As usual for campout week ends, this morning I stopped at Discount Tires to have my tires checked before heading to Lexington. I was settled into my site by a little after noon. Our attendance this time was much smaller than usual – only 11 rigs. Our potluck dinner wasn’t small, however! We’re never in danger of going hungry.
Two of our birthday honorees were here: Betty Wendler and Larry Jaynes. Since neither of the women who usually bake the birthday cakes were here, we had to make do. We used Val’s banana bread and the “candle” was a trig which Bruce had carved. We don’t give up easily. :>)
A cold front blew in today so the wind was pretty brisk. We stayed indoors because it just wasn’t very comfortable outside. There was sunshine later in the day, though. It warmed up to around 60 degrees, I think.
Tonight we had dinner at Granny’s. The service was good but the food only so-so. In this little town of only about 1200 people there aren’t many choices for eating out or other entertainment. The big thing this week end was an antiques show, but only a couple of our members went to it.
It was still windy and cold today so we stayed in again and just visited. LaVirle Tharp, one of our former members who lives near here, came to see us. It was nice to catch up on her activities. She no longer travels in her RV.
