Welcome Home Patterson Family

Well, here we are; home again, home again, jiggity jig.  We broke camp and were on the road by eight o’clock Eastern Time in an attempt to beat the rain to Summerdale.  Aah, the sweet smell of success; we pulled into Rainbow Plantation at just a little after noon Central Time and was back in our stall plus all set up by one o’clock.  We beat the rain by a couple hours and now it’s as if we’d never even been gone. 

Jim and Ellie had invited us over for a travel day meal.  It was so nice to see them once again and the meal was delicious, but as always, the company was the best part.  It was a great evening of chatting, chewing, and chuckling.  Thanks, guys, for your hospitality and the wonderful meal.

Today is Sunday, so that means worship.  It will be nice to be at our own church in person once again.  Internet services are better than nothing, however, you can’t beat the real thing.  Later this afternoon we’ll join Norm and Linda for another “travel day” meal.  Norm e-mailed and he’s preparing quite a spread.  We’re looking forward to seeing them again as well. 

Now that we’re settled in, it’s time to start “rebuilding” the coach again.  I need to start with the bedroom closet and reinstall the clothes rack so we can get the clothes off the floor, then it’s onto restringing the day/night shades so we have some privacy, next we will be replacing the A/C shroud, refrigerator vent cover, and the bedroom slide topper, fixing the gas fireplace so we can relax in comfort while watching the logs burn, and on, and on, and on. 

How about all those chores that have to be done as well?  Like washing and waxing both the truck and the rig, both need a deep cleaning inside as well, getting caught up on the laundry, doing the filing, etc., etc..

Then we’ve got a Bocce Ball court to layout, crafts to do, visiting to catch up on, reading to do, and so on and so forth.

Tired yet?  Here I am sitting in my recliner while thinking about all of the above and contemplating running away from home.  In the words of Maynard G. Krebs, “Werk??!!!”  Yep, welcome home Pattersons, welcome home!!!

May God Bless  - - - - - - - -
