Happy 18th Birthday . . .

to our beautiful granddaughter,

                                                      Piper Jean White!

Piper at Chuys 5

It’s hard to believe how fast she grew up. And not only beautiful, but really smart too. Just starting her senior year in High School, she’s been taking college-level AP courses since she was a Junior.

I seem to be fighting off a cold or something so I didn’t get up until almost 11 this morning after not going to bed until 2 am and then tossing and turning all night. But after hot coffee and a cinnamon swirl bagel, I felt back among the living.

A little later Al Hesselbart of the RV Motor Home Hall of Fame came by to visit and ask about some problems they were having with their computer network. I told him I’d run by there this afternoon and take a look at their problems. While Al was still here, Dennis Hill of the RV Driving School came to chat. He and his wife Carol did the Alaska thing this summer and will be at Nick Russell’s Gypsy Journal Rally in Celina, OH later this month.

After Jan fixed lunch I headed over to the RV Museum about 1:30 and spent a couple of hours looking over their setup. I’ll probably go back tomorrow.

A little after 6, Nick and Terry, Tom and Barb Westerfield, Jim and Chris Guld of Geeks on Tour, and Jan and I headed over to North China Buffet for dinner. The more, the merrier. And as usual when you get this many RV’er’s together, loudness and hilarity will ensue.

Getting back a little after 8 pm we put in a Happy Birthday call to Piper, but she was probably at work so we left a voicemail. We really look forward to seeing her and her parents in November.

A few minutes later I went outside to get these shots of the sunset. I don’t know why, but Elkhart has some really great sunsets.

  1. Greg, it’s being so close to those Mac’s that’s making you feel bad. 🙂

  2. Tom,

    Yeah, I can smell the brimstone from here and it’s making me nauseous.


  3. Jan & Greg,
    You’re granddaughter is more beautiful that the Indiana sunsets.

  4. Carol,

    Thanks. We certainly think so.
