I’m beginning to wonder if this wind will ever stop. Yesterday we had gusts between 40-45mph and today they say we could reach between 60-70mph……and I believe them. This trailer is a “rockin’ and rollin’”.
Yesterday we spent the day with Bobbie and Jim Chapman playing dominos and drinking a few beverages (check out Bobbie’s blog). It is so good to be able to spend a few more days with them before they have to head back to Colorado and we start to head home. We have to leave this Corp of Engineer park tomorrow (our 14 days are up) and will be heading down to the Hollywood casino with Bobbie and Jim until Sunday. At that time, they have to head to Colorado and we have an appointment with Camping World in Albuquerque on Monday morning to get the hot water heater fixed. For the past few months it will only work on propane, not electric. Hopefully, that will only take a day…..although if they have to order parts, it could take longer…..and then we will start heading home for the summer. We are meeting up with our friends LeRoy and Rose in Tunica, Mississippi on the 14th of May and then will leave there on the 19th-20th for Tom and Peg’s (Jim’s brother) in South Bend, Indiana. Plans are to stay there until the 31st and then to Jeff and Lorie’s in Illinois. We will be bouncing back and forth between the two places all summer.
Bobbie and Jim work for Amazon.com during the holiday season (October thru December 23rd) and had been trying to talk us into doing the same. Well, they finally succeeded and Jim and I sent in our applications to work at the Campbellsville, Kentucky facility and will start to work on October 18th thru December 23rd. We choose to work part-time, 11 a.m to 3 p.m. Monday thru Friday. I believe the pay is $9.90 per hour with a $250.00 per person stay bonus and Amazon pays for all of our camping (including electric). Not a bad deal!!!!! The money we make should pay for our trip to Disney (scheduled for October 3rd-10, 2010 with Jeff, Lorie, Jamie and Jordan) and cover any taxes we will owe to good old Uncle Sam next year.
The wind is still howlin’ and we are still “a rockin’ and rollin’…………”
