HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE
late and tired and with an oil soaked car, we just could not make it happen. We offered our appologies and made plans for a private showing later in the visit, which I'm sure we'll enjoy more, since we just want to watch them.
After sleeping in, setting up the RV, and getting cleaned up, we finally headed off to the car wash around 1pm, where it got off most of the oil - we could see out the windows then. This is the yet to be cleaned white tow dolly and most the car looked just the same.
Mamacita's, which is a local Mexican restaurant chain of five places, advertising authentic Mexican food and it had been recommended at the campground. We'd planned to have a light lunch and supper latter, but decided to make this our dinner instead - we got the only open table for less than 8 people. The menu did seem more like what would be found south of the border with many seafood and traditional Mexican dishes, rather than just the usual Tex-Mex we get at home.
We started with very good chips and two kinds of delicious dip for them, then Bev ordered a fairly traditional chille relleno with rice and refried beans. I forgot the camera, so these are courtesy of her do everything cell phone.
Frijoles A La Charra (pinto bean soup) - pinto's with bacon, onions, tomatoes, herbs, and spices - very good and will be tried at home.
Since we were pretty busy each day and having other travel issues, I didn't bother putting up the TV antenna on our way down here and our site here in San Marcos has a large tree in the way. Therefore I have been without TV or newspaper, two staples of my morning routine, since about 7am on Nov 14 and I'm actually survivng just fine - no withdraw symptoms, the earth is still rotating, I'm not frustrated hearing about the clowns in DC - I may make this permanent, but probably not.
After yesterdays post, son, Rhett, called early to check on us - laughing as the conversation began. In all fairness to the RV, the two major problems were road related.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.
