Getting to know other RVers is one of the best parts of this lifestyle!
For the last few days, Bruce and Linda Fay have been parked next to us at Elkhart Campground in their nice looking older Itasca Sunrise motorhome. Yesterday before they left to go back home to Michigan, they stopped over to say goodbye. Bruce and Linda were at our recent Gypsy Gathering rally in Celina, Ohio, but we were so busy there that we didn’t really have time to talk, so it was nice to have a few minutes to visit.
Later in the afternoon, Greg White invited us to go to dinner with he and his wife Jan, to celebrate Jan’s birthday. We first met Greg and Jan at one of our rallies in Arizona, where Greg managed to get his diesel pusher stuck pulling out of the Casa Grande Fairgrounds, and I teased him in the blog about it. Greg has a great sense of humor, and took it in stride.
They were also at our rally in Celina, and then came back here to Elkhart. We have enjoyed getting to know them better in the last couple of weeks, and Greg has helped me out with several projects. In fact, today we have a couple more planned that I know I could not tackle on my own.
On the topic of rallies, I have added an Early Bird Registration link to our Arizona Gypsy Gathering rally in Yuma March 8-12. Originally it was my understanding that because the fairgrounds are having a Good Sam rally just before our event, we would not be able to have our regular early bird arrival. But I talked to the folks at the fairgrounds Friday, and they tell me the Good Sam group will be leaving the fairgrounds on Sunday, March 7. Early birds coming in for our rally can arrive anytime after noon on the 7th. If you have been to one of our rallies before, you know how much fun they are, and if you haven’t had the chance yet, I hope you’ll join us in Yuma.
Hardworking Miss Terry finally finished all of the mailing and the new issue is on its way to subscribers all over the country. It’s always a relief when the last envelopes get to the post office and we can breathe a big sigh of relief until next time around.
A couple of our readers e-mailed me during the weekend to give me their winter addresses. Unfortunately, the papers were already stuffed into envelopes and in the system, so I was not able to pull them out and change the addresses. If your paper does not get forwarded to you, please let me know. And if you are getting ready to head for your favorite snowbird roost, be sure to let us know your winter address for next issue.
While Miss Terry was working hard on the mailing, Bad Nick posted a new Bad Nick Blog called AT&T Salutes Vets With One Finger. Check it out and leave a comment.
Thought For The Day – People always talk about the importance of cleaning their homes but they rarely talk about cleaning their minds and souls. What unwanted stuff are you carrying within you?
