Supercuts Search and Storm Approaching

6/12/13 Wednesday at Buchanan, MI (Bear Cave Resort-TT/Mid Atlantic)

It’s not just the GPS that can mislead you, Google can as well. Just as at Tupelo, where it gave an address for the Urgent Care that no longer existed there, so it gave us an address for Supercuts in Niles, MI, that was no longer there, although we could see a Fiesta Salon. We came back to Buchanan, then, to get stuff posted on the blog at the Library, only to discover it doesn’t open until noon. Okay. I’ll write up yesterday, then we’ll have lunch and see how we approach the day.

As we were finishing lunch, guess who knocked on our door? Kathie (RV friends from Monaco RV Service days)! She’d called earlier, to let us know they were on their way. Apparently, she’d called 3 more times when we were in the rig doing lunch, but the calls never reached my phone (bad cell phone service here, especially, when we’re in the coach). They’d gotten lost, but Bob thought of putting the GPS coordinates into his GPS, thus they made their way to Bear Cave Resort.

We had the best of times visiting with them for the rest of the day, splitting to have our own suppers, then getting together for a game of UNO (Bob won, hands down). Kathie made wonderful sundaes, then, since it started to rain and a severe thunderstorm was predicted, John and I rushed back home.

Because the storm news had been given well before now, we’d put the bedroom slide in. Also, I suggested we leave our air conditioner on in the bedroom: it would keep us at 76 degrees (it was a very hot, humid day, typically) and it would provide “white noise” so we may not hear the storm.

Good night. We’ll see how our front slides handle this storm because we left them “out.”

About Patricia Elser

I've always loved the loose, flowing, transparent look of watercolors, of Chinese paintings and their calligraphy, but alas, no watercolor classes were available when I was in school, so that interest remained buried until my children were grown. Even then, I was afraid that I couldn't really paint, so upon my sister's advice, I actually started to take classes. I signed up for every class available, determined to learn no matter how afraid I was. I came upon a teacher, Stan Miller, who inspired me, who opened the door to success in watercolor. I love to look at beautiful images. I want to capture them forever. All my life, photography was how I gathered images of the beauty I saw. Thanks to all that photography, I enjoy composing pictures, especially up close. Watercolors allow me to add more of me in their translation of that beauty. My paintings reflect my love for music and dance, with their rhythm and flow. I am fascinated by the play of light, so it appears in my pictures as drama for they are filled with darks and lights. Maybe it's the challenge, maybe it's the beauty, but now, when a work comes together, it fills my soul.
