Trip Diary: Iberostar Grand Rose Hall, The Resort
This is a photo of one of the pieces of artwork that caught my eye at the Iberostar Grand Rose Hall from last week. Most of the pictures that our group took seemed to feature the beach, the pools and all of the plant life. But the resort was incredibly well kept and has a LOT of tiles that got polished every morning...

Flakes and Guests Party at Flamingo Beach
I don't know if the beach at our resort was actually called "Flamingo Beach" or not. But that's what the weather app on my phone said. And that sounds "vacationy", so that's what I'm going with. Each year we have a private beach party exclusively for our group...

Tonight is your first opportunity to get qualified for the Flakes trip. Stop at the Stadium Club in the Heights and get your invitation to the final party in November. We would love for you to join us and 126 others in January - if Jamaica sounds good to you in the winter...

We got this picture sent to us this morning from a lady who's with our group, but got to the resort a few days ahead of us. All the rubbing it in aside, I am thankful for the chance to go on these trips each year. Every year when we arrive, I walk down to the beach and stand there and listen to the sound the waves make...

As we get ready for our big trip, I just thought of something that is slowly fading into the abyss. Postcards. No one sends them anymore.  Now its instant pictures, texts and videos. Places still sell them, but most people don't bother with them anymore...

It's time for me to recharge my batteries. I really do look forward to the Flakes trip.  Most of you don't know what my days are like and I use most of my vacations to get work done on the ranch. It's so nice to relax for a week, no schedules, no places to be etc...

"How was your time off?" That's the big question I got near the end of 2017 into the new year. Of course it was nice to sleep in and spend some time with family. This picture is from Saturday near Grey Cliff on the way to Big Timber. My vacation also included 3 funerals, catching a cold, and a lot of driving on bad roads...

I know people plan vacations months in advance. But if I had plans to be in Florida next week, I wouldn't go.  After Irma hits it will take some time for Floridians to regroup just like Texas.  I wouldn't want to get in the way of those people trying to recover so cancel and reschedule...

We will be taking off next week. You know the deal, use it or lose it.  When we get back after Labor Day we start drawing for 30 guns in 30 days.  That same week we have our Flakes kick-off party for the Flakes trip. Fall is fast approaching, so we will see you then...
