We’re those people. You know, the ones who stay home on holidays because they don’t like traffic. It worked out well for us because we ended up being able to sit in our loveseat recliner, along with the dog, and watch the campground 4th of July fireworks through our front window…with the AC going. Pretty smart, right?
This past week has been filled with cleaning out unused items in the motorcoach and putting up fresh produce in readiness for our departure this Wednesday. We’re so looking forward to getting out of this humidity and into cooler weather.
We took the motorcoach in for its annual inspection and we were in and out in 15 minutes and the cost was half of what it costs to get a car inspected. So, all in all, it was quick and painless.
What wasn’t quick and painless was when I opened the pantry door after getting home and getting knocked on the head by a can of tomato paste. To add insult to injury, I then opened the cupboard where our dishes are…only to have the bowls and saucers come flying out and shatter into a zillion pieces. Yes, a zillion pieces. I had glass shards from the front of the motorcoach to the bedroom. I couldn’t believe it. I’m through with Corel dinnerware. This has happened before when a plate has dropped and, then when a ceramic knife was used to cut an apple and instead cut the plate in two. It won’t happen again!
Saturday found us walking through Old Town Montgomery with the kids and grandkids. The town was celebrating being 175 years old. We’ve seen the guys pictured above play before…usually sitting on the porch of one of the antique stores here in town…playing cowboy songs from the 40′s and 50′s. It reminded us of when we were kids and things were simpler and people seemed to like each other better than they do now.
The temperature was 94 degrees but felt like 115 with the humidity. Addie & Luke found the swing on the porch of the Rhinestone Cowgirl. They were hot and the slight breeze from the swing helped just a bit as it gently rocked back and forth. In fact, we all seemed to be mesmerized by the swaying motion…nodding our heads in time, bodies rocking side to side and watching Luke’s eyelids slowly close, then open a bit and drop back closed.
Truth Disclaimer: I have to tell you that we were all ready to fight Luke for room on that swing.
As with all celebrations there were stalls selling crafts, veggies, flags, etc. And, you just know that there was BBQ…Kickin’ Ash Cookers BBQ! We didn’t get any because we all ate Tex-Mex before touring the town. Remember…we’ll be gone from our favorite food for a couple of months and we’re getting it while we can.
We got another confirmation from the RV park where we’ll be staying confirming two adults and one furry child! Maria has been a huge help in answering questions and we’re looking forward to meeting her and her husband.
Next week’s blog will be from Angel Fire and we are excited about getting into cooler weather and seeing the sights. I’m doing subliminal suggestions to the Pilot that we get a hammock to use while in the mountains! We both love New Mexico. Well, not as much as Texas and thank goodness no one’s asked us to choose! Hopefully, we’ll see some of you on the road.
Stay strong and steady with the wind always blowing at your back
as you travel down the road to your next adventure.
Until next week…keep creating Sentimental Journeyz in your RV.
