On To Retama

As always, Fredericksburg was a great stopover on our way to the RGV.  Along with Rod, Deb, Garry and Pat, we had lots of fun visiting,




and shopping.

And, as always, with friends the time passes by all too fast and yesterday we had to say so long to Rod and Deb as they headed out to Rockport.  We too were heading out and on to Retama, our winter home in the RGV.  Garry and Pat were staying in Fredericksburg for another couple of days.

We had an uneventful trip and arrived at Retama early afternoon.  We were soon


parked and had things all set up.

This morning, Mark was out early and ready to get started with the


clipping and snipping of the shrubs.  I started in on the cleaning for the coach house and the laundry.

This afternoon, Kathy and I helped out in the club house with the making of the Bierocks, a German meat pie, that would be part of


our Octoberfest Dinner tonight.

It is fun being back


and seeing friends that have become like family.  We are looking forward to a great season here at our winter home in the RGV.

Drop by occasionally, and see what's happening!


  1. Loved Fredricksburg!! Got yard art at that place west of town on the main road, metal goat and roadrunner, they had fabulous stuff! And interesting shopping and driving around looking at the old houses!!!

  2. Have a great time at Retama...Are you going back to Ft Worth for the holidays?

  3. Good to see that you are both safe. Have a good stay and keep us informed.

  4. Have fun at Retama!!! Tell everyone hello for us. We're in Florida but are leaving today heading for North Ranch. Should be there by Thanksgiving. Hugs..............Pat
