We thank God

This afternoon Gary called me on the cell phone while we were shopping at Sam's. He had an interview on Monday with a company in Butler. They told him they would let him know by Fri. I thought that when I saw it was him that maybe it was good new. It was. He starts on Monday. We are so thankful that he nos has a job. They told him that normally they start people on contract at first bu they hired him permanently. That is good. He will get 3 weeks vacation instead of two. This come at a good time since Kristin is starting her senior year. That's about it for now. Just wanted to let all know the good news. Pass it on if you want. Later Ron Thelma and Eli

Home again

We are home for a week. We will leave next Wednesday for Tipton for a state campout. We are going in early with another couple and stay till Mon. That will give us some time with Thelma's sister and niece. Think we will have them out Sun evening for a cookout. Or else do it at their house. Thelma has already hit the bed. We will sleep in in the morning. That is about it for tonight. We made it home in 5 hrs and 20 minutes with three stops on the way. One was for lunch
So that is pretty good time. Later Ron Thelma and Eli

Leaving tomorrow

Okay First this rally was put on by the affinity group. Good Sam Camping world coast to coast trailer life motor home life Think that is all. They do this every year. Next year is at Redmond Oregon. too far for me. We went to the mega cavern in Louisville. It is an old stone quarry where they took the stone out from under ground. It is under the Louisville zoo and a Kmart and parking lot. It us huge. Some of it is used for storage. That's about it for tonight. The patten museum was good.

The rally is over,

Tonight was the last night. We went to church this morning at the rally.
The sermon was pretty good. Then we looked at the vendors one last time and made a couple of purchases. Came home about 3:00 Thelma and I went back this evening and watched the rally idol thing. The guy who won sang country western. He was good. They had around 2200 rigs here. Think when it was here in 2003 they like 5000 or more. You can tell that the industry is down. Not near the trailers and Motor homes like before. Well guess that's about it for tonight. Jack and I are going to Fort Knox tomorrow morning and then we are doing a cave later in the afternoon. That should cool us down. Later all Ron Thelma and Eli

One more day

Tomorrow is the last day of the rally. They are having a church service at 9:00 in the morning. We will go to that and then look around at the vendors one last time.l They close at 2:00 so we will come home then. They have evening entertainment so will go back for that. Tonight's entertainment was okay. They did Neil Diamond songs Not my favorite at all. We went to a restaurant with Jack and Barb using entertainment coupons. That makes it cheap to go. They have pet adoption thing here with dogs and cats. Know at least 5 dogs and 1 cat have been adopted. That is good. That's about it for tonight It is still hot here. The a/c hasn't shut off all day. This is when you need two of them. Later all Ron Thelma and Eli

Shephardsville, Ky

We got here about 11:30 Jack and Barb had gotten here just a little bit before us. It is sticking hot here. So what's new. When we first got here I thought it was thundering but then Jack said that is from Fort Knox. We may go there next Monday as they are moving the armored division to Fort Benning Ga. I think the last time I saw it was way back when we were down here with Gary. Jack said he is pretty sure that is the last time he saw it and Gary was along. That is a long time ago. Tomorrow we go to the rally and get checked in and then do a couple of seminars. We are going to bed early tonight. We went to Mexican restaurant tonight and had Margarita's. They were huge. Thelma could not drink all of her's. That is about it for tonight. Later all Ron Thelma and Eli

Went to Bandidos for lunch/supper. Had some Margaritas. They sell a pitcher for 5 bucks. Thelma drinks one glass I get the rest. Good. About ready for bed. It is 9:42 and Thelma is in bed. We are both whipped. I think part of it is the heat we had up there. We had a good campvention. A few problems but turned out good. That's about it from here Later all Ron Thelma and Eli

Thelma is already in bed. Eli does not the parade as he thinks he is not a dog and doesn't like other dogs. Thelma got a lot of compliments on the parade. They told some of the team leaders that it was the best one they ever had. That made her feel good. She is tired and we wont be home only a couple of days and head to Louisville for the Rally. We are meeting Jack and Barb there. Will be down there a week and head home a week from next Tuesday. Should be a little more relaxing for us. That's about it for tonight Later All Ron Thelma and Eli

Missed last night

Sorry I didn't get to do the blog last night. I have been really busy doing the pictures. I knew that when we started I would be busy. The band was late in getting started last night as the keyboard buy had a death in the family. He came back but it was late. We had to leave as Thelma had a steering committee meeting . I sat outside for a bit with Eli and then worked on pictures. Am trying to put comments on the pictures as I go. Not sure I will be able to keep up. There was a Mennonite group in here this afternoon selling homemade bread pies rolls noodles. I got a loaf of bread and pumpkin bars. They are very good. I ordered a peach pie for when they come back on Wed. They will keep it back for me. Should have ordered some noodles too. Guess I need to get back to work on the pictures. Have them on the puter and tweaked them some. Not need comments on them. That's about it for tonight Later all Ron Thelma and Eli

Sherryl came out here to the fiargrounds earlier than we expected. I was just shaving so finished that up and then went Sherryl had to take her dog to the groomers at Noon so we went after that to eat at the pizza shack by the tracks. Was good as usual. Right as we were leaving Sherryl's phone rang. Annie was done so we went and picked her up. I held her in the back seat. She is a hand full. After taking her home we went to Wall mart.
