It was raining most of the night and most of this morning as well. Supposed to rain all day. So computing and coffees we discussed that maybe we go for a drive into Hammond and check out the town, never been there.
Well as we are thinking about getting ready to head out a car pills up and stops, to say hi there people from Ontario. License plates give you away every time! We started to chat and realized that we had briefly met at Rock Glen Resort in Arkona Ontario a few years ago. We discovered that we have some mutual Rv friends as well. So we sat outside and chatted, and we chatted sharing stories and information until next thing we knew it was time for lunch. Oopps we were going to be back by lunch. Well Ron went back home, his wife would be looking for him and we had lunch.
Now determined to go for that drive we hopped in the car and headed out enjoying the drive and sights along the way. Was too nice now the sun was shining and the rain stopped. But I got Suzie to go for the ride she has a mission, needs a new pair of shoes. Now this is a lady who actually hates shopping unless she has a reason, so in a store look for what she wants, not there, outside let's go.
|Suzie wait for me!|
Now on to our original destination Camping World, not much we need, just like to look at the RV stuff and see if anything new we might need. Here I got talking to the service department about new bushings for the sway bar on our coach. Four previous places we checked we had various different answers, none of them the right one. Now here they can get the parts and install what I want to have done. Problem being it will take two weeks to get the parts, guess I should have come here two weeks ago when we arrived at Abita Springs. Oh well we are not staying here another two weeks, want to get moving again soon so will go to plan "B". Not sure what plan "B" is, we will have to think about that for a while, but we do have the part numbers and suppliers name.
Now by this time its after 4 pm we both had our fill of shopping so back home unpack the car and I fired up the Weber to make a tasty supper of grilled pork chops and sweet potatoes with apples, brown sugar, butter and cinnamon, a vegetable that tastes and smells like desert.
