Company Coming (I Hope)

Rantoul, IL.

78 deg. mostly cloudy, SW wind @ 8 mph.

Forecast = Partly sunny with a 40 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. Highs in the upper 80s. Light northwest winds.

Jim called Roland and Louise, (some of their RVing friends), yesterday morning, just to touch bases and find out how they were doing. To his surprise, he found out that they were in Indiana and headed this way!

From what I can gather, (and you probably know this already), Roland and Louise have been very good friends of Jim and Linda's for almost as long as they have been full-timing. They met at a CG down in Florida, hit it off and have been best of friends ever since. They have a Winnebago Journey named Big Herb and he was very good friends with Myrddin. Now they're bringing him here to Rantoul to meet me. : )

Wow!!! I'm finally going to meet some of Jim and Linda's friends and their RV!!! ; )

There's only one thing that could cause a glitch here. : (   A lady that they call Grandma Foster who lives in North Carolina, (where Roland and Louise have a house), is very sick and in the hospital. If she gets worse they will have to change their plans and head back there instead of coming here.

I hope she gets well and they can come to visit us.

After lunch, Jim and Linda went over to the County Market Grocery Store. They were going anyway, but once they found out that Roland and Louise may be coming, they bought some other items to have for meals while they are here.

After they returned and got the groceries put away, both of them took naps. 

Oh, I almost forgot!! Remember I was telling you that they were going to shut off the electricity to the CG to repair the damage from the plane crash? Well they did, but it was no big deal. It was only off for about 1/2 an hour.

Not much happened the rest of the day, it was just to hot and muggy to do much outside. And, by the forecast, there's no relief in the near future. : (

Did you know that the warmest temperature ever recorded on Antarctica was 3 degrees F ?
