It's always amazing how busy we can be without working...Last week was full of people leaving, including John & his dad, his sister & bro-in-law and his parents. Fortunately they missed the storms (for the most part) and arrived safely in Iowa on Friday. Others who have left here recently were not so lucky. Apparently some are stranded in the Dakotas and don't anticipate moving on to Canada until tomorrow at the earliest. There were reports last night that one couple couldn't even get to a restaurant. Hmmm....eating solely from motel vending machines probably isn't as much fun as I would have thought.
Back in Iowa, John's dad is busy visiting doctors to try to find out why he's having so much trouble breathing and John is visiting some friends while he's there. He'll fly back down here later today - yeah!
I've kept busy washing the RV & car, running errands, and generally getting everything ready to hit the road again. Oh, yeah - and I learned to read electric meters one day and enjoyed a visit the next day from a high school classmate and her father. Jean and I hadn't seen each other for about 20 years and had a fun time catching up again (indoors since it was 102 degrees here in the valley that day!).
So, today's project is reorganizing the bay doors - yippee..... And, on Thursday we'll become nomads again as we head for New Mexico. This is the first time since we started full-timing that we have a pretty good block of time to explore one of our 50 states. Should be fun!
