So Long For Now and Safe Travels, Doug

Rantoul, IL

72 deg. scattered clouds, no wind.

Forecast = Patchy fog early in the morning. Partly sunny with a 50 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. Highs in the upper 80s. West winds 5 to 10 mph.

This is not what I like to see, but I know that Big Herb had to leave to  take Roland and Louise back to North Carolina. 

Yep, it was kind of sad seeing my new friend heading out of the CG, but the way it sounds I may be stopping by his place this fall. ; )

Before they left, Jim did manage to get this picture of Roland and Louise standing in front of Big Herb.

Thursday, Roland and Jim went to the store to buy some steaks to cook for dinner and then on the way back here, they stopped by the farmer who is selling sweet corn along the street. It's been so hot and dry back in NC that the sweet corn there is not even good to eat, so Roland is going to try to get some Illinois sweet corn back there for them and their son and his family to eat. (He bought 2 dozen ears).

For dinner, Thursday night, Jim cooked the steaks that Roland bought, Linda prepared some green beans and bacon, and Louise brought a blueberry desert.

Of course, I can't tell you how it tasted, but it sure smelled good. ; )

After dinner, Linda and Louise talked for awhile and Jim and Roland sat outside and talked until dark.

This morning, Roland and Louise were up early getting ready to leave. Roland did find time to come over to my site and have a cup of coffee though, and then he and Louise came back over here and talked for about 1/2 an hour just before they left. Then after hugs, they got into Big Herb and headed down the road. : (

After they left Jim and Linda came inside of me for awhile and then Jim went out and started to reorganize my basement compartments. He made pretty good progress and at one time, had  the whole patio area and picnic table setting full of totes and boxes before putting it all back into my bays the way he wanted it.

Oh, and on a very sad note, Jim and Linda's RVing friend Doug passed away yesterday morning after fighting cancer for many years. Jim and Linda want to wish JoAnn and the rest of Doug's family their condolences.

Safe travels Doug,
