Favorite Holiday. A Little Rain and Watching

Rantoul, IL.

55 deg. scattered clouds, NW wind @ 10 mph.

Forecast = Partly sunny. Highs in the upper 60s. North winds 10 to 15 mph.

Happy Labor Day!!!!!

Today is Jim's favorite Holiday. You see, this is the last holiday of the summer and the last "Hurrah" for all the weekend campers.  After this holiday, the state, county and COE parks will be easier to get into on the weekends, and in fact, almost all campgrounds, including National Parks, will be much less crowded and quieter.

Now, of course this doesn't hold true for the RV parks and campgrounds in the Southern states where all the "Snowbirds" go with their RVs for the winter. ; ) 

They all fill up. : (

It sprinkled off and on all morning yesterday so Jim pretty much stayed inside. He did go out between sprinkles though to drain my holding tanks as they were getting really full and all RVers know that you don't want "overfull" tanks. : (


Jim was outside some during the afternoon, talking to the neighbors and doing "stuff". Linda was busy all day, working on her embroidery project, playing with the computer, reading and taking a little nap.  Then for dinner, Jim cooked a steak on the grill, that he and Linda shared, while Linda cooked vegetables on my stove.

The evening was spent watching the PBS channel on TV.

Today, I'm going to watch most all the RVers here at the CG pack up and head for home. It can be really fun to watch and you soon know which RVers are new to RVing and which ones have been doing it for awhile. The inexperienced ones usually don't have any kind of routine and jump back and forth from one task to another in no special order.

And, I'm sure at least one RV will go out of the CG with it's TV antenna still up. : O

If you're traveling today, please be careful. There will be a lot of people in a hurry to get home after celebrating this Holiday.

Did you know that Congress passed a bill to establish Labor Day as a federal holiday in 1894? President Grover Cleveland signed the bill soon afterward, designating the first Monday in September as Labor Day.
