Our 7th Summer Out

Besides lunch with Suzy on Friday and church on Saturday, the weekend was spent loading the trailer and getting ready to leave.

I do have news though, Chris's parents house is sold and they are moving about 5 miles away. I guess he'll have to drive to any free meals mom prepares. It is not impacting our arrangement. Rebecca forgot to mention the sale to me.

We left a little before 8 this morning and arrived in Durant, OK about 1:00. This is a nice campground associated with the Choctaw Casino. We spent awhile getting everything in its proper place and then called for the shuttle to the casino. The buffet opened at 4:00 and we had not eaten anything and were both hungry. They gave us $7 each off the buffet price. They also gave us $10 free play money. After eating what was a quite good buffet I played the slots and Ted played video poker. When I had won $50 I put the money in my purse and went to find Ted. He was down about $7 and was ready to leave. The best way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it in your pocket. It is even better when you are using someone else's money.

Tomorrow we hope to arrive in Chanute about the same time as we did here today . Ted learned our friends Judy and Greg are also there for a maintenance appointment and we are looking forward to seeing them and spending some time together.

A big thank you to all our servicemen and women who know better than anyone that freedom is not free. We salute you.

We are still hoping to hit the road after the 4th of July and head up to Michigan for a few weeks (we planning on three). Of course, that all depends on how the new mom does - but that is our plan. Have a great time!
