On the Road again!!

We left this morning from Rochelle, Illinois (Julie and Bill's home) and made it to Bloomington-Normal where we used to live!! We headed straight for Avanti's because we just cannot go through there without eating there!! We have went to that restaurant for years now. Our three kids were real little when we first started going there. They have bread to die for!! Sweet and homemade!!

Yesterday we went to Bill and Julie's baptist church in Rochelle!! Met some very nice people. After church we were invited out to the country to a very nice home!! The family has 7 children from ages 10-20!! They were very generous and mde the best meal for us!! While the meal was cooking, Mikey and Bill were out in the machine shed fixing our dolly for our car!! They put it back together and it is as good as new in fact I bet it is better than it was when we got it!!

More people in Julie's family received thegreat gift of a cold!! We had Puffs all over the place and sneezing was a continual happening!! I have had this cold for over 10 days now and it is still hanging on. Mikey has it again..this is his second cold in a month!!

We made it here to Tuscola and got our motor home parked then came down to my parents home and are spending the night with them. Mikey is very tired tonight and is already in bed and it is not 7:00 yet!! He is feeling bad too!! He knows that he has a lot of driving tomorrow!! We are praying for no high winds tomorrow!! That is just awful and Mikey has quite the problem driving the motor home when it is very windy!! Please pray for no wind!!

Oh, last night I was coming out of Julie's house to go home to our motor home. It was dark. We had our car dolly sitting right there! I slipped on the only piece of ice left right there and fell on my fanny hitting the car dolly with my right hand. My two middle fingers are all swollen up and really ache!! They are not broken, thank goodness!! I knew someone would fall in this mess and guess it had to be me!!

Well everyone take care and keep warm!! We are!!

So glad you got the dolly fixed. I'm sorry about the head colds. Hopefully they will leave y'all soon. Ouch on the falling... I've done it before and one reason I don't want to be around the snow & ice. I'm praying for a safe trip home for y'all.

I have that gift (of a cold) too! You forget how miserable a cold can be until you get one.

Sorry about your flip-flop! I hope that swelling goes down.

Oh I wish I could remember the bruises and cuts from that dang tow thingy on the front of the car. Not like he just put it on there. LOL that wind is horrible to drive a RV in, it wears the poor guys out. But, I hope you all get home soon and safely too.
