We made it to Fort Clark Springs in Brackettville, Texas. It’s a former army barracks and is nicer than the internet’s whiners make it sound. But there is no wireless connection and I can only get a weak mobile signal from my Dad’s room, so this is just a short missive to let everyone know we’re okay.
The minivan is a dark red color. Help me think of names.
Scarlet O’Honda? I like plain old Ruby….
Van Burgundy? Maroonmobile?
In a nod to Texas Tech: The Red Raider?
One last suggestion: Ginger?
Ooh, Ginger. That’s it. We’re going with Ginger!
I was also seriously considering Ruby, Laura, but the minivan is a little more on the orange side of red, so it didn’t quite fit.
Chris, you win for most entertaining suggestions. The minivan’s full name is Ginger Van Burgundy.
Thanks, everyone! And stay tuned — we’re all in the midst of blogging right now.
You need to post a photo of Ginger! From your “Ginger Mom”
GVB. I love it.
Everyone loves a ginger….
I am super-excited for the return of Room Art Critiques!
I enjoyed reading today’s blog. I was particularly taken with the photo of Tim’s cleavage! Also, I am taking a poll; how many blog readers actually read The History of Fort Clark? Be honest!
