Dinner with Jodi and Skipper.

Last night our old friend and former neighbor, Jodi and her new puppy Skipper joined us for supper.  It has been many years since we have seen her.  We enjoyed catching up with her and getting to know Skipper.  Skipper is such a sweet little dog.  I know she will make a great companion for Jodi.

Skipper wanted to play with Fred but I think Fred was scared of her. LOL  That funny old Fred.  Sometimes he is afraid of his shadow. 

Laugh everyday.  Happy trails.  Stay safe.

Dinner with Susan and Norman

John was off yesterday so we ran a few errands and stopped off at the chiriopractor's office for much needed adjustments.  John's lower back was bothering him and my neck and hip was bothering me.  We felt much better when we left.   Sure wish chiropractic services were covered by our health insurance.  That would really make me happy.

Last night we had a special treat.  Friends of the family, Susan and Norman invited us for dinner.  They have purchased a motorhome and have enjoyed a few trips in it.  They are looking forward to taking more trips when they are both retired. It was so good to see them and share travel stories.  Thank you Susan and Norman for a wonderful dinner.   We hope to see you down the road real soon. 

Norman and Susan. 

Laugh everyday.  Happy trails.  Stay safe.

Hello out there....

I know it has been quite a while since the last post.  We are still in Mississippi.  John is still working at the Renaissance Mall and our doctor appointments are just about complete. We are always happy to get that chore behind us.

Christmas Day was spent at Bob and Marcy's.  We had a very nice quiet dinner and just chilled out and enoyed the day.  Mom Hatch arrived that afternoon and spent a couple weeks with us.   As the new year approached so did the below freezing weather.  Temperatures actually fell to 15 and 16 degrees a couple of days and a pretty good bit of rain in between.  I was so NOT liking that.   Even though the weather was so nasty we were able to take Mom Hatch out for a spa day.

Looking good Mom. 
Fred received lots of attention from Mom Hatch and, of course, he was eating it up. 

He is so spoiled. 

Last Saturday, Bob, Marcy and John and I traveled to Philadelphia, Mississippi.  We had plans to eat dinner at the Silver Star Casino then drive 30 miles to a place called Sciple's Water Mill Opry for some entertainment.  The Sciple family owns one of the few remaining water powered grist mills in the county that still operates for profit.  The Sciple's also host the Sciple's Water Mill Opry on Saturday nights.  When we arrived at the Water Mill Opry everything was dark and there was a note on the door saying they were closed until further notice due to illness.  After that we returned to the casino and played for a while then went back home. 

This week I had lunch at the Corner Bakery with two of my friends and former co-workers. It was great catching up with them. 

Amy, me and Kay.

Our youngest grandbaby, Shelby will be celebrating her first birthday on February 10th.  Since that falls on a week day her party will be on Sunday, February 8th.  

Shelby is getting so big. 

Fred says hello.

We will be leaving Mississippi in February and making our way to Tuscon, AZ for the Escapees Rally.  Safe travels to all our fellow RVers who are on the road in route to the rally. 

Laugh everyday.  Happy trails.  Stay safe.
