Foggy Sunday Over the Lake

I was up a little after the sun came up. It was a nice morning so I poked my head out of the Roadrunner. Next think I knew I was snapping pictures. Something about fog over the lake makes for some good photos.
Ed (Kelly's dog) and I went for a walk and took some more pictures. I don't know what kind of bird this is but he took off in all his majesty and found a perch on top of a tree. And posed for a couple of pictures. :)
After our walk, the sun was coming out so I took a few more pictures of our camp site.
Then Kelly and I went over to Jo and Andy's. They are good friends of ours from our Air Force days in San Bernardino CA in the 1980's. They have a home near Aledo, TX. Shown below is Kelly (with Dante who is Katherine's son) Andy, Jo and Katherine.
Jo has a knack of making pastries and offered to make some cinnamon rolls if we'd come by and pick them up. That was a no-brainer...they were great.

We then spent most of the day at the hospital with Sue. She was going to be released yesterday but after a blood test they found that it was not thick enough (my non-medical description). After being on blood thinners for the knee replacement surgery, her blood was not coagulating enough to suit the doctors. So that was a disappointment.

Otherwise she is doing remarkably well. She looks great and can swing he leg around pretty well when she gets up to go to the bathroom or goes for a walk around the hallways. Her spirits are up (no surprise) and she is ready for home!

We stayed there most of the afternoon, then met Brad at his house to fix dinner (Pam heated up a casserole and made a salad). After I did the dishes we watched football for a few minutes. Brad went back to the hospital for a while and we went back to the Roadrunner.

The thunderstorm of a couple of days ago, knocked out DirectTV signal out of whack. We watched Sunday Night Football on NBC with our antenna and it came in great. I'll have to call Direct TV to see what's up with not being able to lock on to the satellite.

That finished up our day.
A special hello to new followers Rod and Debbie Charette-Detweiler.
And thanks to you all for taking a peak at the Roadrunner Chronicles!
Hope you have a great week!


  1. Something about fog is eerie yet it quiets the soul. Thanks for great blog.

  2. I love your descriptions Randy - "don't know what kind of bird this is" and for the blood "it was not thick enough". That's the kind of talk I can understand!! Great stuff!

  3. Looks like you're having fun. Isn't RVing great?
