Sep 18, 2011 - A Day Trip To Minot

A nice sunny day for a trip to Minot to have lunch with Aunt Ellen and my brother Gerry then go up to visit Uncle Harris. Ellen's apartment was in the flood and it looks like she won't be able to move back in until some time after the first of the year. Later in the afternoon we stopped by Lenny and Pat's for a visit, Mary gave them the Montana grasshopper yard art she picked up at an antique store in Bozeman. The last time we seen Lenny and Pattie I had mentioned I was looking for a derby hat, well while we were there Lenny gave me a hat...

Sep 17, 2011 - Bad Luck Charm

I've been so busy working on my to do list that I haven't spent any time practicing on the banjo so today I did and it seemed like I was starting all over again. Tonight I went to bingo with Mary, her Mom and Ajay, I think I must be their bad luck charm because none of us won.

Sep 15, 2011 - $4.73 A gallon

I thought milk was high in Montana when the price went up to $3.50 per gallon until I paid $4.73 per gallon here in Bismarck. I came home after lunch to get some work done while Mary continued her winning ways at bingo. Still pretty chilly out but I did manage to wash the car and clean the front of the coach and the windshield of what seemed like a few million bugs.

Sep 14, 2011 - Screwed It Up

I was going to wash the car today but it only got up to 54F, how's that for an excuse? I spent most of the day running errands and putzing around the coach while Mary got in another two sessions of bingo. I tried to get the DVD & VHS players up and working again but I managed to mess up the DirecTV program to where I had to call them to get it working again.

Sep 13, 2011 - Froze Our Butt Off

I spent most of the day working on my "to do list" until Ajay got off work and Curtis came in from Valley City then we went out and froze our butt off playing nine holes at Pebble Creek. Mary and Kathie went to the afternoon session of bingo where they won, then Catie went with them to the evening session and they won again. At this rate Mary won't want to leave here but these 29F nights should help change her mind.

Sep 12, 2011 - Huge Sunflowers

Nancy and Terry hadn't seen our coach yet so they stopped by this morning for a visit. The forecast for the day was to be mid seventies and sunshine but instead it was low sixties, overcast with the winds blowing at 15 - 20MPH but we still managed to get in 18 holes in at Tom O'Leary Golf Course. This afternoon Mary, Nancy and their Mom won over two hundred dollars, tonight Ajay, Catie, Nancy, Terry, Mary and me all went to bingo where we won another $180.00. Said our goodbyes to Terry and Nancy tonight because they are leaving for...

Sep 11, 2011 - Huge Sunflowers

During my walk around the RV Park this morning and I stopped to take a couple pictures of the fields of sunflowers. This afternoon me, Ajay and Terry drove upto Washburn to play nine holes at Rock Creek Golf Course, a nice little course with a lot of water hazards. The ladies got in a couple sessions of bingo with no luck and we got in another nine holes of golf this evening. The weather has been great since we got here and the best part is no mosquito's.

Sep 10, 2011 - Nancy & Terry Come In

We slept in until 8:30 this morning because I messed up the alarm changing it back to central time last night. Ajay and I got in nine holes at Pebble Creek this morning, a very nice nine hole course here in Bismarck. Mary, Kathy and their mom all went to bingo where they won enough to cover their expenses for the day. This afternoon Mary's sister Nancy from Rice Lake Wi. and her boyfriend Terry came in. Me, Ajay & Terry got a 5:45 tee time at Tom O'Leary Golf Course and once again the ladies were off to the bingo parlor.

Sep 9, 2011 - A Little White Knuckle Driving

We pulled out of the park at 8:45AM this morning, we had planned on spending the night in Glendive but we were still feeling good when we got in there around 3:30 so we continued on into Bismarck arriving at 8:15PM. Other than road construction where the lanes are very narrow is was a good drive, Mary had about 20 miles of white knuckle narrow single lane driving that kept her full attention. I got in at least a couple hours of practice today, for the first time I played through a roll three times without looking at the strings and without...

Aug 20, 2011 - Itasca State Park, Itasca, MN

We left Royal Oaks RV Park after a three-day stay. We enjoyed it there...a nice, little park with lots of trees and cool temperatures. It was 62 degrees when we left about 10:00 am and headed to Itasca State Park. We had learned that the headwaters of the Mississippi River flowed from Lake Itasca and felt that we must witness this. We were not the only ones with that idea today! Lots of folks joined us at the visitor center and at the headwaters. We chose not to wade into the water on the slippery rocks. Let the younger folks do that...and...

Aug 16, 2011 - Proud Owner of a New Tent

Yesterday I wrote that I wasn't sure what the most unusual event would be because the day wasn't over yet. Well, I found out in a hurry. When I got back to my campsite last night there was the nastiest looking storm I've ever seen brewing just over the hill from my campsite. I think I had about three minutes before an unbelievable wind came blasting down the hill with thunder and lightning. I dove into my tent and within minutes it was trashed--poles mangled. I have never experienced something this ferocious and I literally got into the...
