Home for a few days

We got home this afternoon about 1 or so. Not real sure. We stopped in Tipton to see Thelma's brother Paul who was in the hospital He had pneumonia and his heart fluttered from the high fever. He will be going home today. Then we stopped at Violets for a few minutes. Sherryl wants to put a railing by the side door so Violet can get in easier. Yes I will take a picture of all the cans and stuff that we got. May take a few days. We have had a lot of rain here in the last couple of hours. Not sure how much. We got home without hitting any. It had rained in Tipton. earlier. Guess we were lucky. Not much else new. Later all Ron Thelma and Eli

Samboree over

Tomorrow we leave for home. It has been a fun filled few days. The gentleman who was missing was found at 11:00 last night at his home. He did not know where he had been. Thank God he was okay. I think they need to take away his keys. Tonight we had some entertainers from Tenn. They were really good. I liked them better that Spike. We won a food basket this afternoon in a raffle. It was so heavy that it took Bob and I to carry it back to the trailer. Bunch of cans cake mixes Spaghetti and sauce to go with it. Not sure what all. We can eat for a week or so. That's about it for tonight. It is 10:30 now already. We just got back about 10 minutes ago. Later all. Ron Thelma and Eli

Spike and the bulldogs

Tonight for entertainment we had Spike and the bulldogs. They were really good. Did one and a half hour show. We really enjoyed. it. Tomorrow is a full day and we leave Monday morning. The reason we cannot run air con is that they run temporary wiring and it is not heavy enough to run A/Cs. There is some sad news here. An 84 year old gentleman left around 12:30 today to get gas and has not returned. Don't know if he has the start of Alzheimer's or not. It is a shame. As far as I know his wife is still here. He left in the pickup. It is even on Channel 15s website. So sad Hope it turns out okay We may know more in the morning. or tomorrow sometime. Later All Ron Thelma and Eli

A great day

Today was a great day. We slept in this morning as neither one of us slept very good Wed. Night. Slept good last night was really tired. It is hot here and can't run the air so we have fans running. Have one by the bedroom windows Bought a power protection outfit today. We are afraid of the power that we are going to have at our campvention in Mi. So Bob and I each bought one. Since we both got one they did not charge us sales tax which saved us some money. He got a 50 amp but I bought a 30 as that is what we always use. So we shall see. Tonight they had two guys that did impression type music. The one guy had some trouble with his voice so he did not sing much . The other one did a lot of Elvis and he was pretty good. He really played to the audience. I just took a shower and finishing this up and then will go to bed. It is almost 11 so time for me to go . See that my font changed Wont mess with it tonight.

Forgot to post last night. We got home about 1:30 I guess. I did 3 loads of laundry yesterday and 2 more today. Cut the grass this morning and then got a couple of bulbs for the camper.

Than went out to Johnny Appleseed campground to see Jack and Barb. Got home about 10:00. It has been a very busy day. Tomorrow is not going to be all that much better.

Here is a couple of pictures from the RVMuseum that we toured today. This is a 15 ft Shasta. We had a 13 ft one and this one is similar. Notice the canvas bunk in the rear. Our 13 ft one had that. I remember Gary outgrew that so soon. We had a great time looking at all the old trailers. I will put all the pictures on the web site when we get home. The wifi here is not all that good so will do it later. This afternoon we went to a Montana dealer and I got my latch for the screen door. Got it on. We also looked at a couple of fifth wheels. Nice. I talked to the service guy and going to take ours back this fall to have them fix a crack in the fiberglass. This has been a problem with a lot of Montana's. They can do it in one day so we might have to find something to do for a day. Will take it up after we are done camping. Later we went to a nursery landscape place and Thelma got a Very Bradley bag. It was a special deal. It had a lot of stuff in it. They had a bunch of little houses and stuff. They will be on the web site soon too. That's about it for now We will leave here sometime tomorrow morning. Have to leave by noon. Have to do laundry when we get home. Later all Ron Thelma and Eli
