We arrived near Cleveland, later than we had planned but still in good time. We had booked a spot at The Preserve of Texas. It is an area of over 2,000 acres along a river. While the majority of the area is set out as permanent spots it had three campgrounds - each with about a dozen sites, and each with a pool. For a couple of nights, the campground we were in had only two of us - needless to say it was quiet, and certainly no traffic.

I had planned on going shopping on Black Friday. But Black Friday came and I decided that I really didn't want to fight the traffic or the crowds. Instead I went to Walmart and picked up a few things and that was my shopping trip.
While the weather has been nice, yesterday (and today) was warmer and more humid than it had been. Well, along come the lady bugs - everything was covered. We couldn't even sit outside. The worst was that a whole bunch found their way inside and I never thought they were so hard to get rid of - they seem to hide in all nooks and crannies. I think by tonight, we got them all - at least until another one shows up.

Until next week, you folks back home stay warm!
