Roger and I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, filled with family and friends. It remains my favorite holiday and this year, we are in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area enjoying family and friends.
We left Sulphur, Oklahoma, early Sunday morning, driving Ok 7 to I - 35 south to Grapevine Lake. We are parked at Vineyards RV park and our spot looks onto the lake.

Lots of traffic!

The marina is across the lake from us.
On Monday morning we drove 25 miles to downtown Ft. Worth where my Mother lives in Sundance Square. Her apartment is on the 11th floor with spectacular views from her patio.

Two new office buildings are under construction in downtown Ft. Worth.
Tuesday and Wednesday were spent doing lots of errands. We decided to find a doctor in the Ft. Worth area for yearly checkups. Hooray, we found a winner, who is very happy in his practice and does not want to retire (our last two retired) for many years. Additionally, he has a lab in his facility so no more running around for blood work.
On Turkey Day we went to my brother and sister-in-law's home in Ft. Worth. We enjoyed our visit with family so much. Thank you to Diann and Chris for including us in this wonderful American celebration.
Chef Diann (my sister-in-law) took a quick break for me to snap this picture.

How very thankful Roger and I were to be included in my friend Becky's Thanksgiving dinner on Friday. Becky lives in Dallas and we have been friends for many years. All three of her children, their spouses and her brother were at her delicious dinner. The guys had been to the Cowboy/ Redskin game on Thursday, that is why we had the dinner on Friday. Thank you Becky for a magical time.

What an incredible week, filled with family and friends, in the beautiful Fall weather of Texas. Roger and I are thrilled to be here at this special time of the year. Thank you for checking in with us. See you next week.
