Oct 20, 2017 - Texas Style Eiffel Tower

Oct 20, 2017 (Friday) Landyn helped me unhook the RV and get ready to leave this morning. She is a good helper. We left the park and headed into Oklahoma. Landyn said she had never been to Oklahoma so we headed home this way so she could add another state to the states she had been in. After checking into an RV park in Paris Texas, I took Landyn to see the Texas style Eiffel tower they have in Paris.

Oct 4, 2013 - Visit with Cindy and Bill

FRIDAY This afternoon I headed to Paris to spend the week end with cousins Cindy and Bill Walker. For dinner we had Papa Murphy’s pizzas and garden salad. I had brought in all my perishables so they wouldn’t go to waste before I got back to Austin. Of course we stayed up late talking. It was after 2:00 a.m. when I got to bed. SATURDAY This morning we went to a brunch at the Bois d’Arc Restaurant. The building was formerly a gasoline station. We all chose eggs benedict. It had been a long time since I had had them. They were presented a...

Mar 16, 2012 - Bugs on the Windshield

For truck drivers, having to wash the windshield off every time we get a chance is the heralding of Spring! I first noticed it a few days ago, when a bug, so huge it made me jump in my seat, splatting right in front of me! Looking around, I realized my windshield was actually quite coated with lots of little green, yellow and black blotches. This task is a difficult one for me; seeing I'm so short and the truck quite tall. Even with the long handled squeegee's that the truck stops provide, I'm sure the sight of my attempting to clean the...

Dec 27, 2010 - Gay Paree

Once we had the motor home set up and successfully introduced water into the holding tank (hallelujah, showers in the AM) we got in to Sara & Brian’s by about 4:30P on the 26th. We immediately bought some respect from the grandsons by strongly suggesting “Let’s have Domino’s for supper”. Of course the fact that the adults could then watch the Packers vs the Giants, with a little pepperoni and cerveza accompaniment had no bearing on my suggestion whatsoever. I think we even offered a little teaser of “ok, one present tonight, then the rest...

Jul 1, 2009 - a day in Paris

Wednesday July 1st, 2009 We got a good night’s rest and slept in the next morning. Madison and I rode our bikes for a while then Cynthia and I went for a walk. Dub and Genetta pulled up about the time we finished walking. We sat and visited with them a while then got ready and went into Paris to meet everyone else for lunch. We had lunch at Magel’s Grill then rode over to see the Eiffel Tower of Paris Texas. It has a red cowboy hat perched on the top of it. We then went to a western store where Chuck and Matthew shopped for boots. Matt...

Jun 30, 2009 - Meridian, MS to Paris, TX

Tuesday June 30. 2009 We got up Tuesday morning and headed towards Paris, Texas. We stopped for lunch at a place known for their home made fried pies. It was somewhere in Louisiana and was called The Cottage. The pies were twelve for $20. Cynthia wanted to take the relatives we were planning to visit some of the pies so she told the waitress she needed a couple dozen. Well, when seeing the variety of flavors they had she thought she better get three dozen. Next thing you know she was up to four dozen, and then she said, “Just give me a...

Apr 3, 2009 - Visit with Cousins, Bill and Cindy

FRIDAY This morning I saw a beautiful blue bird on the park bench right outside my office window. He stayed there quite a while surveying his kingdom, I guess. After work I drove to Paris to visit with Bill and Cindy Walker. I arrived shortly after 6:00. Cindy prepared a delicious dinner. Of course, we stayed up later than usual catching up on each other’s news. One thing I noticed right off was their new den furniture and big screen TV. It all looks very nice. SATURDAY We all slept late this morning. When we had finally gotten our eyes...

Nov 6, 2008 - Paris, Texas

Thursday November 6…11:00pm We had a nice drive out of the Ouachita National Forest this morning. We stopped at the Old Military Trail and went for a hike. This is hunting season, so we wore our “don’t shoot me” bright orange t-shirts. Leaving the hilly forest, the terrain quickly change to one of ranching…no crops growing here, but lots of cattle in the fields. As we got closer to the Texas border, we saw more and more people wearing cowboy hats, so we are definitely in ranching country. We tried stopping at a COE (Corps of Engineers)...

Jun 13, 2008 - Visit with Bill and Cindy

FRIDAY After work today I left directly from the Corps office to go to Paris, which is only about 65 miles east of Denison. I arrived at Bill and Cindy's house right at six o'clock. As soon as I had unloaded my things we left for Tigertown to attend a fund-raising barbecue dinner at the community center for the volunteer fire department. The meat was very tender and the side dishes were also good. I met a few of Bill and Cindy's friends there. SATURDAY In the wee hours this morning a thunder storm moved through the area and dropped quite a...

Feb 11, 2005 - New Location And A New Rig

New Location And A New Rig Feb 11, 2005 Wow how time has flown. We finished up the work walking the pipeline all the way to Carthage, TX. Then we did some work in Longview, TX and now we have moved to Shirley's RV Park in Paris, TX. In the meantime we took a look at the inventory of Hitch Hiker 5th wheels at Shady Pines RV Sales, in Texarkana and found a floor plan we really liked. We dickered around on the price and after settling on the deal we spent the weekend switching everything from our Cardinal to the new Hitch Hiker. It's really...
