China Express and A Slow Weekend At Prairie Pines

Rantoul, IL.

69 deg. partly cloudy, no wind.
Forecast = Partly cloudy with patchy fog. Highs around 90°F. Heat index around 107°F. East southeast wind to 8 MPH.

Linda talked to both  Laura and Joe on the phone yesterday. Talking with them seemed to help her mood a lot and by the time it was time to go out to eat with Mike and Terri, she was feeling a whole lot better. :-)

As planned, at 5:00, Jim, Linda, Mike and Terri hopped into Big RED and headed over to the China Express Restaurant, here in Rantoul.

Jim and Linda are by no means "experts" on Chinese food, but they thought the food was quite good and so did Mike and Terri. ;-)  In fact, Mike thought it was good enough that he went back quite a few times to get more food from the buffet. :-)

It was about 6:30 when Big RED brought the 4 overstuffed people back here to the CG. :-O

The rest of the evening was spent watching the NASCAR race from Bristol, TN on television.

I don't know what's going on here at Prairie Pines Campground. Hardly any campers came in for the weekend!! The only things I can think of is that they have been forecasting very high temperatures and possible storms for this entire weekend and also, next weekend is Labor Day weekend, so maybe the people are just waiting for the holiday weekend to go camping.

Louise says that she's pretty well booked up for that.

Nothing planned for today. It's supposed to be really hot and humid so Jim and Linda probably won't be out and about much. Tomorrow Morning, Mike and Terri are leaving for Northern Illinois for a few days. I'm thinking that they said that they'd be back on Thursday. Also, tomorrow, Linda has that follow-up visit with her primary care doctor over in Fisher, IL. The appointment's not until early afternoon though, so she won't have to get up at the "crack of dawn" this time. ;-)

Did you know that when KFC (Kentucky Fried Chicken) first translated its advertising slogan "finger lickin' good" into Chinese, it came out as "eat your fingers off?"
