Fantastic Weekend

We had an absolutely fantastic weekend. There were 20 units here from the camping club we belong to. We were able to spend time with them in between our host duties. Since most of the sites were occupied by our club, we didn't have many people needing help. Here's some of the group having breakfast Sunday morning. Did I mention this group likes to eat? :)
Saturday morning started out a bit foggy and cool. Once the sun came out it was a beautiful day with highs around 80 degrees. Yesterday the heat and humidity really set in. High of 89 degrees with a dewpoint of 69 percent. Our bodies are still in winter mode, so it was a bit much to cope with. I'm not complaining; I REALLY don't like winter. The rest of the week is supposed to stay hot and humid. Next weekend is supposed to cool off into the high 70's. That would make for an excellent Memorial Day weekend.

I did rent a canoe Saturday morning to a younger couple. As soon as she got in, the canoe tipped over and she was soaked, sweatshirt and all. The water is still cold. Ouch! I also rented a canoe for half the day to a grandfather and his 10 year old grandson. The grandson wanted to fish. They were back in 2 hours. I guess 10 years old don't have much of an attention span especially when the fish aren't biting :)

Yesterday we rented a canoe to a young man with some children. When they came back, the guy spent 20 minutes telling me his life story. I think I'm a pretty friendly person, but I really don't need to know everyone's life story. Some people just love to talk!

Kevin had a surprise for me this morning. He shaved off his mustache. When I met him 35 years ago, I convinced him to grow a mustache. He's had one ever since. The last few years it has been feeling more and more like a wire brush against my face. I've been asking him to shave it, but he didn't want to. Finally, he told me when we were fulltimers, he would do it. Well, he wouldn't consider us fulltimers until we had the check in hand from the house sale. That was Friday. When I reminded him of what he had said, he started waffling. I didn't push and this morning, surprise; no mustache! Guess what? I didn't notice. Oops! He looks great and no more wire brush :) He's rather picture shy, so no pictures. You'll have to take my word for it!

This afternoon, we're going to the library in town. They have free WiFi and I want to download an anti-virus program to the new laptop. Then I'll get back to trying to get it to work as a WiFi hotspot in our camper. Wish me luck. I know just enough about technology to make me dangerous :)


  1. We use a Hawking wifi dish antenna to connect to unsecured networks. been using it for almost 3 years and it's the best $80 ever spent. just bought the newer model HWDN1 which has more range and it should be delivered tomorrow. I recommend this to anybody who is going to fulltime.

  2. BTW, thanks to Kevin or Ruth for the tip on the WI-Fi antenna!

    But what I really wanted to say was that I have had a mustache since before I can remember... maybe late teens or early 20's. As I got older, it continued to get grayer. I originally started growing it to make me look older. Well, at 60 years old (that was nearly four years ago), I decided I looked old enough and off it came! Now I look at least 10 years younger! Most people think I'm in my early 50's!


We'd love to hear from you!
