Back home

We came home on Fri morning. Spent a good week with friends. Talked about the old days camping. Had to mow the lawn again Sun afternoon. Seems like it is making up for all the time it didn't grow. We will be home till labor day weekend when we go to a Gypsy Journal rally in Celina Ohio. This is a good rally to learn a lot of different things. We have not been able to make it for a few years due to conflicting rallies. That is about it here. Later all Ron Thelma and Eli

Back in FortWayne Sort of

I'm a little behind in my blog. We went to the RV Show in Elkhart,In They held it this year at the RV  Hall of Fame Museum. It was outside and sprinkling a little. Made it kind of messy. 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. In fact we were charter members of it. We had some great times camping together  Right Bob. His wife passed away a couple of years ago.  So he and his cat are still full timing. Well guess that is it for tonight  Later all Ron Thelma and Eli

Elkhart, In

We left Shipshewanna this afternoon after walking the rest of the flea market. Bought a couple of more things. Later Tues we drove around a little of the country side and I took a few photos
I could could spend a week up here. There is some Mennonites up here. I talked to our waitress at a restaurant and she was Mennonite.  Here is another photo

When I stopped to take this picture he raised his head so I could get a good shot of him
Tonight we are parked at a campground behind what used to be Hart City RV. The bays are being used by a repair and collision service. Full hookups for 25. It sure is dark here though. No night lites at all.  Tomorrow we are going to a RV show at the RV Hall Of Fame Museum. That is it for tonight  Later all Ron Thelma and Eli

We are now in Shipshe. Tomorrow we will go to the flea market. We have made a list of what we want. Not sure if we will get it all. We left the fairgrounds in Greentown around 10 this morning Stopped at a McDonald's. Eli got his McDouble. It has been a while since he got one. He only gets it when we are traveling with the trailer. Some friends that are camping in Fort Wayne are coming up They will call when they get here. We are camped at the Flea market campground. Makes it nice walk across the road and you are there. We had a successful  campout. 39 units and 4 second families. Things went good. But I wouldn't want to do it again. Lot of work  Well that is it for tonight  Maybe I can get a picture of some  Amish tomorrow Lot of them around here.  Later  all Ron Thelma and Eli
