Thanksgiving, to the start of Advent!

There are still a few Monarch stragglers…and I wonder each time I notice one, “Will they miss the migration and be too late?!”  I sure hope not! The beach continues to be our escape from the RV park.  And we both have to say this has been our best Fall here in Alabama yet. Mr….

It’s December….still in (Gulf Shores, AL)

We watch the temps at home in IL and IN!  And I read the blog post reporting temps in ND from dear Jane (23 below, minus wind chill)! And now I’m sitting here trying to remember being frigid cold, wrapped up, cashmere and wool socks!  It’s really very ,VERY ODD to me this year! You…

Another day beach side… (Alabama)

After the usual daily runs and the weather forecast in the 7¥0s…Mr. Jer and I had a shared opinion = beach day! Shared, as in look and see…a darling, young at heart pair of  skimmers.  Kind of wished in the back of my mind…I want to try a WET SUIT in the warm waters!!! THEY…

BEACH, beach, beach…. (Alabama)

We changed up our beach visit today…today we set in for the sunset route! Stopping at Rouse’s NOLA Cajun market for snacks and a chilled bottle of wine!! We keep the beach gear at our ready…a packed back seat! Our favorite beach entry… Palm trees in a mild breeze, 3:30 pm, temp 66… Our landing…sweatshirts…

DAY 10 (Alabama)

Knock, knock to the warranty lady…any calls back from Keystone as when they can get their hands on the part we need?  “Let me call them!”  We listen in, seems a new contact found one IN stock….he’s adding a rush and it will ship today.  Yep, persistence is key today!! The flip side….a home cooked…

DAY 9 (Alabama)

Might as well have some fun with my posts…we could be here a long time in the RV dealer’s lot. Recap:  Water issue fixed, slide now has issues. Not quite falling off the face of the earth, but……it’s very sick. Manufacturer suggests BEESWAX, dealer fought the manufacturer, promises made, a plan of attack in motion,…

Off to the DEALER, we need a FIX! (Mississippi)

If you didn’t catch the last post, we turned east instead of west…something is WET, smelly, and dripping. Woke Sunday morning, bright and early, to catch one last look of the Arkansas River at Toad Suck COE in Conway, AR! The fog is not so thick….just a tint of it. Tried the alarm on my…

Life sucks at Toad Suck!

I know a strong statement but right about now, we wish we could just fly away! And weren’t parked in a DRY county!!! Let’s get down to the dirty details and then you can read about days in central Arkansas! We are contemplating our options, knowing it will change once we hit our appointment next…

Family Fun…continues to a closing soon! (Illinois)

First foremost…I took the slack this week and the invites weren’t working.  To those who pleaded, “please continue to open your stories…I love to ride along!” And for all those faithful who jumped the silly WordPress loops (which can be a nightmare) and you know who you are, we’re back to square one…my life is ONE BIG…

More family fun! (Illinois)

Camping along side Mr. Jer’s sister this week has made for making fun memories. They just joined the full time RV family. We were joined by our eldest teenage grandkids, Mason and Gracie.  Mas all ready to stay tent side! He pitched it…Gracie spread out the bedding!! Plenty of biking, fishing, Skippo and yummy eating…

Happy Spring and lots of family time! (Illinois)

Everywhere we look, signs of Spring! How long has it been since the Easter weekend gave us perfect weather?!  We’ve settled in again and everything is a buzz! The robin left her egg on the edge of the driftwood…oops! The monarch has come alive.  The purple martins are thick. Cardinals singing!  Grass is the greenest ever! The…
