Friday August 7, 2009-Green Caye RV Park, Dickinson

Another slow day down here. We went to the house and got some more boxes of bank records to shred. Remember, Stella was in the banking business since money was invented and believes in keeping every scrap of records that is ever printed. If it had our name on it, we kept it. What is interesting now is that we have found old records of vacations we took before we had a trailer and RV parks we went to that neither of us could remember. We found cancelled checks from a motel in Manitou Springs Colorado where we stayed in 1990. We didn't pay much more for the motel then than we pay today for an RV site. Of course that was 19 years ago when gasoline was about $1.00 a gallon. We also found a receipt from the Running Branch Marina and RV park. Neither of us remembered this place, but we had proof we had gone there. I looked it up and then instantly remembered that it was at Lake Limestone, near Jewett in Central Texas. My sister and her husband were trying to buy this RV park, but after spending a lot of money on the preliminaries, the deal fell through. .sounds familiar. The same thing happened to Jeremy on our house.....

We went to the grocery store this afternoon. It's amazing how often we have to go to the store for the essential items, and of course, I didn't usually go to the store before we started living in the trailer, so was not aware of this and the prices of groceries. Wow!!

We came back home and hung out here for the rest of the night. It's different in this park. The people here don't hang out in the morning and evening like they do in a resort-style park. Since this is a working park, they pretty much just get up and go to work and come home and stay inside. We still enjoy watching the golfers across the fence from us. I am surprised at how many are our in the heat of the day playing golf. I guess if you are a serious player, a little hot weather doesn't make any difference.I'm just glad its not me that's out there playing in the sun and heat.

So long.
