|Coach all set in place|
Spent the day Sunday getting things somewhat in place and tried to get organized. Met a number of the other workampers that we will be working with and got the dogs settled down in their new place. The park is really nice. Took a ride into Mineral Wells for some shopping and dinner. We found Mineral Wells to be interesting and really need to go back to do some looking around. There was this old abandoned building that we were not sure about but it was really intriguing, I am going to have to do some research and find out what it is about.
Monday we went into the office and got our "marching orders". I was teamed up with Pat Ratzlaff and Fred with Rick Ratzlaff; so off we went workamping for the first time!!! The jobs have ended up not being hard at all and in fact somewhat enjoyable. I was finished in a hour and half and Fred . . . well he kept his going as long as he could - he was having fun --- he said it felt good to be back to doing something as he has been off work for two years due to his hand injury.
Since we are off in the afternoons we started looking around for places to go and things to see. Tuesday we went to the National Vietnam War Museum Complex in Mineral Wells - wow is all I can say:
Wednesday afternoon we took a ride and went to Palo Pinto. The country side was wonderful and I got my second Courthouse picture. On the way back we found this wonderful BBQ place called Natty Flat Smokehouse a & Gift Shop. The gift shop next door to it the Guinness World Record for the largest rocking chair. The furniture inside was all made from wood in the area and was some of the best looking rustic furniture I have ever seen. It was really a cook place.
