What there IS going to be is a trip to Utah for the 150th Anniversary of the Transcontinental Railroad, one of the most life altering events in history. If you're going to go to such an event, you might as well join the party. Rather hard to see in this terrible selfie, I actually found a company in Washington State that makes these theatrical gowns for probably less than I could buy the material.
Unfortunately this one is too large ... one of the problems of shopping on-line. There's another one on it's way to replace it. So yup ... I'll be heading out with the Golden Spike Railroad group to Utah next year for the celebration. I'm pretty excited!!
All of a sudden it dawned on me I didn't know where Cooper was. I don't even know how long he was missing from the couch. That's so unlike him. I wandered the house, calling his name. He never comes when you call his name, so I tried shaking the snack bag. Nothing.
I finally located him sitting here at the back door. It seems he was sulking because I wasn't playing the ball game. After about 20 minutes, I finally asked if he wanted to play the ball game and he came running. That's his new name now .... Ball Game.
I tried to patiently wait for 3:00 when it was time to head on down to the Magic Kingdom's Knights of the Round Table Room where we all meet around ... you guessed it ... the round tables. I had my usual coke while we listened to corny jokes from the Court Jester. It's good to laugh before the onslaught of peasants.
At 4:15 I ascended the grand staircase to find the Castle Lawyer was not there and no one had set up the table. I quickly gathered supplies and began to count the bank. Luckily for me, one of the Knights came over to help count cards as the peasants flooded the corridor. It's always chaos for two hours straight.
Right off the bat, one of our volunteers who plays, had three extra cards. I know ... they stick together is the most common excuse. We know this game, which is why we count. Funny, it happens a LOT!! In fact, it happened to one lady FOUR times. She told me she only had four sheets. I counted. She had SEVEN!! See what they try to do?? You have to be on guard every second. It happened several more times throughout the night.
At long last it was time to head home. I was exhausted, so I crashed on the couch for a few minutes with the puppies. Just look at this face!!
One more interesting thing happened. I never check the weather unless I'm heading out in the RV. Last night, I looked to see if it was going to rain. My weather station had a big blue question mark right in the middle. What?? They are actually admitting they have no clue what the weather is going to be? I'm sorry I didn't take a picture. It was epic!!
The good news is they predict rain for the next 7 out of 8 days and boy do we need it!! Except now I have to double check that leak in the back slide of my rig. I just can't seem to figure out where the water is coming from. A big piece of plastic may be required for the time being.
