4/14/13 Sunday at Louisville, MS (Legion State Park)
It started raining before we got up, but lightly, so with “rain catcher” in its place, we had breakfast. Predictions are that the rain will stop around 10:30 am, but they keep moving it later. We need to “babysit” Miss Zanzibar until it stops and we are sure it’s gone or we have some slides pulled in. At 10 we pulled in the bedroom slide and decided to make today our “rest” day and explore the Trace tomorrow. It does mean John will be driving our coach the next day to Tishomingo St Park.
John got ambitious and did 2 jobs: clean off the front window bugs and run the generator (should “exercise” it monthly).
While he was busy, I posted more blogs. Almost caught up.
After lunch we got down to business with our travel plans. Once more, it just takes so much time, it’s hard to believe. Of course, dear John makes lots of plans while he’s “pondering” at his computer, then we get together to figure it out and I throw wrenches in his plans. This time he’d planned to go to LaCrosse, WI because I wanted to, since this was my where my college was. When I realized that all our struggles of moving along at such a quick pace were due to going to LaCrosse, I told John that I wouldn’t see anyone I knew – it’s been 40 years and that the buildings are not THAT important. Now we had a whole new trail, but it means we can stay longer at each place. Yipee!
We are planning to to see my aunt, mom’s last surviving sibling and lots of cousins in Illinois and another in Michigan. I’m so excited.
We had a great supper of roast beef, mashed potatoes and gravy. Naturally that brought lots of dishes. Once I got through that stack, I cleaned house. Busy day, again.
