A Wild and Wooly Night . . .

Well, they said we were in for some thunderstorms last night, but that was an understatement.

During the night we had high winds, very heavy rain, lightning, and hail, sometimes all at the same time. And that all prefaced another cold front coming through.

Today’s high was 83°, but the low tonight is supposed to be 49. Tomorrow is 68 and 44, with Friday at 67 and 45.

But with no rain forecast, it really should be pretty nice. At least no AC needed for a few days.

Later in the morning, Jan and I changed to the sheets on our bed. We really like these Sateen sheets we bought earlier this year. In fact we liked them so much we bought a 2nd set.

They’re a high thread count and very soft. They’ve also held up very well as far as wear and tear goes. They still look brand new.

I spent most of the afternoon working on some computer stuff, before getting in some nap practice.

I think I’ve about got the art of napping down pat, but probably need a few more months of practice to hone my skills.

About 4pm Jan and I drove over to pick up Dave and Lynn Cross for dinner. They had never been to Mancino’s Pizza, our favorite local place, that Nick and Terry Russell Introduced us to.

Not only are their pizzas really good, but also their Sammy Bread, which is a homemade cheesy garlic bread, is great.

We always get the XL Meat Grande pizza which has pepperoni, sausage, ham, bacon, ground beef & a special blend of cheese. Like we do at Grimaldi’s, the XL gives us plenty to take home for later.

We’ve known Dave and Lynn for 5 or 6 years but this is the first time we’ve really had a chance to sit down and talk. Turns out Dave and I have a lot of common interests, including flying, and both having worked in the aerospace field.

Coming back to the park, we spent an hour or so at their 5th wheel with Lynn serving us pie for dessert. Really good.

We got back to the rig about 7:30 where I started looking at problems with a laptop. It’s pretty new, but I’m wondering if it’s not memory problem. I think I may have some spares around here to substitute. We’ll see.

    Hi Greg
    you are parked next to the “professional nap taker”. Good vibes are coming to you.



  2. Greg, we really enjoyed our time with you and Jan last night.. Good pizza too.

  3. George,

    It certainly does seem to be rubbing off on me.

    I’ve taken more naps here than I’ve taken in the last several months.

  4. Dave and Lynn,

    We really enjoyed it too.

    Stay Safe.

  5. We had almost 3 inches of rain just south of Indianapolis. Lightning, wind and quarter size hail. Glad it is over as we are heading into Ohio today.

  6. Nan and John,

    Drive safe.
