Thanks to all who gave to this country to be free!

That looks like Loyd Park? We like that place. You must have made your reservations for the holiday a year ago. It was a hoot on Halloween.

14 days? Since you were going to make that long drive from Arlington, you might as well stay a while.

We drive over the Joe Pool bridges every evening on our way home from work. The entire parking lot at the Oasis Restaurant is underwater! Wow.

Well, we finally had to leave Lloyd Park on Tuesday. We received a call from the Operations director about a lake close to Hwy 287 and Hwy 67, that they believed the earth dam was going to fail at anytime. As it was , it did not but also found out that my brother had passed away on Tuesday evening. We are headed to Virginia for his funeral.
Please pray for people that have been stricken with Alzheimer as it is a devastating disease.

Sorry for your loss. Alzheimer's is a nasty disease. We are dealing with it with my MIL. Horrible watching her. She lives with us and we have a nurse that comes and helps us during the day.

Don't want to hijack the thread. May post something later about this.

Does this now break the drought? Texas is a big state, did the rain fall in the area that needed the rain?

We've been very dry in the panhandle, this is a huge blessing even though we got it in a short amount of time, I'll take it anytime. I pray for those in dire straits
