Let The Memories Flow….

Tuesday night we met my friend, Sue, for dinner in Hartland at Zesti.  Sue and I met in freshman science class way back in high school and thanks to Facebook (& Sue’s sister) we were able to rekindle our friendship a little more than a year ago. We had a very nice dinner.  Michael got … Continue reading »

Horicon Marsh, Fried Chicken & Must-Skis

Sunday 7/26 We left home about 11:45 am  and ventured north to Horicon…home of the Horicon Marsh.  I’d been here a LONG time ago as a child and Michael had never been so it was time to make a visit. It was just a 24 mile drive through the country side to the Horicon Marsh … Continue reading »

Madtown, Surprise & Visitors!

Friday 7/24 With lots on our list to do today we started out with a nice breakfast made by Michael.  While he cooked breakfast I did some dishes and made the bed so that we didn’t have a mess to come home to. We left home about 9:30 am and headed due west toward Madison.  First … Continue reading »

Moving Day: Rockford, IL To Ixonia, WI

Once again, we had a nice, short drive today…just about 95 miles.  So no hurry to hit the road.  We had breakfast, did some move prep chores and then chilled for a while before we finished up our chores, hitched up and hit the road about 10:30 am. We chose not to go north on I90 … Continue reading »

A Week In Rockford

Thursday morning we went to Aunt Mary’s for breakfast.  Our niece, Crystal, recently bought the place, which has been a Rockford landmark for years. Our breakfasts were very good (eggs benedict for me!) but what was even better was getting the chance to sit down and chat with Crystal.  Thankfully it wasn’t very busy and … Continue reading »

Great Lakes NAS, IL To Rockford, IL

Today’s journey was only 76 miles so, once again, no great hurry to get on the road.  With now sewer or water we only had to worry about taking down the satellite dish and unplugging the coach from power…Michael had those things taken care of in no time. My chores inside can normally be taken … Continue reading »

Laziness….Pure Laziness….Ahhhhh

Friday 7/10 Just like last year when we were here at Great Lakes we both slept really well….I’m pretty sure that once I turned out the light I never moved until 5:40 am.  I fell back to sleep and woke up to the sound of ‘pow, pow, pow…pow, pow, pow…pow, pow, pow’…just can’t beat living … Continue reading »

Travel Day: Elkhart, IN To Great Lakes Naval Base, IL

We started out with rain first thing this morning but thankfully Michael had done most of his travel prep last night so he didn’t have to be out in it too much.  The biggest thing was to take down and stow the satellite dish. Dorothy & Eric pulled out (after we exchanged hugs and handshakes) … Continue reading »

Errands & Dinner With Friends

Michael spent a good while on the phone with Lippert ordering some parts for the stabilizer jacks.  A couple of years ago (neither of us can remember the circumstances) the jack got bent and Michael was able to pound it out to straighten it as best as he could but now that he had it … Continue reading »
