Thanks, A Very Nice Visit and One More Day?

Rantoul, IL.

65 deg. overcast, light rain, SW wind @ 7 mph.

Forecast = Decreasing clouds. Chance of showers in the morning... then a slight chance of showers in the afternoon. Highs in the lower 70s. West winds 5 to 10 mph. Chance of precipitation 50 percent.

First of all, Jim wants to thank everyone who wished him a happy birthday yesterday. All the wishes helped make yesterday very special. ; )

Jeff, (Jim's Son), called from Oregon yesterday morning and they talked for quite a while. He's going through some changes with his work out there and besides calling Jim to wish him a happy birthday, Jim says he thinks he wanted to talk about the job thing too.

Judy was able to make it down here yesterday morning. She pulled up in front of me a little after 11:00. Once she came inside and relaxed a little, Jim gave her the "tour" and I think she liked me a lot, cause she gave me some very nice compliments. : )

After talking for awhile, it was decided that they would all head over to Pizza Hut for lunch. After a lot of talking and a little eating, Judy left from there to head back to her MH and Jim and Linda came back here. (She had to get back because she had left Emma in the MH while she came down here). It wasn't a long visit, but a very enjoyable one, and I got to meet Judy!

I really liked her and am looking forward to meeting her MH one of these days. : )

While they were at the Pizza Hut, Greg called and said he could come here to the CG at about 2:30 to install that extension cable on the little wi-fi antenna and answer any other questions that Jim and Linda may have about the new computer or the operating system.

Jim and Linda had made a list of things to ask him so after he came and installed the cable, he answered their questions and made some changes that affected how a few of the programs operated.

The rest of the day was spent inside of me because it was raining.

I'm pretty much ready to travel, but I'm not sure we'll be leaving here today. Roland, (Jim and Linda's friend who lives in North Carolina and who we were going to stop and see on the way out to the East Coast), called to wish Jim a happy birthday and also tell Jim and Linda that he and Louise were not going to be there by the time we got to their area. : (  They work with the "Nomads" organization and have signed up to do some volunteer work at that time.

I was looking forward to seeing Big Herb again and I know Jim and Linda were looking forward to seeing Roland and Louise again, but it's just not going to happen on this trip. : ( 

Anyway, because we won't be stopping at their house on the way, we'll have some extra time. So, if Jim can change an appointment that he made at a place down in Evansville, IN., we'll stay here one more day and I won't have to travel in this rain we're having and that is supposed to last most of the day, (especially over in Indiana).

He'll call them after 8:00 and then the decision will be made as to weather we'll stay here one more day or not.

Did you know that about 3 billion pizzas are sold each year in the U.S?
