Mother Nature..Make Up Your Damn Mind

Well, it has been awhile since we last talked. We are the same couple, stumbling, fumbling along in the world of RV'ing and camping. It seems like if there are any mistakes that can possibly be made, we do them and EXCELL very well. If we are anything, we are consistant. Before, I go any further, I will tell you this fast saturday was our anniversary..26 years...been great years and I Love Pat to death. We seem to be getting more organized each trip, just manage to make new blunders. Pat made reservations and we had a great location, no incidenses, boom we are there and we unhook...the levelest spot we have ever had. We put down our mat, unload our brand new lounge chairs, even get Maggie the dog staked out, hook up the electricity, THEN BOOM....we hook up the water and nothing happens inside, faucets don't work, toliet don't flush....and water just started leaking out underneath, not inside in the floor thank god, just underneath. WELL, we turned the water off and did the bottled water thing all weekend. WELL, that wasn't too bad. We just acted lazy all day, gave our new recliners a good work out and tried our new alcohol beverage of choice. You would think at our age, we are not easily impressed by some new product....however the new drinks you find at the checkstand area in Walmart with the alcohol added..you just freeze, squeeze, and boom a slushy strawberry marguaritta. I'll be the first to admit they definitely take the edge off your day. Saturday, we went into the town of Whitney...had a great anniversary meal at a restaurant I hadn't been to before, but Pat had. Very, very good food topped off with a ice cream shop across the street..at which we probably made a new friend...plus enjoyed some BLUE BELL!!!! It was a very nice day and we topped it off with some television. The weather was great, it got up to 90 and had cooled down and was a little breezy, so we put our canapy up and turned off the air and opened all the windows and fell into a deep comfortable sleep. YEAH RIGHT....the wind blew, the temperature dropped bigtime..and the next thing we knew it was in the 40's. We started closing windows, piling under covers and just trying to keep warm. OH, DID I MENTION..we still haven't gotten the propane checked out, so the heat wasn't an option. The poor people camping in tents were pouring out early all morning. We put on all the layers we could, but didn't have anything but shorts. I did have the sense the pack a light golf pullover and my TEXAS RANGER longjohn top. We got everything hooked up and got the heck out of Dodge. We made it home without incident, unhooked and then I had a do alittle work for my job getting ready to start a new week. We both bragged about how good Maggie was this weekend and how so well behaved she was. I went to work...Pat went shopping at Walmart and MAGGIE ate a whole loaf of bread. OH WELL...We had fun....so now you know WHAT HE SAID....SEE WHAT SHE SAID!!!!!!!!

WHERE do you go camping??? Our parks aren't even open until the end of April and our trailer is still buried in snow! Jealous? Who me? Sigh...
Happy camping!
