Wednesday Musings.

Up early for coffee with my pretty bride and then she was off to the truck company and then the restaurant.
I want to welcome three new followers, two of whom I have been following on their blogs, Margie –Anne, New Zealand Diary, Gypsy Boho, ( no blog listed). & Sharon Del Rosario, Gypsy&The Mariner's RV Adventures, Sharon & her husband Don are currently in Alaska on an adventure, check in with them and see how they are doing, Margie-Anne is still recovering from the terrible earthquakes her homeland has experienced, read about her adventures too. Donna and I welcome you to our humble blog and hope you enjoy our journey to full timing.
Pretty slow day in Dardenne Prairie, I went out to the fiver and stripped the bed so the sheets and blankets could be washed, and aired the mattress out for all day, then I replaced the mattress cover so it would look presentable until the sheets are finished washing,That should be tomorrow after three loads of wash are run through.
Then aside from packing clothes and a few perishables in the fridge, it will be ready for the next trip.
Haven’t heard from the RV dealer yet if they are able to order the trim ring I need, if not I guess I can start junk yard scrounging to try to match one up. I remember when I was a kid a junkyard was a magical place, all those old cars and motors and back then anything you needed was unbelievable cheap. today your lucky to find what you need and then it is almost retail price.
Since Donna is going to the restaurant I went down and got one of my frozen PA pizza shells from the deep freeze and I will make a pizza for supper, Andy and Samantha can share in the bounty and with luck I will still have a couple pieces left for lunch later this week. I am getting down to my last couple of packages (2 to a package) so I will have to start making my own dough again soon.
I decided not to fight the holiday weekend crowd at the Lake and will wait until next week to take Adam up, it is so much better when the weekend warriors have left and you can get a good spot and relax without the pool and beach being so crowded.
Not much else going on, hope all is well with everyone out in blogsville. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna…..


  1. Since you named us blogsville, does that make you the founder of this town or possibly the mayor?

  2. Yup... we are skipping out on the crowded RV scene in the campgrounds this upcoming weekend too. The weekend warriors will be out in full swing.

    Besides, fireworks going off drives the dogs nuts!

  3. Enjoy that pizza and I sure hope you have enough left for lunch.

  4. I will be home for the holiday weekend, also. Don't like the crowds.

  5. happy wash day!!..nothing like clean laundry to make the fiver smell grand!!

  6. I was thinking that you must be getting low on the pizza shells. I thought maybe another trip to PA was in order to get more. How is your sister coming along, is her all mended?

  7. Enjoy your pizza! We were camphost last year this time and I certainly won't be missing the holiday crowd!
    Enjoy your wash day!!

  8. Thanks for the welcome, Sam! We had to make reservations for the upcoming holiday to be sure we'd have a place to park our 6 rigs traveling together. Most of the time, we don't need reservations. I'm sure there will be weekend warriors as neighbors.
