Today officially starts the RV Driving School Get Together. Carol & I have been doing this for 6 great years. I think this has been the best weather we have ever had over all. One year we almost got washed away because of the real bad thunder/rain/wind storms here. It’s something to see a monsoon rain and water running across a desert in an RV in the middle of no where. It got a little scary that year and we still managed to have fun. It’s the attitude that wasn’t discouraged.
We pass the torch on to George & Valerie and wish them well. Oh, we’ve told everybody next year they would be preparing steaks, porterhouse of course! Tell your friends.
Carol & I went into town before 9 AM today. I wanted to get some solar lights at K & B Tools. K & B has a lot of good “Stuff”. After Mickey D’s we parked right in front of K & B before 9 AM. I got the lights and then we went to the laundry mat. I dropped Carol off and I went to the big tent. Here’s Denny & Susie working it. It wasn’t crowed so I got to walk around and meet some fellow vendor friends. About 10 AM I decided it was time to go to the Post Office and start to wait. They hand out General Delivery starting at 11 AM. I got there about 10:15 and was mentally prepared to wait. They are so s - - - l - - - - o - - - - w - - - - ! After 10:30 or so it becomes an 1 1/2 hour wait. I was 4th in line. I walked out about 11:10 with mail in hand. I went and got Carol and we went back to the Beast.
We had a pretty big social hour and then a pit fire later that night. We went out to diner with Gary and Mary, fellow Loosey Gosey Gang members from our Alaska trip this past summer. We went to a Mexican restaurant. I can’t talk Spanish or read their menu’s even though they are in English. It just don’t click in the brain housing for me when it comes to Mexican food. I need a child’s menu that is descriptive. I ordered a mini samboro (?) with ground beef and crossed my fingers. It came and they must have thought I was a rabbit. There was a lot of lettuce and I never did find the ground beef. It reminded me of a taco salad with no sidewalls or beef. It was outstanding if you are a vegetarian.
Another good day. Damn wind picked up again. The weatherman changes his report as the weather changes so he’s never wrong. Just a little off on the timing. Tomorrow is predicted to be in the 70’s with no wind or clouds….hope so.
The pot luck/chili cook off will start about 3:30. Hope I don’t see those mega food trays. Come on folks let’s don’t go down that road. I’m expecting about 75 or so people again this year. We will see…. I got to go start my chili – it’s now 6:30 AM.
