Just a few Photos from our Trip

Chris is doing much better today. She has been up in a chair and has been walking in the hall. She is still in a lot of pain and pretty nauseous but her color is much better. Her heart rate was really low and they were kind of concerned earlier today, but it is better tonight.

I decided to add some photos from our trip Sunday from home to Amarillo. Nothing great, but here they are...

We passed this truck hauling a bunch of classic cars..they were pretty neat to see.

Here is the Wind Farm in Weatherford, OK. There were hundreds of these. Pretty awesome.

Also, in Groom, Tx we passed this cross. It is the 2nd largest cross in the Northern Hemisphere. You can tell it is large by looking at the scale of the house in the background and the business next to it.

This is a photo of a painted Quarter Horses that are all over Amarillo. This one is at Fort Amarillo RV Resort. The resort is pretty nice but the sites are pretty close and not much shade. The facilities are nice though. Also, Lizzie Mae's Gift Shop is worth the stop. You will spend more there than you do on your

This photo is of the Clubhouse at Oasis RV Resort in Amarillo. The clubhouse has 2--50" plasma TV's and a 100" theater screen for movies.

Also has Shuffleboard, Concessions, and a Book Exchange Library.

It is pretty new so there are very few trees but all sites are concrete and guaranteed to be level. They are also all laid out so that if you put your awing out in the afternoon you will have shade. Prices weren't too bad either. 32.00 a night but if you stay 2 - 6 nights it is 25.00. Monthly rate is $475 but that includes all utilities and wi-fi, cable, and free laundry facilities. They sell propane on site. Very nice place.

Here is a photo of The Cadillac Ranch just west of Amarillo on I-40. Can't see them really very good but there are 10 Cadillacs buried in the ground. People stop and take photos all the time. The man that did this was a little eccentric

Well, that's all I have for today. I want to get some photos of some of the road signs here in Amarillo. A man made all these signs and they are pretty weird. Here is a couple of links for those. There are many more than these but haven't found them yet.

Hope you get some enjoyment from all these photos..maybe it will make you chuckle a bit.

Thanks again for all the thoughts and prayers for Chris...
