Merry Christmas to All

     Hello to everyone. We have had a busy few months; we hope to get our blog all caught up on our life as nomads. We are in Texas parked on Falcon Lake in Zapata. About 50 miles south of Laredo. George has been fishing, and catching lots of fish. He hauls home crappie for the freezer and catches and releases the bass.

     I keep busy here in our little home. Lots of projects are on the shelf waiting for my attention. My first love has become writing and I spend a lot of time at the computer, sometimes staring at it, a lot of time researching stuff. I spent a whole day trying to figure out if there was a highway through the Cascade Mountains back in 1910 for a story I am writing. You know, ya gotta get the facts right.

     We are parked on the shore of Falcon Lake. Although the water is low, it is still a beautiful place. I love to look at it. Not the old Mississippi but almost as beautiful.

     Following is a poem that I recently wrote for an on-line writing club. As Christmas is upon us, I decided to share it with you. I hope that you enjoy it. We wish all of you a blessed Christmas and a grand 2013. We promise to stay in touch, as we have a new adventure on the horizon to talk about.

Baby Jesus and Lamb








Papa, a Star


Papa, Papa, is that a star?

Papa, Papa, is this the night?

I'm ready to go. Will Mama go too?

May I take my pet lamb? She's very light


You have told me the story

You have taught me well

A Savior is coming

Old Prophets doth tell


The star is so big

And it hovers so low

I hear voices singing

Papa, Papa I think we should go


Please take me Papa

I wish to go see

Does He know who we are?

Papa, will He really know me?


I know it's not far

We must follow the star's ray

We're not lost Papa

The star's showing the way


Papa, please lift me up high

I want to see what you see

Oh Papa! Oh Papa!

It's a tiny baby


The great star, Papa

Look at it now

They are angels, oh look

Before Him, they bow


Papa kneel with me now

Please kneel, all of us

For there is our Savior

Baby Jesus


I want to give Him a gift

Papa what shall it be?

Something pure and soft

My baby lamb, with love, from me
