Hi, it’s Donna…Sam is taking nap and designated me as the author today…so bear with me.
Yesterday Mary aka Natasha and Paul aka Boris, who travel in Bullwinkle, gave a seminar on The Myths of Full Timing. Very informative and given in a humorous style that kept your attention. They are both very good speakers. Paul was a financial planner in his stix and bricks days and gave a very realistic eye opening approach to the cost factors… Well done Mary and Paul

Last night was Happy Hour at Ken and Angela’s before we went to the Mathewson Center for the nightly gathering. When we arrived at their place poor Max had been banned from Happy Hour, his full name is Mad Max and he is a very exuberant beagle. Just ask Riggs, Max is a great dane in a beagles body. Annie always the lady greeted everyone with quiet dignity. We had to be inside as the winds almost blew petite Angela into the next county and we knew the chips didn’t stand a chance. As usual lots of laughs and good times. P.s. Max was finally allowed to join us and after getting lots of pets and kisses he settled down, well almost (as long as Ken had him on a lead).
Donna, Ken, Angela, Len, Phyllis
We stuffed ourselves with snacks and off to the nightly drawing. :-( Our gang won nothing. Ken and Angela stayed for the nightly entertainment Ham a Rama, amateur hour with RV’ers as talent.
Since Riggs stayed home and did his impersonation of a guard dog this is what he did after he knew he was off duty.
Today was the Pet Parade. There were tons of dogs there all shapes and size from miniature pomps to greyhounds.
UNCLE SAM AND DOGGIE SAM ALMOST IN LEAD
ANNIE, ALWAYS THE LADY
Many dressed up. Seems that more photos were taken of Riggs than the other dogs, I know he got the most laughs. You see Riggs has no modesty.
