BULLMOOSE BAR AND GRILL….OH YEA…

First of all, I’d like to put a big shout out to some new, brave followers, RV-Anytimers, who have a truck camper AND a Fiver….and it seems they have been to Alaska, one of our favorites!!! Thanks for reading .  You will soon figure out that Dennis (A.K.A McGuyver) is often the fodder for my blogs, and I am the writer…so it’s all MY fault!!!  

Den and I did our walk through “downtown”  just so I could get a picture of the train car, (which is still not open, by the way…)

Well, the old Diner train car sure looks lots different these days!! Sure wish we could go in and have some food and a cocktail…all part of our reporting back, of course.  Alas, they still aren’t ready for the public…AW SHUCKS!!

BEFORE…….

          ………..AND AFTER…..100_8637

She certainly looks “restored”, doesn’t she??? ….Love the colors, too!

Our clock/thermometer which displays the time and outdoor temp on our bedroom ceiling is broken.  It displays the time, but the temperature part is kaput…This is not good…We use that to help us get dressed “weather appropriate” for our morning walk.  McGuyver tried to fix it, but decided to just order a new one…GOOD DECISION!!!

…Would we rather be here……………..  ?                              …………Or here??????

It is FREAKIN’ COLD here today, so we found out!……(And rest assure, no animals were harmed for this fur collar….. )

Our stroll through the arctic took us by our local “fine dining” restaurant….We rarely go there,  but, Den had his class reunion there.  It is very nice,  but McGuyver and I don’t often spend big bucks on food that we can make at  home…Maybe that’s part of our “frugality”, or maybe we just like to eat at home….comfy , by our fireplace…very romantic, …especially with me in my ensembles…

The pumpkin guy, above right , I must explain….Our Sandwich High School “Indians” are in the 4A Illinois State High School Championship football semi-finals…This town is covered with encouraging signs, and all of the store windows downtown say “GO INDIANS!!”….They play the Rock Island Alleman Pioneers tomorrow at 2PM.  Last week when they beat the Mendota,  the whole town came out to great them when they the team bus drove into town..(We were still in Mississippi).  At least we sulked home  just in time to catch the Sandwich Indians play in the semi-finals!! (AND the Chicago Bears game on TV last night, where they SHUT OUT the Miami Dolphins!!!) YEA, MONSTERS OF THE MIDWAY!!

GO INDIANS…ALL THEY WAY TO CHAMPAIGN!!

(CHAMPAIGN, IL AT THE UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS ,IS WHERE THE PLAY THE CHAMPIONSHIP GAME…IF THEY BEAT ALLEMAN!)

I have been busy getting my menu planned for Thanksgiving, and I felt the need to put up a few well placed Xmas decorations.

That little tree is fiber-optic ,and..it revolves too….I kinda get the feeling we’re in a disco when it’s lit…So much for tradition.  We did have a nice traditional big tree, but when we started heading South for Xmas, we handed it down to our daughter, Chris.  It is  a tree that just cries out to be set up every year, and NOT stored in some old person’s basement, like ours…I know that tree is  much happier at their home every year, all lit up, sparkling and smiling with gifts at it’s feet….and not hidden away in our house….100_8634

 

 

I SAW THIS SMILEY GUY AT KOHL’S AND HE JUMPED HAPPILY INTO MY CART…HE TOLD ME HE WAS ON SALE, AND THAT HE WOULD LOOK FABULOUS AT  MY HOUSE…HE WAS RIGHT!!!

 

(IN CASE YOU CAN’T TELL, HE IS A NIGHTLITE…VERY CLEVER, EH??)

 

 

 

….Dennis is feeling better, but still  has a few little twinges in his back.  Thanks to all of you for your concern, and especially all you guys who made me realize that McGuyver isn’t the only stoic MD avoider…

This morning Den was  online with Google maps…..looking to see the route from Sandwich, IL to Jefferson TX…..hmmm…Either he was just toying with me, OR…… he is intent on heading out of here soon…

STAY TUNED FOR FURTHER UPDATES…THIS COULD GET INTERESTING!

  7. We also have a fiber optic Christmas tree that has been with us since we got on the road. It's an every year must, and take so little storage. TRAVEL, guys, and we'll follow along on your camera strap!
