Blocking The Slide and Dinner At Paul And Louise's

Rantoul, IL.

66 deg. hazy, no wind.
Forecast = 86 deg. partly cloudy, 30% chance of rain, S. wind @ 5 to 10 mph.

Yesterday morning, Jim ran Bobbie T's dinette slide in and tried to figure out how he was going to block it so it can't creep out while we're traveling. After some trial and error, with the help of some boards and 2X4s, he thinks he has found a way to hold it in the retracted position without damaging the wood trim or the aluminum frame.

I sure hope so, we don't need that slide coming out while we're traveling down the road!!! :-O

Even more RVs came into the park yesterday. Evidently, they had someplace else to be for the 4th and then came out here for the rest of the Holiday weekend. There's also more kids here now than there was at the beginning of the long weekend. They all seem to be well behaved though, cause I haven't heard any complaints at all.

Yesterday evening, Jim and Linda were invited over to Paul and Louise's for dinner, along with a few other people. Louise had pork chops, baked beans and potato salad. Laurie, one of the other ladies, brought some raw vegetables and a green bean casserole and Linda took a desert.

They ate outside under the awning and in the gazebo and then sat and talked until the bugs started getting really bad. (Which was around 8:00 PM).  

Don't really know what's happening today. I know that sometime before we leave here on Monday, Jim and Linda want to go to the grocery store to pick up a few items. Also, both of them will be working on getting everything ready to travel.

Did you know that on this date in 1699 - Captain William Kidd, the pirate, was captured in Boston, MA, and deported back to England?
