Sep 12, 2018 - Key West, Here We Come
We left for Key West on schedule the morning of September 12th. Traffic was terrible in Nashville and added at least an hour to our driving day. We spent the night in Southern Tennessee in a Walmart parking lot so we could get our groceries. The next night we stayed in a rest area near Sycamore, Georgia. The next day we made it into Florida and talked to our new boss to let him know our progress. I had also texted him as we drove away from Margie’s Mom’s house. That night we stayed in an RV park because it had gotten pretty hot. We stopped...Jump to full entry
Nov 3, 2017 - "I'll never Turn Down a Doughnut"
I added pictures of some of the flora and fauna from our time in Kentucky. I did not realize there were so many varieties of mushrooms in so many vivid colors. Some of them looked like flowers. I also added a few pictures of the campground that I took the day/night before we left and the day we left. The campground was very dark at night.

The Flying j truck stop we stopped at and left the motor home at to go to Claudia...Jump to full entry

It comes on to the first screen that says Samsung Galaxy Note II (2) and goes no further. After going hunting again I went to a Verizon Store to see if they could reset it or something. I was told that it was a software issue and...Jump to full entry
May 14, 2017 - A Long Over Due Update
Well, from my last entry on March 13th I’m guessing we left the casino in Oklahoma on the 15th. We did go to some other casinos and did OK at a couple and not worth a darn at others. I got several candy bars from two of them. I know we stayed at our favorite casino at the border of Oklahoma and Missouri. When we arrived in St. Louis we stayed at Hollywood Casino. I don’t remember exactly what day we arrived but I know we were staying there so Margie could go see her granddaughter in a dance competition in St. Charles. On Saturday the 18th...Jump to full entry
