On to Wichita Falls

Current Location: Coyote Ranch Resort, Wichita Falls, Texas

On Sunday, we spent a fairly relaxing day. Malcolm woke up with a migraine and had allergy issues all day long. It was late afternoon before he ventured outside to relax. The Mayers left on Sunday morning. Sunday evening, we got together with the Dorseys and went to DQ for dessert after dinner.

Monday we spent running errands downtown in Eastland. Malcolm tried to get a haircut but was unsuccessful since the barber shop (as is typical) was closed on Mondays. A nearby salon did men’s cuts, but that stylist wasn’t going to be in until later, so Malcolm decided to forgo the haircut until we got to Wichita Falls.

We ate lunch in downtown Eastland at an Italian place. The food was pretty good and reasonably priced. After lunch, we wandered around the town square, then headed towards WalMart. We ran a quick errand in WalMart, then shopped at the western wear store out front. Malcolm found a few shirts and a hat he wanted. After that, we filled up the truck at the Walmart service station and headed back to the campground.

Monday afternoon, another Heartland couple – Dave and Amy Tardiff – arrived for a couple nights stay. We had another impromptu pitch-in dinner and enjoyed visiting with them until late in the evening. Their dog, Tucker, was also in attendance.

This morning we got up late and took our time getting ready to leave. Despite our laziness, we were still ready to go about 9:30 AM. We said our goodbyes to Erika Dorsey (Tony was already at work) and the Tardiffs. It was a fairly leisurely trip today up US 281 to Wichita Falls. We arrived around 1:00, set up and turned on the air conditioners.

We headed into town and stopped by Target, the mall (where Malcolm got a haircut, finally) and the post office. We headed back to the trailer and waited for David to come over for dinner from the base. He arrived about 5:30 and we ate dinner with him. We ran back over to the base and he put a majority of his stuff in the truck then rode back to the trailer with us to carry it in and to visit for a bit.
