One Quarter Mile

Goshen, Indiana
Elkhart County 4H Fairgrounds
Site # 429

Last night we had some terrible winds and rain, it didn't last long, but it was loud enough to wake you up.

I thought I'd do the driving and the parking today.  Just as we got hooked up the sun went behind a cloud and it started to sprinkle.  I drove the entire way without even taking a break.  Yep, a whole quarter mile or less.  I put the trailer in perfect the first time, until Bill told me our site was the next one over.  Then the fun began.  I kept trying to put it in so our macerater hose would reach the sewer.  We finally figured out that we had to straddle the hook ups and to have it within about 3 inches of the water on one side and maybe 5 inches from the electric on the other.  It took some doing, but it's in there and we can reach the sewer which is right below where the electric plugs in.  
Susie called and said she and Bud had about 300 miles to go and should be in about 6.  We checked and their assigned site was open. They were going to go to the Lux when they arrived so we said we'd go with them.  

They arrived a little after 6 and we jumped in the truck and headed to the Lux.  Bill and I already knew what we were going to order.  When we pulled up, the lights weren't on.  The sign on the door said Sunday hour was 7 am to 3 pm.  How could they do that to us?  We're loyal customers.  

Right behind the Lux was a Chinese restaurant so we decided that nobody can ruin Chinese food.  When we walked in we noticed that it was a buffet but had lots to choose from.  The steam was coming off the buffet so it looked fresh.  
  Notice how happy the four of us looked.  Well it was because we were excited to see each other, not because we enjoyed the food.  The food was tasteless.  The last straw was when the fortune cookies arrived.  They were terrible!  How can something wrapped in cellophane be that bad.  Nobody could ruin a fortune cookie, but they did.  

Oh well, we decided it would be a memorable evening.

We all decided that we've been there and tried it, and we won't be back.  

Turtle Safely......
