Currently it's 70 degrees here - the dew point is 70 and it's 95% humidity. It's like a sauna.
Gotta love IL in August! I wish you two, too, could escape. It's humid in southern Maine now & the natives are complaining, but it's nowhere near that bad!

Hello from Lake Superior! Mutants, if you haven't been to Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore on Michigan's Upper Peninsula ... bucket list! We are enjoying it with my older son, Michael, and his girlfriend, Elizabeth. Couldn't be better!

Hope y'all had fun in the Maritimes! Oh wait ... Mutants ALWAYS have fun.

Di and Larry, we will probably catch up with you on Friday.

Kate says hi.

Pictures to come ...

Little known fact that I just made up was that The Monkeys were first formed as a band called The Mutants!
I think the tune is coming to me...is there a "dum diddy um" in the lyrics somewhere? 😉

Those Maritimers are racing to the border today, so we have to get out the checkered flags. (Or the skull & crossbones flags, maybe. Rum drinks in the offing.)

So glad you're having a good time, but we miss y'all here, too. Waiting for those pics!

And the race is on! Who grabs the gold ring for crossing the border first? News at 10.

Tim, the Hussey's store has 3 floors & 3,000 sq. ft. of retail space. My GSD (step daughter) says it would be good for a shotgun wedding. Wish I'd thought of that!

I went across this center suspension bridge, first one I think I ever went over with that type of construction. Was different.

We know exactly where you are. The city park in Essexville. It used to be $17 a night.

We lived in Bay City for 22 years. I taught school on the west side. Mary Ann worked for Dow Chemical in Midland. Still lots of friends in the area.

Travel easy.

So, eventually we'll be on our way. Plan to head towards Arizona this winter, will be too late for the Texas GC unfortunately.

If I sound tired, we had the GK's over this afternoon, 5 & 7 years old and both very energetic, they just HAD to spend time in the MH.
Congrats Dave and Carol! One step closer to true freedom. It's great out here on the fulltime Rainbow.

Yep! You set up that store in Arkansas and all those related to each other will be flocking to the store for that wedding dress.

(You knew that was coming - hey I though you were giving me a rest.)

Y'all right coasters are having way too much fun. But that's OK 'cuz next week the left coast will be rocked off it's foundation when Dennis, Denise, Wayne, Earlene, Sena and I meet in Oak Harbor, WA. There's room for more RVMs to join us.

Bay City historical homes are awesome. Going sightseeing soon. And nice park. You are correct
