Tuesday, June 26 -- With heavy rain this morning and a weather report calling for all-day rain, we decided to wait a day before heading towards Yellowstone National Park. We hung around the motor home all morning until about noon when Donna call and invited us up to visit her and Norm. These are friends from the last two winters spent in the Texas Rio Grande Valley. As a matter of fact, we rented a RV spot off them the first year we visited Mission, TX.

They have a wonderful home in Deer Meadows, WA, which is about 30 miles North of Spokane, right on the Columbia River. This is their summer home. They recently purchased a home in Mission, TX, where they spend the winters.

They met us along the highway, and we followed them down the road to a delightful small town grocery store/restaurant, Fort Spokane Store Restaurant. We love eating at small local dinners or taverns. And thanks Norm for grabbing the check!

The guy that owns the place just can't throw a thing away.

We then moved to Donna and Norm's home to visit for the afternoon. They have a lovely 4-bedroom home out in the country, and get this guys....Norm has TWO storage barns! Now that's what Paul calls awesome! The place is for sale if anyone is looking for a very nice home on the Columbia River near Spokane, WA.

With the rain continuing and fog settling in, we decided we better head home. Thanks Donna and Norm for a fun afternoon get-together. We'll see you in South Texas.

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


  1. Sure don't think you're going to see any rain when you get to Montana. Fires, maybe, but not rain. And lots of warmth.

  2. nice to meet up with some old friends!..I enjoyed your tour of Spokane..I had no idea that there was waterfalls!!

  3. That sounds like a nice day. Love those little local places too. You're right, that owner must be a collector of some sort!!

  4. Sure a lot of heads hanging on the walls of that restaurant. I guess you knew for sure what you were eating right?

  5. It certainly is nice to be able to meet folks along the way. Glad you had a great time. I agree .. that restaurant sure looked like something else.

  6. It is great to meet up with friends after being apart for some time! Indiana and Ohio 104 degrees forecast today!

  7. Isn't it always great to reconnect with friends we meet on the road. It certainly is the beauty of the rv lifestyle.

  8. Donna and Norm look like and sound like nice folks.

  9. What a nice way to spend a dreary day! The grocery store/restaurant looked like there was fun stuff to see everywhere you turned your head. Two storage barns...just think how much 'stuff' you could store...and not find when you need it!


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