playing catch up!! Trips in 2014

The blog has been  quiet for too long !!
 I'm on a mission to remedy that.

Lets go back in time a bit to 2014 and see what I can find for pictures and  memories.

we got tired of painting the house and having a blizzard every week and  during a thaw packed up and headed south to Memphis Tom Sawyer RV park to find spring ! and we did .. 70  80 sun shiny days.

 we parked near the river, and watched the barges and tug boats. waving to the people on board. this is nice park , clean and relaxing.


We also did a trip to Davenport Ia in mid May.

 This park was near the interstate. It had a pool.

While in that are we did the nice park  up down with pretty green house and pond.

 WE also spent a week in June near Chicago at a Fox lake park that was crazy crowded. While there we had  big winds and sirens,, drama....
 the people in the tent were not there at the time....
  After that trip it was County Fair time. We stayed at local park in Rockwell IA near the stream there.  Nancy came and spent  the day. Rockwell does a great fireworks display we enjoyed that!

 Two weeks later found us at another fair, another park Beeds Lake in Hampton Ia

From there we  made the decision to go  SOUTH ! and a quick phone call for reservation had us set up for 7 months in  Mission Tx.  We left  Sept 29.. got back mid April.

sun shiney days in June

  A nice bike ride to preveiw  the Nashua Cedar View Park

We  went on a short cruise !    Spring has been  so very rainy..  that while checking out the forecast we had a string of 4 days without rain. ! 
   Celebrating that first   sun shiny day with a bike ride.. led us to a park in  Nashua (( Lil Brown Church in the Vale country . This park is lovely,  nice view,  quiet park,  sites on the water, NO flooding, clean bath house, mostly level spots.  We hopped on the bike back home and got  chores done and packed up, quickly leaving the next morning !
  Its was very quiet  ~~~ NO Net, no Phone, NO Facebook,..... bout killed us LOLL
 and  so we had lots of bon fires... some nice walks,  puppy time...
 Lovely views of the water, just the right amount of breeze.   no bugs....
  some party lights................

  a cold one....... or two....... Tim roughs it smoothly  !

 puppy time.........

  Dandy thought  Tim was cooking bacon just for him  ! yesplease....  LOL
    While Tim enjoys the outside reading books. I set up the machine and buzz away.. This is a  fun braid pattern.. Its been done since fall, but NOT quilted. The picnic table was a great place for this project.
  I get such a kick out of quilter ladies that blog about their studios. and fancy cup boards & tables..  closets over flowing with fabric stash... My studio is anywhere there is electricity and a table !
  Diva and Dandy are content to be near, watching the world go by.
 ... and then it rained....... again....... with warnings and  drama on the radars, and the rain pounding on the tin roof........

 once again  I moved my 'Studio'

We stayed at the park from Tues thru Sat morning. and had  the best time even tho we were disconnected from the world,, I guess we were living in our Own Small world........ Ain't it grand to rough it smoothly!

We are traveling everywhere !!

ohhh so many places to GO.....

I have been in many places, but I've never been in Cahoots. Apparently, you can't go alone. You have to be in Cahoots with someone. I've also never been in Cognito. I hear no one recognizes you there.
I have, however, been in Sane. They don't have an airport; you have to be driven there. I have made several trips there, thanks to my friends, family and work. I live close so it's a short drive.

I would like to go to Conclusions, but you have to jump, and I'm not too much on physical activity anymore. I have also been in Doubt. That is a sad place to go and I try not to visit there too often.

I've been in Flexible, but only when it was very important to stand firm. Sometimes I'm in Capable, and I go there more often as I'm getting older. One of my favorite places to be is in Suspense! It really gets the adrenaline flowing and pumps up the old heart! At my age I need all the stimuli I can get! And, sometimes I think I am in Vincible but life shows me I am not.

 People keep telling me I'm in Denial but I'm positive I've never been there before! I have been in Deepshit many times; the older I get, the easier it is to get there. I actually kind of enjoy it there. So far, I haven't been in Continent, but my travel agent says I'll be going soon

 Wave as you pass by ~~~~~   Karyl  & Tim
