Places We Have Called Home In 2019

Home Is Where We Park It:  Turkey Creek, Hollister, Missouri

August 26, 2019

Temperature 74

Short – Sweet – To the Point

Not too much to write about today.  So here is the condensed version.

We both had a bad night, neither of us could get to sleep.  So we arose tired and in need of a nap later in the day.

This morning there was a deep fog blanketing the campground.  And the sound of heavy equipment.  They were finally paving the entrance ramp to the campground.

We went to McDonald’s for breakfast.  Fast and convenient.

Next to WalMart to drop off the old oil and pick up another quart of oil.  Seems the V10 takes 7 quarts, not 6 quarts.

We went shopping for groceries.  We don’t know when we’ll be as close as we are to major supermarkets.

A quick lunch at Wendy’s.

Home again and just in time.  We no more than got in the door and the thunder began to rumble and it went dark, I mean really dark.  It was like nightfall had come hours early.  I quickly got all the awnings in.  Just in time

The wind began to gust.  Trees began to sway.  Then the rain came down in sheets.


And a river ran through our site.



One hour later it was all over.  More, they say, is on the way tonight.

Oh yes, we both took naps.

That was our short, sweet and to the point day on The Road of Retirement.  Tonight we’ll watch Ninja Warriors and play a game of Mexican Train.  We’ll also wait for the next onslaught of storms.  Let’s hope they are over as quick as the first one.

Thanks for joining us again.  Hope your day was dryer than ours.  We always appreciate your company and comments.  Catch you tomorrow.

These are the voyages of  Graybeard and it’s two intrepid travelers.  Our continuing mission: to explore as many new states as possible, to seek out new acquaintances and make new friends, to boldly go where we have not been before

See you on down the road!



  1. Wow, you really did have rain. Good you got your work done yesterday or today you would have had to backstroke yourself under the RV. That did sound like a good idea to nap while the pitter patter on the roof relaxed you. Hope that storm moved out.
