Tuesday Oct. 30 Hello from Park Sierra. I have not written any posts because we have mostly been doing "housekeeping" type chores and I know you aren't interested in that. We have washed and waxed both the car and RV, steam cleaned the RV carpet, cleaned up our lot, and had lots of doctor appointments, lab tests, etc. We are both doing very well, physically, and are grateful for that, when we see people here at our park who are sidelined from traveling because of poor health. Of course, there have also been numerous social events and interactions in which we have been eager participants. We enjoy the Friday social hour held at the clubhouse every week, and have reconnected with many Park Sierra friends. Other friends took us out for a delicious Mexican lunch at El Cid Restaurant in Oakhurst for our 4th wedding anniversary which was Oct. 25.

10/12/12 Once again, I can't seem to get the pictures to line up correctly with the dialogue, so you will have to figure it out yourself as you read along!!! We have been back on our RV lot at Park Sierra since Tuesday night, and have so many necessary chores backed up that I can barely find time for this update. Considering that we left the family farm in Illinois only 10 days before arriving here, I think we made it in record time. Especially when you consider the visits we did on the way. First we stopped in Denver to see my twin sister, Marsha. Here is a picture of us together:

10/1/12 As most of you are aware, Elaine is the youngest of 6 sisters who all grew up on a farm in Illinois, outside of Rockford. Periodically they all get together, since these days they are all living in different cities. This year they had their reunion at the old Cannell farm where they were raised and where Georgeanne Daly, the 3rd sister, raised her family and still resides there. Elaine and I had just returned from our European cruises, and had left our RV on the farm while we were gone. So we wanted to help make sure that all the work didn’t fall on Georgeanne, just because the gathering was at her house. We did most of the cooking and provided most of the appetizers. The pictures that follow are mostly of interest to family members, but I will try to provide info as to who is in each one.
