Farewell for a Time

Well, here we are at the end of January already.  It didn’t seem possible we’d been here a month then I remembered we didn’t actually get here until the middle of January.  Still, the time seems to have evaporated.  They say, “time flies when you’re having fun”.  I think, at my age, I better quit having so much fun.

Monday morning was spent in the kitchen.  We had invited Mike and Peggy and Tony and Diana for dinner.  We are leaving today and so are Mike and Peggy, so it was kind of a farewell dinner.  It was a pot luck, but I had a couple things to prepare so I got onto that right away.  We’re heading over to the FMCA rally and will be dry camping for several days, so I wanted to get a few things made up ahead of time for that.  Seemed like I cooked and washed dishes all morning.

For lunch, we drove over to Cracker Barrel to meet friends from Nashville. Jim and Janice are in our hiking club (Tennessee Trails) and we’ve known them for years.  They are spending a few weeks in their Airstream at a campground near Dade City.  After lunch we all came over to our place to give them a tour of an Escapee campground.  We enjoyed visiting with them for a few hours.

Our dinner guests came strolling in about 4 bringing food, lawn chairs, and gifts.  Mike presented Gene with his very own multimeter.  That’s so nice.  I lifted this photo from Mike’s blog.  Thanks a million, Mike.
Planning future adventures.
The couple weeks we’ve had to spend with Mike and Peggy have now come to an end.  It’s been great fun, but they are off to continue on their winter tour of the warm southern states before heading back to Maine in the spring.  We had a wonderful time together.  Safe travels to Mike and Peggy.

We are moving today, as well.  But not far.  Just 30 miles or so over to Brooksville to the Family Motor Coach Assoc. (Southeastern region) rally.  This will be our first small regional rally and we’re looking forward to a new experience.  The only other rally we’ve attended was The Rally (Good Sam) in Albuquerque in 2009.  That was huge and we didn’t like it so much.  We’re anxious to try something smaller.  Details of the rally are forthcoming.

That’s it for this morning.  Thanks for tagging along.
