Jan 12, 2017 - STEPH's KNEE - Update

Steph seems to be doing well, as expected, and has walked with a walker 50' or so several times yesterday. She has been told that she will be discharged from the hospital tomorrow and transferred to a rehab facility. Because of the design of our coach we felt ithis would be better for her rehab to go to this facility.

Dec 22, 2016 - Merry Christmas!

We would like to take a moment to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and our wishes for healthy and prosperous New Year. Several of you have asked - Stephanie's first knee replacement surgery (left) will take place on Jan 10. Assuming everything goes OK, the other knee replacement will take place in 10 - 12 weeks. Needless to say, she is not looking forward to this but hopes the day-to-day pain will go away and that we will not have to skip many other things due to the knees. As mentioned before, we will update the recipient list on this...

Dec 3, 2016 - FLeft Lincoln Behind For The Winter

We left Lincoln on Nov. 10, 2016 at 7:30am, stopped at Hardees before the Bay Bridge, and then took S495 to Rt. 66 West (important to remember the exit is on the right). From there we took 81S to a Denny's Rest and parked at Liberty Plaza Truck Stop, Exit 273, in Mt.Jackson, VA to refortify st 12:30. We continued on 81 to Exit 180 to Natural Bridge KOA campground, arriving at 2:30, to spend our first night on the road. We arrived at Pigeon Forge,TN the following day and stayed at Claybough Campgrounds. While there, we met a group of people...

Nov 22, 2016 - Happy Thanksgiving!

To our friends and relatives that choose to keep up with our travels - we sincerely hope this has been a healthy year and we extend our hope that you have a restful Thanksgiving Holiday. The summer saw us put around 7,000 miles on the coach and some 22,000 miles on the Jeep. We are now back in lower Alabama for a relaxing fall and winter. So far, we haven't seen much relaxing as annual service on the coach, some unexpected work (like a new oven and microwave), and doctor and dental appointments have kept us busy. Our doctor visits have...

Apr 16, 2016 - More fun and on the road again, but not far

Once again we have spent a great winter at our favorite place, Anchors Aweigh RV Resort. We have really enjoyed all the fun times we have had this winter with many old and new friends. We continued with all our regular fun activities and even found more fun things to do. Bob and his friends played music ever chance that they got so I got to spend a lot of time being a roadie. After Mardi Gras in February the weather just got better and better and we were able to enjoy our winter home even more. One beautiful Saturday at the end of February...

Apr 13, 2016 - Back Home in Lincoln

We arrived back home on April 7th after spending a wonderful week with my cousin Sue and Tim Suppe. Also, connected with my Aunt Jean & Uncle Max Figary who live in the same development in New Smyrna Beach, FL. My Aunt & Uncle, now in their early 90s, keep active with park activities and playing card games at home. Sue, Tim, Dan and I made side trips to some of our special places we like to visit, eg. the Deland airport where we had lunch and watched the parachutists, the Daytona flea market, Panheads for pizza, a trip to the beach, playing...

Apr 10, 2016 - Foley, AL - Bella Terra RV Resort

It was an easy 190 miles from Chattahoochee to Foley, all on I-10 until just past Pensacola when we started south. We gave the Mothership a drink just after entering Alabama for 1.99/gal. It only took 48 gallons so we filled up for less than C-note - imagine that!! We like to keep the tank close to full when we stop, if convenient, as that discourages moisture in the tank and also allows us to run the generator if needed for an extended time or to just escape in case of an emergency. Doris was having trouble with the camera so again we have...

Mar 26, 2016 - Leaving Alabama

We are packing up to go to Florida for a few days. Hope we leave all this rain behind as we leave the Central time zone and the Gulf Coast. Over the 4 months we have been here, we have had 6 tornado watches, and one night we were called over to the Club House with a warning of one 8 miles away. Way too many for us and the kitties! Friday, we went to Fairhope to B&B Pecans to purchase 5# to take home. We'll enjoy those this summer! Friday night, the last Jam Session/Ice Cream Social for the Snowbirds was fantastic as usual. Hard to imagine...

Mar 7, 2016 - February news

February flew by with Mardi Gras activities, Valentines Day party, yard sale, and other Anchors Aweigh events. We had one interesting experience when folks were knocking on doors one evening warning of an impending tornado forming 8 miles away. We hurried to the storm shelter and within 1/2 hour, the threat was over. We endured heavy rain and wind but no tornado. Thank goodness! In all, we had 5 tornado warnings since our arrival. We have had problems with our refrigerator not cooling properly and luckily Mike Ewing RV Repair managed to get...

Feb 13, 2016 - A couple of months of winter fun

Since my last post we have had a lot of winter fun, in mid December, as usual, our Greedy Santa Party was a big hit here at the park. Darling little wine purses were the gifts most stolen, they and many other gifts caused a lot of laughing. Bob was happy with his first gift, a gift pack of Jack Daniels but after that was stolen he ended up with a massage monkey, he seemed to like that too. The gift I ended up with after my wine purse, a beautiful red imitation alligator one, was stolen was two boxes of chocolates; I’m not sure which one I...

Jan 15, 2016 - Keeping Busy

December and all the Holiday excitement is now behind us and the rest of the Snowbirds have arrived for the winter. The Annual Boat Parade, Greedy Santa Party, and Christmas Dinner were lots of fun. Dan and I keep quite busy with something going on every night and a busy daytime schedule as well. Monday begins Texas Hold 'Em, followed by Poker, Bingo, Mexican Train, Ice Cream Social/Jam Session, and Breakfast on Saturday (put on by volunteers here at the campgrounds). We have tickets for the Branson Tour in Loxley and a casino trip to...

Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas to all! We hope that each and every one of you has a wonderful holiday season with whatever you choose to do. We will be heading out for a cruise over the Christmas and New Year holidays. We board in Los Angeles passing through the Panama Canal on route to Fort Lauderdale. There are stops in Mexico, Guatemala, Costa Rica, and Columbia. The past couple of months have been pretty quiet here in Lower Alabama, but we have managed a few side trips in addition to our annual doctor visits, 6 month dentist...
