Kids Visit // Back At Camping World


Sandi, Mary and Charlie arrived just before 11:00 pm on Wednesday and we all went to bed soon after.  Since neither Sandi or I eat very much it made no sense to cook a full turkey, so we had decided to get a turkey breast.  I cooked it in the slow cooker with veggies and did some easy side dishes.  I turned out to be a light Thanksgiving Dinner and we even had left overs.  I did have to work in the afternoon in the office (but only for and hour, we closed early)   and Charlie came with me and helped in the store.   Since it gets dark so early, we all went to bed early. 

Since it was Black Friday, we decided to check out the San Marcos Outlet Mall. Neither one of us had a lot of money to spend or really needed anything, so we just went into a few stores.  Sandi did find a T shirt that she has been looking for and I found a set of Orgreenic Cookware.  I already had the sauté pan and  like it.  When I got home I got rid of the old and put away the new.

Then we went to Landa Park in New Braunfels where took pictures and just messed around.  That’s Charlie, Sandi and Mary posing with the geese in the picture above.

We didn’t stay long or see too much of the park as I had to be back to go to work by 3:00 pm.  Charlie came along again and made himself useful.  Sheila even let him drive one of the golf carts.   He wanted to have a campfire, so we got some wood before we went home. 

Saturday started out with a black water issue.  Friday we dumped the black water, but it seemed to be stopped up and wasn’t flowing very well and decided to take care of it in the morning.  We tried using the Sani-Flush to fill it and tried to dump again, still stopped up!   I also had a wand attachment for a hose to use in the toilet.  Then we tried using the back flush portion of the clear plastic connection that attaches to the sewer hose.  That seemed to work, but also used the wand again trying to clear the sensors.  That must be the problem as it still reads the same as it has been for a while.  I think that I will get 20 #s of ice at Buckee’s  before I head back to the park after all the repairs are done to “My Spot”.

I didn’t have to work, so later we went to the Aquarena in San Marcos and check out the glass bottom boats.  I took a lot of pictures, but will tell you all about it in another post.  Later when we got home Charlie got his campfire. 


Sunday morning Sandi and the kids had to leave to get back to Fort Worth.  We all had a good Holiday.

Yes I’m back at Camping World (CW) again.  They finally got the approval from the Insurance Company.  It may take a couple of days to get it all done. 

Colleen, of Traveling with Long Dogs met me at CW and we went out for breakfast.  Thank you Colleen for breakfast.  There was a lot to catch up on since the Pink Flamingos’ GTG.  From there we made a stop at the oldest bakery in TX, and the Christmas Shoppe, also in New Braunfels.

Then we went to Gruene, TX to check out all the little shops in the old downtown and uptown areas.  Angel was happy to get out and walk with us.   She even got to go in the some of the stores as long as I held her,  She couldn’t be happier.

I had not been to Gruene before, it’s a neat little town.  The only thing that called to me to buy was some Fickle Pickles.  Yummy !!

We headed back to CW where I will spend the night.

Thanks for visiting
