Another Amish Kind of Day

This afternoon we went with 110 or so other Heartland owners to Yoder’s Homestyle Cookin’ for lunch.  It just so happens that it’s the same place we went to for lunch yesterday.  Actually we were at Yoder’s 2 years ago too!  We could have chosen to go to a different home today but I couldn’t … Continue reading »

We boarded the coach bus and pulled out of the parking lot about 8:00 am. 1st Stop – Rise ‘n Roll bakery, a place … Continue reading »

Carpet Cleaning and Rekindling Friendships

We had a nice breakfast of eggs, bacon and biscuits and we actually ate it while sitting at the dining room table this morning.  It was a nice way to kick off the day! While I cooked breakfast Michael got started on picking everything and anything up off the floor and storing it out-of-the-way as … Continue reading »

Travel Day: Casey, IL To Goshen, IN

We were up about 7:30 am, had some breakfast and did the whole Facebook/email thing before pulling out of the KOA about 9:30 am. We had a pretty darn uneventful drive…which is a good thing!  Made a quick stop at a rest area for a potty break and then a stop in a parking lot … Continue reading »

Travel Day: West Memphis, AR To Casey, IL

About 8:45 last night as I was lying in bed reading and Michael was putting his clean clothes away the power went out.  Then just seconds afterward the wind picked up and we got some light rain.  Strange that the power goes off BEFORE the storm comes.  It never did rain real hard and I … Continue reading »

We left about 9:00 am for the short trip over the Mississippi River and our first stop was the Visitor’s Center.  When be advised it was a ‘must stop’.  Once we got there we weren’t quite sure as to why it was … Continue reading »

Travel Day: Texarkana, TX To West Memphis, AR

We pulled out at 8:57 am….3 minutes ahead of schedule!  That helped make up for yesterday’s delayed departure.  Within 8 minutes of hitting the road we passed into Arkansas.  Today’s drive was all interstate – I30 and I40. I find interstate driving boring…but the drive from Little Rock to Memphis is particularly monotonous.  Ugh. We … Continue reading »
