us some time to spend with Tate and Shirley at their ranch.

We found a property that would be awesome to purchase. It is nice to have dreams.

We have gained a new friend, Karen. She designed a new cover photo for our Facebook travel page.

Pops and I are going to try to get back on track with our dieting.

The Doggies

Three years ago Pops and I were staying at a truckstop near Montgomery, Alabama. While Pops was resting, I sat in the front reading. I looked out the window and saw a very pregnant doggie hanging around. I throw her some of our dog treats and some bread and a couple other things. She slept outside our truck for hours. When I woke up the next morning, she was gone.
I have often wondered about her, and about her puppies. Every time we drive by there I think of her and if we stop there for fuel, I always search for her. But never have spotted her.

We got to stay at this truckstop this weekend. We even got the same exact parking space. Imagine my surprise when evening came and I saw her outside my window.

And this time she had friends with her, first was a big black lab. He was so shiny but very skinny. His eyes looked an awful lot like hers.

Then there was this little misfit. This one was wearing a collar.

Of course, I cleaned out our refrigerator and cupboards and threw them all of our leftover food. They stayed around for hours until it started to rain.
I was so happy to see the female again. I really love dogs. I would scoop up all strays if I could.

Last Sunday

Last Sunday we were on our way to Virginia Beach for a pickup. WE were passing near our good friends, Wayne and Nadine. Wayne is the evangelist at Pinetown, NC. He used to be Evangelist at our home church in PA. We decided to stop by and spend the day with them. 
We got there Saturday night and got to visit a little before bed.
Early Sunday morning we went in and Nadine had fixed us a breakfast of homemade biscuits and sausage gravy. Yum yum.
Then we walked over to Church
Pinetown Church of Christ



Wayne taught Sunday School and then preached. It was so good getting to hear him again. We sure do miss them. 
After church the four of us went to the next town for lunch. We ate at Golden Corral. 

Nadine hadn't slept well the previous night and I was having a horrible sinus headache so we went to the truck and they went to their house for some short naps.
After a while I walked back over and spent some more time with them catching up.
We went back to church for evening service and then we had to get moving. It was so good to be able to visit with them.

These houses are across the street from the church.

Got a little bird watching in before morning church.

Cornerstone Christian church

Pops and I got to worship in Montgomery, AL this morning. We have been here before.

We made a new friend. Her name is Blake. She is beautiful. Don't you love that red hair and her freckles?
We enjoyed our visit here.
