Mom headed to the office yesterday morning to see if they sold the cable we needed to hook up the cable. We knew our satellite would be out all day with the rain. When Mom got back with the new cable, she found Scout trying to order porn. Yep, she had the remote and had turned it to a pay per view site. BUSTED! BOL
|She is not as innocent as she looks. BOL!|
We had quite a bit of heavy rain, but luckily, we had breaks in the rain and the water was able to recede before it started up again. It was a pretty miserable day. Our site has standing water. The ducks had a great time splashing in our yard. We had rugs outside our door, but they sunk in the water. Today, Mom gathered some wood planks from the "junk yard" and put those down and put our rugs on top. We are not sinking down, at least. Management may not approve, but we really don't care. Mom said if they don't like it, they can come up with a solution. This is most expensive place we have stayed and the conditions right now are not good. There are no refunds if we leave, so we are sticking it out. The sun is supposed to come out tomorrow, so it will get better. We may actually like it here when we are not waterlogged.
Mom is back to cooking in the crock pot. All the meals this week have been crock pot meals. She fixed a London Broil steak on Monday. It turned into sandwiches with bacon and cheese on Tuesday. Yesterday, we had chili. Today, is meatballs and spaghetti. Tomorrow will be chili mac and Saturday with be a meatball pizza. It's pretty easy cooking.
It looks like we will have some mail tomorrow. They charge $20 for a mailbox at the office plus $20 for a key (they return that when you return the key) and if you don't get a mailbox, you can't have any packages delivered to you. Dad says it is a racket, but it is easier than going to the post office for our mail. At least the people are nice here. BOL!
The Greyhound Who Is Looking Forward To Laying Out In The Sun Tomorrow
Tuesday, October 14, 2014
Okay, so want to see our campground? We are only allowed to walk to the dog park and out the exit, so here we go.
|This is the entrance/exit. The code to enter is right at the gate, so we are not sure why they even have this. It is not secure.|
|This is the dog park. I don't like it because there are sweetgum trees and the balls get stuck in my feet.|
|Oops, we can't show you this part because we are not allowed to walk that way.|
|This witch is in the neighborhood.|
|Heading back to our place. Don't you love the utility trailer next to us?|
|This is our neighborhood. We have met everyone here already. Everyone is very friendly.|
|It will be interesting to see how much water we have after a full day of heavy rain tomorrow.|
|Our view. See it is not all bad.|
|Dad is looking forward to fishing here.|
|Here we are this morning. Mom watched the bald eagles this morning.|
|Ducks in the site next to us. Luckily, they are walking and not swimming by. BOL!|
Dad is going to work Saturdays while here. He will be off on Sundays and Mondays. Mom is not thrilled about that, but it might work out for the best. We need to have some work done on the RV and it might be easier on a Monday.
We have our reservations made for the winter. We are going to stay near the coast in Alabama at an Escapees park. It is just too far of a drive for us to go back to Houston this year. The park is about 20 miles from the coast. Mom had been thinking about it for a while and one of the other campers in Sanger, TX actually mentioned it to her. He told her it would be a good place for us to spend the winter. She was happy to speak to someone in person about it. She has heard nothing but good things about the park. Our plans are always subject to change, but that is our plan right now.
The Greyhound Who Is Needs A Nap After Playing Tour Guide

|We spent Thursday driving through TX and AR.|
Saturday, was another long driving day. It rained a little. The scenery in Virginia was beautiful. We didn't take any photos because it was so gloomy.
|This was a scary bridge to drive over. Dad said you should have seen it from his view. BOL!|
I think we were pretty close to Dewey. We would have liked to have stopped since the greyhounds were reaching the beach this weekend.
We finally ended up at our destination!
Yep, we are in Maryland. We are about 30 miles from Baltimore. The campground is interesting. The sites are tight. However, they put us in a new section. There are only five of us in our area. We all face the water. Our site is brand new. The downside is that there has been a lot of rain here and our site is muddy....very muddy. We also are next to the storage area. Mom says we need to look straight out the windshield and not to the left at the "junkyard". BOL!
This place has rules. We are talking a book of rules. They have been in business for 50 years and Dad said it looks like they kept adding rules and never deleted any. The one rule we were not aware of until we arrived is that dogs are not allowed to walk through the campground. We are only allowed to walk to the dog park and back. Mom was quite upset about this at first because I LOVE to walk. We are near the dog park, which means our walks are short. She discovered though that most people walk their dogs through the neighborhood which is just outside the park exit. We are near that, too. She doesn't like to walk us through neighborhoods because she said you never know when a loose dog will bother us. We haven't seen any dogs except for the people from our campground walking their dogs in the neighborhood. It seems to be a good solution for us. We walked a mile this morning and turned around because it started raining.
It is a gloomy day here today, so no pictures of our site yet. We are loving the cooler temperatures! Oh, and something really exciting according to Mom...we have EAGLES here. There is a rock in the water that they seem to fish from. We will have to search for their nest. We saw one of them fly from the rock to a tree, but Mom didn't see the nest.
Mom says she needs to put the summer clothes away and bring out the sweatshirts. She said she is going to make chili this week. She has been wanting some, but didn't want to eat it in 95 degree weather.
|No yard here like in Sanger, but we have a patio that we plan to use later this week.|
The Greyhound Who Is Tired After His Three Day Drive

|Old and new name collars|
Not much is going on here. It has been hot. Yesterday, it was 95.
|This is how Scout deals with the hot weather.|
A family of 8 moved in across from us. They have a Class C which is smaller than ours. They set up a tent the other day for the older kids. The kids are home schooled. We can always tell when school is in session because it is really quiet. They seem like a nice family.
The folks surprised us by ordering a pizza Sunday night. Yum....we got to eat the pizza bones.
We have been in the Dallas area for the past month. There has been a lot going on here. We had a huge storm last week, but we were lucky and it missed us. It hit the area that we normally stay really hard though. Mama was glad we didn't move there like she wanted to do. Also, the first Ebola patient that was diagnosed in the US was in Dallas. Sadly, he died this morning. Ebola has been the hot topic here, of course.
We will be leaving Texas soon. Yep, it's true. Where are we headed? The only clue that I am giving is that it will be cooler. BOL!
