Nice Way to Spend a Monday

I thought I'd share a little bit of personal information about me :) as told by our daughter on her blog:  PunchInTheFaceDesign...

Yesterday we had the chance to see Bob and Jane.  They are parents of Adam's good friend Tim.  We lived near each other in Fairfax Virginia for years.  Now Jane and Bob have retired and have a beautiful home in the quaint Victorian town of Rugby, Tennessee.

It is a couple of hours from Mayardville, TN where we are staying, so we met each other about half way, along I-75 at Cove Lake State Park.  They have a restaurant there where we met for lunch.

That is one of the best things about being full-timers--being able to see friends all over America!
After visiting for a couple of hours it was time to say goodbye.  We sure love seeing these folks!

Then we went over to the Escapees RV Park in nearby Heiskell, TN.
They are renovating the park and really doing a lot of construction.  I thought I'd give a look for all our Escapees friends out there.  It looks like the park will be doubled in capacity when they are done.

When we got back to Joan and Mike's it was mid-afternoon.  Mike got home from work and did some work on his riding lawn mower.  He fixes a lot a mowers and always has a few in his shed to work on.

By then it was time eat and we had a simple dinner of hamburgers and potato salad.  Yum.

We sat outside and enjoyed the beautiful evening before we went back to the coach and saw a great basketball game.  We had trouble pulling for either team because we are Duke fans but you gotta lover what Butler has done during the NCAA tournament.

That was our day~ hope yours was a good one too!  Thanks for viewing the Roadrunner Chronicles!
