Light & Lovely Luncheon
Senior Cub Center
When I was young, we were a large family on a grad student income. Rocky Mountain National Park was an hour away, so we enjoyed tent-camping in the mountains amidst some of the best scenery in the country. When I came to Texas, I discovered camping meant fire ants, mosquitoes, and humidity, so it never had much appeal. When I attended a function at the Burleson Jellystone, however, I discovered a glamping sub-culture that I had no idea existed.
Life in “small town USA” is the best life. City dwellers don’t understand us. Why would anyone enjoy small town life with the lack of shopping, restaurants, and entertainment? It is all about the people. We can always drive a few miles for entertainment, big sports, and the big stores. What we can do is enjoy riding bikes in the evening with the family without the fear of possible danger in our neighborhoods. That is priceless!
