They Don't Understand

Rantoul, IL

68 deg. rain, NW wind @ 11 mph.

Forecast = High temp. 81 deg. Partly cloudy in the morning, then clear. NW wind @ 10 to 20 mph.

Received a comment on yesterday's post from Rod, wanting to know if we would lose our site here in Rantoul when we head up to Kankakee on Monday?

Well, yesterday morning, Jim went over and told Louise what our plans were and she said that it was not a problem and that our site would be here when we got back, and in fact, she said that if Jim wanted to leave his bicycle locked to the picnic table while we're gone, that would be OK too.

Louise and Paul have been really good to us throughout the years, and that's one of the main reasons we keep coming back here year after year. : )

Oh, I want to share with you, a kind of strange e-mail that Jim and Linda received from their telephone company yesterday. This is what it said.

"Because your safety is our top concern, here are some safety tips to help you prepare in case a hurricane affects Sioux Falls".

Then the e-mail went on to list the things that you should do to prepare for the storms.

Now, the last time I checked, there weren't too many hurricanes going through the Sioux Falls Area.  I guess phone companies just don't understand our traveling lifestyle and the fact that we have a phone number that was issued in Florida but have the billing address in Sioux Falls, SD. ; )

My guess is that the e-mail was generated by a computer and sent to everyone who has a phone number with a FL prefix.

Last night, Jim and Linda were talking about going to the grocery store today, so they may do that. If not, I'm sure that they'll start getting Bobbie T and CLT ready to travel. We've been here a month already so there's quite a bit of "stuff" that needs to be packed away. ; )

Actually, it shouldn't take too long to get ready to travel, but after you've been someplace for a while, it seems like its going to be a big job. ; )

Did you know that on this date in 1920 - The U.S. Post Office Department ruled that children may not be sent by parcel post?
