By 9:00 yesterday, Jim was out of the door and he and Big RED were on their way to Winn Dixie to buy some much needed groceries. The store wasn't very crowded at that time in the morning so the shopping went well and by a little after 10:00 Big RED was backing back into the carport.
About 1:00 Jeff called from Portland OR., Jim explained about Linda's eye problem and asked him if he thought that he and Heather could find time to come here for a visit in November or December?
To Jim's surprise, Jeff was very open to the idea and explained to Jim that this summer was turning out to be a very busy summer for he and Heather and in fact they were both wondering how they were going to be able to get everything done!!! He told Jim that some of Heather's family was coming for a visit, Heather needed to make a business trip and there were 2 or 3 other things that they wanted/needed to do during the summer.
So, , , , , Jeff didn't know if Heather would be able to find time to fly down here, but he would like to come for a visit. In fact, he thought that maybe he could include going to see Mike, (his brother) up in North Carolina at the same time. Jim said that maybe, Jeff could fly to Mike's and we could swing by there on our way back to FL., pick him and Heather up and bring them down here to FL. He could then fly back to OR. from here.
Of course no real plans were made, but there are many options. Jeff will talk to Heather and they'll try to figure out when it would be best for them to come.
So, we will not be going to Oregon this summer. Instead, we'll go, (as previously planned), to Joe's in Virginia Beach, Mike's in Apex, NC., Roland and Louise's in Forest City, NC and then to the RV Dreams Reunion Rally in Marion, NC. Then, instead of heading out to Oregon, we'll take our time and work our way up to Rantoul, IL, where we'll spend most of the summer with a possible trip up to Wisconsin to see Linda's brother, (Glenn), and his family.
Of course while we're in Illinois, Linda will be able to go to see Dr. Gandhi whenever needed to get her eyes checked.
Sounds like a plan to me!!!! ;-)
All of this means that Jim is working on yet another plan for the summer. I think he's up to "Plan G" right now, but who knows, there may be more changes before summer gets here.
I'm sure glad that he's got the big eraser!!! ;-)
A Point to Ponder: Why is a carrot more orange than an orange?
