Rally Day Two

I was up early and went right to the shower house. It's huge and each personal area has a shower with an 8 inch head, a commode and washstand. Most campgrounds don't have such nice accommodations.

The guys have coffee with Petro the Mayor each morning so I finished getting dressed, straightened up and COOKED goetta for breakfast. I also boiled my eggs for deviled eggs as my contribution for the BBQ tonight. I know, I know. Making coffee, frying some goetta and boiling eggs isn't really cooking but it did involve the stove and having to do dishes. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Later on we attended a fire seminar. There are a lot of issues with rigs and tow vehicles that need to be addressed. Mack the Fire Guy was very informative and we learned a lot.

After lunch we started out on our scavenger hunt. There were five clues where we needed to get cards from businesses. I had gone through all the brochures and had a pretty good idea where to go. We got the first four OK but ran out of time for the fifth. The sheet isn't due back in yet so we'll go tomorrow to Mt. Hope and get the last one.

We browsed some of the stores but actually shopped at Troyer's Country Market in Berlin. We got a few groceries and sampled lots of their home made things. Once we get through with all these friend and family affairs, Brenda and I will be cooking each night most of the time.

We learned today that Jay and Stella aren't going with us. They are coming to Grand Lake St. Mary's for the weekend but when we leave they'll head towards Cincinnati and on to Texas. Their house sale fell through and they need to go home to regroup. We'll miss them but you have to do what you have to do.

Tonight's BBQ was great.I can easily skip the hot dogs and burgers and just eat all the wonderful salads. We won a door prize - the DVD "The Long, Long Trailer" with Desi Arnez and Lucille Ball. It will be fun to watch. I haven't seen it since I was a kid.

There is a band and campfire tonight. Rick, Brenda and Ted have already gone over so I better get out there.

Just wanted to shout "howdy" to all my friends and family out there. This part of Ohio is just beautiful and we're enjoying the mild weather and the wonderful people who live in these parts.
