Friday July 15, 2011-Timber Ridge RV Resort

I'm going to start today's entry a little earlier because I have some things on my mind and I want to write them down before I forget them. I guess Stella's CRS syndrome is contagious.

First, I want to bring you up to date on our trip. If you remember, I bought my new truck back in November, and already have 15,850 miles on it. At this rate, I'll be out of warranty before the two year mark.

Out trip log shows that we've got 4885 miles on this trip so far and we're not even halfway through. We've got a long way to go before we stop traveling this summer. We plan to go over into Canada next week, so in the next three months, we will have been in three countries, Canada. the United States of course, and Mexico. We are planning to go to Mission and then over to Mexico in October for me to have some dental work done. Does this make us some kind of international travelers?

The next thing I want to talk about is what is happening to us. I just heard on Fox News about a new California law that will make the teaching of "gay history" mandatory. Why must children be subjected to this? I don't have a gay phobia and have known and worked with gay people for most of my life but I don't want children told or taught the glorification of the gay lifestyle. We are beset with bad weather, storms, floods etc. Does anyone remember the Bible book Revelations? Do you remember what it said about the last day and the bad things that will happen? My good friend, Pastor Buddy Riddle, preached a little sermon on this exact subject at the Heartland rally and I wish I could write down everything he said. Basically he said that we all had better get our business straight because as he put it, not only are we in the last inning of earth, he believes that we are in overtime.

I'll get off my soapbox now.

I had promised Stella that I would take her to one of the casinos near Traverse City, so today we went to the Turtle Creek casino. I'm not lucky and don't really care for gambling, so I took my I-Phone and found a place to sit down and Stella went to play the slots. We agreed to meet a couple of hours later and then go eat at the seafood buffet that was being served here today but we learned that the buffet didn't open until 4:30. I went back to my chair and Stella continued to play until she called me on the phone because the line was starting to form into the restaurant. We had a pretty good meal and I enjoyed the people watching around us. It was a good day, and Stella made a nice donation to the Indian tribe.

We came back home and sat outside until about 8:30 when the skeeters started to bite. We called a couple of friends just to stay in touch and of course, to brag a bit about being able to sit outside in the coolness while they sweltered in Houston. Tomorrow will be our last full day here.

So long.
