Keepin' It Classy
On the Road Again
Track Town, USA: We arrived to Eugene
yesterday afternoon and prepared for the very early (7a) (eeks!) tailgate. I
sliced and diced and then we went to
Marche for dinner
with Mary & Captain Jim (also in town with their RV for the game, and also
slicing and dicing for their tailgate) and had a very lovely meal together. And, yes, thank you
very much, I had Steak Frites and bubbly. Don't know why I even bother to look
at the menu. (Actually, between the four of us, three had Steak Frites.)
Sliced and Diced
We hosted a cast of thousands at our tailgate this morning and we did it without
Woody & Kathy (and their motorhome) as they are in England visiting their #1,
Kelsey. Kelsey's husband turned-in his PhD thesis this week, so there is a
wholotta celebration happening in Durham this weekend. Congrats, Brian!
The Oregon Ducks were mercifully able to beat the Wyoming Cowboys, 48-14. The
amazing Duck quarterback, Heisman candidate Marcus Mariota, made an incredible
leap for a score. There are already so many Oregon track stars on the football
team... maybe Mariota needs to become a long- or high-jumper?
Is this guy for real?
Meanwhile in Los Angeles... Leo went to "Walking
With Dinosaurs" at the Staples Center this afternoon with his Dad and
his Godfather. Leo was super-impressed with the show! Our grandson just
loves his little plastic animals - especially the dinos. Such fun!
Leo wasn't the only member of the family having an adventurous afternoon.
When we returned to the RV park after the Big Win, (to spend an hour
scrubbing every surface of our filthy/dusty RV) our entry steps would not
deploy. Nothing. We tried restarting the RV. We unplugged. We even hit the
battery disconnect button. We tried starting the bus again. We sent a text
to our tech, Brian, and he suggested wiggling (high tech maneuver!) the wire
in the door. Nothing we tried could convince the entry steps to pop out.
Keepin' It Classy in The Eug
No problem. My Driver rigged-up a little situation.
We are heading over to the Oregon Coast in the morning for a little R&R.
Hopefully we will hit a big pot hole along our route, causing our entry
steps to extend again?
Until my next update, I remain, your winning correspondent.
