Yesterday, we celebrated Thanksgiving at our daughter, Renee's, home. A wonderful reminder of what we have to be thankful for is a house full of kids and grandkids. Dan, the turkey was exceptional, as were the pies. Being surrounded by smiling faces, as we were yesterday, leads to a long time of great memories. We will be heading south right after New Years and will then use Skype to keep in touch with our large, great family. Now it is on to preparing for a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year.

Mid-November again and am really getting "Hitch Itch" bad. The truck and the Montana are making noises like they are more than ready to get together again SOON. With temps in the 30s, I started the truck today. It turned slowly but started and ran great. The truck's grill got a big smile on it when it thought we were going to pick up Monty. Thinking of getting an electric oil dipstick to assist when the weather gets colder, as an assist in cold weather starting. This is a Texas truck so it does not have a block warmer built in. This is not how it is supposed to be. We are supposed to be heading south about now, where it is warmer. We really do have the best of all worlds, though. We see the family for Thanksgiving and Christmas and then leave for warmer climes in early January.

It is getting closer to departure for Florida! We will spend the holidays at home and leave as soon after New Years as we can. We will stop in Crossville, TN and visit friends and then Fair Play, SC for another visit. From there, we will head to Wildwood, FL, 3 Flags Campground, where we will spend a couple of weeks. Then to Clermont, FL, The Bees Resort for a couple of weeks. Any further plans will just have to wait until we get closer. We are planning on coming home up the East Coast, this year. We will go to Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia, where we will see my sister. From there, probably head west back to Michigan. Should arrive back home Mid-April or so. Haven't yet decided if I am going to work at Disney again this year or not. If so, we will stay in Clermont for the duration of my work with Mickey Mouse.
