Evans Escapades - A Week in the LIFE

We left the Thousand Trails Park on Lake Conroe a couple of weeks ago. . .
here's a shot of the boat docks from the park. . .no wonder the folks who live around the lake are screaming about the city taking an additional fifteen million gallons of water due to the drought. . .wow!

While we were there, we attended the not so great Cajun Festival. . .only worth it if you considered the entrance fee as going to a good cause, since it was a fundraiser for something or other. . .but. . .when the bus dropped us off. . .there was this beautiful mural. . .

I had no idea that Montgomery Country was the birthplace of the Texas Flag. . .hmmm. . .guess I'll be doing some research on that little tidbit of information. . .well, well, well. . .whaddayaknow. . .their website says they are considered to be  the birthplace of the Texas Flag. . .the guy who designed it lived there after all. . .but even Wikipedia gives them the credit. . .and they got this beautiful mural that says so. . .soooo. . .all righty then. . .that's good enough for me!



 So here we are in the beautiful town of College Station TX, until Thanksgiving. . .nothing much going on.

 I've dropped Dave off at the fire field a couple of times, so he can go do his thing. . .


We've found a great church to attend while we are College Station residents. . .felt like home from the moment we walked  in.  It's always great to feel at home worshiping with God's People. . .

 So even though nothing exciting is going on, I enjoy these down times to catch up on miscellaneous things that get overlooked when we are in travel mode. . .like filing. . .joy joy!. . .dusting. . .ha!. . .reading. . .now there's a good one!. . .and so on. . .
 We have a couple more weeks here. . .then we'll head to Cleveland TX for Dave's Thanksgiving Day Family Reunion. . .and then on to Houston, where we plan to be very, very busy, catching up with grands, family, eye doctor appts. . .and such. . .until Christmas.  . .

Enjoy your holidays!
