Happy Birthday Gerry

Happy Birthday Gerry

Once again Gerry is celebrating her birthday on the road in the motor home.  It seems we are always heading west about this time and she get cheated out of her birthday celebration.  Cassie & Family did come to the cabin and give her a birthday gift and my gift to her will be later this afternoon when we get to Amarillo.

I am taking a small liberty with the photo below since our birthdays are so close.
She is still as beautiful as the day I met her March 25, 1956.

Gerry has been getting phone calls and emails all day wishing her a happy birthday.  It's nice to have so many friends and family remember your special day

Just as we were getting ready to hookup the car and leave the campground this morning, the heavens opened up and poured down rain.  It was so heavy we couldn't hardly see the end of the campground row that we were in.  It let up a little and we hurried up and finished hooking up the car and disconnecting the motor home from the power, sewer, water and cable hookups and hit the road.

It rained very hard for about 70 miles and letup a little and then started raining hard again.  There wasn't much traffic so I just took my time and kept the motor home on the road.  That is more than I can say for three other people in cars and a pickup who spun out of control and wrecked.  One car was in the west bound lane and heading east.  Figure that one out.

The rain finally slowed down to a sprinkle for the last 100 miles or so and it was a nice drive.  We stopped at a Texas rest area to check out a geo cache and I picked it up and added it to the list.

We pulled into the Oasis RV Park west of Amarillo about 3pm after a 225 mile drive and got a real nice campsite.  Of course, all the sites here are nice and very large with concrete driveways and sitting area.  Cable tv, wifi, swimming pools come with the site.  We have stopped here a number of times and really like the place.  The clerk said new owners were taking over the park on Monday and nobody knows what changes there will be.  We will have to wait and see if it remains one of our favorite parks.
