Grrrrrrr!!!!! and We Had Company

Rantoul, IL.

54 deg. clear, NW wind @ 9 mph.

Forecast = Partly cloudy in the morning, then clear. High of 70F. Breezy. Winds from the NW at 15 to 20 mph.


It's beyond me how some people can get pleasure out of messing up someones computer!!!! I can even understand it a little if they're trying to get some information, but to just mess up someones computer for no reason??????

As you can probably tell by now, Jim's laptop computer had a virus/malware or whatever you want to call it, and it was messing everything up!!!!! Couldn't get onto some sites, got warnings that the computer was infected and got all kinds of error messages!!! : (

As soon as this started happening, Jim shut the computer down, got onto Linda's desktop and e-mailed Greg at GeekyGuys.  If you been following this blog for awhile, you already know that Jim and Linda have used Greg's services before. In fact last year, he built Linda's desktop computer for her and fixed a few problems with this laptop. Before that, he cleaned out a really nasty virus that Jim had on this laptop.

 He's really good at what he does and his fees are not out of line at all.

To make a long story shorter, Greg has this computer cleaned up and running like a top again, and I'm back to blogging!!! : )

So, what has been happening since I last posted on Labor Day?   Well, actually quite a bit!!

We've had more rain and some storms go through this area, There's been a couple local shopping trips made, but most important, is that we had company!!! : ) 

Here's a photo of their rig which was in a site a little up the street from me. Do any of you recognize it? Well, I won't keep you in suspense too long.

It belongs to Mike and Terri Young who have a blog called Forever Young.  

On Monday, (I think it was), Mike called and said that they would be coming through this area and was wondering if Jim and Linda would be around. He said that he knew it was short notice, but they would be here on Tuesday!!!.

Well, they didn't make it here on Tuesday because of a little problem, (I'll let Mike tell you about it on his blog), but they did make it here Wednesday. 

They weren't able to make it here until later in the afternoon, so instead of going out to eat someplace, They just ordered a couple Pizzas delivered instead. (That Mike paid for).  Thanks Mike!!!! : )

The pizza along with some chocolate cake that Linda got out of the freezer earlier, made for a very nice meal.

By the time Mike and Terri had their rig set up, came over here and talked and relaxed a little, the pizza arrived. Then they sat down inside of me to eat and catch up on what has been happening since we last saw them last summer.

As always, it was good conversation with very good friends. ; )

Mike and Terri had already had a long day, so about 9:00 they headed back to their RV.

They could only stay for one night because they needed to continue heading East for an appointment they have, so, Thursday morning, after h and h, (hugs and handshakes), they loaded up and continued heading East. : (

Both Jim and Linda said that the visit with Mike and Terri was way to short, but before they left they were already talking about meeting up again, maybe even sometime later on this year, over on the East Coast or down in Florida!! : )

That would be great!!!!! : )

As I stated at the beginning of this blog, we've had some more rain. If you  remember, it was extremely dry when we arrived here in July and the grass, (and almost everything else), was completely dry. Well, this first photo was taken back then, just after we got here.

This photo was taken Thursday from about the same spot.  A few inches of rain makes a big difference.

Yesterday, we had quite a bit of rain again when a cold front came through. The temperatures have been in the mid to upper 80's, but today they're forecasting a high of 70 degrees, and not near as humid.

That's good because there are 4 groups here in the CG for the weekend. Two of the groups are hear already and I think there may be another group here also. One group is an Airstream club and another is a Hi-Low Club.

Both of those clubs stand out because of their unique trailers.

Louise said that the CG is pretty much sold out for the weekend and I'm sure it is because there are already many more RV here than were here for the rainy Labor Day weekend.

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

Thanks for stopping by, Mike and Terri, it was really good to see you again!!!! : )
