Jun 6, 2012 - 3rd Name That Tune Quiz

Tomorrow we take the trailer in for the final repair, hop in the truck and head East. Yippee Tyo's, we are so excited. After 2 long months with various reasons for delays, we are finaling starting to do what this journal says...traveling! In the meantime it is time for the 3rd Name That Tune Quiz. These were the songs we had on the radio today...can you guess what the names are? There are 13 song titles, just a hint. "Layla just wanted to runaway to El Paso. Everything had gone wrong with her love, the guy she had nicknamed big iron. Poor,...

Jun 5, 2012 - Fixing the truck

I was tired last night, so went to bed early. Therefore, this is yesterdays journal. John took the truck in this morning for an oil change and "check up" with our favorite mechanic. For those who live in the Federal Way area, if you need work done on your truck or car we highly recommend Brent at "Brent's Auto Repair" in Auburn. Great work, fair pricing and reliable. Then he too the truck to Les Schaub to have the nail in the tire removed, thankfully it was a little one, and had the tires checked. Can I say we are ready to rumble? After...

Jun 4, 2012 - A Dog Day Afternoon

We are driving down the road today when what did we see but three dogs with their heads out the windows of a red van. It was the cutest sight. We kept trying to catch up with them so I could get a photo. Finally, we came to a stop and I called to them, and they looked right at me. Too darn cute! That's it for today...thank you for spending a few minutes with me every day...I think you are great! Quote for the day: "If dogs could talk it would take a lot of the fun out of owning one".

Jun 3, 2012 - Lazy Sunday

We packed up the laundry and headed out to a laundromat close by. It was packed. As we got deeper into the building we noticed signs and could not believe our eyes..$2.50 for a small load, $4.75 for a larger load. Highway robbery! That is way beyond our budget as we never paid more than $1.75 at any laundry mat in any campground. I feel so bad for the people that were in the laundry having to do their wash at such a steep cost. You know it was stretching their budgets. I don't even know what the cost of the dryer was. John went to visit...

Jun 2, 2012 - Meat & Casinos

Had a lazy morning but finely left the trailer at lunchtime. Of course we were hungry (even though I made a hearty breakfast), so John headed towards Auburn to have a little barbecue. Just a little hole in the wall called Dickey's BBQ Pit in business since 1941 (4 years before I was born) with franchises all around. We walked up to the counter where you order your sandwich and sides. We decided to go with the pulled pork sandwich, no sides and a drink. Then you had to look around for a table as the place was getting pretty crowded. By the...

May 31, 2012 - Last day of May

We didn’t do too much today, other than make some phone calls and go to Trader Joes (my all-time favorite store)……. It was a do nothing day, so to speak. And, I can't think of anything to say...see that is how boring my day was. I can ask you some questions you might have the answers to...as you can tell, by the questions it was not only boring, but a bit of a annoying day. Have any of these scenarios happened to you? Why when you are calling a company on the phone and an automated voice asks you to punch in your member/account/SS number,...

May 30, 2012 - Saying so long

We went over to Kelly and Alex’s today to do some laundry and to cook them dinner. Whelp, the dryer needed to be hooked up as they have been having some problems with it. John got behind the dryer and put everything where it needed to be and about an hour later Alex arrived home. He went into the laundry room and turned the dryer on and oh, my gosh. What an awful sound! It sounded like it was going to blast out of the room. Alex said, “go ahead and use it, it has been making those sounds”. We said nope, thank you. If it breaks it will not...

May 29, 2012 - Don't you love gift cards?

We went to Starbuck’s for coffee and coffee cake (yeah, I know..calories), cause we had $14.00 left on our gift card and we had left the trailer without breakfast. After that, we went to Cabala’s as we have a $50 gift certificate burning a hole in our pockets. Actually, we got it as a Christmas present and haven’t been able to find many Cabela’s where we have been. So, I guess, burning a hole isn’t the right thing to say…how about, "better use it before we cannot find another Cabela’s". Boy, that is a long way to say we went to Cabela’s,...

May 28, 2012 - Memorial Day

On this Memorial Day, I am thankful for the freedom this country has given me. To the men and women who fought for this country and gave up their lives, we are forever grateful for their sacrifice. May we remember them always. My father served in WWII as an Army Scout Staff Sergeant in Guadalcanal and Fiji. He was only 23 when he was awarded the Silver Star for bravery and a Purple Heart for his injury on the same day. He was very modest about his service, feeling that anyone would have done what the Army considered a huge act of bravery....

May 27, 2012 - Indy 500

Happy Sunday. We went over early to John’s brother’s house. The Indy 500 was on and we didn’t want to miss it. Bill made eggs benedict, with fruit slices and coffee and great Bloody Mary's. It was a yummy breakfast. We sat around the coffee table watching the race and rooting for our favorite drivers. My favorite driver is Dario Franchitti, I think because he is married to Ashley Judd (whom I think is absolutely beautiful with a fantastic voice) and they are so neat together. John was routing for Tony Kanaan. Should have wagered a bet....

May 26, 2012 - Quiet Saturday

Sunny and warm, just the way we like it. It is one beautiful place when the sun is shining down on us. We had all kind of good intentions of doing something interesting today, but got sidetracked by a sale of RV’s at Poulsbo RV in Auburn. We like to look at RV’s, knowing that someday we will trade in the trailer for something a bit larger such as a 5th wheel. Last week we stopped by Baydo’s and found a 34 ft 5th wheel that we liked. We just want to get some ideas on what we are really looking for. We found an Everest 34 ft at Poulsbo that...

May 25, 2012 - The long weekend begins today

Happy Friday… It was a lovely day today, sunshine, warmth and good cheer to everyone. I know several of you will be going on a Memorial Day weekend with family and friends. Wishing you a wonderful weekend, drive safe, fly safe and enjoy. "Memorial Day is a federal holiday observed annually in the United States on the last Monday of May.
