Deep In The Hills Of Texas

The stars at night - are big and bright
Deep in the hills of Texas.
The prairie sky - is wide and high
Deep in the hills of Texas.
The cowboys cry - ki-yip-pie-yi
Deep in the hills of Texas.

We’re Here!!!  Deep In The Hills Of Texas.  Ki-yip-pie-yi !!!  It stays lighter later at night, so that means it’s darker later in the morning.  Thanks to Alex, you’ll be able to read this entry this morning rather than in the evening.  He came in at oh six thirty hours and shook me awake (well, actually meowed me awake).  

We arrived yesterday around fifteen hundred hours after a six hour uneventful trip.  We made two fuel stops and one lunch stop along the trip which meant that we traveled at a nice casual pace.  The traffic wasn’t too awfully busy either which made it a fairly nice stress free drive.

There were signs of spring springing all along the way.  The trees are budding and putting forth their leaves while wildflowers adorn the fields.  Judy attempted to snap a few pictures, but they turned out blurry.  Finally we rolled into San Antonio.

And then it was onto the Hill Country.  Here’s Winne leading the way into the Hill Country of Texas.


We’re now sitting at the very top of the hill here at Top Of The Hill RV Resort.  Once we managed to get everything set up, it was Martini Time at Mike and Peggy’s.  We sat on the picnic table where we had nice views all the way around.  You’ll see Winne and CC up on their pedestals on top of the hill.

Our tummies began to whine “Feed me, Feed me” so we made the trip down the hill to Po-Po’s Restaurant where we managed to satisfy our hunger pangs.  The food was good but, in my opinion, not great for that pricey of a place.  My onion rings would have been delicious had they been served hot plus the server messed up the orders so that Judy didn’t get her broccoli until half way through the meal.  Then we had to wait for our bills which were messed up as well.  But, we were having fun chit chatting so we weren’t too inconvenienced, however, the tip reflected our displeasure.


And here are some daffodils just to prove that Spring is indeed springing here in the Hill Country of Texas.


Today, being a nice sunny day, you’ll find us in San Antonio doing the tourist “thang”.  More about that tomorrow. 

So from Deep In The Hills Of Texas, Take Care and May God Bless  - - - - - - - - -
