Today we woke to the pitter patter of light rain. With the promise that the rain would become heavier in the next day or so, we decided to get out and about.
So, for the first time, since I have been in South Texas, I put on my flip-flops and headed out for the day. For those of you who don’t know…if I get to wear my flip-flops….it is a good day! LOL
Our first stop was
the local post office. Rod…you will be pleased to know that no matter what day of the week it is or which South Texas location you go to…it is always busy. So, don’t worry about your pension….it is doing well and good.
After the post office, we decided to take a drive up towards Edinburg. When we were here several years ago, there was this great little Mexican eatery and bakery. I wanted to go and find it…and I could just taste those great little pastries. We programmed the location into FLO and headed that way…only to find out that it was no longer in business and had been replaced with
a liquor store. What a disappointment…but, I guess someone was watching out for me and I was saved from using a whole lot of extra Weight Watcher points.
The Edinburg area has
developed a lot since we were here last and we were amazed. We even found a new
Wal Mart and who can’t resist a trip through Wal Mart. Well, not us any way, and we came out with our share of things we couldn’t do without. LOL
We also saw a
Schwan’s delivery truck and stopped to pick up a catalogue for the possibility of a future order. They have some really great food items and the driver confirmed that they would deliver to our RV Park.
Now, after all this food talk, Mark was getting hungry, so we decided to try a place that was new to us…
Thanks Rod and Deb for telling us this was a good choice. We really enjoyed it…great grilled chicken and the tortilla soup was excellent.
Now, you would think after Wal Mart, Schwan’s and lunch, food would be the last thing on our list….but no, I still needed to stop at HEB for a few items we didn’t find at Wal Mart.
By this time
the sky was beginning to darken and we knew the rain was not far away, but I had one more thing on my list and that was to find the location for my Weight Watcher meeting on Thursday. So, we headed west out 83 where we found
From here, we did decided it was time to
head back to the RV park before the rain settled in for the evening. On the way we noticed that
It has truly been a great day all through the town in my flip-flops.
