|Tuesday was another non busy day. The day started with a trip to Walmart in Three Rivers for a few supplies. On the way back we stopped in Nottawa for some brats. This place has over 34 varieties of brats; we picked up about 12 different kinds, Beer, Italian, Green Pepper and Onion, Sun Dried Tomato and Basil to just name a few. This afternoon was devoted to a few last minute details, tightening up some outdoor chairs, finishing up the circle (cut yesterday) by painting it blue and refreshing some wind chimes. It's all coming together and it will be over before we know it, then we will be heading for San Antonio. Wednesday was another day of little things, and then we drove into Fort Wayne, IN to have dinner and visit with Phyl's best friends from high school. They haven't seen each other for almost 15 years, although there is the yearly Christmas card/newsletter. It was a very nice visit and we were able to catch up with the news of each family (Mary has 7 sisters and 1 brother, so there was a lot to catch up on). Made it back to Colon about 1230 am. Today (Thursday) was another day of sight-seeing. We started the day at the RV/MH Museum & Hall of Fame. It is a very interesting place. The main function is to celebrate the contribution of people who have helped make RVing the industry it is today (the hall of fame), but they also have a collection of about 40 travel trailers and MH dating from 1913 to about 1980. Some of the RVs are very primitive, but some are amazing in their design. It was fun walking among them attempting to visualize how people of yester-year went RVing. After touring the museum we traveled over to the Georgetown division of Forest River to see how "G/G" was "born" As it turned out, we received our tour from the regional salesman we have been dealing with in Texas. It was interesting to see each step in the process from the chassis to the finished product. Bob is already thinking about our next MH. We found out just how soundly "G/G" is built. It makes us feel a little more secure in our home away from home. Later in the day, we stopped by a winery we thought would be interesting. The name is D'Avella Winery and we wanted to see if by some chance they were distance relatives. Let's just say they were distant. They bottle interesting wines, lots of fruit wines such as apple, cranberry, raspberry and combinations of them. The most interesting one they make is Sauerkraut Wine. Phyl tasted it and said it was different, good for tasting, but not for drinking. Mr. D'Avella said that the customers who buy the sauerkraut wine use it for marinating pork. Phyl just couldn't bring herself to buy any, especially since she has a bottle of Jalapeño wine at home she hasn't used yet. Tonight people started arriving for the wedding. Tomorrow will be spent finishing up the million little things remaining. Bob and Phyl have to drive into the Fort Wayne, IN airport to pick up their daughters, Robin & Heather, who are coming in for the wedding.
