Yesterday Chuck and Kathy picked us up at 2:00 for our trip to Bandera. They have some friends who are staying in a RV Park there called Lake Medina RV Resort. He wasn't quite sure where it was and he had told them we would be there around 3:00. The campground was quite a ways away and we ended up getting there at 3:30. We really loved the campground and are thinking that maybe we'll be spending a month there next year. The road getting there is pretty iffy though. Lots of steep grades and twisting roads. Oh well, lots of other people have made it in. The lake is really low though due to the severe drought Texas is having right now.
We were all planning on going to the 11th Street Cowboy Bar for dinner. On Wednesday nights between 6:00 and 10:00 they have charcoal grills that you cook whatever meat you bring with you. For $4.00 you can purchase your sides. The sides included salad, mashed potatoes, beans and bread. The only bad thing is that they don't tell you to bring your own steak knives. The flatwear was plastic! Luckily our steaks were pretty well marinated and easy to cut. There was also a Country & Western band playing but it wasn't too loud. Some people were even out dancing. I'm not into C&W at all but it was fun being around all the cowboy people. Everybody calls you "ma'am" and they tip their hat.
Another interesting thing about this bar is the bras that are attached to the walls and ceiling. Yes, I did say BRAS! Big ones, little ones, medium sized ones. LOTS of bras! I really don't know what the significance of it is. Must just be a "guy thing".
The guys are discussing the correct way to cook a steak

Today we're heading to Boerne with Chuck & Kathy again to visit Bob & Molly for the Thanksgiving dinner. Should be another really fun day!
