Tres Rios RV Resort, Glen Rose, TX
Tuesday, Nov. 16th I was the first one up because Gibbs sensed my movement and came up with a kiss. 😊 I slipped into lunge pants and took him out for his first piddle and poop. What a greeting when I opened the door! It was so warm! We went back upstairs but since it was 7, I got dressed. I’d thought about a walk but made my tea instead and sat downstairs for a while. Bill joined me soon after.
The clouds were quite prominent first thing but by 9 they had cleared out of the area. We agreed to try and get on track with our eating, little by little, to skip the cereal and hold out for a decent brunch instead. I sat outside with Gibbs for a while and was impressed by how he behaved while other dogs and their owners walked by. A little admonishment was all that was required.
My orange patio chair has given up the ghost so we got out our 2020 Christmas gifts, the big bear chairs. 😊 I refused Gibbs a seat on my lap, hoping the little blue stool will be his ‘go to’ chair when outdoors. He seems to like it but he’s so involved in keeping security that he is on and off a lot right now. I don’t know what we’d do without his patrolling!
I brought him inside with Bill after an early coffee and took myself for a walk around the park. Time to check out the clubhouse, the ‘Palace’ rooms and the Lone Star Lodge near the back of the park. I also checked out the pool, which sadly is closed for the season?? Anyway, I walked in on the 10:00 am craft session but didn’t join although I was encouraged by the 8 ladies. Maybe another day.
We were informed of a Thanksgiving potluck on Saturday so I wandered up to the Office to see what was expected. Bill and I don’t like potlucks at campgrounds, plain and simple, even less when we’re with people we don’t know from Adam, BUT the list left it up to us what we wanted to bring which is better than being told ‘salad’, ‘dessert’, ‘potato dish’ etc. At home with family, I don’t mind it as much. 😊

At the end of the day, he decided it would go to the garbage after all
We had bacon and eggs at noon and that should get us through until supper. Bill went out to retrieve the canvas on my broken chair since there is nothing wrong with it. It may end up being garbage too but for now………we’ll keep it.
The day had warmed up to 79F/26C by noon hour so that pool would have been a real treat for this gal! Once the sun moves further west, it will be lovely sitting on our shaded patio with a breeze. Can you believe I’m saying that??
We talked about whether we wanted to gadabout, the stockyards being one thing, and we may head into Glen Rose one day for shopping and perhaps Stephenville to their Hometown Antique Mall or Cowboy Walk of Fame. The stockyards are an hour’s drive back to Fort Worth which would likely mean being away from Gibbs for at minimum 5 hours. We ruled that out this time although it would provide a lot of things to do. Another trip.

It is definitely shallow along here
I joined the boys on the patio, watching Bill work. It’s what I’m quite good at! 😊 He finished with the chair and then worked on the barbecue getting it working like new again. Good thing, we’ll need it soon. Gibbs and I went for a walk along the river/creek and it was almost too much for our furry little guy. He was pretty happy to be back home for a good long drink. Funny, at home, he tries to get to the water of the pond. Here, he wouldn’t get close enough to get a drink from the clear water.
The rest of the afternoon, Bill and I sat with our books. He finished his and I got pretty close. Gibbs was out with us the whole time and although he was somewhat of a nuisance when neighbours went about their business, he wasn’t terrible. It seemed like we said ‘stop barking’ a whole lot. At 4:30, the winds had us coming indoors, it has been quite strong all day long. With the heat, it did feel pretty nice though.

For supper, I heated up a pot of chili and we had it on toast. It has been thawed for a few days so I wanted to start eating it. I cooked some mixed veggies and reheated the corned beef that was leftover from a casino night. I threw the rye bread out. Gibbs had his supper and we stepped out into the light from our outdoor light so he could do his business. It is a lovely mild evening. 😊
A filling meal and some fridge items
This was a good day and we watched some programs on our PVR and recorded others before calling it a night. I’d snoozed in my chair when we came in from outside, but I still know I’ll sleep well tonight.

Thank you for the visit!
