Wed. Sept 28th. More fun

 since August 2006

        Well here we are just enjoying the campground, planning our winter migration and still enjoying the mild weather. When the sun shines we run out to grab a few rays of this great vitamin source. This morning I helped neighbor Jack set up his digital converter box in his trailer. Not sure why he was having problems but it worked for me so now he has some new digital tv channels. Then I found a place to set up our Sirius Satellite radio, check out the features of this new toy, install a battery for the remote, surf some of the commercial free radio stations. I know we will enjoy it.

       For a couple of days now we have some free entertainment in the resort and just like little kids we are keeping and eye on the excavation, digging up the old broken pavement and getting things ready for a facelift at the entrance to our resort.

        We did have some warm sunny periods this afternoon and were able to read outside for a while, then Trish dropped by for a chat and social hour with us, while I preheated up our Weber Q 100 grill, then set to medium low, ready to work its magic once again. I seasoned a whole 3 lb chicken, potato and pepper squash in foil put them directly on the grill, closed the lid for 1 hour and 15 minutes (no peaking). Take the chickens temperature to make sure he is perfectly done and there we go, a tasty moist chicken dinner.

        Being just the two of us here we each get half a chicken, to eat what we want and still have plenty of left overs for another meal or two. Then afterwards Trish and Maggie stopped by and we went for a walkabout the resort to check again more of the construction, now that the machines were quiet.

        Another great day, getting itchy feet more and more everyday, but we do have commitments to take care of before we hit the road, so we will hurry up and wait.
