Where's vanilla? Unlike Waldo, he sometimes hides in plain sight. We left the Island mid-morning and made the first twenty miles homeward! This is where we settled back in for an indeterminate period of time (though I am guessing not less than three weeks.)
The deal is I have no intention of returning to Winter Wonderland. I plan not to winterize the RV before October. Once a year is quite enough. In fact, I was talking with Chester Wednesday afternoon. Chester is from Muncie, Indiana. He has been here every time we've been here, and many more times as well. He told me he bought his current RV, which is a gorgeous Class A, seven years ago and it has never been winterized! How does he manage this? He leaves Indiana in October at latest, and preferably in September and will not arrive back in Muncie until May. Now there's a plan.
This is an auspicious day for our friend Richard Prout. It is his birthday. The number is a multiple of ten. He is older than I. Happy birthday, Dick!
Dick and his wife, Heide, make it possible for us to stay away from winter, for they do stick with it. They take care of our mail and our plants, and look out for the property. And while we appreciate all they do for us, we care more for the fact that they are good, kind, and loving friends.
