Our home on wheels

In the words of Frank Barone, "holy crap", its been months since I have updated this blog. Some writer I am for cripes sake.

It's Monday morning and I am sitting in my trusty blue recliner. I am recovering from our first rally for the Cenois prairielanders. Paul and I, and Gay and Bud Leezer were hosts. We went to New Salem Campground adjacent to Lincoln's New Salem Historical Village in Petersburg. Nice place, very woodsy and large spots. We brought the rig out early Wednesday so we could get near the pavallion for the group. Upon leaving, I was starting down the stairs of the motorhome, and my shoe caught the top step's carpet and down the stairwell I went. Slammed into the door which thankfully was shut, or I would have landed out on the pavement. I am lucky I didn't break my tush. Jammed my right shoulder AGAIN and pulled a muscle in my neck. By Thursday I couldn't move my head. Sigh. It just never ends.

We had a great weekend and it was great to see everyone and catch up on what had happened since we all met last December. We had a breakfast potluck and feasted on yummy casseroles, fruit and coffecakes. We normally do the potluck on Saturday evening, but we decided to do a traditional All American BBQ with hotdogs, hamburgers and all the goodies that go along with it. It was followed up with a beautifully decorated Anniversary cake that we had specially made for the Cenois Prairielanders. It was decorated in red, white and blue and had a wonderful motorhome across the top of the cake. It was delicious. (I had a very very small slice and only had the diabetic shakes for about 45 minutes later that night, LOL!)

We are getting the rig ready for our trip east to Cumberland Maryland and Boston, Mass.

I promise to update daily with our preparations and tales of adventure.
