Last Friday we were invited to our granddaughter Tiffany's house for dinner. She lives about 50 miles from where we are working. Our trusty GPS took us directly to her door.
Tiffany, Jake and great-grandson Alec.
Tiffany is Len's son Lennie's oldest daughter. I did not know Lennie when he was this young but from pictures I've seen, little Alec has a strong resemblance to his grandfather.
When we leave here on Friday, we will be parked for a week at a RV park that is only about 15 miles from Tiffany and family. Hoping to have many visits.
Last Saturday we woke to heavy fog and a light drizzle. The weather cleared late morning so another NOMADS couple, Kitty and John Hahn and Leonard and I when to:

Now, why the title "Maybe Allergies?" For the last several years I have long spells (weeks or months even) when I have a persistent cough. I would blame it on having a cold that leaves me with a cough. I am now suspecting the culprit is seasonal allergies. I cough til my chest aches and my ribs are sore. I cough through the night and through the day.
Thinking back it is usually this time of the year that I have this cough. This year seems to be the worse. Maybe, just maybe mowing that 11 acres of Texas grass and weeds, some of which had not been mowed for three years, put a hurting on me. Something to ponder.
