Play Day In Texas

I know you have heard the old adage All work and no play.....yada yada yada....

Well, it's true, and here in Texas we take both ... Work and Play...seriously!

Yep...Sister and I worked a day and played a day.

It's a heck of way to Make A Livin, but somebodys gotta do it....another old adage....works for me or I should say works and plays for me.

Here's another one....When in New Braunfels, Texas to work...Go To Gruene To Play! 

Gruene Hall, a bar and dance hall, was built in the 1880’s and soon became the social center for the community. It still stands at the end of Hunter Road and the intersection of Gruene Road. It is oldest dance hall in Texas and many country-singing stars and legends have performed there over the years. Willie Nelson, George Strait, Jerry Jeff Walker, Lyle Lovett are some of the well-known singers. A complete list of the singers is displayed inside the hall. 

Cheers Ya'll!!

  1. Looks like twins sitting there!. That looks like a really cool place, the garden next to it is just beautiful, so many different kinds of plants. It's such a blessing to have a sister isn't it. Have a great time.

    Woo Hoo! You two look so cute.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  3. You and your sister are so sweet! I love the post! George Strait...ahh...birthday boy! Check Chatty Crones post. She always posts a little bio daily! I love it over there!h

    I got your postcards! Years ago a friend of mine was visiting (now living) in Texas. She got me a magnet that says "Don't Mess With Texas!". I love it and the card to match! Hugs to you from me! Anne

  4. I CANNOT wait to Whoop-it-Up in TX this fall. New Braunfels is half a state away from where my lil sis lives and we only have a couple weeks to play together. We will be doing some early retirement down south so I would LOVE to see your dance hall. We have an old hall called Gruenerwald, so this really caught my eye and heart. Love the garden.
    Have many more memories with your sis. You sure look alike. WOW

  5. Looks like fun, Sue! Have another cold one for me!... Love that cactus outside.. I've never seen one like that, or that big, before! If any visitors have a few too many, I guess they had better be real careful stumbling out of there, (0; if it's as prickly as other cacti! ~tina

  6. Looks like fun and a good cold beer to boot! You and your Sis sure look alike!

  7. Sounds like you had a good 'play' day! Enjoy!! (I've been working on my stripy sock. Can't wait for you to see it)

  8. Hey sweet pea, just checking to see what you're up to and whoa I can see you two chicks are up to nuttin but fun!

  9. You two are the cutest little Texas gals ever!
    And I think you can party like nobody's business.
    Sure wish this southern gal was there to join ya!


  10. Those are some fancy boots in your header, love them! Sisters should have special days together, good for you!

  11. Hi Sue, you know how much my sisters mean to me. I have one brother that is a darlin man if there ever was one. One day I will post about him. He is smack in the middle of the sisters.

    You both are as pretty as can be and I sure could use a swig of some good cold beer. I love the work and play idea in Texas. I would love to play in that place. I love country music too. You go girls.

    My sister and I had a fabulous time on our antique shopping trip. She bought lots and I bought a bit. The weather was fine except on our drive home. It is good to be home.

    Your new header is awesome. Love the boots.

    Work hard and have fun is my new motto. HA!
    Hugs, Jeanne

  12. Thanks for the nice words on my gluebook pictures, it's fun to do. I love your blog and your choice of music, so much fun to visit your blog. I've only been to Texas once and loved it there. Hopefully we can visit again someday. Have a great day. Many smiles, Carol Mae

  13. You two sure look like sisters! What a neat dance hall and what history must be within its walls!
