Saluda NC

We are in a Passport campground tonight. It is back in the hills. What a time getting to it. We missed one turn and it really screwed Samantha up. That's GPS talk. Finally cam by a place and saw some trailers so pulled in and asked. The lady laughed and said Yea you found it. They had the same trouble. We went into town to Cracker Barrel and got some good food. Brought home some turkey for Eli. Also filled up with fuel for tomorrow.  We have a little over 200 to go. Should get there in good time. We will be meeting some friends there Spending about 5 days there and then moving to Ladson for campvention. Don't have cell service but pretty good wifi That's about it for tonight  Later Ron Thelma and Eli

The Embassy was full. We had told the ones that were invited to the graduation to just come for the open house. Paul and Linda and Lynn Ann came from Tipton. Alan and Julie came from Angola.

We are home for a couple of weeks. This Sunday Kristin has graduation and then the next Sat is an open house at Concordia church. Can;t believe she is graduating. Remember when she was little and we kept her here and she would sit and read and have the TV on. Read out loud. Wish I had video of that. We may go to a retiree rally in Ohio after that. Not sure yet. Opened the pool today. Now need some chemicals and sand for the filter. It has been warm here. Guess that's it for now.  Later Ron Thelma and Eli
