Our job is over for now

Today was the last day of our rally. This morning they played games and this afternoon we had a meeting and then Ice cream. All in all I thought the rally went pretty good. This evening 9 of us went up to Bean Blossom and ate at restaurant. The food was good. I had to go up and mop the kitchen floor here. One of the officers told another that the floor needed to be mopped. Why he didn't do it I don't know. Some of these people are bossy. In the morning we are sleeping in. Then going to laundry. That way  we won't have so much to do.  Guess that's about it for tonight.  Later all Ron Thelma and Eli

Day 2

Today was another great day. It was a little cool this morning but warmed up . We had bean bag baseball this afternoon and right after that we had another boccie ball game. I was watching it and somebody came over and said they needed a nurse. One of our campers was slicing potato's  and cut his finger. We tried to stop the bleeding finally got is stopped part way. We decided he needed stitches so I took him and his wife to a redimed like place. He got 5 stitches. When we got back some of the people had sliced his potato's and were frying them out. We had our potluck dinner tonight. One club furnished the ham. It was a great time. Then Thelma and I came back and went and took showers.  Tomorrow morning us men are making breakfast for the women. Start at 6:30 Boy that is early. We will be doing eggs, sausage bacon biscuits and gravy orange juice and fruit. We eat at 8:00  Should be good. Tomorrow is our last day of the retiree rally. On Fri. starts the Invitational which is everybody else in the state . Hope we have a good crowd.  That's about it for tonight  Later all Ron Thelma and Eli

A few campers threw it for him  He just loved it. He was worn out tonight. This evening we had soup supper. Then played Euchre. Not sure why I play that game Never win. I am ready for bed  It has been a long day.  Later all Ron Thelma and Eli

We are in Nashville. No not the Tenn one. Indiana one. We got here about 10:00 this morning and got set up and then I made sure the restrooms were unlocked and showers unlocked. Pulled the covers off of the electrical boxes. Then greeted those that came in the afternoon. We got about 15 rigs here now. More will come tomorrow. This noon Thelma and I went into town for some lunch. Can't believe  how busy it is. In a couple of weeks it will be worse. We bought some taffy at a candy store. Might have to go back before the weekend. This evening we went up and got the coffee pots ready to perk in the morning. I will go up and start them and then go back to bed. What I said I did  this morning is part of our job. We also advice the officers on various things. This is our first year at this campout. Last year is when we excepted the job. We also have what we call a get together in the spring. Last year we furnished hamburgers and hot dogs and everybody else brought passing dishes. Guess that's about it for tonight. Later all.  Ron Thelma and Eli.

Johnson County Park

We are at the Johnson County park tonight. Boy is it dark around here Not many night lights. We went to the Cracker Barrel tonight for supper. Deceided not to cook in the trailer tonight. Since we will be leaving early in the morning. Around 8:30 which is early for us. We are going to the fairgrounds in Nashville, In for our retiree rally. Since we are the directors for this we need to go in early  and get power turned on and get doors unlocked. This is our first year for this Hope all goes well. We will probably be pretty busy but will try and post most nights. We had a good time at the Samboree. The church service this morning was not the best. But that is a different story. Guess that's it for tonight  Later All Ron Thelma and Eli

A lazy day

Today we didn't do much of anything. It was so windy here that Eli almost got blown away. We sat outside with our neighbors for awhile. We had chili for supper that came with the rally. It was pretty good but not enough spice in it for me. Tonight's entertainment was Jamie Coyne. Have not heard him before Wasn't all that bad but not the best. Thelma won a real nice necklace as a door prize. I will try and take a picture of it and post it. Tomorrow morning the Masonic lodge across the street is having all you can eat breakfast in the morning for a free will offering. Eggs sausage pancakes biscuit and gravy and drink. Then tomorrow evening the Volunteer FD is having a fish and chicken fry. We will eat good tomorrow. If I can get close enough to the computer tomorrow night I will tell you about all the good food. I hope.  Later All Ron Thelma and Eli

We are now in Greentown In for a samboree. We will  be here till Sun. We got here about 10:30 or so. This evening we went to Tipton to see Violet and Sherryl. I put a program on Sherryls computer and we went out to eat. We had a great time. Sherryl and I walked her dog after we got back. We will probably not see them again till next spring.

Were home

We got home about 12:30 Mon. Intended to post yesterday but the time got away from me. Thought of it last night when I got in bed. Too late then. Yes there is an escapade this week. But we did not think it was worth what they were going to charge for what you would get. It was 55$ more this year than last and not full hookups like last year. We had to make a choice of whether we wanted to go to it or the Pork Festival. Well the camping at the fairgrounds if 15 a night so it was a lot cheaper and got to see lee greenwood. Today would have been Moms birthday. Cant believe it has been that long. The house next door is still empty. Can't understand it. He put in a slab for a shed last fall and it still setting there. Well guess that's about it for tonight Later all Ron Thelma and Eli

Heading home tomorrow

Well all good things must come to an end. We have had a great time here at tipton. I think we wore our niece out. We kept here running almost the whole time we were here. This morning we went to Church  and then to breakfast. After that Thelma and I came back to the camper as Sherryl had to count money at church. We went back to there house around four and then went to Logans steakhouse in Noblesville. We got the special with appetizers and steak and a desert. Haven't ate the desert yet. Proibably tomorrow when we get home. Af ter we got back Sherryl and walked her dog Here is a couple of shots I took of the sunset. They are not as good as what it looked like yesterday evening but did n't have the camera along thenn

The first one is Sherryl and her dog. She walks this dog every evening except when it is raining. Annie has more energy that five  six year old kids. She is a ball of fun to be around. Her and I have become buddies. I tried to get a picture of her but she wouldn't stand still long enough

I think paul asked what all seminars I went to at the rally
Every rver neeeds a blog
B;logging beyond the basics
Picasa beyond the basics
Email on the road
Using google earth
Trip planning with the MS street and trips, Garmin  and Droid
 Guess that was all  Thats about it for tonight  Will leave here in the morning. :Probably go to MC Ds for breakfast and then come back and hook up. Will be home for about 11 days and then on the road again. Can't wait to get on the road again.

Almost got rained on. For supper we fixed hamburgers and hot dogs here at the camper. Violet and Sherryl  came out. It was good. Then Sherryl and I walked up town to get elephant ears. We each got one and went back to her house. I came back to the trailer and shared with 'Thelma It was pretty good. but had gotten a little cool by the time I got home.  Here is one of the cars at the show
