Touring Texas: Jimmie Ray's Appaloosas

Today in South Carolina we are soaked with lots of rain and flooding from the weather and Hurricane Joaquin was lurking in the sea.  We are having extreme levels and closings because of the flooding, but I'm thankful that it didn't hit land. 

Looking back through the Texas pictures I found these and wanted to share some sunshine and horses with you today!  Take a look at Jimmie Ray's beautiful Appaloosas!

Touring Texas: Jimmie Ray & Susie's Farm Part One

Jimmie Ray and Susie
I call them my other brother/sister from another mother/father!

I'd like you to meet the people who made it possible for me to meet Mr. Wheeler, my dad's WWII war buddy.  Without them this wouldn't have been possible.  Susie I'm so glad you didn't give up the search and you've made us very happy! These are two of the most genuinely nice people you'd ever want to meet!
I got so carried away taking pictures and now find it hard to pick out the most favorite.  I know I have to do that so here goes!

Touring Texas: Let's Go to Buffalo Gap

The Wheeler's have given Chuck and me such a great time in Texas.  Today was a big touring day.  We went to Frontier Texas ate a little lunch and now we're heading out to Buffalo Gap.  Mr. Wheeler's son, Randall lives there so we will visit him while there.

You may remember I let my camera battery die and at a time when pictures of this day would have been some of the best...yes, I was sad.  Today I share in the form of short fun and informative videos.

Meeting The Wheelers

I just love this fence and the signs.  I love Texas!  It is true everything is bigger in Texas.  You can drive for miles and miles and miles and not see a thing.  Beautiful scenery, hills, trees, large farm entrances complete with signs etc.  You have to look really hard to see the homes and if you look up sometimes you will see a huge home or two.  I kept hearing the theme from "Dallas" in my head the entire time.  (so I added it to the if you are in the mood!)  Yards are farms and cover acre after acre.  Huge properties.

You are gonna laugh but I kept seeing men in jeans, boots and cowboy hats and I thought my goodness everybody acts like cowboys...then it hit me.  "Dolly, you crazy thing you are in Texas.  This is cowboy rancher country"!

I thought it was time to share a few of the pictures I took while visiting my daddy's friend and war buddy.

Share with your friends!
