After the ceremony, all were invited to come to the pavilion for coffee & donuts. (Now you know why we gain weight here!) Then Bill and I participated in the Cribbage Tournament. We did pretty good. Stayed in longer than we thought. It was fun though...lots of teasing with fellow campers. Dottie Z. prepared homemade spaghetti for about 18 of us on Saturday night. Smelling that cooking while we were playing cards was mouthwatering! To end the evening Sat. night, I went to play Bingo while Bill stayed back at the trailer. I didn't have any luck there either! But it was nice to get out after spending so many rainy, cold days in the trailer.
Sunday morning started out with the annual Memorial Day Weekend Pancake Breakfast for $1.00 per person! It was yummy, as usual. Randy Q. was the pancake maker. He asked if I wanted 2 & I said yes if I was allowed. He gave me 2 the size of a quarter! What a tease! We had pancakes, eggs, juice & coffee. I had to go by myself as Bill was under the weather. Starting around 1:30AM he came down with the stomach flu.
This afternoon the campground had a horseshoe tournament. Gosh, what a gang across the road from us at the horseshoe pits! It was pretty noisy when they first started, but as the day went on, the losers started to drift away. I heard a rumor that Dick L. had played 30 some games. Not sure, but I think he was the winner!
Tonight I got together with some of the gang for turkey & all the trimmings. There was about 13 with every one bringing something for the trimmings. Poor Bill was sick still & couldn't come to eat with us. This evening he had a bowl of cereal & so far, so good.
Went around to do my "Latrine Queen" duties this afternoon. Wasn't too bad (except for the grass everywhere) with only one overflow in one of the ladies rooms. Got initiated with that one. As long as that's as bad as it gets! Ya Right, like that's going to happen! They tell me the best is yet to come!
Well, since the campground is full, there will be quite a parade of campers leaving tomorrow. Hopefully they won't have to break camp in the rain. Sounds like that is the forecast, but maybe it will hold off.
Well, I guess that is about the news of the past few days. Bill starts his honey dipping job on Tuesday, so hope his stomach has settled down by then!!
We will let you know when any more exciting news happens or if we do anything besides "hang out" here at Hidden Valley, Jamestown, NY........until later.........The Traveling Cardinal's
