Follow up visit

This afternoon Thelma had her follow up with the surgeon. Everything was good. She still has some swelling but he said that will go down in about another month. He said biopsy came back negative.That  was good. She had a nodule on her thyroid That is why they had to take part of it. Now in Jan she sees the Dr that sent her to the surgeon to see how her levels are doing. Think that is around the 17 or so. After that we hope to head south. We had a little snow during the night but nothing on the roads around here. They had a couple of schools closed in Jay and Wells county which are SE of us. Well guess that is it for tonight. We are pretty boring when we are not camping. We wish all of you a Blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year.    Ron Thelma and Eli

Catch up time

I seem to have trouble keeping up with this blog. Not much going on. Yesterday we went to a funeral for a cousin. I think 3rd. I remember when my Mom passed he asked me where all the cousins were. Well a lot of them are gone. I told Thelma that I was making sure one was going to be there. He had been in a nursing home for 4 years so it was a blessing. Got to talk to some of the cousins at the dinner after. Since he had served in WW2 they placed an American flag on the casket as we went to the cemetery. They then folded it at the end and gave it to his wife. That is always so great to see. We have had all our leaves picked up by the city. Today I had the neighbor guy come over and help me put in a couple of new bibs for the washer hoses. One of the hoses got a hole in it and when I tried to take it off it broke. So had to replace them. He has all the tools. He is getting up in years so don't know what I will do when he is gone. He gave me a couple pipe wrenches. big ones. I have one smaller one. Well guess that is it for now. Gary our son has surgery for gall bladder on Fri and Thelma has surgery a week from Wed. Busy times.  Later all Ron Thelma and Eli

Sunday, November 4, 2012


This has been a pretty busy week. On Monday Thelma and I had eye appt. We both had to get new glasses. We decided to get the transition lenses. They came in Fri. So far I really like them so does Thelma. They even get a little dark in the car. I had some years ago and they didn't change when in a vehicle. On Tues Thelma had hair appt. I had mine on Wed. morning and then in the afternoon we had our Dr appt. Our A1C was good. Mine was 6.8. Wish it was a little lower but Dr was pleased. Cholesterol was good also. Then on Thursday Thelma had her appt with the surgeon for the para-thyroid gland. The Dr did a scan and found some nodes on her thyroid. So part of that needs to come out too. She will have the surgery on Dec 12. SO we don't know when we are going south at this point. We might just head for Al. and stay there till time for out retiree rally in Louisiana Right now we don't know. Thelma needs to see the Dr that sent her to the surgeon 30 days after the surgery . That means at least till the middle of Jan before we can go anywhere. Well guess that about catches up our week. Now we have nothing planned for awhile.  Later all Ron Thelma and Eli

They had quite a few trailers there. On Fri we came back to the Fort and parked at Johnny Appleseed campground. Our friends from Ky are here so we decided to stay a week here with them. Has made it nice as then we don't have  to travel all the way from the south side of town to the north. We went out to the house on Fri and stopped and picked up mail. Did some laundry. Also went out on Sunday and cut grass. With the rain we have had it has really gotten green and grown. I also picked up some branches and put them on the chipper pile. Got a bunch to do. It has been pretty nice weather here. Cool at night and warm during the day. There is also a friend of ours here who we camped with years ago when we both belonged to the same camping club.

Thursday, July 19, 2012


Well At last we had some rain.I looked this morning after the rain stopped and we had 2.25 inches of rain in the last two days. I can't even remember when we had rain. Think it might have been when we had the storms a couple of weeks ago.This is the most we have had in quite a while. This will maybe help the soybeans around here. I think it is too late for the corn. We went to a garage sale this morning in the rain. Thelma bought a quilt stand for 5 $ It is in really good shape. It was and estate sale. Nothing else to interest us. My niece in Tipton In had lighting  hit her big oak tree. Stripped the bark right off it. Her and her Mom were in the car just arriving home when it happened. Scared them. She now has a mess to clean up.Well that is it from here. We have been using the pool the last week or so. Sure feels good when it is 90 or more. Later all Ron Thelma and Eli

Lost the power again.

Last evening we went to a funeral home out north of town. Had some hard rain and hail there. We then went to eat. When we were almost home noticed some stop lights not working. Thought oh oh Sure enough we had no power. Fired up the generator and plugged in the camper. Slept in it last night. Sometime during the night the power came on as I had left the outside light on When I woke up this morning the light was on. Boy this has been some week . They have almost everyone back on power now I think.Well that is it for now. Later all Ron Thelma and Eli

Wednesday, July 4, 2012

Update on power

We got our power back on Monday just before noon. We had to be at the hospital for Thelma to have an iron infusion. She is low on iron so has had three iron infusions. Also had a couple of other tests. She goes in later this month to see another specialist for her thyroid. That is part of the reason we are not going to Canada for our campvention. Since medicare doesn't cover us up there we are not taking any chances on anything going wrong. We have not missed one since we rejoined. Today it is 100 with a heat index of 106 last I looked. Think I got the pool about ready to use. Hope so It is about84 in the water. Well that is it for now Later all Have a happy 4th

Back Home

Well we are back home. We are tired. We had a good rally. On Thurs night we had Larry Gatling and the Gatling brothers. This was a good show. On Fri night was Burt Backarach He was okay I guess. Not my type of music. On Sat night was Sheryl Crow. We stayed about 10 Minutes and walked out along with half the crowd. It was so loud and not the type of music for 60 - 80 year olds. Don't know who did the entertainment but they should be fired.. On Sunday they had and Elvis impersonator. He was really good. I would place him right behind the Gatling's.He had a nervous twitch in his leg. It kept shaking all the time. Ha. He didn't try to sing like Elvis. But did so many of his songs. The rally had a lot of motorhomes. Not a lot of towables. I will post some pictures and also put a link up for all the pictures in the next few days. It is going to be hot here the next few days. like 100+. Need to get the pool ready. Any other year it would be cool when we are home. Not this year.

Tuesday, June 5, 2012


Thought I should update. We have not gone camping this week. We had talked about going to a retiree rally in Ohio but decided to skip it this year. Need to get some things done around here. Have a wedding Sat night. Here is a couple of pictures from the samboree that we went to last week. Don't know if you know what they are or not. I remember them from a long time ago.

The first one is a binder. This is what you cut the wheat with and made it into bundles and then you stacked them up and made shocks with them
The second one is the separator or thrashing machine as we called it.This is an Advance Rumley like Uncle Carl and Uncle Rudy had. I remember going around the to the neighbors and thrashing. The women always made great meals. I drove a tractor with a wagon for a few years and then loaded the bundles on the wagon
The last one is an old type of sickle type of cutter and wind rower.The boards had rakes on them and moved the wheat of in windrows and then you had to go along and pick it up and put it on the wagon.  So little history lesson today. I imagine they get these out when they have their fair. Well that is it for  tonight. Later all Ron Thelma and Eli

Cold and Windy

So far it has been a cold and windy Sat. Yesterday was not too bad. This morning it was windy and cold. We had a tour of a small candy factory/store about 8 miles north of here. That was very interesting. They do almost everything by hand. They did a slide show. Then we bought some sugar free candy. They had a lot of it. On the way home it started sleeting. Couldn't believe that. It turned to rain after we got home. Stopped on the way and filled up the truck with fuel. This afternoon we played card bingo. Thelma won 3 times the last time she won 5 dollars. Two other times she got 2 60. She never wins at regular bingo where you put something on the cards. Tonight we have a chicken dinner and then entertainment. Elvis is in the house. He had been here before. He is pretty good. He doesn't do all the Elvis shaking Just sings his songs good. Well that is it for today. Later all Ron Thelma and Eli

Got the camper back

This morning I went down and picked up the fiver. When I hooked it up and plugged in the electric cord it said trailer disconnected on my brake controller. Oh Oh. So I tried the hazard lights. Nothing on the trailer. Pulled up to the office and told them We have a problem. The service manager came out and checked. I didn't have any turn signals coming out of the truck. Well I had blown a fuse under the hood. Got that fixed. Still no brakes. The checked the box at the hitch and they had wired it wrong. They fixed that and I was on my way. Got new studs on the rear axle. Now I need to find all the nut covers that I took off when we had all the flats. They are in the basement somewhere. So we have 4 new tires and one new spare. I kept the one other tire that I bought and going to put it on another rim and have two spares when we make a long trip like south to Fl . That way I won't get taken again. The guy down in Ky really took me. I bought the tires here for half the price that guy charged me. Nothing you can do when you are stranded on the road.  Well that is it for tonight. Fri we leave for a weekend camping over in Ohio with our FCRV family. We spent 14 years over there when International closed our plant here in Ft Wayne. Later all Ron Thelma and Eli

I hate this new blogger

I sure wish they had this new format or whatever you call it up their you know what. I sure have a lot of trouble finding my way around. I haven[t posted for a few days and when I got on it was new. Does anybody else hate it or do you like it better. I don't know why they had to change it. Well off my soapbox now  later  Ron and Thelma and Eli

New tires

Today I had new tires put on the trailer. They were the same make as what I had put on down in Ky when we had two flats. I got two here for almost what one cost me down there. I had to pay a extra charge since the guy came out to us but the tire was about 50$ more than what I paid here. I also took the trailer to a dealer to have the studs replaced on the hub. The rear axle had both hubs with two damaged studs. They will replace all six in each one. Boy this has been an expensive year. Hope to have it back by the weekend of the 27-8 We are planning on going to Ohio for a campout over there. He said he should be able to do it. I have somebody coming to fix the dryer Fri afternoon. Yea more money. We went to the laundromat the other day to get some clean clothes. Well guess that is it for tonight Later all Ron Thelma and Eli

A bad day

We got started around 9 this morning. Stopped at a tire store and got the tires all aired up. We made pretty good time. When we got into Ky we had one tire blow out along I65. Called road service and they sent somebody out to change it. Had to wait an hour or more. He put the spare on and then about an hour later the spare blew. Of course we had no spare. drove along the berm to the next exit and got off. There was a station there so asked them about a tire place. They gave me a number to call. I talked to the guy and he had a tire so he came out and put a new tire on . Big bucks. Tire plus service call. Now we are in Sheperdsville, Ky for tonight and tomorrow night. I will try and find a tire here tomorrow. We have not unhooked as it was dark when we got here. Got the electric hooked up and came in. They have wifi here so tomorrow will try and get all the pictures uploaded. The Mc Ds. wifi sucked. Well that is for tonight Hope tomorrow is better  Later Ron Thelma and Eli

Saturday, March 31, 2012


We went to the reenactment today. Talk about a muddy mess. It rained yesterday morning and the place was terrible. I know they had nothing to do with the rain. They did not have the battlefield set up very well. The rebels had there backs to us. They should have had them 90d from us. That way we could have seen both sides. This was our 4th one to see.  This is the worst one as far as organization goes. Talked to a reenactor walking down the road and said this was his fifth one and he agreed with me as for the organization. Not sure why The last one was over 10 yrs ago. I was still working at least we think so. I did take some pictures and a little video with my camera. Tomorrow I am going to McDs and use their wifi to upload some pictures and video. We will be leaving on Monday morning. Not sure exactly what time and where we will be stopping. Will just drive and see. Might try and make it to Shepardsville Ky and stop overnight there. Depends on the weather what time we get started and traffic. WE have ordered a DVD of this battle. Should be pretty good as they have people right out in the field with the troops. It is thundering here right now. Might get some rain If they get rain at the battlefield site it will really be a mess.  Well that is for tonight. Later all Ron Thelma and Eli

Friday, March 30, 2012

Big day tomorrow

Today we went out for lunch. Had coupons for free appetizer and free cobbler. We had to pay for one cobbler but it was worth it. We had rotel cheese and tortilla chips for the appetizer. Brought some of that home. Thelma brought home some of her meal. Tomorrow we are going to the reenactment. Getting up early as I expect a traffic jam. They are predicting a lot of watchers. It rained this morning. I awoke about 3 or so and it was lightly raining then. It rained harder as the day went on. It finally quit about noon. Then the sun came out. It never did get as warm as they had predicted. Well That is it for tonight  Later all Ron  Thelma and Eli

Laid back day

This morning we went to the Waffle house here for breakfast After that we went to the Laundromat to wash some clothes. That should be the last we do till we get home. Then this afternoon I washed the front end of the truck and front of the Montana. Boy I don't think we ever had that many bugs. Not sure where we got them all. Still not all off the front of trailer. They might wait till we get home. I really don't want to get out the ladder here. It is a lot cleaner than it was.  Well that is it for tonight Not sure what else we will do tomorrow. Possible go out for lunch We have a couple of coupons for an appetizer or dessert at one of the restaurants. Later all. Ron Thelma and Eli

Shiloh Battlefield

Today we went and toured the Shiloh battlefield. Took us about 4 hours. I think. Very interesting. Saw a short movie at the visitors center. Then did the driving tour. I was amazed at how many units from Indiana were clear down here for the war. Here is some pics
Here is the Shiloh church which gave the battle its name. This is where it started.
This tree has an eagles nest in it You can just barely see the eagles head in the center. Maybe will try again and see if I can get a better picture.
Some of the Calvary are camped at the interpretive center tonight. This horse has the neatest markings. almost blends in with the trees.
This is not a horse but a mule. And he was letting everyone know it with his noise. Sounded funny. Well that is it for tonight Tomorrow we are doing some laundry. That should last till we get home. Later all Ron Thelma and Eli

A little sightseeing

Today we went into Corinth for a little sightseeing. First this morning we went to the Civil war interpretive center. Forgot my camera so will have to go back. We also went to the visitors center . The lady there was very informative. She gave us lots of brochures to look over and showed us on a map different things to see. And where to eat. Then after going back to the trailer for lunch we went into town to the depot. This is where two tracks cross. One going east to west and one north to south.
While we were there 3 trains went through going to the west. Here is one of them
We then went to the Corinth National Cemetery. This is not just for Civil war soldiers. There were some buried here from all wars. Even after they are out of service.
Notice how they all line up. No matter how you look at them they are all in straight rows. Tomorrow we are heading for Shiloh battlefield. Should be good.  Later all Ron Thelma and Eli

Monday, March 26, 2012

We are in Corinth

We arrived here around about 3:30 this afternoon. We had some pretty good roads and also one that was real nasty. Bumpity bumpity bump. Eli did not like it at all. Tomorrow we are going into the visitors center and get some info on this town. We will not get up real early as we have quite a few days to do this. Need to find out exactly where The Shiloh battlefield is from here. They have a 40 % chance of rain for Sat. Hope not. We are staying at a campground here that also has a gun club. I went down and looked at the trap house. I think they are automatic. Bunch of clay pigeons in them. Don't know if they will be shooting here while we are here or not. Well don't know much else tonight. We have a night light right above us so Eli has his own light for when he goes out. Later all Ron Thelma and Eli

Really behind

It looks like I didn't post at all this week. We have been busy all week. I have taken pictures since we got there. Almost 500 in the Picasa web album. Now I need to get them uploaded to the web. Will do that next week when we have wifi. When we got back to the trailer at night after our program it was late by the time I put the pictures on Picasa and checked email. This next week will be laid back. Maybe we can get a little rest. Sleep in. Today is the last day. This evening we have some entertainment and then our parade of states and provinces. This is when all state parade across the stage and make all the noise you can. Should be a good one. I finally had the afternoon free so worked some more on pictures and thought I would update the blog. We leave tomorrow morning for Lake City Fl for a full timers campout. Then we are heading up to Tennessee for a Civil War Reenactment. That is at the end of March After that we will start for the northern area. Back to Fort Wayne. Well That is for now.

Nice Day Till Now

Today was a great day. Sunny and 75 or more. Had shorts on all day. This evening just after I came back to the camper it let loose. It has been raining and lightning for about an hour now. At least it is after everything is done for the day. The entertainment last night was great. This lady sang a tribute to Patsy Kline. She was good. Tonight we had the Tallahassee big band. It was okay but not my kind of music. They seemed to like it so okay. I would rather have country. I guess that is it for tonight. Tomorrow we have our State pictures taken. They have a professional come in and do them. He usually does school pictures. He has done these for quite a few years. Well later all Ron Thelma and Eli

Dreary Day

Today was a dreary day. I don't think the sun was out at all. We had church this morning and then
Thelma and I went to a Winn-Dixie grocery. Got a few thinks so I can make omelets in the morning. Right after I take some pictures of the Chairmen of the committees for the rally. Then we are mostly free the rest of the day. Will probably have to do it again Tuesday as some of the men are going to play golf. I guess I have to work around their schedule. It has sprinkled here some today. Not a whole lot. We have a lot of the campers in today. The rest should arrive tomorrow I would think.  Well that is it for tonight.  Later all Ron Thelma and Eli

Sunday and Monday are early bird days. Hope we have a good turnout. We spent the day getting set up and then this evening went to Logan's to eat. We went to another restaurant but when we saw the prices we left I am not paying over 20 for a steak . I don't care how good it is. What we had at Logan's was very good.  Well that is it for tonight. Will probably post some pictures tomorrow.  Later all Ron Thelma and Eli

Leaving in morning

Today is the last day here. Tomorrow we are going into the Fairgrounds in Tallahassee. We sure have enjoyed our stay here. Today was a cloudy dreary day. Too bad it had to end on this weather. Here is what it looked like this morning.
It sure was foggy This guy was out fishing around 10:00 this morning. There was a lot of boats on the lake this morning. Not sure why although the campground is pretty full. Here is another foggy one
Remember all those nice sunsets I took this week. Well here is what it looked like this evening about the same time I always took the other sunny ones. I knew today was not going to be a sunset photo time
As you can see the fog is gone but no sun today. Well it was nice for 4 days. We will try and come back here again when in this area. If you are in the area it is worthwhile to stop. This is the east bank COE on Lake Seminole. A great place. When we get to the big city I will find a McDs and upload all the pictures I took so far this winter and put a link on here for all of them. Well that is it for tonight. We will have a couple of days to get ready for our Retiree rally at the Fairgrounds. I will be doing the pictures which keeps me hopping . But I enjoy it.  Later all Ron Thelma and Eli

Another great day and sunset

When I look at the sunsets I think of what God created in the beginning. How could it be so beautiful. Well he didn't make ugly things in this world of ours . This noon or a little before we took of for Quincy Fl which is a little east of here to Winn Dixie Grocery. We stopped at a restaurant to eat lunch and I purchased a paper. In it was an ad for Winn Dixie. They had a lot on sale. We got out of there with over 50. Then this evening we had another beautiful sunset. You might get tired of these eventually. But it's my blog and I love them so here is another one
And now one from last night a moon set
Well that is it for tonight. Hope you all enjoy the pictures. I do.  Later all

Another gorgeous day

Another great day here at East Bank COE. This campground is on Lake Seminole. It is on the Fl Ga line. It has 37,000 acres of water, 376 miles of shoreline and over 22,000 acres of land. This lake is humongous. Today Thelma and I drove over to the dam. They generate power here. When we drove the road to the dam we went from Ga to Fl and then back again. Our phones are on Central time and the campground here is on Eastern. The tower for cell phones is on the Fl side of the lake. Some of the stations for TV are from Fl are on CDT. Well Here are some pictures from today including a couple of sunsets.
Now for a little wildlife around here Haven't seen a whole lot.
Here is our lot Sure is nice
Well that is it for tonight. Not sure what tomorrow will bring. Think we might run into the town down the road a bit and see what it has. Later all Ron Thelma and Eli

Here is another one
Now here is a couple from the MOC that we went out to dinner with Sunday afternoon. Good mexican food and good visit with friends They have a Greyhound called Sunshine. She is such a sweetheart.
This is Jim, Carol and Sunshine. She is in the middle. She about went crazy when whe we got back from eating. We had to replace the battery in the trailer. It was shot. That was why the slide would not come in. It took them a little over and hour to fix it. This place is called Tri-am trailer sales. They are in Ocala. Great service and friendly bunch of people. We got here around 4 this afternoon. Well that is it for tonight  later all RonThelma and Eli

Flea Market day

This morning we got up around 8 and did our stuff here and then headed for a place to eat breakfast. The lady at the campground had told me about a restaurant down the road but we didn't see it so we ended up at IHop. We had a good breakfast but the coffee was 2:29 a cup. I know coffee is expensive but jeez that is ridiculous. Then we went to the Market of Marion. This is a pretty good size flea market. We spent about 4 hrs there. We were both tired by the time we got through. We bought some stuff. This evening we went to church at 6. Now tomorrow morning we can sleep in a little later.  Think we are going to the place where the MOC friends are staying tomorrow afternoon. That will be our last day here in this area.
Monday we move north to around the Tallahassee area. East Bank COE.  Well that is it for tonight. Later all Ron Thelma and Eli

MOC Friends

Hey Ron when you go to meet people you haven't seen for awhile take the camera. We met Jim and Carol and Sunshine today for lunch and forgot to take the camera. Duh. I usually take it with us when we are out and about. Well we will see them Sunday as we are going to their park to see what it is like. They had the greyhound along. She is so cute. Not quite as tall as our son's Grey's. She was really good while we ate. We sat outside and that way she could be with us. We hope to do some sightseeing while here. We only have a couple of days. We think the mail is straitened out. I went to the post office here in Ocala  and talk to the manager. He called the post office at home and they have the right address now so our son should start getting the mail. Sure hope so. We have cable here so getting to see all the damage around the country from tornado's. Boy is that bad. Hope everyone stays safe. Well guess that is it for tonight. More tomorrow. Going to a flea market just a ways down the road.  Later all Ron Thelma and Eli.

We have moved

We are now in Ocala at Wandering Oaks campground. Not too bad of a place. It is not where I would stay for a long time. We are here for 4 days. Having trouble with our mail being fowarded. It was supposed to start going back to Ft Wayne to our sons house. Nope. we got some today at Lake wales. I will call the post office in Fort Wayne tomorrow and see what happened. That is the trouble with this mail stuff. Maybe if they raise the rates again they can get it right. Not sure what we will do tomorrow. Want to get together with some Montana owners for lunch. Need to call them  Okay that is it for tonight Later all Ron Thelma and Eli

Moving tomorrow

Tomorrow we move up the road about 122 miles to Ocala. Staying at a full hook up campground. Will be there till Monday and then move to East Bank COE park. We have enjoyed our stay here and will miss the place. Hoping to maybe get a lot rented here again next year. The lot we are on the guy says we will not rent next year. He wants to sell it. That is a shame as we liked the lot. We have a lot to do in the morning to get ready .
Since we are only going 122 miles we aren't in any hurry to get going. They are paving the road in front of us so that might make a difference as to when we get started. This paving was to be done by the end of Jan. Boy that must have been a long month. This afternoon we went to the grocery to get a few things. We are stocked up for a few more days. We went out with some friends for one last lunch together.  Well guess that is it for today. Will update tomorrow after we get all set up in our new place. It is hot here today. `91 right now  at 5:30

But he does that a lot. He is getting older. I washed part of the camper yesterday morning have part to do yet. Wed will be packing day.

Tarpon Springs, Fl

Today three of us couples drove to Tarpon Springs. This is the sponge capital of the US. Thelma and I rode with one couple of and came home with the other couple. We had a great time. Too bad it is so far there. We didn't have a lot of time to see everything. We left at 9 and got back about 6:30. Made a long day for Eli. Here are  a few pictures from that trip

At lunch one of the ladies ordered an appetizer. It is some kind of cheese that they set on fire. Man what flames. When this waiter was clearing our table he took on to many plates as one dropped on the floor
Don't know what kind of duck this is. If anyone knows let me know I have a couple of more to post that I don't know. I like taking pictures of the wildlife
Okay what is this one, He just sat there all the time.
This one was right where a guy was fishing. He was looking for a handout. There was supposed to be some dolphins in this bay but we did not see any.
Need help on this one too. Sure glad some people know there wildlife. I need to get a book on these I guess. Well that is all for tonight.  Later all  Ron Thelma and Eli
