IT was good to visit with BigDog yesterday. Wish we could be there to visit and enjoy the company of each of you but until I have a better idea of what is going on with my health we are not straying far from home. This will only be the second one we have missed and we hope its the last, we really enjoy the company of each of you and enjoy the time we have to sit and visit....Bob and Sue

RVing since 1970
Finally got the MH back from the shop and started loading it for the trip to the rally.Gonna take the short way by way of Vancouver and Portland to see the GGS and my aged aunt,Roma,then head for Maryhill state park for a nite to pick up a local wine and then head for Patterson and Columbis Crest Winery and up 221 to Prosser.
We're looking forward to the trip and seeing all of youse folks again.
The weather is lookin' as if it's gonna be really comfortable over there,but right now they're having freeze warnings for the nite-times.
Laura says she almost has our trailer packed with everything we need, and that's a good thing considering she also says she'e running out of places to put everything. She even wants to weigh it on our way over to see how loaded it is. Now if she wants to weigh it, that worries me.
It's going to be a busy weekend. Wedding to shoot tomorrow, Mother's Day Sunday, finish packing Monday, then head out Tuesday. Can't wait!
Heading out this morning to take part in the re-dedication of the Point-no Point lighthouse up in Hansville. A couple of years ago,Kitsap county parks received a $100,000 grant from the National Preservation group to rehab the lighthouse. It's been modernized and all returned to what it was in the pre-forties and they really did a great job of it.All of the work was done by the National Lighthouse society and the docents of the lighthouse.It is still an actual working lighthouse,you can rent rooms there for the night and it is the home of the National Kighthouse Society.
Getting really really ready for the rally.

I bought diesel at Coburg at that Pacific Pride station there and it only cost me $3.97 and that was about the 19th of April.
Yes Laura,I yelled at you as I went by,but you made not have heard me as I was on the highway. Awesome day at No Point as the mountains were out along with the sun and very little wind. It was really nice to see all the young families showing up as we were going home about 11:30. Must have been a couple of hundred on the beach and more coming.
Hi folks - thought I would drop in this morning to say Howdy.
We have been volunteering since Sept 2011 except for Nov-Dec and are now sited at Charbonneau Campground at the Ice Harbor Dam for volunteering for the Corps. We hope to get up to Prosser while y'all are there probably on Saturday (Plan A).
Sure miss seeing y'all and glad we made it last year. Just checked in this morning to see what y'all have been up. Sounds like it will be a fun Rally this year (always is).
As to Gr-Grandparents and the age we are ... well just to let you know we found out real early that it just kinda slips up on you when you are looking the other way ... We have 12 grandkiddos and 4 greats.
