Excuses, excuses, excuses! We went, we played, we came home and we got back to “work” again. Now it’s 2 weeks later and H has fussed that there is no blog – yet.
H invited 2 of our grandsons, Calvin and Levi to camp and kayak with us down at Wally World in Loudonville Ohio. Grandpa H took them there last year and I forgot to pack the most important ingredient for their morning pancakes but they enjoyed the trip to McDonalds better anyway! This trip was our last chance to use up our “FREE Camping” coupon. The guys slept in a tent again, but Grandpa H had it easier this time– instead of sleeping in the back of the truck like a German Shephard, he slept on his comfy bed, next to me in the “condo”! “Wally World Camping Resort” has a very nice swimming pool and a fun little miniature golf course which we all used more than once because with all the rain the week before, the Mohican River was high on its banks and way too raging to let the guys kayak. The rangers had actually closed the river to everyone. C&L are excellent at keeping themselves occupied and they each had a big thick book to enjoy reading. We all slept pretty good that night except for the occasional walnut that fell from the towering tree above us and crashed like a bowling ball on the top of the tent or crash landed on the fiberglass roof above our bed. KABOOM! Wednesday afternoon Grandpa H finally managed to wiggle one kayak down a rock embankment and Calvin settled in for a fast ride around the curve and past the campground. As he approached us, we cheered him on, just like he was in a patriotic parade! He reversed the little orange craft and attempted to go back upstream but his arms couldn’t take much of that! I took his picture a bunch of times and then waved him on as he sped by! H’s daughter Jean drove down to retrieve her sons and joined us for chicken n’ dumplings before they all climbed into their car for the long drive home. Our dear friends, B&C had come down to spend the rest of the week with us for their first free camping. They’ve known Jean since she was a little girl!
Wednesday night was not a good night in either RV. H and I ended up in Mansfield at the emergency room to make sure his swollen ankle and foot was not another blood clot. B&C ended up in Berlin at a vet’s office to attend to their ailing kitty, Abby. I would like to report that both patients are doing well and are feeling much better!
