05.20.15 Bits and pieces

1654376_826105987457633_4996957998919480494_nWednesday, May 20, 2015 – Today is our getting ready to travel day.  We’ll be leaving here at day break tomorrow if Roy has his way.  Since he’s the driver he’ll probably have his way!

Here’s an update on some bits and pieces of our RV life!

Since the Memorial Day weekend is coming up there is a lot of activity going on at the park we’re in, Angler’s Holiday Mountain Resort in Mountain View, Arkansas.  Grass cutting, untying and putting in place all the picnic tables that were secured during the flooding.  The swimming pool is finally open after days of cleaning and prepping.  It’s too cool today for us to take advantage of that.

We have more than enjoyed our stay here.  The serenity and quiet during the time we were the only RV here was quite welcome.  People have been arriving each day and it’s still a wonderful place to stay.  It is one of the Coast to Coast parks that is also open to the public so if your travels take you near here I’d highly recommend staying here.

Our granddaughter Madisyn graduated from Kindergarten last week and has been accepted in the accelerated madisyn k gradprogram at the elementary school she will attend next year!  Here’s her precious graduation picture.  We love this little girl sooooo much!

Since I shared the amazing marriage proposal between my son and his girlfriend I think I need to tell you that they are no longer engaged.  I won’t elaborate, just leave it at that.

There was another flash flood advisory here this week.  The river rose quite a bit covering the rocks and almost covering the bridge.  Still not nearly as high as it did last week, whew!!!

We’ve been without Verizon service since we’ve been here as we are down in a 1610767_772414849471661_6821691071225407594_nvalley.  I’ve been told that ATT doesn’t have service here either.  We can only talk when we are in town which has posed an interesting challenge but we’ve gotten through it.  Roy looked into Hangout on our phones which may be the answer when we’re in situations like this.  If any of ya’ll use Hangout please let us know about it and how it works for you.

One of the calls I needed to make in town was to return a call from Dr. Greiner’s office (eye doctor) to get the results of the OCT test I took before leaving Hammond.  My optical nerve is in good condition!!!!  Yay!

We encountered a first in our travels when I heard from the next RV park that we’re going to that they don’t take reservations.  They have a first come, first serve policy.  It’s Terra 1901663_10152793302612556_8002597669606840967_nStarr Park in Checotah, Oklahoma.  I’ve never heard of that before.  They said they have plenty of open spots so we should be okay.  I sure hope so!

I think that’s all I need to update on and this will be our last post from Arkansas. As always I hope that more and more of you will join us on this unbelievable ride living in an RV full time!

Our next post should come from the wonderful state of Oklahoma!

Ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear!
