Freddy Powers Pickin Party is where we spent New Years Day. A New Years black-eyed pea and cabbage potluck was held at the community center at the La Hacienda RV resort where we are staying. The party was fantastic! We had a wonderful afternoon and evening with new friends. We were fortunate to share our table with our son and his family and with The Singing Cowboy, Freddie Fuller. His website is The Singing Cowboy.net and he is a wonderful performer. We enjoyed his music and loved being able to socialize with him and his friend Debbie.

Tonya Benson is with Songwriters Across Texas, an organization that supports and showcases musical talent in Texas. She sat with us for awhile and shared her fun and interesting work with musicians in Texas. It was a fun time with good food, good music and meeting some excellent musicians who perform all around the country.
More details will follow later as we write about some of our favorite performers.
We are currently in Texas visiting family in the Austin area. Tonight, New Year’s Eve, we all are in San Antonio. We have had a great time, even though the temperatures are in the 30’s with wind chills (yes, the pesky wind chills we thought we were leaving behind in the north) in the low 20’s.
Glad we brought some cold weather clothing!
Shopping and eateries along the River Walk
We have had a fun day, even though it was a very chilly day! We were able to take the boat ride on the San Antonio River. It was fun shopping at the many places along the River Walk, and of course we visited the Alamo, site of the famous battle that ultimately led to Texas gaining its freedom from Mexico.
