It's about time.

Many of you that can relate to this. Working long hours at your career. Raising your families. Buying a home and paying all the bills related to being homeowners and parents. We're now retired and don't need all that work and expense. Now "It's about time" to follow our dreams.

Catered Breakfast, Fun Games, Great Pot Luck and Meeting More RV Bloggers.

Our Location today is Marion, North Carolina, USA.

After all the sugar we ingested yesterday we were surprised that we slept as well as we did last night. However we did wake up right on time to attend a hearty breakfast that was being catered for everyone in attendance at the RV Dreams Reunion Rally this morning. 
A full breakfast was served.
We joined everyone else at the pavilion just before 9:00. As per custom everyone was fed when the number on their table was drawn from the bag. When our table was called we were so hungry we dug in and forgot to take pictures of the meal. Suddenly one woman from the last table called was surrounded by people taking pictures of her food before she was able to get back to eat it. Even though seconds were offered few accepted the offer in order to keep their waistlines in check. Once the meal was over and announcements made everyone waited around to have a group picture taken as well as pictures of those who who had attended which rally. Afterwards everyone was on their own for the rest of morning. 
that was one filling breakfast.
Kathy and I went over to visit with Tom and Marcie Gimmarro. They were mellowing just like we were but Marcie was also preparing a pasta dish she planned on bringing to the Pot Luck this evening. We spoke for a while until they needed to leave for an appointment.

Back at the trailer Kathy read some of the pamphlets we got in our Rally package while I went next door to help Gerry with a barbeque he’d bought at Big Lots at a price you’d never see in Canada. The box filled his entire back seat so we removed the barbeque from the box and repacked the parts into the bowl itself without doing any assembly. When we put it back in the rear seat on a blanket it only filled a quarter of the seat. Talk about over packaging!

We simply had soup for lunch in order to keep our intake down. We took the time to put together a healthy four bean salad that would be part of our contribution for this evening’s Pot Luck Dinner.

At 1:00 everyone was back at the pavilion where there were a number of games set up for everyone to enjoy which allowed you to mingle with other RV Dreamers. There was Frisbee Golf, Corn Hole, Ladder Golf, Basketball and Water Bottle Bowling just to name a few. Then every half hour there were relay races unlike anything seen in most sports arenas. The challenges were many but the laughter was hysterical. Things wrapped up around 3:30.

Now Kathy and I had some work to do. We created an assembly line in our kitchen while we made our second contribution to this evening’s Pot Luck Dinner. Kathy fried store bought Won Ton Wrappers in Sunflower Oil a few at a time. When she was finished I’d apply a light dusting of Icing Sugar on them. The whole process took about an hour to do the entire package but most everyone that tastes them wants the recipe. It is so simple to make but just time consuming as they generally go fast.

Gerry was having trouble printing his confirmation tickets for an outing tomorrow in his trailer so we offered him to do it in our trailer. He was still having the same problem here so I showed him how I do it and it worked. 
Our assembly line.
The 6:00 Pot Luck was a humongous success and even though we were cautious not to eat everything in sight our plates did have a little more on them then there should have been. Once the meal was over everyone brought their leftovers home. Kathy and I will have to share a serving of the beans but there were no Won Ton Wrappers left. 
The table was filled with food from one end to the other.

Since this is Memorial Day Howard and Linda put on a special presentation for not only the Armed Forces but RV Dreamers that have left this world. It was very emotional for a number of people in the audience. 

After getting set up around the campfire I noticed a couple whom truly looked familiar to me but I just couldn’t place it. After reading their name tags I was asking if they work camped or volunteered at some of the CEO parks. Then I asked if they knew certain RVers such as Gail and Rick Houle or Paul and Marti Dahl. They certainly did as a fact Mike and Terri Young have their own blog called Forever Young. After talking for a while I went back to sit with Kathy. She was glad I finally knew who they were.

At nine we headed back to the trailer because for the next two days we have to use an Alarm Clock. Yes even retired RVers have to use them once in a while. The good part of the ordeal is that we’ll be having a whole lot of fun. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.


Did you hear about the fool who keeps going around saying "No?"

No. Oh, so it's you!
