Getting Ready To Travel, Dave And Dee Dee Stop By and An e-mail From Judy

Rantoul, IL.

57 deg. overcast, E. wind @ 7 mph.

Forecast = Chance of showers and thunderstorms in the morning... then showers and thunderstorms likely in the afternoon. Highs in the lower 70s. Southeast winds 10 to 15 mph. Chance of precipitation 70 percent.

Because the weather gurus were forecasting rain for today, and the plan is to leave here tomorrow, Jim and Linda tried to get most of the things done where they had to be outside and I think they were pretty successful.

The first thing that Linda did was to do another load of laundry, then she and Jim took CLT and headed to Walgreen's to get another prescription for Jim filled. From there they headed to the grocery store to pick up some things that they were out of. After they returned and had the groceries put away, Jim got busy outside, draining and flushing my tanks, putting a little more water in my fresh water tank and then putting away all the hoses.

Today, they'll concentrate on the inside of me. There's not a real lot to do, but they surely don't want to leave everything for tomorrow morning. : (

Dave and Dee Dee stopped by yesterday!! While they were here with the "Illinois Bunch" last week, he found out that I needed a converter box for my outside TV. Well, he had one that he wasn't using and being that he and Dee Dee were heading up to Kankakee yesterday, they stopped by and dropped it off.

That was sure nice of them. I don't expect that Jim and Linda will be watching that TV very much, but it will be nice to be able to use it if they want to. ; )

One more thing. Judy sent Jim and e-mail last night, (that he didn't find until this morning). In it she was wondering if he and Linda would have a little time today as she was thinking about driving down here in her car for a short visit?

Well Judy, Jim, Linda and I would love to have you come down for a visit. That way, I'd get to meet you and Jim and Linda would get to see you again. : )  I'm sure Jim will be sending you an e-mail as soon as I'm done with this blog post.

Did you know that September is "National Mushroom Month"?

Thanks Dave and Dee Dee!!!! : )

Oh, still another thing. I don't think he wants me to say anything, but Linda said that I should mention that today is Jim's birthday!

Happy Birthday, Jim. ; )
