Nice pictures, everybody. We hated to miss, but glad to see (and meet) a few of you when we visited. Good job, Bruce!

I don't personally know the names of the camp hosts but had an interesting coversation with a man while packing to leave. He said he and his wife had been coming to Blanco for years. He lost her about 3 years ago. But she was the person who personaly held fund rasers and raised the money to put sewer hookups in the inner loop. The state did not do that, she and her fund raising skills made that happen. The stories help make the places sometimes...

A funny thing happened on the way to...

So...Skye and I spent a little time in The Blanco main square at Market days honing our newly found bartering skills (we watch American Pickers). In particular we were focusing on "bundling" which we have learned is the art of buying more than one item to reduce the cost on the overall package.

Here are a couple items we bundled. Rustic art, we intended to hang on the gate coming into the house. It would seem, upon closer inspection, that perhaps we should have spent a little more time actually READING the sign before getting that great price on it...

Got a funny story to share? (or need a No Solic ting sign?)

Hey Skye...That Guy at the Park is "Butch" Mumma. Retired Army who full times there.....several months at a time. He raised his family coming to the Park anytime he was stationed in San Antonio or back with the Family there while he was assigned remote....I could see the sadness in his eyes as he told me of the happy times. He was also the past Commander of the VFW around there somewhere.

He was definitely hurting. But pretty proud of all the efforts to save the park. Apparantly there have been many attempts to close it. It is a small park, but immaculately maintained and just a beautiful place to be.

Oh...One more pic. And it could easily have been the winner, IMHO... Honorable mention for Flamingo decorating contest.

To our soup'erb hosts, thanks again for yet another 110% Great Success Not Really a Rally Rally. Reading here, it's obvious everyone had lots of fun & once again didn't want to go home, yet. So, thanks again to Deb, Mary & Lora, plus Lora, Deb & Mary, and not to forget Mary, Lora & Deb!!! Ya'll Absolutely Rock.

To the trophy winners - and you really should remember who you are - If the Trophy Winners will send me (via PM) their names, 1st, 2nd, 3rd place ~ whatever . . . AND MAILING ADDRESSES ~ I will have little recognition name plates engraved & mail them back to you, for you to attach to your trophy, and thus be Forever Immortalized as a Blanco State Park Airstream Rally winner.

See you all next year.

She's always leaving something, since she brings no less than 4 bags of "stuff" everywhere, including the grocery store
