July 18 – Day 68 – Tuesday

Psalm 77:13
Thy way, O God, is in the sanctuary:
who is so great a God as our God?

I must go to the sanctuary now to get comfort, as I went before to get instruction. What a mercy to have the privilege of drawing near to God in his ordinances! How many doubts have been solved, fears dissipated, hearts comforted, darknesses dispelled, and snares broken, while waiting on God in the means of grace! Clarke’s Commentary

Getting ready to leave Oklahoma


Acres of cotton fields.


Hello Texas


Grey County rest stop is beautiful

Some of you many have seen the video from the rear of the the building.
A friend said ‘where are the trees?”
Yes, I, too, prefer trees!


A restroom is a storm shelter


I’ve never taken a picture of a rest room before
but then I’ve never seen one like this.
Isn’t the tile work beautiful.

Glimpses of Texas

I’m using the new-to-me computer.
I don’t have all my pictures transferred, Opps!
I’ll do the best I can.

We entered New mexico


Miles and miles of wind machines in rows.

Mountain Road RV Park Campground
on the minus side – No grass, few trees and no internet
on the plus side – cooler, less humic and quiet

We went to Mc Donald’s to post July 15th, 16th. and 17th
I almost had a melt down!
(I’m getting really tired and it must be time to get home.)
I had to use the new-to-me computer, Windows 10.
So I had to learn ‘NEW STUFF’ never an easy thing for me.
no Microsoft office programs, no word,
and no picture manager – I use this to crop and fix my pictures

the Farmer copied the blog file into Windows 10 Wordpad,
and my pictures into a folder on my desktop, so I could find them.
Word pad is different, boo.
I had to find a different app to crop and fix my pictures.
I also could seem to communicate what my problems were,
soooooo very frustrating.

Thankfully the internet connection was very strong
and the pictures uploaded quickly.
I did get it done, just before tears.

When we got back to the Tango,
I didn’t even turn on my computer,
my phone games and I went to bed.

My View (I didn’t even want to look)

The Morning and the Evening of the sixty-eighth day.

July 15 – Day 65 – Saturday

Psalm 74:12-13,15-17
For God is my King of old,
working salvation in the midst of the earth.
Thou didst divide the sea by thy strength:
thou brakest the heads of the dragons in the waters.
Thou didst cleave the fountain and the flood:
thou driedst up mighty rivers.
The day is thine, the night also is thine:
thou hast prepared the light and the sun.
Thou hast set all the borders of the earth:
thou hast made summer and winter.

Psalm 75:1
Unto thee, O God, do we give thanks,
unto thee do we give thanks:
for that thy name is near thy wondrous works declare.

**********************************************************
the Farmer got up at his normal time,
I got up earlier than normal because
we have many miles to go until we sleep.

About 25 minutes after we go on the road

we met Texas


yard art


golden corn as far as the eye can see


Texas street signs,
no names just numbers, large numbers

Mineola, Texas is one neat town!

found in the free parking lot for the town.

First, it is the home of

Stitchin’ Heaven, a quilt shop,
where I have purchased many dollars worth of fabric and quilt kits,
was one of the first stops I put on our journey.
I don’t think I’ve finished a quilt from them,
but I am still alive, so there is hope.
I got to walk through the doors
and breathe deeply of that one-of-a-kind odor, new fabric.
I wandered all around the shop a couple times,
(it’s a good thing this shop is not located
within 50 miles of Sacramento)
picking up odds and ends of quilty stuff and
next Thanksgivings jigsaw puzzle.
When we are finished with the puzzle
it goes to my mother.

This magnet -boot on white- will go on my fridge –
I know you can’t believe it.

Secondly, it has more antique stores in the 2 X 3 block area
than in any town we have visited.
What a place for a thimble hunt.

First shop we entered = Nestfeathers, drool,
a darling shop, the owner is a quilter!

Cute quilty stuff, no thimble.

Second shop – Between Friends
found homemade cookies
must keep up my strength for hunting,
found a special gift for ‘T’
No thimble, but received a map of the town
with circled possibilities.


Third shop – Karen’s Korner

Aunt Jemima was waiting to go to California!
I’m getting hungry for pancakes.
Kyle and Autumn get ready for brunch!

We did all this in less than two hours!

On to Oklahoma!
Some pruning needs to be done on their sign,
too bad they don’t have a Farmer.

Even the smallest town across the states
have one or more pizza parlors and

a subway either free standing or in a gas station.

As we neared Oklahoma City
we could see the clouds darkening
and rain in the distance.
We drove right through this afternoon storm.
Temperature before the storm in the 90’s,
after in the 70’s with a nice breeze.
This doesn’t happen often,
usually it just gets muckier after a storm.

Arrived at Roadrunner RV Park
just before the office closed.

Again my view isn’t exciting,
but sitting quietly knitting in a cool breeze was a treat.

The Morning and Evening of the sixty-fifth day.
