Saturday July 4, 2009-Dickinson

Tommy and Susan invited us to come up to Rayford for the day to celebrate Tommy's birthday and to see the fun at the park for the 4th of July. They had called Ricky and Dee to come along to celebrate with us also. We got there a little before noon, and went inside their motorhome where it was nice and cool. We had a couple of drinks and some snacks and Dee called and said they would be arriving in a couple more hours from Canyon Lake where they had gone to visit Rick's dad. We stayed in the MH until Tommy had to go out to a dunking booth to take photos of all the staff including Gwen and Billy getting dunked. It was great fun watching them fall into the water and the kids that were throwing the balls had a great time.

There was a Foretravel motorhome from Motorhomes of Texas in Nacogdoches that came down for a show this weekend. I went inside it but was not all that impressed. It is a 2007 model and looks brand new, but it's still a high dollar ($229,000) coach and I'm not interested at all.

We came back to the motorhome and Tommy fixed us some hamburgers and hot dogs for our dinner. As usual, the food was delicious and there was plenty of it. Food just tastes so much better when fixed outdoors on a grill,

When we got through eating, we went outside and sat around talking about our upcoming trip to Dolores Colorado in September. We are all looking forward to going to get out of this Texas heat.

We came on home and made very good time through Houston, arriving here in about an hour. There was little traffic on the highway and luckily, no accidents to put up with.

Our television is out. I had turned it off early this morning, and now it won't come back on. When you push the remote control button to turn on the television nothing happens, both on the Dish network remote and the standard Samsung remote. I put up a post on the Heartland Owner's Forum and got some instant replies, but none of the suggestions worked. Another suggestion was to contact Samsung and have then send someone out to look at it. That will be my project for tomorrow or Monday.

So long.

Jay, first, can you turn the TV set on at the TV? Could it be remote batteries?

Glad to hear you were at Rayford for the 4th. I know Barbara Spade was there with a few friends. I'm still recovering from the $48 a night over Memorial Day! We've paid a high of $30 at Addison Oaks and a low of $17 at Hickory Hollow. I think our average of $25 a night will stand. Ted got diesel for $2.09 yesterday. Whoopee! Don't know what South Dakota will bring.

Good luck with the house. We miss you not being along. All is going well.
