We reached Moses’ Shop (Texas Autosports FM) just in time for lunch. It was only a short two-hour, easy drive from Wichita Falls RV Park. After a tour of the facility, we all (Moses, Sitara, Paul and I) went to lunch. Moses took us to Paradise Bistro & Coffee Company.

This eatery is right across the street from the Hood County Courthouse. I had the best Cobb Salad – perfectly seasoned and portioned. Paul really enjoyed his “Veggie” which combined Lettuce, Cucumbers, Avocado, Tomato, Red Onion, Roasted Bell Peppers, Chipotle Mayonnaise, on Wheat Berry Toast. We loved this place.

After lunch, we parted company so Paul and I could set up our camp. Of course, in the triple digit weather, the RV was unbearably hot. It took the AC a while to make it livable.

We met up with Moses and Sitara again for dinner. This time Moses introduced us to Papa Murphy's Take 'N' Bake Pizza. This outlet offers build-your-own takeaway pizzas, to be cooked at home. The pizza was very convenient and very tasty.

After dinner, we braved the heat to take a short walk to Moses’ boat slip. He and Paul are working on a modification to make it possible for Moses’ to work on his boat.

Before we knew it, it was after 8:00 p.m. The motorhome had cooled down enough for a comfortable sleep.
