Work will start soon!

We have been here for two weeks and have been in negotiations for buying the lot next to us. It was our plan to put a canopy up over the motorhome and as we worked on those plans, Terry lamented on how nice it would be to have a little extra room. We have heard repeatedly that the people who own the neighboring lot had purchased the lot for their retirement and were not interested in selling. But one never knows. Even if this was true, situations change and we thought perhaps they would entertain the notion. They did and we came to an agreement on the price and yesterday we traded money for the deed. It is our intention now to add concrete and stone and move the motorhome over about 15 feet and put the canopy up. Eventually we will add a coordinating shed, but for now we will use the one already in place on our lot. So now begins the process of getting the permits and running services over to where we wish to park the motorhome. We are anxious to get started. I will keep updating as the work progresses.

We went with Mom and Dad to the hall for Thanksgiving dinner. We had a great meal and it was nice not to have a lot to clean up. We have been to Furr's to eat once, Gonzales Burgers once, the Starz drive -in once and the Crazy International Buffet once. Not bad for two weeks. We really are now trying to concentrate on eating out of the coach as we packed a lot of food into it from the "storage condo" before we left Goshen.

We are going to go to Mexico tomorrow and see what bargains we can find. I have a few things I would like to get for the "new" place, so we shall see.

Till next time. . .
