October Family times

 Cullman,  AL

We have been extremely busy with Boondockers Welcome guests in October and November looks to be another busy month.    And during this time we have been blessed with family too.

Earlier this month we celebrated son Lennies birthday.   From the left here is daughter in law Lois, granddaughter Maddie, great grandson Jordan, Lennie and of course Leonard.

Happy Times.   Each year Lennie fries plenty of Shrimp.  Each year we get treated with some to bring home.

Our Grandson Justin and girlfriend Karlie are moving from Illinois to Florida where she has accepted a job promotion.   They spent a few days visiting us here at the approximate midway point.

One day they toured the Space Center up in Huntsville.   Then the next day we took them to the always fun Rattlesnake Saloon.    For those that have not been there, it is built into a cave.   You leave your car in the parking lot and then transported down in the back of a pickup truck.   When we arrived, we were informed by the driver (who remembered Len from when we were there in July) that the power was out.  He offered to drive us down to look around.

We were down there about a half hour.   We loaded into the truck for the ride up and the power was restored.    We got off immediately. 

It was a bit chilly so we opted to eat inside the saloon instead of under the cave.

After lunch we took Karlie and Justin to the nearby Coon Dog Cemetary.   I have noted this attraction in past blogs.  

All too soon it was time for them to leave.   We wish them luck and love.

We are greatly enjoying our enclosed porch on suitable days.  No more than this fellow.

Until next time.

New Room. And other stuff

 Cullman,  AL

We've been thrilled to have had so many RVers use our sites in the last couple of weeks.  We are expecting our 165th RV later today.  It's two years ago this week that we first joined Boondockers Welcome as hosts.

We met this nice couple years ago in Hondo TX and made a life-long connection.   They are in our area once a year getting their Tifflin Motorhome serviced in Red Bay, Al.    While there last month they came for a too-short visit.   This is Jerry and Carol (and us of course).

Daughter Terri came for a five-day visit two weeks ago.

While she was here, we had two couples staying on our sites.   Both with beautiful traveling homes.  We spent lots of time visiting.   One afternoon when Leonard was a pulmonary therapy, they asked Terri and me to join them at a local attraction.   Goat Island Brewery.

I had a root beer.   Terri, not so much.

Here they all are.

Well.... our new room is DONE.  Mostly.   It still needs a new ceiling fan.  We purchased the carpeting from Lowes.   They came to measure.  At that time we were told they would not install it as this room is not climate controlled.   What?   It's indoor/outdoor carpet.   We plan to eventually have heat and air out there but that wasn't good enough.   Ok.   Our neighbor Gary to the rescue.  He and Len picked up the carpet.

First they had to cut 4 feet off as the carpet came in 12-foot widths.   Our room is 8 foot wide.

This is Len "supervising" and Gary working.

We are so blessed to have great neighbors.   Gary and Ashley to the east and Hilton and Cindy to the west.   

It didn't take Gary long to complete the job.   When Terri got here a couple of days later I asked her and an RVer  get the sofa from the basement.   This was originally Terri's sofa that she purchased more than 30 years ago.  We went to Walmart and got new cushions and pillows.   This is the completed project.

Loving this room.   I am so glad we decided on this improvement.  

Until next time.....
