Those four words above, the title to today’s blog, they are the reason I can never run for any kind of elected office. I mean, after all, have you ever heard any politician ever say those words? I spent a career in the newspaper business and interviewed everybody from candidates for small town city councils to presidential hopefuls, and I never did!
In yesterday’s blog I said that we were going to have a play day, I just didn’t know what we were going to do. As it turned out, I lied. We didn’t do a darn thing. Well at least none of the things we had talked about doing.
We got up and went through the usual routine of answering emails and things like that, and then kept asking each other, “What do you want to go do?” And since neither one of us could think of anything and we just weren’t feeling all that energetic, we wound up staying home instead.
Terry put the finishing touches on her new huck lace shawl and she was very pleased with the way it came out. Here is a picture of her with the shawl, and a close-up of the pattern. I think it’s really pretty, how about you?
As for me, it became another writing day and I got in a little over 4500 more words on my new book, which brings me up to about 35,000 words. Most of my Big Lake novels run somewhere between 72,000 and 75,000 words, so I’m real close to the halfway point.
About 6 PM we ran a couple of errands, stopping at Dollar Tree so Terry could buy some Awesome cleaner, and then to WalMart. When we were done there we went to the Culver’s right across the parking lot. Culver’s is our favorite fast food restaurant in the whole country and you just can’t beat their delicious cheddar butter burgers.
When we got back to the campground, blog reader Carolyn Welch stopped by to visit for a few minutes and to admire some of Terry’s weaving creations. Carolyn and her husband Greg are experienced RVers and brand new fulltimers.
I’ve said many times that RVng is one of the safest lifestyles one can imagine, and that you have a lot more to worry about when you’re on the road than when you are in a campsite. This video shows just how quickly things can go wrong, and also just how lucky one motorhome driver was.
