Mission Accomplished

We are now owners of a new set of Corelle dishes. They other day we went to K-Mart to look at the Corelle that they had on sale. All of the sets of dishes that we considered came with glasses. Tom says, " We don't really need glasses, let's wait and go to the outlet store. That way we can buy exactly what we want." We go home after picking up a few other things, and it is really hot out. We get inside Emily, and Tom goes to the fridge to get a beer. He goes to the cupboard, turns around, looks at me and says, "We don't have any glasses do we?" I said, "I didn't think we needed them."( He had been using large syrophoam cups.) Well......a couple of days later we are back at K-Mart buying dishes. Boy have we had a few laughs over that one. We just have to make sure that they are stowed really well when we get on the move.

Today we went to Munsinger Gardens. It's a beautiful park and flower gardens on the banks of the Mississippi River. We only have to drive a few miles to sit and watch the flowers grow. It is so peaceful there. There are swings and benches all over, for just that use.

It has been very hot here. We haven't seen any measurable rainfall since we got here on June 18th. It may sprinkle now and then, but nothing significant. The grass is all dried up and brown. With all the grass here, the fellas have only really had to do a little weed-whacking for the last couple of weeks. Some of the seasonal campers water the grass in their own sites, so that has to be taken care of, but that is all. They spend more time watering the flowers around the campground than cutting grass. I feel so bad for the birds. They spend so much time hopping around trying to find bugs, or something else to eat. We all have bird feeders, water, suet blocks, and other such things to help them. God bless them, they still sing.

We'll try to get some pictures in, if not we will send a link, so you all can see the gardens, and some of the beautiful birds we have here.
