RV Dreams rally #6

We finally arrived at Buck Horn in Texas for our 6th rally with the RV Dreams.  It was so exciting..  lots and lots of new folks to meet, along with our "old" fellow Dreamers that we have met along the way with former rallies. 
Going through the gates to the park, found us looking forward to the week ahead...

We were assigned to a great spot.. right on the "putting green".  This is about the same spot that we
occupied the last time we were here for a rally.  Feels kind of funny... being all surrounded by these
big and beautiful coaches and mobile homes.  Feel kind of like the "kid".  But, Thor held his head up high, and scooted right in there like he was Big Stuff.  They all welcomed us, which made us feel as we were just like them.  We felt right at home.  It is a wonderful park to stay in.  Nice level, paved lots, Internet provided, along with cable TV.  All services, and all together a beautiful place to stay.

The evening we arrived, before the rally began, Howard and Linda gather everyone, who have arrived, to join them in a "campfire circle".  Of course, no fire, but you get the drift.  Gives everyone a chance to meet and greet.  Linda constantly amazes us all how she goes around the circle, announcing each of us by name.  Some of who she has only met once, herself.  This time Howard showed us he can do as well as his wife in remembering each one.  We all look forward to this each rally, thinking maybe this time she will not be able to complete them all.  But she came through again this year!

Our circle kept growing as the evening went on.  This is the other side .

Bringing laughter and joy to our group was our good friends, Char and Denny.  This was their 5th rally with us.  We always have such a good time with this great couple.

Our first evening of the rally was a get together and meet dinner which was catered by the great folks at at Buck Horn.  Food, as always, was great.  Brisket and Chicken BBQ.  Linda got everyone in the mood for a great time with her "Our Gang"..  This is a tradition, which never fails to get everyone up on their feet. 

Our table enjoyed it all...  as usual...

Within an hour, we were meeting our friends from former rallies, and catching up on news since we saw them last.  The first were our friends.. Lauren and George.  Did not take long before Lauren and I had lost our voices!!!

We know it will be a great week, and needless to say, we are SO looking forward to it.  Will try to be sure and send along more pictures while here.  Thanks for dropping by to share it all with us
Till then..  take care, and as always..   Walk softly....

Pat, Jim and, of course, Thor...
