We traveled another 320 miles to get here yesterday. Most of the trip was made on I-10, and just a little ways on I-12, to bring us from Baton Rouge, LA. to Slidell. It was an uneventful trip till the middle of I-12. There was a big rig that had a bad accident and blocked two of the 3 lanes. We were stuck for about 45 minutes, and my Hubby is not a very patient man, but we made it all safe and sound, with nerves just a little rattled.
The park we are staying in is called Pine Crest RV Park, and as you will be able to tell by the photos, it is nice, but we are stacked in here like sardines. Very tight fit at that. We are worried about getting back out of here. We have full hook-ups with free wifi, no cable, but we are picking up all kinds of stations on our antenna. The rate was $62.35 for 2 nights with Good Sam’s discount.
I know it doesn’t show in the pictures, but Slidell had a tornado hit here just before we arrived. Yesterday there was water everywhere and the ladies in the office told me at 9:00 yesterday morning the rain was so bad that all traffic was just stopped. Luckily no one was killed, but a lot of people lost their power.
My nephew called last night to say they would love to meet us tonight for a meal. His mother is here from Tell City, Indiana, and has offered to keep the kids for them. They are sending us an email later with the restaurant directions and name. Since he had to work so late, I didn’t want him to have to come all the way over here. It will be nice talking to him when we are not so filled with emotions about his Dad’s passing.
Donnie and I just got back from having lunch at Waffle House. This is the first time eating there since Uncle Boone’s death. That was his favorite morning place. A lot of memories came flooding back, and I think that was a good thing. I sure miss my big brother.
I was talking to Gypsy, by way of emails, last night, and she reminded me that it has been a while since I wrote anything about Rusty, or added any pictures of him. To start with his potty training is going very well. Since the bed mess up there have been no more accidents. He is acting funny though, and I don’t know if other dogs do this or not. For about the last week or 10 days he has really started to notice things more around him, and he is afraid of a lot of them. This is really puzzling to us, because he has always been such a friendly outgoing boy, now he kind of cowers back. Have any of you experienced this with your puppies, and if so, how long did it last? It is worse some days than others. Gypsy also asked for some pictures so, you can blame her for all of these.
This is where he is and what he is doing most of the time. Either playing with Donnie or me. And he loves the little shelf behind the couch. He also loves nipping at Donnie’s head. He is fine in here, but was afraid of the fan the other evening when I turned that on. I don’t know… it just kills me to see him act this way, but hopefully he will out grow it.
Want to welcome my newest follower, Carol K. She has a very good site and I have been reading and commenting on her site for quite a while. She is also my 100th follower, which is a surprise to me. I thought when I started on blog spot I would be doing good to reach 20 followers. Also want to add Dave’s site from the other day. He is just starting out and is going to do some traveling in Mexico in his New-to-him C-cab. Check both of these sites out. You won’t be disappointed.
I will talk to you again from Mississippi. Later.. :)
