Maggie, that does sound like a terrific idea...a rally on Oregon coast. I would love a chance to meet you and some others I see on the forum. We shall see what the year brings. The Oregon coast is a place I want to visit. God bless. Evelyn.

Please join us, Evelyn.

If you don't have a trailer, I'm sure you can find a little campground cabin rental or a Mom&Pop motel to put you up nearby.


Left Lily with my son this am....she was distressed, tail tucked under her behind, didn't want me to go bye-bye without her .....got my hair trimmed, had lunch with my SIL and her oldest son, then.....got on I-80 into Iowa and settled into a COE campground along the mighty Mississippi for the night.

I seldom do major highways, but sometimes they are simply the only reasonable way to get from one point to another.

Will see Doug's mom in the am, hopefully get into the cemetery if it is not too wet, then on to the Amanas to meet friends for a long weekend. Looking forward to that.

Old shoe kind of friends, the very best kind.


Maggie

Then Monday we take this Airstream for MOT not so far away to a Garage where staff are not afraid of it. Whilst were at it we shall meet a friend in the Parrot Friendly Village Pub .. In couple weeks were off to Old Warden to watch Vintage Planes .. Hans intends to see all the flying events before his nuisance of an operation .. but thats on hold as well until we see what going on with Jenny ... were all falling apart ! .. Last Airshow we watched was a nasty do .. 11 people killed .. not sure if you saw on USA news .. Anyway .. in the morning Hans is treating me to a special day as tomorrow we have a whole day of sunshine .. I'm too weary this evening but will post pictures of Crumpet .. Muffin and the camp site when able .. Lili Hans Crumpet & Muffin xx

Hey there.....I invited her to drop in and post here!

No need to leave, she would love to hear from all who miss her.

Happy anniversary, Lili and Hans!

Have a great day, and please post pics.

This is for you, Lili.

Hello Wall

I love that movie, used to have a copy...went the way of my DVD. Our airstream hasn't even left the dealer yet...awaiting the tow vehicle. My husband and I are NEWBIES but are reading everything we can lay our I pads on. A few weeks ago I had no idea about black tanks, gray tanks, dump stations. Fort Stevens is about 100 miles away and is on my list of places to camp out on he first year....will probably stay in Oregon for our maiden voyages. we are so excited

I think, Gail, that it must fall on you to pick a location for a Shirley Valentine rally.

Sometime after Labor Day, not too far from that into September. Deal?


I am settled into the RV Park in Amana, Iowa, awaiting my friends arrival.

I have free wifi here so just may try to find that movie online.


Maggie

Maggie, thank you, and I do hope to get to Oregon for the 2016 Oregon rally. I most certainly will have my adorable BAMBI 16' Sport. The question will be ....do I feel comfortable in driving the long trip from Denver to Oregon all alone. It will depend on my physical health status at the time. (Currently experiencing some pesky health issues, hopefully repairable).

September, after Labor Day sounds nice...no crowds, cooler temps. I've told my daughter that I still want to see the Oregon sea coast, even if I need to fly and go the B&B route. I do prefer to be in BAMBINO, of course. The rally and comraderie of like souls will be a very nice bonus to the trip.
Hope you find your Mom in law comfortable. I'm sure she will appreciate your visit.

Poor Lily, sad you had to leave her behind. Don't we wish we could let them understand they've done nothing wrong and we will be back soon? When I leave mine, they are so sad, then, when I return...either give me 'attitude' or cover me with 'doggie hugs' and sloppy wet kisses! Deb tells me they usually are very forlorn during my absence...and that makes her sad for them.
Safe travels. God bless. Evelyn.

I hope you can come, Evelyn, one way or another.

I did not see Doug's mom, as when I got to the nursing home this morning I discovered she had been discharged two weeks ago.

A quick call to Doug's sister informed me she was moved to the nursing home closer to her, as they had an opening. Sandy had sent a mass text, my phone for some reason does not get these, although individual texts have never been a problem.

I hadn't told Sandy I was dropping by, she didn't realize I didn't know, I just saw Louise a month ago, so did not backtrack 45 minutes to the new location. Sandy says she has good days and others where she wants to sleep all day, but is overall the same.

She has fallen several times trying to get to the bathroom on her own, when staff don't respond to her buzzer. I am very concerned about that, and shared this and some suggestions with Sandy, who will do whatever is needed, I am sure. Hospice is still involved, of course, so they will also have some input.

At any rate.....may stop on the way back, but doubt it as there are a few things needing my attention at home. I will see her in October, for sure.

I hired my sons two boys to give Lily a walk and bit of a run every day while I am gone, and will do the same when I am in Greece. At 10 and 12, they run all the time, so this is not a problem, and the two boys are strong enough to handle her should she spy a squirrel and take off.

My son sent this photo of the three kids and Miss Lily last night at a nearby detention basin.

A fellow forums member emailed this to me this morning....is it not perfect?

I can't make it bigger, but try to read it, it is good.

Sorry you missed Mom in law. Next time. In photo, can't see much, but, can imagine the fun she's having! This gives her an opportunity to know of the fun she will have in your absence on your trip to Greece. God bless. Evelyn.
