Hunger Games

My 21 yr old son and I went to see the first movie today of the premiere of the Hunger Games. It started at midnight last night.
Too fun.
It was shown in four theaters at the theater we went too. Mostly, it was 18-25 yr olds there.

Hiking trail in Big Bend National Park

Hiked the six mile round trip from Big Bend National Park Rio Grande Campground to the hot springs.
It's right across the rio grande from Mexico.
This is me looking at some handmade items that some people from mexico left displayed for sale on a rock on the trail. They leave a jar for people to put money in. Then they sneak in later to get it.
It's illegal for us to buy the items.

Above is a view from the trail down to the rio grande and across Mexico.

Franklin's Barbque Austin

Stood in line for two hours to get into Franklin's Barbque in Austin last weekend.

Travel Trailers

My new awning has come in! It is going to be installed today. Then I am going to put my travel trailer up for sale, in about a week, when I get moved out of it. It's a 2004 Sunline Solaris. 25 foot pristine condition.

I purchased a little bit longer one yesterday-- a 1985 airstream that is 31 feet.

Had dinner in Kerrville, TX yesterday.
Rails A Cafe At the Depot - (830) 257-3877
615 E Schreiner St, Kerrville, TX

Excellent food.

Bastrop TX restaurant

I drove to Houston yesterday to look at a 1988 Airstream that was for sale.
It was too cool but unfortunately had a pending sale.
I gave them my name in case it fell through.

Then I went to Bastrop TX and had dinner at Cedar's Grill. It has Mediterranean and Italian food.
I had the penne rustica, which was excellent.
My waiter was Peter, who gave outstanding service. He is Lebanese, and had great knowledge and explanation of the different dishes.
