Harlingen, Texas – Day 15

Mary is arriving here today in Harlingen, Texas after an absence of 199 days. After our May 27, 2012 accident she returned to her home in California for a family reunion and started having to deal with after-effects of the accident. It will be nice having my partner back on the road with me. If you missed the accident Blog entry, you can see it by clicking this link…

The motorhome is parked at Tropic Winds RV Resort and is scheduled to be here until January 10th.

Recently I published a Blog entry about the South Texas Music known as Conjunto. Remember, in Spanish, a “j” is pronounced like an “h” and so is pronounced as con-HOON-tow!

You can read about Conjunto by clicking this Wikipedia link…

Last Saturday night I turned on the TV in the motorhome to the local PBS Station which was featuring Conjunto music. Because video gobbles up many megabytes in a hurry, I recorded only this short video which you may view by clicking this link…

In Mexico this type of music is called Banda. It is also similar to the Cajun Music we experienced in Southern Louisiana in 2010. We are currently expecting to experience Mardi Gras this year in Lake Charles, Louisiana and remain in Louisiana until about the end of March. Until then we’ll be surrounded by this beautiful music. It’s a lousy job. but someone’s got to do it!!!!  🙂

You can view the South Texas Conjunto Association Music Website and see a number of videos by clicking this link…

Enjoying beautiful local music is another joy of the full-time RVing lifestyle!

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!

  1. Since you enjoy local music might we suggest The Crooked Road in Virginia for bluegrass and flat stepping. See our blog http://www.fulltimegypsies.wordpress.com for The Crooked Road post.
