quick update

We have been getting settled in here in Jamestown and will probably be here until it is time to move to our summer work camping gig in Terre Haute, Indiana.
This campground is a "work in progress". They have built a brand new shower house but cannot use it because the permits to put in a larger septic for it have been delayed. They have purchased an adjoining 100 acres to develop and this is causing a "hiccup" in the permits being issued. The campground itself is a dis-jointed affair of gravel sites just off the road and another row of sites "up the hill". We are in the upper part and the lower, where the new shower house is, is pretty much un-usable at the moment. They have a lot of work to do to turn this place around but they seem to be in a position to get it done. Maybe next year or the following year this will be a place that we could recommend to others, we'll see.

Sunday we got a good dose of "Grandkids" by spending the afternoon at our daughter and son in law's house just up the road. They had a great meal for us with Ryan cooking burgers on the grill and Amanda making all the fixin's. We had a great time having a belated Christmas party, opening gifts and telling stories. :-)

Monday our son Matthew came over and spent the day with us. We had a nice day with him running errands.

The rest of the week looks like more of the same. We need to renew our drivers license' and we have an appointment to get our taxes done (yuck, not looking forward to that bill!). We also want to take advantage of this spring like weather and do some bike rides as well as maybe our first Indiana float trip in the Sea Eagle. I'll keep you posted.
