Batten down the hatches and get ready for a rough ride. A Hurricane is expected this weekend!
We took the motor home out for the week to Jackson Rancheria RV Park. With the price of gas nowadays, we've decided to do a short trip and enjoy the beauty of our own Gold Country. It's about two hours away so it doesn't take long but yet seems like we are on a glorious vacation.
The RV park is part of an Indian gaming casino and it is quite nice. The Captain and I are not gamblers but we do allow ourselves each $20 and when that's gone, we're done, and we are always done pretty darn fast. But...
as it so happens, I parlayed $20 into $188.04 on Saturday evening, so I'm feeling quite flush! Thrift stores here I come.
I remember as a little kid going camping with my folks. I can still smell the wood smoke of the camp fire and my mouth waters when I think of the fresh trout that my Dad caught that morning, and my Mom cooked up for breakfast, along with homemade biscuits.
As a teenager, I went with family members up to Yosemite every year. There again, those familiar smells come back to me along with memories of roasting marshmallows and climbing Half Dome.
We had a small 17 foot trailer that we pulled behind our car when the kids were small, and had such good fun watching them catch crawdads in the creek.
Looking back we had a lot of good times while camping but things are a little different now. As we've reached a certain age, circumstances need to be a little easier. We still want all those things that are bountiful in our memories, and we can still have them, but with just a little less earthiness, so to speak.
Case in point.....
We didn't quite have a hurricane but we did have a little rain and lots of thunder and lightning and as we rode off into the sunset, I hope you enjoyed coming along with us and may we all weather the storms of life and see sunny skies ahead....Judy
"The sign in the window said for sale or trade
On the last remaining dinosaur Detroit made
$700 was a heck of a deal for a 400 horse power juke box on wheels
Now the road rolls out like a welcome mat
I don't know where it goes
But it beats where we're at
We always said some day, some how, we're gonna get away
We're gonna blow this town
What about now"
Lone Star, "What About Now"
I think we made the right decision, don't you?
