Moon Over Daisy Just After Sunset


THURSDAY

This morning I was glad that it was sunny because it’s no fun unhooking or hooking up to the utilities in the rain. Since I hadn’t fed Daisy when I returned to Austin from Paris, I needed to fill up on the way out of town. I was on the road by 10:30 and arrived in Columbus a little after noon.

We had twelve attendees, including newcomer Sue Hendrick, who had visited us several years ago. She decided to join our chapter since she has become a winter Texan. During the rest of the year she lives in Spokane, Washington.

This afternoon I borrowed a ladder from the park office so I could install the gray water vent cap that Larry Jaynes had given me. It was an extra one that he had carried around in his trailer for several years. I was glad that I hadn’t bought one, as I had been planning to do.

Tonight we had our usual potluck dinner. There were no birthday honorees this time.

FRIDAY

Today it has been pleasantly cool; I didn’t need to turn on my air conditioner. In fact, I used my little cube heater this morning while I was getting dressed.

Tonight we had dinner at Schobels’ Restaurant. The food and service were good.

SATURDAY

Today it was chilly, starting the day with heavy clouds and then clearing off by noon.

Ann Poole, Jeanette Lowell, Annette Dean and I ate lunch at Roasters Chicken and Grill. I had their blackened chicken wrap, which was quite good. I brought half of it home for later.
