Smith Briggs Ranch. I had to stop and take a few photos of them. So so so pretty to me.
Well then it was off to Gatesville where one of the largest Texas Prison is located. Thankfully that was not our destination. But instead to a nice lil bank here in Texas to take care of some business for my brother. 30 minutes and we were done and back on the road. Noshing on the donuts still...of course.
Through Ft. Hood (men in uniform....anything more needed to be said here?) and on to Temple Texas for the VA Hospital. Our Gentleman had an appointment there. He has a large growth on the side of his neck and we are concerned. So it was a day for reading of the CAT scan and doing a biopsy. We will know more later. Pray for him please! While he was in the doctor's office, Granny M and I took a much needed nap in the car. It was pleasant. Windows down, under the trees with a lil breeze blowing. A few hours later and off to home we started.
Just as we started back into Hamilton (yeah, home of the donuts) our car went, cough...sputter.....ding ding ding....warning lights.....stop! Oh No! Check oil light was on. So we did. And the oil was full! Seems our oil pump is messing up. Well we could not ride on home that way and not kill the car. It was 5 p.m. and the shops were closing down. So no repair job for us. Still 33 miles from home and no one to rescue us either. Dang it! Well we hired this big ol wrecker to haul us home. $140 dollars later...they unloaded us in our front yard.
Dear Hubby was waiting on us along with Princess Emma. Glad to see us safe from our trip. Now we are looking at how to get the car fixed on our limited budget. But oh, that is life. By the way, Princess Emma was there for the evening because Other Mom and the Poppi went to see College Girl in Summer and Smoke. Here is what the review had to say.
Tarleton Theatre gives smoking performance - Fine Arts: "One of the funniest characters in the play, though, was Alma's mother Mrs. Winemiller played by Denea Little, a nutty woman with what seemed to be an addiction to ice cream." This is better known to all of y'all as College Girl. She is having a blast in this play. I can't wait to go and see it Friday night.
