At last update,
we were in San Antonio, Texas.
07/01/09 WEDNESDAY SAN ANTONIO, TX
morning, Judy and I were busy getting ready for our upcoming land adventure to
South America. Taking care of
packing, bank business, utility concerns, and all the chores necessary to
prepare for an extended absence managed to steal away every minute of every
hour. At the bank, we obtained our
American Express Travelers Checks and a reasonable supply of crispy, new series
dollars. In most foreign countries,
American Express TC’s are the most recognized.
It is equally important to have new series, untainted dollar bill.
Most money exchanges and changers will not accept torn, worn, or older
bills due to the problems of counterfeit activities.
of our day was the opportunity to visit with good friends.
Living about 30 or 40 minutes north of us, Jack and Mary Kelly have a
lovely home in the Texas foothills. I
always enjoy the times when we can visit with them.
Jack continues as Chief Pilot for a major player in the trucking
industry. I had the good fortune to work with Jack for several years
It was a great time to
relax and enjoy at poolside. This
is Texas Hill Country living at its finest.
As you might expect,
Mary was a very gracious hostess for our visit. She
planned, organized, and delightfully implemented a wonderful dinner featuring
Mexican style fajitas with all the imaginable fixin’s.
Judy enjoyed a
wonderfully relaxing afternoon and evening…
Of course, Jack and I
had lot of reminiscing to do. It
was lots of fun to catch up on all the new developments in his life and he was
interested in the adventures and experiences that we’ve had.
I must admit that I often miss the kind of times we shared together over
the years. I will always appreciate
the memories. What better way to
commiserate than over a good cigar and a cold drink?
We had such a
wonderful time that literally flew by in a flash.
Somehow, someway, it was almost 11:30pm before we left for home.
SAN ANTONIO, TX
Both days were busily
occupied with last minute planning, packing, re-packing, and accomplishing
various tasks in readiness for our trip. It
was mind boggling to even view the list of stuff that still needed to be done.
We are not the type of adventurers that rely on a travel company for our
trip organization. In harmony with
Judy, I endeavor to do the all the itinerary planning on my own.
At times, it is a daunting task, however, we find that it results in a
totally independent adventure filled with uniquely satisfying times.
As time permits, I
will chronicle our experiences, provide lots of photos, and attempt to
journalize our daily activities. Whether
for sole entertainment enjoyment for armchair travelers, or to provide
information that might be helpful to others that wish to plan their own trips,
you are invited to embark with us as each update is published.
Above all, please enjoy… Please
let us know how you enjoy the trip…
