Mary remains at home in California tending to medical issues. She had successful carotid artery surgery on Wednesday, returned home Thursday and is in the process of recuperation.

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the about 80 miles from San Angelo to Brady, Texas.

The motorhome is parked at VFW Post #3234. I’ll depart later this morning.

As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…

Brady refers to itself as “The Heart of Texas”, as it is the closest city to the geographical center of the state.

The museum traces the history of Country Music through displays containing stage costumes, musical instruments and personal effects of more than 100 performers. The museum is manned by volunteers such as Mary Wittmer who was on duty while I was there…

Here are some of the other photos that I rook…

Sorry about the reflections in the following photos as just about everything is behind glass and the reflections can not be avoided…

Here is the museum’s official website link…

Enjoying interesting museums is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

As always, I like to show the view from the dinette window…

Mary remains at home in California tending to medical issues.

The motorhome is still parked at the Waylon Jennings RV Park. I expect to leave here this coming Monday.

Yesterday I drove the Bronco the about one-half mile from the Waylon Jennings RV Park to Waymore’s Liquor Store. Waymore was Waylon Jennings’ nickname. You can read about this place by clicking this link…

Waylon’s younger brother James was not there, but I met Darla, James’ daughter and Waylon’s niece who was minding the store. Waymore’s is located on the corner of Hall Avenue and Waylon Jennings Boulevard. Waymore’s was once a gas station that has been converted into a drive-thru liquor store. What was once a double open-ended work bay, you can now drive-thru and buy your booze without getting out of your car. How convenient is that?

In a way, I felt a tad sad looking at Waylon’s memorabilia among all the booze. But in a way it reflects on his sometimes self-abusive lifestyle and his humble beginnings to become one of the most famous people on the planet. Like the above sign says…Waylon Jennings…No Ordinary Dude.

Texas Station in North Las Vegas featured country singer George Jones who is soon to be 80 years old. We were surprised to learn they do not forbid you to take pictures. The theater seating has no risers so visibility isn’t the best.

Giant screens mounted on both sides of the theater project stills of Jones, his career, family life, as here with his fourth wife Nancy, and many other great performers he has come to be included among.

The Jones Boys band is very good with a notable drummer and young fiddler. Singer, Britany Allen, does a good job and compliments Jones voice.

Jones fans hooted and hollered for him when he came on stage. His voice is long past its peak but occasionally the old Jones mournful bass came through and you had to admire him for keeping at it when retirement would certainly be more comfortable.

His music spans 6 decades and hes done some great stuff  that will never be forgotten. They sell “I Saw No Show Jones” message T-shirts that poke fun at his rampant alcoholic days when he’d simply not show up for his scheduled appearances.  We were glad we went and will play his hits this week on the old CD’s we have and remember George Jones…
…he stopped loving her today….
