Hemphill Bar-B-Q – Hemphill TX.

Over 150,000 hits, Whoo Hoo…

Hemphill BBQ - Good BQQ and even better Pies...

In the north eastern portion of Texas, know as the Piney Woods, is a small town call Hemphill TX. Not far from the Toledo Bend Reservoir and the border between Louisiana and the Great State of Texas. The town is also the home of the Space Shuttle Columbia memorial. Commemorating the deceased Columbia astronauts which happened in February, 2003. Items found around Hemphill were the remains of the shuttle and crew members and the Orbiter Experiment Support System recorder (OEX).

After visiting the memorial you need to take a short drive down TX-83 about 8 miles (turn at the A&P Grocery Store) and find Hemphill Bar-B-Q (corner of 83 and 3121). If it were not owned by the brother of one of by best buddies (Wayne W.) I probably would have simply past it by. But I stopped and had a very nice plate of Pork Sausage, Sliced Beef, and Boudin. Pretty good stuff… But before you leave don’t forget to pick-up a fresh Pie. Better than most I have tasted and around the holidays you might even order early.

EllenˇŻs Condition

It is Thursday and second round of chemo. She was pretty sleepy last weekend. We will watch her this weekend and see how it goes. Tumor numbers were down slightly to 38 which is in the high range of normal. Down slightly from the previous reading.

We just made reservation to go Camping at Potter’s Creek COE – Canyon Lake TX the weekend of May 2nd. She is looking forward to it.

Fire on Mt. Magazine, AR - Jan. 2014

In January 2014, while visiting our friends in Arkansas we always try our best to visit Mt. Magazine. Stated as the tallest point in Arkansas but has been disputed by Queen Wilhelmina State Park who also claims similar accolades. A number of years ago, they built a new Lodge on the top of Mt. Magazine overlooking the valley.

When the lodge was relatively unknown it was a very nice place to visit and reasonably priced. Now, it is still a beautiful view, the restaurant prices are still fair, but the room rates have increased significantly.

It is Thursday and first round chemo. We have gone through a full set since I last posted. She did great !!! Her tumor numbers have dropped to the High side of normal (a good thing). She has been “sleepyˇ± but not feeling “puny” (per se). We can only hope that this continues through this next set. I will stay close to home this weekend.

Two Races have past since the last post… Carl Edwards won the Food City 500 (Dillon finished 9th…wow) at Bristol Motor Speedway – TN. Kyle Busch won the Auto Club 400 in Fontana CA (Dillon a respectable 11th). I am sure this made Brody happy.

EllenˇŻs Condition

This past week and a half has been tough on Ellen. A week ago Friday she had the second chemo treatment. Tough weekend for her. By the time of her Tuesdays doctors appointment they determined that her white blood cells counts were very low. As well as she was dehydrated. She was not drinking liquids because she was not feeling well and tossing (Grandma v. called it “erping”) what she was drinking and eating. A serious problem which is being taken care of. I monitor her liquid intake better now.

I have learned how to administer injections of a medication which improves the white blood cell count for Ellen. Something that I do not like to do… I don’t like sticking my Sweetheart with a needle… But because it is required I will do it. I still do not like it.

Throughout the week she has been up and down. Working from home when we are not going to the doctors. She will continue to work at home for at least a few more days..

HEY AIG Life… Thanks for your support !!! Lov Ya Guys… Yes I DO !!!

Things appear to be improving… The DAYTONA 500 is today !!! Something for her to look forward to.

Lov Ya Sweetheart… Yes I do !

Not Daytona, but Texas Motor Speedway... best I could do...

Mark Martin Update

It’s the DAYTONA 500 today… NASCAR is back… but Mark is not. I pull for Kyle because of Brody… I am still not sure who to follow at this point. Dillon is a cool kid (rookie), still not sure. Still a void in my NASCAR “life”.

Ellen’s Condition

Last Thursday was chemo… Sister Nancy was in town for the week and I believe Ellen’s spirits were up for that.  She has done well so far this week.  It is now New Years Day and we will see where she is at.  All is well, no new numbers… She is doing fine… We need to go camping… To Arkansas in a couple of weekends. Expect Cold and Rain… but Meime will endure.

Lov Ya Sweetheart… Yes I do!

Ellen’s Condition

The reason for my reluctance to post was that Ellen’s numbers have gone up slightly this past session.  From 24.6 to 30.8, with 38 being the high range.  Chemo was a week and a half ago.  Very puny on last Monday and stayed home sick.  This weekend she was fair. I will again Love on her this weekend.

The deer were in the second section we stayed in (not in the first) at Potters Creek COE.  Last year we were there during deer season. They opened up the other section for hunting… My guess is that these guys learned to stay in “this section”.

Where’s Waldo ??? (Ellen)

We are back home, Meime is unpacked but I still need to clean today.  We both had a great time.  I spent most of it working on the laptop.  Everything from work to laughing at my new images of Chicago and Canyon Lake, TX.

I think Ellen enjoys getting away from the norm and not worrying about those things which need to be done… because you can’t do them from Canyon Lake, TX.  Since we are in a space of about 160 sq. ft.  for 7 days we discussed many things. From our family heirlooms to Dragnet.  It was harder to get in and out of bed, as well as going to the restrooms… but the view… to live for…

Arrival Day... Potters Creek COE - Canyon Lake, TX - Nov 2013

lol… the day we arrived… It was cold (for Texans). It got sunnier, but not much warmer.

Ellen’s Condition

Same as last post… It sounds like a broken record (a good broken record).  She is doing Great ! She helped me unpack a good bit, and gave her kitty the missed love for a week.

Lov Ya Sweetheart… Yes I do!

Where’s Waldo ??? (Ellen)

Here are a couple of images. As I looked at them I was focused on the main subject of the image.  It took a few moments… and then I said… Where’s Waldo ??? I laughed so hard.  Unfortunately I cannot take credit for either image… They just happened… I laughed sooo… hard.
