Saturday, June 18 – What a nice surprise Marsha had today. As she was cleaning the motorhome in her dyed-stained tank top, shorts to short for her age and hair half in a pony tail half hanging down, she heard a knock at the door. She opened the door and said, "Hi." The gentleman said, "You don't know me, but I follow you on your blog." What a GRAND surprise. Ron and Carla Harbour were picking up their MH that they had stored here at the park. I invited them in, and we had a wonderful visit. What a delightful couple! Ron and Carla have just recently begun full timing. They were on their way to their first workamping position in Florida and just wanted to stop and say Hi. They were both somewhat disappointed that Paul wasn't back yet. I asked if they had a blog and Ron said it is a work in progress. Don't forget, Ron, let us know when we can share the blog address with everyone. After about an hour visit, the two had to leave and head for Huntsville. They were having a good-bye dinner with their daughter. THANKS for stopping by you two, and THANKS for not noticing what a mess I looked…LOL.

Sunday, June 19  - HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!!! Paul spent a wonderful day with Marsha's dad and family. They had a Father's day cookout at Stacie, Marsha's sister's, house.

Marsha met Carrie in Humble for some shopping and lunch. They both were looking for specific items but with very little luck. Marsha found a small bag she had been looking for and poor Carrie didn't find any dresses to wear to her many weddings. Oh well, there is always tomorrow!

Monday, June 20 – The Escapees group adopted two miles of road in front of the park for clean up. Each time we visit this park, we ask if they have plans to clean the road. Each time we have received a NO…but not this time. Today is the day, and Marsha got her chance to volunteer.

Twenty-one members met in the clubhouse at 7:45, were given instructions, vests, a nail pole and told go for it.

The trolley dropped us off in groups of two at designated areas along the road. We began the dirty job of clean up.

What is WRONG with people? This is what we found along the road on both sides.3-bottle


Why would someone throw this out the window?5-hanger

Of course the "main" staple…21st Century Tumbleweed.7-21st-centry-tumble-weed

Someone tell me why this would be laying along the side of the road? My strangest find for the day.8-ept

After an hour, our side of the road looked really good.6-clean-field

1 hour – 1 full bag each

After we returned to the clubhouse, I got to thinking…what if someone thinks I really didn't do the work and just drove along the road taking pictures. Well, here I am…hot but happy.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see ya'll back real soon. Have a great day!


  1. How fun to meet blog friends. That'll teach you to clean when you're not dressed in your very best clothes. And you should have had high heels on too. The road looks great after you guys got done.

  2. Isn't it fun to meet people on the road that we've met only through blogging!

    Trash is certainly an eyesore. However, you did get a new outfit to pick it up. The orange vest looks good on you.

  3. And pearls. Where were your pearls we women wear while house cleaning? My house needs cleaning, suppose I should go dress up now?

  4. When I still worked, our staff had an adopted street. We would give prizes for the strangest thing picked up. Can't remember any of the winners but can't say they could top the pregnancy tests.

  5. It is fun meeting new traveling friends.... When is Paul getting back?


Thanks for leaving us a comment. We enjoy reading them. Have a great day!
