7/27/13 Saturday at Jefferson, OH (Kenisee Lake-TT)
Jefferson’ Farmer’s Market is the smallest we’ve seen: 2 booths: one of honey and jam, the other of vegetables. We got there about 9:30 am (started at 9), but all the beans and tomatoes were gone already. Sheesh. So we got a zucchini and a cucumber. I spent the morning working on the blog, as the rain poured down.
Later, as the clouds and rain gathered, we determined it wouldn’t be much fun at the Dock Fest in Conneaut this afternoon, so we just stayed home. Another bummer: we now have both the leaks that had been worked on at Wakarusa, IN, for over 2 days and $1200, to both now leak as badly as before that work. I’m so disheartened. There is also damage going on behind the wall of the driver’s side leak; it’s bumping out the aluminum skin on the outside and destroying the wallboard (and probably the floor) on the inside. This despite my catching all the water I can with chamois cloths and fans. It’s a big problem in that who will buy an RV with signs of leaking damage (if you repair those signs, the next rainfall creates them again)? Thus, if you can’t get it fixed, you are forever struggling with it’s damaging effects.
We did manage to escape the rig to eat ice cream at a pavilion, as the rain poured down. The rest of the day I read and John watched Clint Eastwood shows on the TV. After supper, we started on our walk when some rangers drove by reminding us of the “Dance and Karaoke” event going on right then. We’d forgotten, since our plans for the Duck Fest fell through, all other plans did as well.
So, at the big barn, we listened to the DJ play music and others line danced to a lot of the music. As people got more comfortable a few sang Karaoke and danced. I even got to sing into the microphone (with lots of others). We also danced to a couple songs and didn’t leave until the show wrapped up around 11 pm! We got to walk home in the dark, but the sky was clear and beautiful!
My brother got married today—-Our wishes for years of happiness go out to you! We are so thrilled to have Kristen now officially part of the family!!!
