Christy, Not to worry, priorities are important! Family always comes first!

Richard, I'm going to call Sonnie today, maybe he has an idea on a good steakhouse in the area. I'll let you know if we can find one that has a place for us to park overnight after dinner.

Did you try to sign up on http://www.texasbusroundup.com/ or http://texasbusroundup.ning.com/ The last one is the only one you can join, the other is just for pictures and history of Texas Bus Roundup.

Thanks for your interest!

Most Honorable Mr. Dreamscape Sir:

I'm not sure of that one, but I'll take it! You have a great sense of humor and well received!

Danke schön!* (DAHNK-uh shoon) Thank you!

Sounds like Donkey Chin with a little of a southern accent.

Are you talking about a steakhouse around Choctaw KOA/Durant?  If so, there is a Sports City Cafe just on the south side of casino.  Their food is pretty good and generally have live entertainment on the outside patio.  (Don't eat the roast, last time I had it --tough, tough, tough)  I usually can't get past the chicken fried steak, so do not know if their steak is any good.  Also, there is an awesome Mexican Food place/Salita's in Durant proper.  Paul. don't you know that Sonnie's bus only knows the way to the Choctaw parking lot, very little periphial, the only exception is Salita's.

I haven't seen anything from Bob and Sandy, are they coming?

Christy, you and your family are in our thoughts.  Hope things are great for you to be able to come.

We are planning on going Wed. so Paige can spend the night on the bus, see all of you soon. 

BTW, not cold here today but long sleeve weather, probably be 105 this upcoming weekend Lips Sealed, bring a jacket just in case.

Thanks Brenda!  We appreciate it.

So far, things are looking up. . .  he was released to a skilled nursing center for rehab, and I got the doctor to not only write it down in the release orders, but also tell it to his face that he would NOT be allowed to drive for six weeks.  He elected to forego the skilled nursing center that was approved by his insurance company, and chose to go to the one where his wife, Larry's mom, is (which he will have to self-pay). . ..  Is that not just sweet? 

We're hoping that he will continue to improve and that he will agree to stay in the home with her, rather than trying to move back home later and then drive back and forth again.  If he elects to stay, we still might finagle getting down to TBR, if not, well, we'll be standing watch and shuttling him back and forth.  Keep your fingers crossed, because I fear if he goes home, he'll not live another two months, so our best chance of keeping him alive is if he gives in and stays there.  I'll keep you guys updated, thanks again, Christy Hicks

Brenda, I guess I should have called you huh! Grin I called Sonnie to get some ideas in the area and he mentioned Texas Roadhouse. Not exactly local, but it's close to WM anyway.

We are meeting Richard and Missy Bishop just north of Fort Worth, then will head to Sherman. Overnight at WM, get BBQ grub on Thursday morning then head to Durant. See y'all Thursday morning around 9-10 am.

Bob and Sandi will be there, along with a bunch of newcomers!

Christy, If you are able to make it great! Otherwise we'll see you in Carthage! We will pray that Larry's Dad gets the best care possible and where ever he stays it will be best for him.
