Moving on West.......Stopping along the way.

While we were stopped at Ms. Pat’s sisters place in Panama City, they wanted to see our Motorhome. Their daughters, Susan and Cindy, were there also, so we all went out to take the tour.  Here is Sabra and Tom sitting on our sofa and their #2 daughter, Cindy, is sitting in the passenger seat up front with her granddaughter, Hadley.

Sue, Sabra and Tom's oldest daughter, sat at the table and Hadley was watching herself in all the mirrors.

Ms. Megabyte, not being the social kitty, took off for the bedroom and hid under the pillows…….. She is afraid of “little people”.

Later that evening at Dinner, Josh, Ms. Pat’s grandson (Gus’s son) was able to come and spend a couple hours with us.  He lives and works in Panama City so this gave us a chance to see him before we head West.  Josh has a Black Belt in Karate and teaches classes in the area, also.   He is on the left and Sabra (Pat’s oldest sister) is in the middle, then Ms. Pat. We sure enjoyed the visit with them all. 

We departed Tom and Sabra’s place in Panama City early Thursday morning and headed on down I-10 about 275 miles to Slidell, Louisiana where we stopped to see Ms. Pat’s oldest Son Gus (Josh's Dad).   Gus is a contractor and he took off work a couple hours early so he could visit with us.  He stopped and picked up some fresh Oysters and Shrimp for our last Seafood feast.  We won’t be seeing any real good, fresh Seafood for a while, so we cherished the opportunity…..Man, was it good!!

Mark catching Garr
Marc, one of Ms Pats grandsons, is there working for Gus and showed us this picture of the Gator Gar he caught a couple days ago.  Marc is Ms. Pat’s daughter, Terri’s, youngest son.  I know this gets a little confusing. I can figure out who is who because I have been in the family for 26 years!   Now that’s a takes a while to get one of these in the boat.  It was sure good to see Gus and Marc…

When we got ready to leave Slidell Friday morning and travel the remaining 75 miles on to Rollie and Gina’s in Denham Springs, we were fogged in. Since Rollie was flying in from Houston that day, we called him to let him know we were fogged in and would be late.  He informed us that he was also socked in at Houston and couldn't fly out until the fog lifted.

We were able to get on the road for our short trip about 10:00am and were soon parked in Rollie and Gina’s yard. Rollie arrived a few hours later. We finally got to meet their daughter Ashley.  What an honor! We had heard so much about her and were so anxious to meet her.  Ashley is a Doctor and is just finishing up some intern work here in Baton Rouge.  I can see why Rollie and Gina are so proud of her.  What a joy she is along with her 6 month old daughter, Jolee. She and Rollie are pictured above.

We also got to meet their Daughter-in-Law and her name is Ashley, also.  She is their son Thomas’s wife and they have a beautiful little girl named Abigail. Abigail is a little over a year old and is full of energy. Ashley is here waiting for Thomas to complete his tour of duty in the Marine Corps in a couple months.  These kids are all so wonderful and what beautiful babies they have.  So beautiful that I made a complete album of them and their beautiful Moms. To see all these lovely girls and a few other pictures, just click on the photo below and it will take you to my Web Album.
Rollie and Gina visit Oct 2012

It was a GREAT WEEK!!!!

We continue to enjoy our visit with “our kid’s” until Monday morning when we will have to depart and continue our trip on home. We have been gone from our place in Custer, SD for one month and traveled 2400 miles so far and have at least 1600 more to go………

Come on back Wednesday and check how far we have made it by then.  Thanks for stopping by.

It's so nice that you can travel around and visit everyone and still sleep in your own bed. Can't beat that! Ms Megabyte is wise to be leery of the "little people" till they learn how to treat small animals. Our cats hide from children too. Have a safe trip.

Ms. Megabyte is not the only one afraid of 'little people'. Looks like you guys are having a fine time. Gotta love this RV lifestyle:))
