I didn't write it, it is circulating among my friends and it resonated with me... Bob doesn't even know I posted it...LOL he thinks FB is the devil... the seamy side of the web. Some days, I'm agreeing with him, but it's one way to keep up with my kids, grandkids pictures, and cute things they do, My nieces, nephews, their kids, and all the many kids from the church youth group I used to help with back when my kids attended. (most of them are grown, moved out of the area, married and have cute kids now too....). So.

Nice pic of Jackie and Ed but did you notice the stare down between Papa Steve and that hombre just over Jackies shoulder? Looks like a showdown at the OK Buffet!

High winds and gusts today, so we decided to stay in Q 2 more nights. Once again we seem to have lucked into a site situated to accommodate the prevailing winds. Then on to somewhere near Phoenix for a few days. Hope to visit with my cousin again and see our long time friends Marty and Roe.

Just chilling and enjoying the outer rainbow. Can't wait to see everyone in Deadhorse for Mel and Kates Retirement and Full Time Kickoff Curiosity. It's just around the corner!

Stephanie Stephens January 18, 1944 - March 26, 2016

Stephanie and Bob Stephens are known among RVmutants as “Teffy”, RVM27.

I’ve been trying all morning to write these words: Stephanie died last Saturday. I don’t know how people do eulogies. My throat closes up just from missing her. But I want to tell you a little about her and how much she meant to me.

On a late autumn evening in 1971 my husband and I rode our old Royal Enfield motorcycle 90 miles from Houston to Groves, Texas, population 18,067. Groves was a thriving little town back in '71. Our destination was the home of Bob and Stephanie Stephens. Our purpose was to check out a litter of rare Belgian Tervuren puppies (Tervs). I came home with a puppy tucked in my leather jacket and a new friend tucked in my heart. My life was changed and Stephanie was the pivotal point.

Bob and Stephanie were officers in the Beaumont Kennel Club. They bred and showed Tervs and Basset Hounds and we traveled the dog show circuits together. Back then the star of their family was a mutt aptly named, “Trouble." Stephanie gave Trouble a great deal of freedom and, in return, little Trouble kept the larger Tervs in line.

A few years into our friendship Bob and Stephanie adopted their sons, brothers Nick, 8 and Alex, 6. Stephanie owned and operated Teffy’s, a hobby shop in Groves. They also owned a sports adventure shop called “Great Outdoors” and we spent many exciting weekends camping and canoeing the upper Guadalupe River. Eventually the Great Outdoors evolved into the tour bus business and they traveled all over the U.S. and Canada with groups of adventuresome folks. Stephanie planned and promoted the adventures and occasionally would drive one of the buses.

Stephanie had her first stroke nearly 14 years ago. She lost the use of her right arm and leg, but she worked hard and after many months was able to stand and walk on her own. Bob sold the buses so he could be with Stephanie. They bought a motor home and have spent the past few years traveling around the country meeting new people.

Stephanie was always soft-spoken. She was never crass or hateful. She was, however, quite cunning about getting her way and making Bob happy about letting her have it. She would give advice if you asked, never judgmental, and always gently and with compassion. And, she was fearless. She would try anything. I close my eyes and I see her taking the Guadalupe River rapids, paddle expertly gliding through the water, guiding the canoe around the boulders. I see her standing in Teffy’s, tactfully suggesting a different hobby technique to a customer. I see her drilling her dog on his exercises before entering the obedience ring. I hear her explaining her views on children learning to make their own choices and getting to enjoy the consequences. I see us in the pool at the YMCA as I tread water and complain, and she gives me wise council with a tinge of “Teffy humor," just enough so that I don’t take myself too seriously. I miss her soft laughter and those blue, blue eyes that twinkle still.

So sorry to hear of Stephanies loss. My condolences go out to Bob and family and those who were personally touched by Stephanies life, including many mutants.
