It's Still Cold!

Well, we're still here at Indian Creek and it is still cold, along with a lot of rain and cloudiness.  However, we're getting a lot of genealogy research accomplished anyway.  Have found a couple of interesting items.  We took today off and was going sightseeing this morning down to Mark Twain's birthplace.  But, we were having thunderstorms (had them all night) so stayed in this morning.  We will be going out this afternoon to "Stations of the Cross" at a very old, 1837, catholic church just down the road from the campground.  We plan to also attend mass there on Sunday morning.  Really looking forward to that.  Weather permitting tomorrow we plan to drive in to Hannibal and sightsee as well as go to their library.  And, maybe we can go down to Mark Twain's birthplace in Florida (not sunny Florida), Mo, on Sunday afternoon.  Will be meeting with the lady who is over the historical society for Shelby County, MO on Monday.  She has lots of stuff for us to go through.  And then, Bob has to have a Pro Tyme blood test so got to find a place to have that done.  This is very, very rural here so may have to go back to Hannibal.  If so, guess we'll do that Tuesday and not on Monday when the doctor said.  Guess one day won't matter too much!  This is exactly the kind of area that his cardiologist told him to stay out of when we told him what we were going to do - full time in our RV.  Oh well, what he doesn't know won't hurt him - but, guess it could hurt Bob.  We'll be back in city suburbs in a little over a week.

I see we have lost a follower.  I hope we have not said something that hurt your feelings.  If so, we apologize cause believe me it was not intentional.

No pictures right now as most of them are of tombstones and don't think you would be interested in them.

Now, my question is, "Whatever happened to the casual, layed back RV lifestyle?".  I think we still have to find it.  Got to slow down as I think we are trying to do to much in to little time.  Next Sunday, May 1st, we will be leaving here for Altoona, Iowa (near Des Moines) to get in place for our summer workcamping job which we are scheduled to start on May 21st.  Hope to have some time for sightseeing before we actually start.  That is exactly two months from the day we hit the road.

Until next time,
