(Joliet, IL) Hi 72 Lo 47 -- It's been great sleeping weather the last few nights. It just can't get any better as far as the weather. Nice, 70-degree, sunny days.
We've been here a week, so it was time to dump the tanks. It took us one hour and 10 min from start to finish to get the RV ready for the move, hitch up, tow over to the dump station, and come back and get re-set up. It's kind of a pain, but necessary when you're in place for two weeks or more and don't have a sewer hookup.
Our son Rick loves the way I make chicken and dumplings, and he always wants me to make them for him when we visit. So around 4:00 we left for his place, and stopped at a grocery store on the way to pick up the necessary supplies. We got to his house before he and Laura got home from work, which allowed me time to make everything and have it ready when they got home. We had a nice meal with Rick, Laura, step-grandson Joey and step-granddaugher Ellice (the recent high school graduate). Everyone seemed to enjoy the meal, which made me feel good. We spent the rest of the evening talking and visiting, then left for home around 10. A nice, enjoyable evening with the family.
