Radioman------- Nice write up on the travels so far and good to hear from you. The oil pumps in Texas are called pump jacks. And yes, you did hit a very hot time of year for this area. Childress just finished the day yesterday with the 38 time this year to reach 100+ degrees. Very hot and dry summer, as you could tell.

Really enjoying your trip reports!! Have fun and be safe.

Wonderful place your cousin has. That looks great. I remember back when I lived in Texas. The best part of the day had to be the morning as it got so hot later in the day.

Your southern bbq looks great too. Whats all in that? I may go down just for the food.

Ride safe, stay on schedule and keep writing.

Thanks - Frank

July 3rd and 4th

Spent a few days with my lovely Niece and her family. The kids were excited to see "Uncle Mark"!!

Of course As soon as I took off my Riding boots they wanted to be in them. One of those kid things. The bigger the better, and Uncle Mark has big feet!





Spent part of the 4th Lounging by the pool and in the water with the little ones.





They even had LadyBug beanie babies



Catching up on my ride report..... I have constant "help" will need to go back and reread to see if anything makes sense as the 2 and 4 year old were near me, on me, touching the computer or asking what or why?.... Kids are great!





Then the "can I take a picture? Catching Dad in Motion



Caught the family all together just once



The a special 4th of July Treat. Berry Pie and ice cream



Very tasty!!



Then the big Huntsville Fireworks Celebrating Independence Day in the USA Happy 4th of July







So the last night of my stay here..... Continuing to ride south toward Florida. The Space Shuttle Launch is still on track for July 8th!
