I know it very, very well, thank you. It's close to my favorite. My typical trip back home is up through Llano, Coopers for a ton of expensive meat, up to Hico for pie and onion rings and tea, then the lousy part of the drive back to Dallas where I am living at present.

My first day at Coopers was traveling south to Fredericksburg to meet my wife who was in a wedding of a friend she has down there. I'd never been. It was cold and raining. I got there first and the guys there handed me a Lone Star longneck to sip on while I waited. She got there and we feasted heartily on the meat and those awesome pintos. Of course a couple more long necks as well. Hog heaven. It was my first trip to the Hill County. I was smitten with the entire area and have been back many times. I go to the vintage bike fest in Luchenbach every October. it truly is where the deer and antelope play. That and winery's out the wazoo!

I know it very, very well, thank you. It's close ... (show quote)

Do you get your pie at the Koffee Kup Kafé there in the heart of Hico Hico is another of several towns that lay claim to Billy The Kid having lived there. There is also a great chocolate shop almost across the street from that café...which has a storied history.

BTW, I live about 45 minutes east of Hico down Hwy 6 on the other side of Meridian, then off Tx Hwy 22.

To be honest, my wife has me a room somewhere in Marble Falls Friday night and then they join me for the thing in Llano Saturday. At this time I have no idea where it is. LOL! I'm sure she will inform me, else I'll be stay with a friend in Whitney. I hope you have a spare couch!!

We have two extra bedrooms, plus our RV bus in the backyard w/hook-ups. However, I'm guessing Marble Falls is about 140 miles away...Llano, a little further. Both are beautiful small towns, and both also sit on rivers. They are in the middle of Texas Hill Country.

We live on the northern edge of the same hill country. But, we live on Lake Whitney, not in Whitney, which is about 10-12 miles away, not even same county. Y'all come on down

I will be in the neighborhood for the Llano arts festival, I think its called, coming soon. My Honey and grand daughter will be in Kerrville the days prior to that. I love the area and will be hopping around Marble Falls the Friday prior to the festival. It actually starts Friday I think.

I wish it was a bit later for some great wild flower actions!!

I don't know how you're traveling, but Kerrville has a state park and the surrounding area has camping. The state park sits right on the Guadalupe River running through downtown Kerrville.

I was kidding. My response was just a thumbs up - no elaboration.

Thank you for clarifying with this explanation. I should'a figured it out , but responded before I gave enough thought to your brevity.

Also, I thank you for your 'thumbs up.'

I apologize for my wordy response.

You've lost me there, Rose. To what "wordy response" are you referring

You're already on my good side for favoring USMC Dress Blues.

I dated a girl from Kerrville, Texas who would say Yippy skippy in anticipation of something fun.

Fiddle dee dee for something not so pleasant!

I have a sister who lived in Kerrville for years. It is a beautiful town, and what I like best about it is their fabulous Cowboy Museum. It was chock-full of both Remington & Russell paintings and sculptures. I always made a point of stopping there when heading west on U.S./I-10. It has been a while, though.

Soo--- what's wrong with the Coast Guard?
they ain't Marines?
is that it?

Not being near your age, I hadn't realized Popeye started out in The Coast Guard, before changing over to the Navy upon the advent of WWII, that's all. Normally, I have great respect for Coasties & Squids.

'Cepting for those who owe me huge sums of poker debt.

Translated blankety, blankety, blankety!!

Okay, but according to The Urban Dictionary...

Yippy Skippy: a sarcastic answer to anything that you have to do or something that doesn't sound fun. Also can be used when you just don't give a damn about something and want to use sarcasm.

Your usage of it doesn't seem to chime with that definition...unless you can 'splain it.

Doc, without your glasses, I guess you couldn't determine that my 'quiche' response was to Smedley.
