We're all getting excited about our up-coming trip to Wisconsin for Linda's family reunion. Reservations have been made, where deemed necessary and we'll be leaving here Monday morning to head up there.
Our first stop will be the tire shop up in Ashkum, IL to have Nora's tire checked out, (and probably replaced), and then we'll head over to Utica, IL, (where there's a park that accceptes the Passport America card for a 50% off discount), for one night. From there, we'll head up into Wisconsin, probably staying in the Wisconsin Dells area for a few nights, before heading a little further North for the reunion.
The reunion is in Warrens, WI, which is a little North of Toma, Wisconsin and will start on Thursday and last until Monday morning. It's located at a Jellystone Park complex and while we'll be staying in the Campground, the rest of the family will stay in one of the large Lodge vacation villas in the "Three Bears Lodge" area of the complex.
After the reunion, we'll head back down here to Rantoul, getting back before the Labor Day weekend traffic begins.
Jim has been trying to figure out a way to mount a new flag on Nora and he finally decided on a way to do it. Nora doesn't have a ladder on the rear, so he couldn't mount the flag there as he's done with some of our Motor homes, so he had to come up with another idea. he finally decided what to do and now we have a nice large flag mounted on the front of Nora.
I think I like it!! :-)
Today, both Linda and Jim have eye doctor's appointments. Linda to have a treatment on her left eye and Jim to get a scan of his eyes to make sure there's no damage from the glaucoma. Both procedures will be done at Dr. Gandhi's office and the results of Jim 's scan will be sent to Dr. Anderson who he will see again right after we return from the family reunion.
A Point to Ponder: If you woke up breathing, congratulations! You have another chance!
