Rantoul, IL.

57 deg. clear, SE wind @ 4 mph.

Forecast = Increasing clouds. Highs in the lower 80s. Southeast winds 5 to 10 mph.

Awwww!!! Mike and Terri decided that they needed to head up to Northern Illinois so that they would have a chance of getting a site in a State Park up there before the "Weekend Warriors" came in. ; ) So, after getting everything ready to travel and coming over to say good-bye with h and h, (hugs and handshakes),  they left here around 11:00.

Here's a picture of their rig parked in the site next to me.

While Jim and Linda were having a great time visiting with Mike and Terri, I had a great visit with their Excel 5th wheel and I'm sure if we had a little more time together, we'd become very good friends.

Oh, and just before they left, Mike said that they may be coming back through this area after they spend some time up North. He said that if they do, they'll stop by again,  if we're still in the area. Mike's plans are written in pencil like Jim's though, so he was very unsure if they be coming back this way. : )

This afternoon, Jim and Linda took CLT and went to an Office Depot down in Champaign. Jim wanted to get a new lap desk to use with this computer, (the old one cracked), some printer ink cartridges and some printer paper.

He found everything he needed.

Then before coming back here, they stopped at a Steak & Shake Restaurant for dinner.

Since there wasn't anything on TV that they wanted to watch, the evening was spent reading, doing Sudoku Puzzles, playing with the computers, and trip planning.

Did you know that today is "Kool-Aid Day"?
