FUN IN BANDERA...is what we had!
I wish we all could have had much more time together. Ricki Eichler and Judi Morgan really should be commended! What a wonderful job they did for the Active Rain crowd! It took a great deal of work and planning to pull this off Ladies! Thank you! I just love you ladies...above and beyond AR!
I agreed with my husband when he said, "THAT Ricki has such an infectious smile...I sure do like her and Don!"
And Judi, you are so perky and real! Scott and I decided that you could cook for us any time! It was good to meet Ceil and Carl Winters too and Ceil I ate all the white chocolate covered strawberries! Yum.
Marchel Peterson is just as lovely as her Localism Posts! We are getting over the excuses soon and we'll be meeting for lunch. Liz Carter? Where do you get all that energy? You are like a firecracker on the 4th of July! I so enjoyed talking AR with you! Marchel and Liz are moderators for the Texas Real Estate Group! Join today.
BTW, Tom Plant and I are going to write up a contract on the "big" house for later AR parties! More on that later.
These gentlemen are full of heart, fun, and family...the type of people you want to be around.
Tom (california/texas-trans) Plant!
Now, this is what Tom Plant looked like just about the entire time we were there. I understand Tom is considered the Active Rain Ambassador as he is very mobile and attends many functions.
I adore Tom. We had a great time together! His camera made me drool. He is a "semi-professional" photographer with "professional" written all over him!
To your left of the picture you will see Jason and his wife Pam visiting with Jem Woods! Jem and I didn't get to visit but a few minutes and he and wife and kids were off and gone! Next time Jim!
We all nibbled throughout the day. Ricki, Judi and Don had a full spread of veggies, chips, dips, salsa, tea, sodas and more desserts than I've ever seen in one place.
The recreational center we claimed was just beautiful. Large with all natural woods, fireplace, lots of windows and tables and chairs.
The entire Ponderosa RV park can be yours for a mere pittance of 1.2 million. Any takers?
Just let me know...you'll need representation against that Ricki Eichler Agent!
Jason had just found Tom Plant on the floor!
Jason, you really take things in stride...he might have given me a heart attack!
It was a great surprise held close to the vest of Judi Morgan!
You see Don Eichler, Ricki's husband in the middle there.
This is the shot of the house we want to buy for Active Rain get-togethers!
It's Ricki's listing and I fell in love.
It sits on one acre on a bluff next to an emerald green stream.
Now, here's my plan.....
If all 80,000 of us members donated $10.00 (mailed directly to me) we could all hold undivided interest in the house and we would have a place to party!!
Whaddaya think? Send money anyway.
Where's Tom Plant?
Is he still on the floor?
Oh, I see him!
He's in front of the Oak Tree that sits in front our house!
Wow, nice tree, Tom.
Jeff, the owner of our house, Michele and Alan Kirkpatrick.
Downtown Bandera...Saturday afternoon!
Close "butt" no cigar.
that's what I was talking about!
It was good to meet Trey Thurmond and his wife, Kris!
They came all the way from College Station.
Alan, Jem, Edward, Jason..
Picture of people taking pictures of people taking pictures of people taking pictures...
you get the picture.
More and more...
Judi taking my picture taking her picture...
blah, blah, blah...
We took a lot of pictures.
Kris Thurmond behind her.
The wedding party.
Invitations will go out soon for Tex and Mollie's wedding.
The baked goods sale was successful and we raised a few dollars for David Wilder's family and had a great time.
Ricki, Trey and Carl Winters.
Gail Tassey is one of my blogging buddies for sure! Gail, we barely got to say two words to each other!
You ran off sooooo early.
More time next time?
STOP THAT DON!
As our Active Rain get together drew to a close it was sad to see everyone leave! I can tell you though, I will be there next time too! Ricki, Judi, next time at Lake Livingston, huh?
LOVE TO ALL! LATER IN THE RAIN~DEB
