A New Family Member and Putting Faces to Names

Before I share the events of our day, we have great news to share! Charles Jacob Simmons arrived this morning at 3:30am in Albany, NY!! He is our fourth grandnephew and we are so excited that he and his mom and dad, LuAnn and Eric, are doing great! When we get pictures, I'll be sure to share them with you. I just know he's gorgeous without even seeing him! :) Welcome to the family, CJ!

Today was a pretty typical Thursday - I went to Jubilee Pickers for our weekly jam session. Then, Ruth, Pat and I went out to lunch. We had a great deal - all you can eat pizza and a salad for $6.00! And actually, you can only eat one "slice" of this pizza because it's about a quarter of a whole pizza. You order it custom made with all the toppings you want. It was pretty darn good pizza, too.

Early this evening Randy & I took Blackie for a walk. We went to meet some folks who had come into the park earlier this week. Jim & Linda travel in a motorhome named, Myrddin (pronounced "Murthen") and have a blog that is written from Myrddin's point of view. You ought to check it out sometime: Myrddin's Travels.

I'm sure I've said this before, but this is one of the neat things about RVing. You get to meet so many people. With the technology out there, so many of us write blogs journaling our travels. We read each other's blogs and usually don't ever get to meet one another. But, every once in awhile, we get lucky and are able to put faces to the names we've read so much about. Meeting Jim & Linda gets added to those times we've been lucky. We're hoping to get together with them again before they leave next week.

After our walk, we stopped by the neighborhood campfire. Randy went on back to the rig, taking Blackie with him. I stayed for awhile to share in the laughter and conversation. We are so fortunate to be part of such a great group of folks! I have such mixed emotions about leaving next week!

Tonight finds us in our usual positions - relaxing in our respective recliners. :)
