Thursday Happenings.

We might see a little bit of warming today, with the afternoon temps supposed to get into the 60’s. It is sunny and nice just a bit of wind.

How about a Throwback Thursday?


               Sam & Donna 1982.


                        Heidi & Donna 1987.

The days are going by fast we plan on leaving here May 8th and spending one night one night on the road to the Escapade in Goshen In. It is a six hour drive so we will stop someplace about and hour or two from Goshen, Since we have to check in before noon we don’t want to rush and have to leave at 04:00AM on the first day.

Looking forward to the parking detail, John & Bridgett Hatch are in charge this year, so we should have a great time together.

I am sure Rigg’s will be looking forward to his camping time, he will sleep on the couch while we are away parking cars. then will go with us to visit, he was really good at the last rally and made a lot of friends, He likes the Doggie show where he can show off.

Sometime next week I will have the tires replaced on the Duramax, everything else is ready for the trip.

Once the Rally is over we will move about an hour away to Fort Wayne and visit our Nephew and Niece and their family.

Then in June we have an RV couple from Israel , Dan & Shula Oren, who will be visiting with us in their fifth wheel, we are looking forward to meeting them an showing them some of the sights around St Louis.

That’s about it for today, hope all is well with all our friends out there, a lot of them are home from their snowbird trips, and others are still on the road. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna………..


  1. Loved your Throwback Thursday photos! Sometimes we look at our old pics and wonder "Who were those kids?"
    Nice Blog.

  2. Man look at that full dress cruiser!

  3. You're getting out of Dodge -er St. Louie! The parking detail at Escapade always does such a great job. I think you will really enjoy Danny and Shula.

  4. Sam, a good place to overnight on the way to Goshen is the KOA in Terre Haute IN. That's where we always stop and it's a nice, easy place to get to. Safe travels!

  5. Throwback photos sure are a sobering way of reminding ourselves who we once were. Guess we're still kinda the same but we sure look a heck of lot different...........
