Wish we could make it too Lou. I know you will have a great rally! You and Larry would make wonderful hosts.

Yes I think we all ought to be able to find a few pictures. We went over to where Vicki seasons with her Airstream and got to see her stomping grounds.

I shall try to get some photos up shortly.

Happy labor Day Weekend Everyone! Now Lou and Larry are having their rally in Ohio. These pictures are from last weekend when the Rivettes Went Hawaiian in Stanwood Michigan.

Vicki and Jeff were great hosts at River Ridge, their home away from home when they are not traveling on the road, and Suz and Ike treated us to afternoon pontoon rides with their lovely water craft on the Muskegan River.

The first point of order was adorning Betty Lou with full grass skirts! Meanwhile there was time to sit and enjoy a beverage, maps to be checked, bikes to ride, and dogs to be walked.

Looks like you all had a great time. Wish we could have joined you. The grass skirt on Betty Lou looks great! Hey, Danielle, nice smile! Looks like Lady Bug ha a good trip.
We have the Luhr family in one courtesy spot and DanB in another. Streamin65, Fritzi and Dave, should be joining us this afternoon. We have quite a few more folks driving in for the potluck! Wish you were here!
NOW.....I have to get cookin'! Making sloppy joes etc. for this afternoon.
Happy Labor Day everyone!
Lou and Larry

Steph made a big hit with with all the bubbles and I had just as much fun watching. Sam was being a "little monkey" and ever so funny and cute. Sharon's and Peter's dogs Taz and Hailey are the best dogs and acted the perfect sled team for Danielle one afternoon. Now you see me there with the "What's up with this?" gesture and my feet in a pail? Well bugs LOVE me and I had no less than 25 bites on my feet and ankles from being sandal footed the night before even though I had repellent slathered on generously. The girls were doctoring me and trying to relieve the itch which was driving me crazy!

Hey what's that? Sam with a Canada hat and playing with a Canadian Mountie bobblehead? Afterall we are International.

There were so many beverage treats on hand. Ike brought out French Vanilla coffee and flavored cream in the morning. I know I am spoiled now, my absolute new favorite. Straws with honeycomb flamingos and umbrella straws and flamingo goblets with fresh pineapple chunks and cherries made the crowning touch to Mai Tais and Margaritas.

Lou send a hearty hello from me to all. I think I shall stop coming home entirely and just rally full-time! Sound like a plan? Actually if I leave now perhaps there will be enough sloppy joe left... Wish I could Lou. Have fun and take lots of pictures for us.

Every Luau needs a pig for roast pork and River Ridge was no exception. Rather a pretty pig, don't you think? Of course the Luau was followed by a dance that went well into the quiet hours. There was even a little dancing on the pontoon! What was that song?

Never enough time to do all you would want to do but we made a valiant effort and had a heck of a time. My thanks to all of you for all your work and special kindnesses and gifts and making our time together so very special.

Now that is a Classy Establishment!!!!

Wow nice pictures Carol - was I at the same gathering

Okay now it is I who have been elected to put you all straight as to the reason for this un-official gathering of Rivettes without a blanket invitation

We felt that it was high time that some people stepped up to the plate and made our Rivettes concept OFFICIAL!!!!

So here it is The Five of us stepped up to the plate and elected ourselves as your NEW BOARD OF DIRECTORS...

Now as it stands - we have not subsequently appointed ourselves into any positions yet - as you can see Vickie and Carol are fighting over what position they want Click image for larger version

So I have decided the next meeting to appoint us into the specific positions shall be in the far north of MI State -any objections!!! thought not!!!!

Thus our first order of business was to prepare our new coats........

After we came in on the wednesday night after 2 days of rain up at Sleeping Bear Dunes we thought we were in for a nice time with the weather. We came in to a fabulous lightening spectacular scene coming down Hwy131 and that is when I wished I had either Vickies or Carols camera - I just have to get me a new camera!!! Well I will leave you with the imagination. We just managed to get in and get all the stuff at the front of the trailer to the back so we could get in the door and pow we got pummeled with hard Rain....

It was like the Long Long Trailer opening.....but then the knock on the door and it was Vickie our amazing hostess!!! You are the best Girl!!

The next morning we opened the door to this...

Thought I'd died and gone to trailer park heaven!!! especially after listening to the Troubs that night before bed....

Our next day was the threat of terrible severe storms that rashed through several places in MI Yikes....

Our only decorations we came with.....wish she was all polished up - nope I wish we had the innards, and all the services in the Lady Bug - I felt a bit out of place with all these posh big fully serviced units - but it was nice to see Friday roll around when the Airstreams started to invade the Park - Betty Lou II was just telling me it was kind of lonely for her....

On our way down to River Ridge we detoured to Sue and Ikes - (actually we tell a lie....) we thought their place was on the way - we were headed to River Ridge Camp Ground initially and would have had quite a boring weekend as no one would have been at that camp.....

We had a lovely lunch and tour of Lake George, Sue and Ike have a gorgeous spot on the lake.

I did a stellar job of backing in the trailer beside the S.S. Pontoon (for lack of a better name) - Even Peter said I was getting pretty good at backing up - I surprised myself actually when I backed out of Carols Driveway as Brad and Carol were waving goodbye at the beginning of our Holiday. But I did not do so well at the RR - I did not know there was concrete and a nice stone patio portion to line up your trailer perfectly - all I was worried about was the shrubs and the poop hole sticking out of the ground right where one of LadyBugs wheels was headed - no lights and blacker than black with the ensuing storm and Hubby standing looking pretty with no flash light and well not sure what he was doing cause he was not helping me much...dogs all freaked and I was tired from a long day and lots of laughing with Sue and Ike...
