Yesterday was a busy day for us, starting early and ending late. And we’re looking at a lot more of them before we’re done.
I spent several hours printing out mailing labels, and Miss Terry was slapping them on envelopes as fast as they came out of the printer. We use Stamps.com to print our postage, which saves us from standing in line at the post office, but the darned program can be downright cantankerous at times, and yesterday was one of those times.
It started out not printing the return addresses on the labels, and I spent an hour or so trying to get that problem fixed, even going so far as to uninstall it from my computer and reinstall it all over again. Still no luck. We finally gave up and resorted to rubber stamping the return address on each envelope. With that behind us the program came up with a new quirk – we print six labels up on a sheet, and suddenly it started skipping one label on each sheet. And it wasn’t the same one over and over again, it was a different label each time. Maybe the top right one time around, the bottom left next time, or center right on the third try. Very frustrating.
About noon, Tom and Barbara Westerfield arrived in their Monaco motorhome, and an hour or so later, Greg and Jan White’s American Eagle pulled in. Yes, the gang’s all here! And we wasted no time putting them to work.
Barbara tried to help figure out the postage software problem, with no success, and then turned her efforts to helping Terry with a couple of issues she was having with rally lists and printouts.
About 5 p.m. we all went out to Famous Dave’s for dinner, and spent most of the time getting caught up since we were last all together, and talking about everything we need to do before the rally starts.
Back home again, Greg came over and installed a new external WiFi receiver in my Dell desktop. Now I can get online with either the 3G air card or the 4G MiFi. That is, assuming of course, that the MiFi ever works. Not since the Great White Father’s representatives hoodwinked the Indians into giving up their lands have so many people been lied to and misled like Verizon’s reps have in pushing this shoddy equipment and service on the public.

I appreciate all of you who have bought the books, left reviews, and told your friends about them. I guess if I ever get too old to travel by RV, I can retire to the Florida Keys and write more books. I could be sort of a pudgy, non-drinking, less talented Hemingway.
