Truck fixed

Got the scratch fixed on the truck. Had been putting it off. Seemed like everytime I would think of it we had something else planned..Gary picked me up yesterday and brought me home. Today Thelma brought the car home. She drove yesterday from Meijr out on Maysville. First she had drove since before the knee replacement. They washed the truck evidently cause it was nice and clean. Sure hate to drive it. We went to Wendys for supper and took the truck to see if Thelma would have any problems getting it or out. She did good. The worst part is getting out. So we are good to go later this month. Im sick of this weather. Thats about it for now. Later all Ron Thelma and Eli

Well we are getting snow again. It has stopped for now. Just shoveled off the deck. My brother and his wife stopped in this afternoon. We had a nice visit. They will be leaving tomorrow to head back to Ill to see if their truck can be fixed quickley or if they need to leave it. It stopped on them on the way to Fort Wayne. I got a letter yesterday from the district court here in Fort Wayne. I have been selected for duty on the 12 of Jan. I hope it doesn't affect our plans to leave on the 18th. I sent a note in the questioner that we were planning on leaving at that time. Probably doesn't make any difference to them. Well that's about it for now. Later all Ron Thelma and Eli.

Merry Christmas

Well Christmas day is about over already. We had Christmas with Gary and Family last night. Dinner at our house and then we went to Church at 7:00. After that we went to Garys for gift exchange and pie. Today Thelma and I went for dinner in Fort Wayne and later in the afternoon went and feed Gary's dogs. What a ranbuntious bunch. It has been raining here off and on most of the day. Not sure if I would rather have snow or rain. Well that's about it from here.
May all who read this blog have a Blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year

Thought I better update this thing. We have been pretty busy for us. The other day I deceided to defrost the freezer in the basement. Boy did it need it. I ended up throwing out some stuff that was over two years old. Had two garbage sacks full. Well not completly full as they are two heavy full. Also put up some shelves on the door for the pantry. It holds a lot of the cans. We found some stuff in the pantry that we forgot about. Threw that out too. We baked some monster cookies yesterday and today I made some oatmeal and butterscotch. They are from Market day. We have some snow today. I think it quit now. It is really heavy. Course I didn't put the blade on the tractor so the snow will just stay there. What God puts down he will take away. That is what the guy who owned the mobile home park in Urbana always said. He was really bad about doing snow unless it really got deep. Not much else going on. We are still not sure exactly when we are leaving in Jan ?Will post on here when we are going to leave. Thats about it Later all RonThelma and Eli

New jack

Picked up the trailer today. They put a new jack on the left front side. The service writer says it was of me having the stabilizers on the front. I can not believe that so many other people on the Montana forum have them and have not had any problem.. I still think that it was something else. I am not really happy with this guy. He seems to be one of them that thinks he knows it all. So it is sitting in the driveway waiting till after the first of the year. We will probably leave about the middle of Jan. Depends on the weather forecast. Thats about it for now. Tomorrow we have a cookie walk at church and an open house at Edward Jones office. Sunday afternoon Concordia has their Christmas concert at the Embassy. That is always neat. Later all Ron Thelma and Eli

Cold, cold and colder

Boy this is not my kind of weather. It wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't for the wind. I am going down to get the trailer. They had it done earlier in the week but with the wind I wasn't about to pull it home. Now if I would had to have it it would have been different. Guess thats about it for now.

Few thoughts

Well still not have not heard anything about the trailer. They needed to get the part so it might take awhile. Guess we don't need it right now. We sure can't camp here at 27degrees. We went to a Memorial service for Darlene Wed night. Jack and Barb came from Ky. We picked them up at his Mom's. It was a very good service. The service was at Jim's church. (son). His wife sang a couple of songs. She sang bueatifully. The pastor did a real good job on the message for not really knowing the family. It sure is going to seem different when we talk about them. We have know them since 1968 when we both joined the camping club. Thelma is getting along pretty good. She doesn't have near the pain as she had for a while. She still can not stand for long times. Well that is about it from here. Later all Ron Thelma and Eli
