It’s been a month since I’ve posted to the blog. First I need to explain this entry’s title. I won’t be writing the blog trying to entertain everyone (not that I really did any way). I will be using the blog to keep track of our travels more in the format of a journal…..short one line entries of our activities…..mainly so I can keep track of where we’ve been and what we did. So, it may not be as interesting for you but you are more than welcome to keep reading if you want.

Made taco soup and put more mustard in the pretzel dip for dinner with the gang at Lynette and Gregg’s RV
Arlene and Kevin Sullivan arrived at Seven Oaks and will be staying for the month of February

Tuesday, 2 Feb:
Found a leak under the trailer where the toilet is located
Nolan took down the bottom of the RV to see if he could find the leak and didn’t really find one but decided to use some fiberglass stuff along the seams to see if that would stop the leak. He went to find the repair stuff.
I went to lunch at Gonzales the hugh hamberger place with the gang
We then went to Hobby Lobby and Sally’s Beauty Supply
Last stop was a bakery that the gang had found a couple of days ago…..really good donuts and very reasonable prices
While I was gone, Nolan worked on the leak filling the tank up and draining it and couldn’t get it to leak again. Decided we probably had let the tank get to full so he didn’t use the repair stuff.
Went down to the Activity Hall and listened to the The Young Family Band music show…..very good, parents and four kids, bluegrass and gospel

Lunch at McAllisters, Took back repair stuff, rained all day
