A Lot Accomplished

It rained hard here at Elkhart Campground early Tuesday morning, the sound of the rain pounding on the roof of our motorhome waking us up. But by 10 AM or so it had stopped and we had cloudy skies overhead.

After talking a little bit about scuba diving when she visited us the other day, Bonnie Kappler stopped as they were leaving the campground headed for their next destination to drop off a couple of DVDs for Terry about diving. How nice is that?

Except for taking a break for dinner, I spent most of the day working on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal and got a lot accomplished. By the end of the day I had 12 of the 44 pages finished. I’ll be back at it again today and I hope to have it done sometime this weekend.

I also took the time to call the VA clinic in Goshen to get the ball rolling on the tests I still need to have done. The person I talked to said they could handle most of it there, and what they couldn’t handle they may be able to farm out to local healthcare providers. But there’s a chance we will have to make a run to another facility down in Fort Wayne sometime in the next few weeks for another CT scan. Things have to be coordinated between my primary care provider at the VA hospital in Tucson and the folks in Goshen, so I don’t know when that will happen yet.

As I said before, the campground is really busy this year, and all day long there were RVs coming and going. Some were arriving for a rally that starts soon, and others were folks who are here to stay for a day or two, or longer. At one point I watched some folks with a motorhome trying to get situated into a pull-through site, and it took three attempts for them just to pull into the site. Then they jostled back and forth for a while before pulling out, driving away, and then coming back and pulling through the site again to repeat the process. I know we all have to start at some point and we’ve all been newbies at one time or another, but if you have to back up two or three times just to pull into a site, it might be time to call the RV Driving School and get a lesson. I couldn’t help wondering what it’s like when they pull up to a fuel island.

We needed to restock our shelves so during the afternoon Miss Terry made a run to the nearby Martin’s grocery store and came back with all kinds of goodies that should ward off hunger for a day or two.

The weatherman says we can expect more rain and possibly some severe thunderstorms in the next two days. No problem, we’ve got a lot to do here at home to keep us busy. I will be working on the new issue of the paper and Miss Terry will be proofing things as I go. She is also eager to get started on another weaving project and she will be winding a warp in preparation for it. Between all of that, and the groceries she just bought, it doesn’t look like we will die from starvation or boredom anytime soon.

Thought For The Day – Relationships are like glass. Sometimes it’s better to leave them broken than to hurt yourself putting it back together.
