Thank You All

It seems my little story about our empty nest neighbor at the hotel was an exciting read to a lot of you.  Man, you should have been there.  It was even more exciting in person.  Those underwear are long gone!  Thank you all for the nice words……

People said that the flags weren’t flown at half mast the other day on nine eleven in the pictures I took.  Those pictures were taken across the country.  I enjoy taking pictures of Old Glory while traveling.

We drove the Beast up to Hopkins, MI Saturday.  We had dinner with one our instructors and and his wife, George & Valarie.  We try to have dinners with our instructors because we like to eat out and that gives us a reason.  It was a pleasant trip up and back. 

We got back to Camp Newmar and our little Green Man was still holding our spot along with five million of the school’s cones.  We talked Larry & Marilyn to come down and camp in the S.O.B. (some other brand) campground here. It’s one block from us and it’s free. They got water & electric on concrete.  Some are on gravel.  Anyhow they arrived about 3 or so.  We went over for four o’clock then to dinner.  Dinner – the regular restaurants were closed due to Sunday and nine eleven. We ended up at the KFC/Taco Bell for dinner. 

Before all that we had A LOT of motorcycles go by us at the Newmar Campground.  I mean a lot.  That reminded me of the time Carol & I got to lead a Toys For Tot Run to Baltimore from Ellicott City in December on our Full Dresser Red Harley (Rudolph the Reindeer). There was thunder going thru Baltimore that day. Now that was cool.  That was several hundred Harleys going thru Baltimore with a police escort and with us leading.  Now that was exciting. Anyhow this very very large motorcycle run was in conjunction with a nine eleven event down town here and other towns and this heard of motorcycles rode thru.

Here’s some favorite pics.DSC_0004

I started this blog early today (4 AM) and my goal is not to get into any trouble today. We’re going into public later today and it will be tempting and a challenge.

Today (Tuesday) which is really yesterday (Monday) is when I wrote part of this. You think that is confusing to read this try to write it.  Anyhow, we went to the RV Hall Of Fame later.  It’s really an outstanding must see in Elkhart. We got a special tour by Al Hesselbart who is the historian for it.DSC_0011DSC_0002 DSC_0004 DSC_0005 DSC_0006 DSC_0007 DSC_0008 DSC_0009 DSC_0010 

Then we went to a local Chinese buffet for dinner.  That’s Al on the left.  Carol & I met Nick & Terry (Gypsy Journal) , Greg & Jan, Marilyn & Larry (Larry out of pic).  We talked before we ate and afterwards.  We told old and new stories.  It was a great time.  This is one of the great things about RVing.  That is we won’t see these people for awhile now….YEA!!!! just joking of course.DSC_0012

Tomorrow should be our last day and we were told only a half day.  I say that would be rare for them.  I’m suppose to see “the boss”  about the roof.

See ya……….
