Norman, Oklahoma

We learned our buddies, The Two Lindas, were moving from Port Aransas to Norman for their next assignment.  Also some of our campers in South Fork, The Smeals, live in Norman. So we decided to make a change in our prepared route to Amarillo and detoured from Sanger, Texas, and went up I-35 to Norman for the night.

We parked at Lake Thunderbird State Park and look at the view from our back window…..


We parked next to The Lindas and they came over and we got caught up on our individual activities…


And then Dave and Susie arrived to chime in on things….CIMG2409









I had prepared a couple of meals before we left Betty’s to eat on the road, so I had some beef stew already made. The Smeals brought a colorful salad and an apple pie from the newly opened Sprouts grocery store.


The Lindas brought over Dr. Praeger’s Veggie Burgers and I added a mixed green, bean, asparagus and mushroom medley.  It was quite a feast!


Into the night we chatted and exchanged experiences…..

Since Jim and I had gotten up unexpectantly early at 4 a.m. I threw everybody out at 8:30 p.m. because I was tired.  Yes, I know….it wasn’t very polite….but that’s how I am….at my age I can get away with being cranky that way.

Remember, you are loved.
