Cold Weather and Marley

Texas has been having some unseasonable weather of late. We have been very chilly for the past few days. It's too cold to go to the island out to the beach, so we decided to go to the movies. We saw Marley and Me. What a great movie for pet lovers. We could really identify with the whole story. Tom had read the book, and really wanted to see it. Our daughter had seen it and went home to hug her dogs. On Tuesday night you can get free popcorn. We went in the afternoon, so we didn't have that option.
Before it was movie time we went to see if our friends Leona and Joe were at The Lagoons. We stayed there last year for a week in the late fall before going to Livingston. They worked in Minnesota where we worked. It was good to see them. We had a nice chat for about an hour, and off we went. After a stop at an RV dealer, it was off to the movies. After the movie we stopped and bought a pizza to bring home. It wasn't too bad.
If the weather cooperates tomorrow, we plan to go the Port Aransas for the ferry to the island. On the way home we'll stop for some shrimp. We saw some of the shrimp boats today while driving around, and they were much smaller than the ones up in Palacious. Can't wait to taste some.

I am feeling your pain with the cold weather, of course in Liverpool we have ice and snow as well. As cheesy as it sounds, I am hoping for a snow day tomorrow (surely you remember those?) even though we just got back to school after the break. texas sounds wonderful.......we were all set to tow and go to SC and Don got cold feet when he saw we might have a bad traveling day on the way home, so ours just got put away until the spring. rest up there old folks, some of us still have to work.
