cabin at the lake

Lake Texoma in all its wonder

Make you wonder why you don't get out of town more often!

It's only a hour away from DFW's wandering

But seemingly light years away from all the city stuff

UP shot of trees in a little pseudo forest

Too hot for a fire - but this would be nice on a rainy day!
Spring is already phasing out here in North Texas,
And it was in the 80's already!

Tea on the patio in the morning.
Between bugspray and sunscreen etc,
It still is nice to just be outside!

The cabin had everything - except mugs.
So we drove across the border to OK -
It was great to be back in Texas!

Fish Tacos
I need to learn this recipe

Burger with no bun 
Add Bacon, Pepper Jack Cheese and Avocado
I think food is all about the presentation!

The lake levels are really down

A restaurant on the lake was all the rage!

As we were driving, I cried out - LOOK - a cow!

And it was indeed a baby cow -
At a petting zoo at the lake

Dinner Time - they didn't care much about us -

Sherri didn't want to go "camping" 
But I told her it was "glamping" and not to worry -

The a/c was cold, there was indoor plumbing,
And a kitchenette - 

All the comforts of home

I think I made a believer out of her!


The ubiquitous "Dead Tree"

I got a little plaque for my walking stick -
But you have to (it would be nice if you did) actually hike there-
So we took a mile long hike around a little pond!

The Hagerman Federal Wildlife Preserve (link)

Kinda like a marsh - beautiful!

Haahaa what you see on the backroad on any Texas side street!
Great day!


Ah - the Bonham VA

I can't wait to die and go there sometimes - yes - 
It's THAT good

MuddBones in Bonham

Not real Opossum -
The guy's (late) wife called it that....
Ground Beef with Bacon and Cheese inside
(The Bacon and the Cheese "played possum" with the Beef)
Last time I did that, I set the grill on fire! 

RattleSnake Eggs -
Ground Beef with Jalepeno Peppers etc

The guy apologized that he "ruined" hamburgers for me -
Now, after eating at MuddBones, 
I would never have a good burger anywhere else again!
