August 1-October 29, 2020
It’s been almost 3 months since my last post but not much has changed. Our stay here in IL is winding down, we leave here on Friday, 10/30, and head towards TX. We will once again be selling Christmas trees, this year at a different lot, we’ll be in Carrollton. We'll make a few stops along the way and catch up with some friends we haven't seen in a few years.
So here’s a catch up of the last few months.
We enjoyed time with Curt and Glenda before they left just after Labor Day. Lots of afternoons playing cards and the boys drinking beer.
Celebrating Curt's 70th Birthday-hope the video plays
We did get one day of geocaching in, Curt reached his 500th geocache, go Curt!!
|Glenda of the corn!!|
|About to find The Dashinly Handsome Cache|
|#500 for Curt!! |
We did get out on the lake one day, Curt and Glenda’s grandson came for a visit, they rented a pontoon boat for an afternoon and invited us to join them.
We’ve been busy helping my folks with various projects around their house. Dave enjoyed taking pictures of the flowers in my mom’s garden.
Our friends Vic and Phyllis are gate attendants here at Bo Woods, a couple of times this summer they entrusted us with their dog Snoop, we sure enjoyed having him over for sleepovers. We’ve enjoyed some fun evenings of Dave’s Game with Vic and Phyllis and hope they will be back here next summer. While I never got a picture of Vic and Phyllis we did get a few of Snoop when he was over for the night.
Our site here at Forrest W Bo Woods has served us well this summer and we look forward to returning to it next summer.
Dave has enjoyed all the birds hanging around our feeders this summer.
We've seen lots of pelicans hanging around the lake.
We've enjoyed a number of meals at the Hunan restaurant in Mattoon IL. If you've never seen Dave enjoy wasabi here's what you're missing.
Sunday 10/25 the campground closed, we, along with the other volunteers are the only ones here now.
