Up early and in the hotel lobby while the lovely Mrs_Bob sleeps in.

Bloomington, IN is a small college town with a big college. Give or take 40,000 students in a town that looks like its normal population is 1/2 that size? Its also one of the liberal bastions in a conservative state.

The town is very much like the TV show PORTLANDIA with hipsters and homeless and there is a drinking game here where the sane people sit at bars and cafes and people watch. The game is called "Hipster or Homeless" and more often than not it appears the people walking by are Hipsters who need a bath.

Just about ready to leave and drive our son and family to Love Field in Dallas so they can fly to Boston. Our grand daughter is starting at New England Law School so they still have a bunch of stuff to do. Most of it, accommodation and the like was done over the phone but still needs to be checked out. Good luck to them and her. After a week in Boston getting her settled in my son, his wife and youngest grandson fly back to the UK. I'll miss them.

Bringing the dogs to get their shots before our trip next week. Then hauling the camper out to set up for a country music festival the missus is going to. Then coming back and loading up the truck camper into the truck for me to go to our regular camp this weekend.

Had a busy morning here, doing the usual payday runaround stuff.
Stopped at Penn Station for a sub, domestic fun followed- then napped for an hour.

Talked to Ty about the new home they are getting, 5 bedrooms and a pond in the country.

I WILL be going there this weekend! Love it when a plan comes together
Just finished off dinner. Baked tatie with creamed spinach.

I know Jerry.
The other place has a pond and they're never allowed outside on their own.

We are kicking around the idea of me moving there to be with them.
That's going to take some time for me as I love where I am right now jobwise with everything.
I have been looking at other nursing jobs in the Defiance area, one of which is where I'd worked all those years ago.
It's like this was meant to be, and I'm going along with it to see how it all pans out.
That is what this weekend is all about and why it was so important for me to get it off.
Going where the love is.
Family.

I am hun.
My 2017 didn't start out so well as it was.
Seems like after I lost Gretchen, then everything snowballed into a thousand different directions from what I'd always thought would be just a simple life going into retirement.

But then, I have never been a stranger to change lol

Sounds like big changes in the future.

My lovely wife is going to a country music festival this weekend so I brought the big camper out to set up for her and a few friends. I was up and at it at 7am outside loading up the truck camper for me to use this weekend at our seasonal site.

Well, I had a nutty day at work, but what else is new?
Nahh, just real busy, thought it was never going to come to an end.

Anyway, been feeling excited about tomorrow.
Found out the house is actually off 424 across from the reservoir.
Lots of walking places to explore and be in the great wide open.

Ali asked me about what to plan for meals.
Told her were are not cooking, we are going to visit and relax!
Knowing Ty he'll want KFC or something so we'll buzz into the one on South Clinton.

I should be leaving around noon tomorrow and won't be back until Sunday night or Monday morning.
Probably going to attend Mass at St. Mary's Sunday.
Talking about trying to catch the meteor showers if possible.
Perhaps Ty going to bbq Sunday afternoon.

I am going to spoil Maddy and Elaina rotten too.

My sister came into town for 2 weeks from London. She arrived the same day we came home from taking Melen down to law school and has been staying with my brother. She also brought her 2 year old son on this trip but her husband had to stay in the UK to work.

We will be having them over today, along with my brother & sister in law. Just to relax by the pool for the day.

Yesterday we spent the day at the county fare, then stopped at a local lakeside restaurant for a light dinner. We were seated right next to the stage so we got dinner and a show.

Sitting by a campfire contemplating if I should go kayaking this morning or just sit here nursing a hangover.

The missus has our big camper at a country festival. Just the dogs and I this weekend.

Yep. This is a much needed calm before the storm. 3 weeks on the road with 5 kids and 2 dogs in a camper. Should be interesting. We haven't had all 5 kids together in over a month.
