Biding our time until we can leave!

Dennis and I are hoping to leave this area for the Winter and our "lift off" date is tentatively set for November 28th. We will spend 2 nights on the road until we land in Texarkana for a few days. There was a time when we drove it in just one overnight stay, sometimes Wally Docking around Blytheville AR..not a great place to be alone in a parking lot..I'm not a big fan of the Wally Dock idea..I prefer at least a neighbor, albeit a bad one..Misery loves company. One thing we have plenty of is time..Why rush it?
We have been busy this last part of October. Our grand kids have been busy and we have tried to keep up with their activities.  Our oldest Wolff cub, Aiden, has been playing Youth Tackle Football down in Zionsville, IN.

 They won both games too!! This weekend they have a Superbowl and play 2 games again!! The NFL doesn't even do that!! Aiden's little brother, Maddox, plays flag football and their season is over, but Madds is always there to support his big bro!

Our Heiser grandsons are pretty busy too! The oldest, Peyton, is a Senior and runs Cross Country as I have mentioned before. They placed 2nd in the Regional and are now headed down to Peoria for the State Championships this Saturday. We aren't able to go, but his mom will keep us informed on how it goes. Last week I went to his track meet dressed like Nanook of the North!! Those runners were just in their shorts and tank tops...BRRRRR!! The fields were wet and we had snow flurries..My feet were soaked..What the heck?? This a darn track meet, for God's sake, NOT a football game!!

This is a Senior picture...He's a great kid, inside and out..Of course, I am not prejudice at all!
Peyton's younger brother, Campbell, had a part in the middle school play. Campbell is 13 and played the role of a Sheriff..

 Campbell and his Mom and Dad...

Sheriff Jesse Marlow, on stage.

The kids have nicknamed Campbell "Soupy"..He's a really fun kid! He is so little, just look at those toothpick legs!..Oh, and those are MY cowboy boots,making their stage debut!!

We were not proud at all!! Campbell is following in his sister's Thespian footsteps..And speaking of his sister.....

Taylor is obviously adjusting to college life at Ball State University.

Dennis is busy in the combine. They are way behind due to so much rain. I have been trying to start loading our Hiker. We haven't taken it on a Winter trip in two years and we almost stripped it clean when we parked it, so there is a LOT to load. It doesn't help that it is parked quite a ways from our house! We also discovered that our slides were not working properly, so Dennis got underneath where the gear gizmo was. He first thought we may have to buy a new $700 motor (YIKES!), but discovered it was just some thingamajig on top of the motor that was the problem. As you can see, I have no idea what it is called, but he got online, ordered said thingamajig on line, and put it in when it arrive . WALLA!! Slides work.

I am a little nervous about this trip because the Hiker has been just sitting for a long time...I sure hope the ol' girl doesn't throw a hissy fit about having to get off her pad and travel again! She is, after all, 10 years old..How old is that in people years? So Dennis and I are trying not to jinx this trip. The whole idea of getting outta here this Winter is rest and relaxation. Now if I can just remember where I had everything put away in the Hiker, and can redo it the same way..I do, however, remember where I stored that wine!!


  1. You two have some nice looking grandkids.
    As long as you know were the wine is everything will be fine...:)

  2. It's always a big job having to load an RV for winter travels and having your fiver further away would make that even harder. Been a few years since we were last through Texarkana. Hope you are able to get on the road soon without any glitches. You will really enjoy the change of pace this time. Lots of quiet people free rest and relaxation.

  3. You have an amazing family!!! I know you guys are very proud of each and every one of those grandkids AND their parents!!
    I am so glad I don't have to load up a camper...a perk of just staying in it all the time!! I know you are excited so you will get everything packed I am sure!! Have fun anticipating!!!!
