Back to school...

At 7:30am the sky was steely gray, and the wind was gusting at 20mph.  I checked the weather report and it foretold 50% chance of rain sometime Sunday.  After a couple of hours we decided to lower the patio awning, and I am glad we did as it stayed windy all day long and into the evening.

Our neighbors to our immediate right, Jim and Jackie, invited us on Thursday to join them and some other Campers for Brunch at the Campbellsville University Dining Hall.  I wrote previously about the great price of $7 per person for their Brunch.  Well, that is the price for any of their meals, and if you buy a booklet of ten meals the price goes down to $5.75 per meal.  Jim is retired Airforce, and Jackie is a retired Dean of Students at a Tennessee college (I did not catch the name), and she also has a PhD.    We are finding that this Nomadic crowd of full time RVers is a very diverse group of people from all walks of life.  We met them around 11:15am, and also got to meet Bobby and Doris, their friends.  Bobby is also retired Airforce.  There were a number of other Campers who joined us...Deborah and Marti, Mary Lloyd, and several others whose names escape me now.  Frankly, I'm amazed I remembered that many names.  It seems to take me at least two times, if not three, after meeting someone new for their name to penetrate my thick skull.  The food was just as good as the company, and we will probably buy a book of tickets and eat a few more meals there.  If nothing else, it is a nice gathering place for us Camper Force folk to get to know each other outside of our jobs.

After a very pleasant Brunch TLE and I headed out to the liquor store just over the county line to restock for the next two weeks.  After that TLE drove me home, and dropped me off while she went to do grocery shopping so I could FINISH the taxes, FINALLY!  When she arrived home a couple of hours later I was nearing the finish line, and with her help I scanned a few documents, and printed out a bunch of 1099's, and other documentation to attach to our return.  This year we actually get money back from the Fed's, and the People's Republic of California.

As if to signify a watershed moment the skies finally opened up and the 50% chance of rain became 100%.  The rain continued on and off, sometimes quite heavily, until we went to bed around midnight.  In the interim I settled in to watch NFL football....I enjoyed seeing the Seahawks edge by New England by 1 point, and the Giants wiping the floor with the 49ers.  The Cowboys did what they do so well.....lost a game on the last play of the game.  And for the finale the Packers annihilated the Texas in the evening game.....nice to see the Packers of old show up again.

Tomorrow is supposed to be a sunny day, and if that comes true we will most likely take a bike ride out to Green River Lake, a Corp of Engineers designed and built reservoir which is also a State Park with a nice RV Park.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
