Not Much of Anything

And that just about describes what we’ve been up too.

First I want to welcome (although a little late) Chuck and Anneke and Kate.  Welcome aboard.

We really haven’t been doing much, after all it is a vacation and we are retired.  Right?  We had some nasty rain showers the other night.  It came down in torrents.  It would seem to lessen then build up again.  I’m always so concerned about leaks, which I’m sure anyone who has a motorhome of some kind is.  But the rest of the days have been sunny and bright although a tad chilly.  One night I turned off the water and put the lamps in the bins, but according to my weather ‘Oscar’ it didn’t get cold long enough to freeze.  So I’ve just been watching the temps in the bins and outside.  I bought several of those small inside/outside temperature monitors at Wal-Mart for $9 each and installed 1 in each of the bins where water resides.  Also put one in the fridge just to check the temp in there too.  Once the weather gets warmer and I don’t have to worry about freezing I can remove then from the bins. 

The campground had a BBQ on Saturday to thank people for being for understanding about their water problem.  (think it was mentioned in a previous blog) It really wasn’t a problem far as I could see, just fill up your tank.  Anyhow, it was a very nice gesture and it was really good.  They had ‘dog’ and hamburgers, salads, beans, what no grits?  They serve grits with everything down here.  To me they taste like Cream of Wheat without any brown sugar or milk.

Checked out THE mall here.  I guess it’s the biggest mall around.  Nothing spectacular, didn’t buy a thing.  I’m surprised that there are no outlet malls here or at least I haven’t found any.  Must Google and see what I find.

Has anyone out there ever tried a product called ‘Baconaise’?  My daughter asked me to try and get some when we were in the Southwest a few months ago, but I couldn’t find it anyway.  Finally went to their site to see where it is sold.  Apparently only Winn-Dixie and Publix carry it.  Anyhow I found some the other day and bought her a jar of it.  It’s supposed to replace the bacon part of a say, bacon and tomato sandwich.  It’s bacon flavoured mayonnaise.  Just wondered if anyone tried it and what they thought of it.  I told her the thought of it grosses me out for some reason.  I prefer a slice of the real stuff, thank you very much.  I didn’t buy myself a jar.

I am enjoying this new site location so much.  We get the sun and it’s wonderful.  How dreary it is when the sun doesn’t shine down on you.  And it just warms things up so much especially here in the motorhome.

Ken got the bikes out yesterday and was filling up the tires.  We will be using them very soon, but unfortunately there really isn’t too many places to ride them.  We will just have to go round and round the campground.  It’s not a big place and the roads outside of the campground are too busy to ride them there.   It’s just been too darn cold to even think about riding them.  Kind of spoils the fun when you have to don a winter jacket just to ride your bike. 

Well another day has dawn bright and sunny, not a cloud in the sky.  I think rain is on the forecast for tomorrow though.

Sorry no pictures today.

Until later..take care.


  1. I feel for you guys over there in Florida with those cold temperatures! Maybe you should head west next year to the southwest desert!

  2. I'm with Rick, come on West. Another thing we like about the desert over Florida, we can leave our chairs and stuff out overnight and they all don't look like they have been rained on even on a warm clear night.
