The Best Laid Plans, Most Sites Empty and The Illinois Bunch

Rantoul, IL.

57 deg. clear, no wind.

Forecast = Sunny. Highs in the mid 80s. Light southeast winds.

Well, the best laid plans .   . . . . . . .  Jim was going to go to Farm & Fleet yesterday morning, but after he was up for awhile, he got a stomach ache and spent most of the morning close to my "little room".  : O

Don't really know what caused it, but he didn't feel good for most of the day so the only thing that got done was to go to the Post Office to get mail in the afternoon and stop at the grocery store for bread and a few essentials. He seems to be feeling better this morning so maybe he can get down to Farm & Fleet this morning.

Most of the sites are empty here at the CG. There were 4 Motor Homes across the street from me but now they have left in the last few days. Right now there are Motor Homes on each side of me, but the folks on my left are gone most of the time and the ones on my right don't seems to want to be very friendly. Oh there are a few RVs down at the other end of the park but I never see much movement down there.

If the weather holds, there should be some RVs coming in for the weekend though. and then of course there's the Farm Show starting on the 25th and then Labor Day right behind it, so maybe I should enjoy this quiet time. ; )

Oh, I've found out that some friends of Jim and Linda's are coming to the CG on the 7th of September. Myrddin always called them the "Illinois Bunch" because they're all from Illinois and they all go down to a CG in Florida for a good part of the winter. 2 of the 3 couples have said they are coming on the 7th, but we're still waiting to hear if the 3rd couple can make it then or not.

I hope so. I'd sure like to meet all of them. : ) 

Did you know that it was on this date in 1977 that Elvis Presley died?
