Happy Fourth Of July

Okay, so we didn’t exactly vegetate yesterday but, we did get some “stuff” accomplished.  First and foremost was the most important meal of the day; breakfast at Cracker Barrel with Uncle Herschel’s Favorite.  Then it was onto Uncle Wally’s to unload a boat load of money (well, I exaggerate – it was just a small boat load).

We picked up a couple of gifts for our sweet adorable and loveable little grand daughter’s, Kalina’s, birthday and then we picked up some toys for ourselves.  Our bathroom scales no longer work so Miss Judy wanted to replace them.  We bought some new ones but we will definitely have to take them back - THEY LIE!!!!  ;-) 

Also, I’ve been wanting to install a water filtering system to the kitchen sink, however, there is no more money in this year’s budget for RV upgrades.  So I did a little research and purchased a Pur 2 stage filtering water pitcher to fill the void until the 2011 budget year.  Alex was happy with that decision as changes in his water causes him digestive issues (I won’t give details – it’s not pleasant).

We spent the afternoon at home reviewing our travel plans for the rest of the year.  The plan is now all carved out in Jell-o.  We say Jell-o because we like to leave flexibility in our plans just in case something else crops up along the way.  The big issue was where are we going to hunker down for the Labor Day Weekend.

Fulltimers like to be settled in for the major holidays, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, and Labor Day.  Those are weekends of dawgs, kids, and smoky fires; don’t get me wrong.  We love to see families out enjoying the camping experience, however, we need to plan ahead for those times or else we just might find ourselves sleeping along side the road someplace.  Memorial Day we were at Tallulah Gorge, Fourth of July we are here in Tennessee, and Labor Day we decided to attend the Chapter 6 rally in Michigan.

Speaking of the Fourth of July, we want to wish you a Happy Fourth.  We have the privilege of living in the greatest country in the Whole Wide World thanks to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and the dedication of our fore fathers who laid down their lives for our freedom.  Even today young men and women are laying down their lives to protect our freedoms so let’s take some time today to give thanks for all their sacrifices.  May God continue to bless America.
