The Traveling Supremes gathered in Caldwell, Texas at Brazos Valley RV park on December 28, 2021, for some New Year’s fun together. Hosts were James and Gail Smith and James and Barbara Smith. Attending: Roger and Jo Marr, Jim and Tina Hoover, Steve and Lisa Merriman, Duane and Patty Stowe, Pete Minnix, Don Spencer, Polk and Linda Brian, Burnel and Marie Moreau, Jerry and Hessie Smith, Paul and Tandy Krugler, and Billy and Myrna Braly.
We took a tour in Brenham, Texas of the old Theater and Visitor Center and the underground cistern system that provided fire protection in the old days for the downtown buildings. Of course, we made a stop at the Blue Bell Creamery for a big scoop and tour!
Next we went to the spot where “Texas became Texas”—Washington-on-the-Brazos, the first capital after Texas declared independence from Mexico. The awesome Independence Hall, Star of the Republic Museum, and Barrington Plantation took most of the day to tour but were well worth it!
College Station was our next destination where we toured the Bonfire Memorial where 12 students lost their lives in 1999 when the bonfire fell. Our Aggie, Paul Krugler, narrated for us. We just got a glimpse of Texas A&M’s campus and Kyle Field as we traveled to the George H.W. Bush Library and burial grounds.
Breakfast is always an event and we feasted on Boilin’ Bag Omelettes furnished by the hosts in the morning on NY Eve. We partied hard on a seafood and steak dinner before games and gift exchange back at the RV Park clubhouse until midnight in NYC. So many laughs and memories!
After a great New Years’s day feast with all the trimmings, we went on our way again full of love and hope for 2022. Health and happiness to you all!
