If you can meet with Triumph and disaster and treat those two Impostors just the same, if you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken Twisted by names to make a Trap for fools, or watch the things you gave your life to broken and stoop and build them up with worn out tools, yours is the Earth and everything that's in it, and which is more, you'll be a man my son. IF by. Rodger Kipling.
Starting the day with a poem that I heard on the fourth hour of The Today Show with Hoda and Kathy Lee.
We woke up on this another travel day, hating to leave this very nice KOA in Abelen TX. We left about 9:30 , there is alot to do. We did our normal travel day moving routine. We have a master list before we leave that we go over together. So we do not forget anything. We headed out towards lake Texoma for a 6-day stay at a Thousand Trails. The travel day started out very nice, Not a lot of traffic, most of it seemed to be because of all the oil fields around. If you are selling white trucks, you would be very wealthy, that's all you see out here, very dirty ones, mind you. We always see rest areas early in the day when we do not need them. But later we couldn't find one, finally we pulled into a Pilot, just so we could go potty, grab lunch, and fuel up, in that order. We only stopped one time today. We arrived TT Lake Texoma a little after 1:30. No one man's the guard shack there so we went inside. She told us where some 50 amp sites were. Here you have to pay for electric for your 50 AMP, also found out later reading their paperwork if you have a pull through site, you have to pay for that too, doesn't matter if you have 30 or 50 amp. Also you can only stay on pull throughs for 10 days or less. Also it says use water as you need, no washing Rigs or vehicles unless you are a member staying over 14 days, according to their paperwork, never heard all that before. Which is fine, they all have there Thing. The place is quite large Close to 400 acres, with about a 180 sites. Most we've seen were all very large and quite nice. We had to decide between a back in with an old picnic table and no fire ring, a huge site with a picket fence out front. Or a pull through site where you face out to the front, someone can park directly behind you so you're back to back in other words. That's the one we chose, seems like there's a lot of empty sites so no one, chances are would even go in there. We will be here for six nights so Jim put a lot of things out we have not done for a long time. Like the flag, table cloth for picnic table and larger rug. They said they didn't sell firewood, but he can pick up whatever was dead laying around, which was a lot. After he got set up outside and I finished doing inside things, also put out alot of things I didn't do for a while. Which makes it feel so much more like home, we were both looking forward to not moving for a while. We ate the last of the vegetable soup. Then I used the last of the turkey meatballs in the freezer, I made a little spaghetti in the pot. Had salad,for dinner. Jim made a fire, I watched TV alone, went in and out a few times. I walked over to the family center to look around. It is right across the road from us. Lovely night sky and fire. Very quite, NO one around.
