THURSDAY

This morning I headed to Columbus after a stop at Discount Tire to have my tires checked. I was on the road by 9:30 and arrived at the RV park by noon. I stopped only a couple of times.

Due to the large number of pipeline and oil field workers in the area, RV spaces are hard to find. The Columbus RV Park had only twelve spaces for us so some of us had to park between spaces! The owner is very group-oriented and went all out to make us feel welcome. She apologized for the crowded conditions.

She is very patriotic; she flies a flag with the names of all the 9/11 victims.

The clubhouse is very nice. There's a large porch on two sides with a porch swing, several rocking chairs and a glass-topped table. The meeting rooms were decorated with Halloween and other fall decorations.

Tonight we had our usual potluck dinner and played table games afterwards.

Marilyn Childers brought a cute dog dressed in a pumpkin outfit. When his foot was pressed, he would start singing. At some points in his song, his ears would fly straight up. Very cute.

FRIDAY

At our business meeting this afternoon, we elected club officers for 2012: Stuart Whiteside for president, Val White for vice president, Ethel Fitzgerald for treasurer and me for secretary. We will be installed at our December meeting. Members also voted by secret ballot for the camper of the year, who will be announced in December.

Tonight we had dinner at Schobels Restaurant. The food and service were good. Most of us had the buffet.

SATURDAY

This morning I had a nice visit with Sibyl in her trailer. She showed me how to play a ukulele and a lap dulcimer. I tried my hand at the dulcimer and found it to be fairly easy to play.
