We finally got on the road. I rode with Mom. It was a long drive due to construction. It took us about an hour and a half. We finally arrived at the campground. Mom was disappointed to learn that we didn't get the site that she was told was ours. We ended up in a site next to a very messy neighbor.
The last time we were here, corporate was here and the managers were nervous. I guess some changes have been made. There used to be blue tarps on many of the campers. They must have said no blue tarps because now they have gray ones. Some of the messy neighbors that were here are gone, but new ones have moved in. There is a wait list to get in and Dad said they could easily clean out the messy people and fill the place up with new people. They could enforce the rules, but they just don't do it. Mom gets so aggravated when rules are not enforced. However, she is violating the rules herself. She put our lawn chairs, garden flag and wind chime out on our site. Those items are against the rules. She is not worried since most people have those things plus junk and no one seems to care. We haven't complained because we don't want to make enemies. Management definitely knows they are messy and allows it.
|Breaking the rules.|
Mom took me squirrel hunting today.
|This guy was a lot of fun.|
The Greyhound Who Loves Squirrels

We have seen a number of people walking their dogs who don't stop long enough for their dogs to do their business. The dogs have to do it on the run. The people don't stop to clean up after their dogs either. There is a trail of their poo across our site. Grrrr!
|Just me being handsome.|
The folks went to Win Star World Casino for Thanksgiving. They have a buffet that Mom wanted to check out. Last year, they ate at a steak place on Thanksgiving, but had the turkey dinner. Mom said she would not make that mistake again. It definitely didn't feel like Thanksgiving. There were no "seconds". Mom said she wasn't even going to eat turkey this year. However, this place was so packed that she got stuck in the turkey line. She ended up eating Thanksgiving food and it was good. She also had Mexican and Chinese. She couldn't decide if she wanted pumpkin pie or pecan pie and discovered they had her favorite dessert, Tres Leches (three milk cake). She had that and it was delicious.
The folks decided to play the penny slots. Mom put a dollar in and she won the first two spins. Dad told her to bet it all and she ended up winning $18. She said that was enough and she cashed in her winnings. No, she is not a gambler. BOL!
On the way home, the folks had quite the surprise. A hawk crashed into their windshield. The speed limit was 75, but they were probably doing 65. Mom saw the hawk coming at them and she closed her eyes. She then heard "BAM". She opened her eyes to see that the windshield was broke.
It really was hard getting a good picture of the windshield. This was Mom's side. Dad's side also had a crack going across it. They checked online and were able to get an appointment at Safelite to have the windshield replaced on Friday.
On the way home from Safelite, they stopped for lunch at Razzoo's Cajun Cafe. It has been a while since we have posted any food porn, so here you go:
|Fried pickles - excellent|
|Cheeseburger, fries and hush puppies - very good. Mom wanted alligator, but they didn't have it.|
|Catfish, rice and beans|
|This is the entrance to our current campground. Have you ever seen such a wide street for a campground? It is because there is a RV dealership here.|
The Greyhound Who Didn't Get Any Thanksgiving Goodies This Year
Tuesday, November 15, 2016
We are now in our new location. Any guesses where we are?
|We passed through St. Louis.|
|We experienced a freezing morning on Sunday. Our waterlines froze. No showers for the folks.|
|This rest area in Missouri is interesting. It looks like a little town.|
We stayed at a campground in Oklahoma City that we stayed at a few years ago. It was demolished by a tornado and has been re-built. Mom said it was eerie to be there knowing a tornado had destroyed it.
|Okay, this is a big clue. BOL!|
We have been to this area before but the last time we stayed at the campground with the alpacas. We are about an hour from Dad's work, so we are trying to get a place closer. We are on wait lists because everything is booked up. This is not really a winter destination, but there are a lot of claim adjusters dealing with storm damage from earlier this year. We were in this area when we had our hail damage.
|Our driveway is long. Most are not level.|
|Mom and I enjoyed the warm weather this morning.|
|I even enjoyed the sun for a while.|
It is nice to be parked for a while. It looks like we will all be together for the holidays and winter this year. 😄
The Greyhound Who Is Happy To Be Parked Again

|We sat outside for a while on Monday since it was nice out.|
|The parking lot looks sad with all the motor homes gone.|
The rigs are brought back to their sites after 3 p.m. each day. Sometimes it is after 4 p.m. We usually talk to our tech to see what has been accomplished. Our rep meets with us in the morning to go over what is scheduled for the day. It is very organized.
|Our new microwave.|
|Tuesday, listening to the class.|
|I moved off the rug.|
|Back on the rug.|
The customer lounge is really nice.
|There I am. See me?|
The Greyhound Who Likes Living At Entegra
Saturday, November 5, 2016
|Sometimes you have to look up.|
|It can be very interesting.|
|Any guesses what had my attention for five minutes and made my body tremble?|
|Yep, it is a squirrel.|
|Do you think Mom over packed?|
|Checking to make sure my stuff has been packed.|
We drove to the body shop and waited inside while they put the finishing touches on our home.
|I was a perfect guest, don't you think?|
Finally, it was time to head to Entegra. We will be there for a week getting other repairs made. I am a little disappointed as I thought we would be in a campground. There are other rigs here. We are actually in a parking lot! Mom and Dad knew, but I didn't.
|Ahhh....it is nice to be home again.|
|Here I am checking out my site.|
|Here are the other campers.|
|My couch!!!! I love my couch!|
