THE MOODY MAVEN

A Beach Boy Bingo Chat in Texas

Ever have a conversation that never has a chance to spin out of control because it was never under control?

My husband and I were on vacation for the past almost two weeks with another couple traveling around Texas. This was my first time visiting the Gulf of Mexico so everything was new to me. We moved around a little bit, seeing different parts of Texas — and yes, it’s a big place.

While I had promised I wouldn’t be posting during vacation, I watched for ideas to write about later. I always watch for ideas, because when everything is new there are just more of ideas about.

One thing I like to talk about is men doing silly things because, well, men. Men being men is never really a bad thing, but men being weirdos is always a source of inspiration.

One afternoon early into the trip, while the guys went off to do some guy stuff, Jenny and I went to the beach. We both had a few new bikinis and worked on our tan lines pretty much every chance we got.

The beaches in Corpus Christi are just beautiful. We found a place big enough for our umbrella and towels near the surf before helping each other lotion up the hard-to-reach spots and settling in for some Texas sun.
