10/31/14 Friday in Advance, NC (Forest Lake-TT)
I have to admit, Halloween is just not a favorite of mine. The decorations are sweet, but not into the scary stuff or dressing like someone else. My biggest struggle was making costumes for my kids where they would be safe/visible and warm. Notice, I didn’t buy anything, just made them out of ordinary things like sheets and cowboy hats or black plastic bags (good for rain). Maybe I’m just too practical. John doesn’t seem to be all that interested either, so, other than sharing our candy, we’re glad to just keep a low profile. Imagine our surprise when we won 1st and 2nd prize for the “Zombie Walk” we took at Medina Lake-TT in California 2 years ago! We just wanted to go for the walk, didn’t dress up, but because no one else signed up and walked, we won!
Today we had a nice walk to the mailbox BEFORE lunch. So glad Washington State (one of 3) is all mail-in ballots. Thus we mailed our votes for this mid term election. (Forgot to mention that we got our monthly mail (Christmas!) yesterday….that’s what took up our afternoon….).
After lunch we talked to John’s sister and RV friends. I got my monthly photo organizing accomplished. Then we went on ANOTHER campground walk, this time meeting another couple, Karen and Jeff. They showed us the path to a real “Pioneer Cemetery”, but it was blocked for logging efforts. We agreed to meet after dinner for cards. It was supposed to rain then, so we took an umbrella as we walked to the clubhouse. We all had a great time with “13” and sharing, then split for home at bedtime. It’s supposed to rain all day Saturday, so we planned to get together then too.
Lake Forest has another historical place, an old tobacco barn along with a “forest” of satellite receptors.
