Our New Home!!



It was an interesting and fun weekend, so why not share it with others?


The picture above was taken outside  our balcony...I'm not sure what this building is, but I know it is part of the lodge where we were staying...



Seems that someone did not want their picture taken...

The rooms were very comfortable and the colors were very inviting!!  The decor was rustic, while the flooring and pictures held a flair for the old Indian heritage.


Snow in the bar ditches...and here is a picture of Sam (getting ready to throw a snowball at me)   


The old Jail House!!............
I really could  not believe that BJ opened the
door and stepped into the place....seems that 
"Rattle Snakes" are big in this area!!

One reason, that you will never find me visiting
this area any other time other than the Winter 
months.


Is this not just beautiful??  But, to tell you the truth,
it makes me very sad...
This old home,  inch by inch is falling to pieces...
Seems that age and weather are doing quite a job on this old home place.....I have no idea who it belongs to, and I have no idea who holds the memories to the place, but
it is sad to see it fall to pieces...


Another gorgeous view that surrounds the resort....
BTW....this lake is about 28 feet below it's normal
level....



Check this fella out.....He was standing
in the park area along with about 10 of his
lady friends...

And Now, I have saved the Best for last....Seems that 
Sam found us a new home ....I assured him that I would
not be moving to Oklahoma.  You see, I am in love with the beautiful pine trees here in East Texas.....

Sam told me not to worry....this home could easily
be moved to East Texas....let me show you a picture and you can tell me what you think....



A wing-LESS airplane!  Sam has it all figured out...
After we get it back here, we can fix up the inside to be a state of the art  AIRPLANE HOME!

I do not know how he manages to come up with all the things he thinks about!!  I guess they just pop into that cute head of his....

Whenever  you look to the future, be bold!

Hope you enjoyed taking this trip with me....
Later this week......I'll display my trip treasures!

Later,
Shug ~

Great pictures, and sounds like a fun trip. It is sad to see an old gorgeous home like that fall apart. Too bad. Hugs, marty

That old house falling apart is a total beauty and what a shame they don't restore it, maybe it's a battle between families that inherited?! Thanks for sharing the great pics.

Sounds like you all had a great time in Oky-land. The lodge looks like a neat place.

BUT--you keep the airplane and I'll take that old home you pictured (the one with the pillars)... What a beauty!!!!

Hugs,
Betsy

Your pictures do NOT disappoint! Well, we are just dying to know about this airplane, Phil flies huge model planes, and he does not believe this could fly. What IS it, how is it used, can it fly???? Tell us what you know, we cannot believe our eyes!!

That trip sounds like fun Shug!

Thanks so much for stopping by the Back Porch. I am working cheerful colors back into the decor here and there in our home. Those colors are the real us.:-)

Such a shame about that beautiful old home. As for the airplane, no not for me.Though I do know someone that has made a beautiful home out of one.

Hummmm, no long and narrow home for me. But, hey, it looked interesting. Looked like a fun weekend and can't wait to see your treasures. Happy week!

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

I know that plane could make an interesting home, but I would way prefer that beautiful old house!! Oh, someone needs to take her in to love and restore to her glory. Makes me sad everytime!!

Okay, Shug, what's the name of this resort?? We are supposed to have a beautiful day today! Enjoy! blessings ~ tanna

It all looks fun and festive to me. (Well, except that I'm sad along with you for the house falling apart. I can't stand to see that. I have such a passion for old homes. )

Laughed about living in the wingless airplane.
