Happy 4th of July

We having just been enjoying our time with family and friends, but are ready to hit the road.  Our grandson had his first baseball game Thursday night and they did not come out on top, but they have played every night since then and won.  On the 4th they are off but another game Tuesday, the 5th.  Luckily they have been playing late at 8, so it has a chance to cool down a bit, weather has been hot, hot and hotter.  We will not be here for the finish, unless that happens the 5th, which would mean they lose, and don’t want that.  But this grandma can’t take too much of this, my heart is in my throat with every play.  It was easier with my son, I swear. 

Chuck and our son Glen, had one request for Fathers day and that was they get to play as a team in the member/guest golf tournament at the club Glen belongs to.  Being as they never ask for anything, had to give in.  Yesterday was the practice round and they actually came in first, but it was 75 percent luck, they ham and egged it so well.  The first official day, not so good, but hanging in there.  They finished in 4th place the last day, and they were really happy with that, think Glen had to carry Chuck most of the day though.  But as long as they had a good time the memory will be something they will always have.

We did not stay out at the base this time, there is one park in town and we are shoe horned in a site there.  Pricey, but the drive into town from the base is a good 20 miles, so round trip eats up the gas, so works out about the same. 

We leave here Wednesday heading to Mountain Home AFB, Idaho, where we will meet up with Kevin and Arlene Sullivan. Roaming When We Can  Been a long time since we have seen them, really looking forward to getting together again.  Then on the 18th we will move up to Yellowstone RV park for a month.  McHenery's are also coming in.  Mac and Nette's Road to Retirement

Tomorrow we are going out to the kids for a cookout, which will be fun.  I’m making apple pies, all American apple pie. There are no fireworks any where here, budget cut and all, so we will have a few, safe and sane ones, to make it official. Hope everyone has a wonderful day, and takes a minute to remember the great country we are lucky enough to live in and most of all the people who gave their all for us to be able to do so.  Life is Good.
