Another Family Visit

Last Sunday Kevin’s sister Mary and her daughter’s family came for a visit. Our niece Terri is married to Rick and between them they have four children. We had a very nice visit. The kids are certainly growing up and were very well behaved.

P1130198Terri’s birthday is a week after mine, so Rick bought a cake and he put both of our names on it. Thanks Rick!




We supplied a picnic supper of burgers and hot dogs, and they brought the cake for dessert. It was a very nice afternoon.


Sunday night brought a gorgeous sunset. I sure do love beautiful sunsets.


We’ve had some interesting dogs in the park this week. A few years ago when we were in California we did see some dogs in strollers, but this is the first one we’ve seen in Wisconsin. What’s up with that?


A couple camped two sites from us have a Great Dane. It is one of the best behaved dogs I’ve seen. It doesn’t bark and is very calm. I’m sure it’s a great watch dog, though. If I saw that dog, I wouldn’t be messing with their stuff.


Today I went to a Salmon sale in the parking lot of the local grocery store. There was a truck in the lot selling Great Lakes Salmon for $2.99 a pound. They had a tent set up and were doing a brisk business. They would even filet it for you free of charge. You pay for the whole fish, but it was still a good deal. I got four meals for under $30. I did have to stand in line for 45 minutes. I guess I’m not the only person in Beaver Dam who likes Salmon and a good deal.

The last two weekends have been pretty quiet in the park. We’ve been a little less than half full. That’s fine with me. I’m getting antsy to get on the road again. We have about six weeks left, and I’m ready to be moving again.

Several of our friends are coming camping at our park for Labor Day Weekend, so that should be a good time. We are completely sold out next weekend. Between our friends and the other campers, we’ll be plenty busy.

Don’t wish upon a star – Reach for one!
