Here at the Prairie Pines Campground in Rantoul, I have wi-fi and it's pretty fast, so today, I'm going to bore some of you with photos from the reunion that I wasn't able to post earlier because of slow Internet connections. As always, you can click on the photo to enlarge it to see details or the text that Jim has added.
These first to photos are of the other house on the lake where Glenn and his family stayed.
It too had a nice deck on the back, facing the lake.
Laura and her girls who flew up from Florida to come to the reunion
Linda's sister, Nancy and David who drove up from the South side of Chicago.
Nancy's son Aaron and his family who live close to Nancy
Linda's Brother Glenn and his wife Jeanette who drove down from River Falls, WI.
Glenn and Jeanette's son Ed and his family who live in River Falls
Glenn and Jeanette's daughter Mary and her family who also live in River Falls.
Below are a couple other photos that Jim took of people just sitting around and visiting.
Well, I hope I didn't bore you too much, but I really wanted to post these photos so that those who are interested, could see them.
Jim went out an hooked me up to the sewer yesterday morning because Linda said that she wanted to get started on the laundry. After that, he went over and talked to Louise for awhile before coming back here.
While he was gone, Linda put in a load of laundry and worked on justifying 2 bank statements. : (
Later, Jim brought some stuff in from my basement compartments for Linda and then walked down to the other end of the park and talked to a man named Ron for awhile. Jim had met Ron a few years ago but didn't really get to know him until last year when I was parked in the site right next to them when Jim and Linda first brought me here.
Ron and his wife Marilyn, work down in Texas during the winter and then come up here to visit family and friends during the summer. They'll be here until about the middle of September.
For awhile it looked like we were going to get some rain yesterday afternoon, but it just fizzled out and all we got were a few drops. (The same thing happened in the evening.) : ( The weather people on TV are still forecasting a chance of rain, but I wouldn't bet a quart of diesel that any will come.
Not much planned today. There's a letter that needs to be mailed and Jim wants to go to the new Ace Hardware Store here in Rantoul, to get a new filter for my Air Conditioner, but other than that, nothing.
Now, I am betting that quart of diesel that he'll find a lot to look at and spend quite a bit of time at Ace. ; )
A Point to Ponder : Do sore thumbs really stick out?
