Turned into a beautiful day. The sun was shining and the temp was about 67 I think that is a perfect temp don't you. T-shirt and short pants.

The girls took off for Cracker Barrel for lunch and roaming around the store. There were sales clerks that were a little to aggressive if you ask me. This women tried to talk me into buying an cute little suit for one of the grand babies 24.99. I said I didn't think so at this time. She wasn't going to be put off all that easy so I just left her standing there talking about how they could wear it for Thanksgiving. It was clearly a Christmas one. Then another one came along and started talking about something I had looked at. I was just looking. Finally I said if I need you I will ask. These stores are very small so its kind of a pain to have them in your face. I know its there job but it sure takes the fun out of shopping for me. Its like you can't even browse. I don't like to shop much as it is but to be followed like that is annoying. But we managed to have a good time. As always the food was good. 3 of us had the salads and baked potato and 1 had the baked chicken and instead of an extra veggie she had a baked apple something. It looked good.

I think when the sun shines and the air has been cleaned but heavy rain it just makes you feel good all over.

I need to make an appointment to get the door lock fixed on the motor home and the leak on the top of the toilet. I guess it needs a gasket or something it only leaks when its flushed. The door is a real pain since it has to be locked from the dead bolt and it won't close any other way. I took it in once before and instead of changing it they tried to fix it. It worked only 3 times and now its worse than ever. Other than that I am ready to hit the road again. Maybe the first week in Dec.

Hope you all had a great day.


  1. In retail there is a fine line between aggressive and pushy. Some clerks just don't get it. At least they didn't try to sell a Christmas dress for Easter, yet.

    Glad you weather improved.

  2. Hi John,
    I always loved going to the Cracker Barrel to browes all the little corners to see what might be hidden in then. And I usually pick up a new ornament for the tree as I did yesterday. But it just wasn't fun when you see them watching you and getting ready to pounce.

    Oh well its going to be another pretty day. Hope yours will be too.
