Jul 6, 2019 - Update

Three weeks of living in Conway. Helping where possible with Beth and family. Sue got her stitches out a few weeks ago and is healing. She is still oozing in one spot that may require a return trip to the doctor, but that is still a few days out. We had the truck in the shop for a week, but after $1,400 it is finally starting as it should. Amazing! ! ! Mostly we have tried to help and beat the heat. It is hot in Arkansas in the summer. We are leaving on July 15 and headed for the mountains in Waynesville, North Carolina where we will spend...

Jun 15, 2019 - Third Catchup and the week that was...

On Sunday the 9th we were up at a reasonable time and preparing to leave Red Bay. A great trip but it was definitely time to leave. And leave we did at about 10:00 a.m.. There were no weather issues so the drive was an easy drive. The opening of I-269 that cuts across from I-22 to I-55 just outside of Memphis is a most welcome addition to the route to and from Red Bay. We were through Memphis just after 12:30 and stopped at the old rest area just west of West Memphis and had sandwiches. Then the last leg to Conway with a quick stop in...

Jun 12, 2019 - Second Catchup

This post will cover our five days that we spent at Brannon's Custom RV and Chris Berry's. It was a most productive trip. We got a lot of things done to the coach. I will outline most and I have several pictures from the stay at Chris Berry's. This should get us back to Saturday evening the 8th. I will bring the remaining days up to the current date at the next posting. Tuesday morning we were up early. We had to have the Bus at Brannon's by 7:00 a.m. Not a big deal but it was about a seven mile drive to his shop in Vina. So, up at 5:15 and...

Jun 10, 2019 - First Catchup...

Now that we are back in Conway and have a great internet connection I will try to update the old information and get everyone current on all that has happened and all that is going on currently. I will break up the post into several days so it will not get so long and boring. Tonight's post will cover Thursday the 30th of May thru Monday the 3rd of June. We got back to Conway on Sunday the 9th but by the time we got set up for a one month stay, showered, went by Beth's and then went to dinner, we were exhausted and I could not begin to...

May 29, 2019 - Another week and rising water...

One whole week has gone by since we moved to Forest Lake Mobil Home Park. And it is a good thing we did. We have driven out to the bridge over the lock and dam twice since we moved here. The first time it was just about to enter the campgrounds. The second trip which was three days later it was in the campground and the roofs on the pavilions and the picnic tables at the campsites were just barely out of the water. There was an area on the other side of the bridge where they were filling sand bags. There were about 40 people there working....

May 22, 2019 - And another week has gone by...

A lot has happened and there have been internet connection issues, so I have not posted in about eight days or so. I will not try to cover anything but the highlights so as not to bore anyone reading this or put me to sleep trying to remember. Thursday was our last day in LR last week and we took care of a few issues and got ready to move on Friday. Friday got a little busy. We were up early to get the Bus ready to move before I headed for a hair cut and a pedicure...or combat pay as Cyrena calls it.. Our appointment was at 9:00 a.m. We...

May 1, 2019 - It's raining AGAIN !!

I know this summer folks here in Arkansas will be begging for rain...but for right now, there has been too much. I think April ended up about 10 inches above normal. And from the looks of the standing water that was around the Bus this morning (from the time I got up until after lunch) there were at least three to four inches up on the rear passenger tires. We have been busy when it was not raining and then having trouble staying awake when it was raining. Monday we started off slowly and awaiting Beth's report on her Strep Throat. The...

Apr 28, 2019 - The week that was....

Tuesday we stayed around the Bus until we headed for Beth's a little after noon. Sue went with Beth to the surgeon's office in North Little Rock. I ran out and tried to find a spring I lost on the string trimmer of Jeff's. This was not an easy to accomplish project. Sue and Beth were back around 3:00. I picked up Katie and Hannah and we were back to Beth's a little after 3:30. Dinner and we were back at the Bus before naptime and bedtime. Beth's visit to the doctor set up the approximate times for her surgeries later this summer and the...

Apr 22, 2019 - Finally it stopped raining...

Finally, there was no rain falling from the sky. And maybe that was sunshine we saw...or maybe not...it has been a while. To pick up from Thursday night, the baseball game won out and I stayed with it to the end. And, a HOG victory...WooHoo! ! ! Friday it was how to stay out of the standing water. We were out and around with a little shopping, stopping by Beth's to check on Nebula, the cat, and watching for deliveries we expected from Amazon. Friday night was rice, gravy and cube steak...another WooHoo that went well with Caesar salad and...

Apr 18, 2019 - Rain, Rain & more Rain...

After the rainy and stormy weekend, Tuesday was a beautiful day. But it was just a joke because more rain (storms) were in the forecast. Wednesday was cloudy and you could feel the oncoming storms by Wednesday afternoon. By Wednesday about midnight the rain and the storms were here with a vengeance. Heavy rain, hail and high winds really tried to keep us awake. It kept Sue awake and I managed to doze and sleep through most of the storms. And, today (Thursday) has been totally miserable. Rain to heavy rain and finally a slow drizzle as I...

Apr 15, 2019 - My Masters break is over...

I will confess I have enjoyed the last five days. It has been Masters time. We have always enjoyed the Masters Golf Tournament. It is extremely special since we were there for two days back in 2007. Every shot we discuss if we were there on that particular part of the course and where we sat or stood. It was a great time and when possible we enjoy diving into all the coverage during the tournament. Every day was the same. One television was on the Golf Channel. When it was appropriate (Thursday and Friday) we also had ESPN on and of course...

Apr 10, 2019 - Four day catch up...

Busy, distracted, tired or some other reason has kept me from keeping current on this site. However, it is time for me to catch up on a few items so we can get and stay current. Sunday was a slow day. We watched a little television, probably took a few naps (Sue needed it as her coughing was getting worse) and hosted Beth during the mid afternoon. She and StanLee came out to let him visit with Ziva on her turf and see if we could get them acclimated. After about an hour and a half, I am not sure how it worked out. One moment they are fine,...
