Don and Gails 2011 Travel - Update #5

Since our last update we have been several places through Texas. We spent five days in the Mc Gregor, Crawford area then down to Burnet, Lampasas for a week, and then to Lockhart.

We have looked at several places to relocate to and this was the closest to town.  We decided we weren’t ready for a remodeling job.

The Grove, TX. is about 15 miles south of Crawford, TX. and the Georg W. Bush ranch. But I don’t think we will be going over for BBQ real soon. This was a fun place to see and we even visited with a descendant of this town whose sister has recently purchased it.  The little shack (with the Sheriff sign but probably without the sign) was in the movie Lonesome Dove and a number of the other buildings, either inside ore out, have been in scenes of other movies from time to time. The Dube Store is a bank, post office and one other service as well. It is completely original complete with an outside staircase up the side of the building where the town Doc held his practice – just like in Gunsmoke!

This is probably the last update you will receive. We are now in Kansas and on our way home.
