Happy Birthday Krikkit!

Pat said her birthday is probably later in the month, but since we really don't know when it is, I celebrate it on August 1st.

We met Deb and Al, from the Chicago area, at Lucky Girls Brewery and The B52 Winery Friday night.  They are also new to Harvest Hosts and they too are former sailors!  Hope our paths cross again when we aren't social distancing!

We made it to Thor in Wakarusa, IN this afternoon.  We will leave our mostly-empty RV with them at 7 a.m. on Monday.  Lucky Chris, he'll get us until it's completed!  There are just a handful of RV's so far and one other couple from Davenport, IA.  We'll see how many come in Sunday because the lot has been pretty full when we've been here before.


We took Krikkit to Memorial Park in Wakarusa after lunch to celebrate her birthday.  She didn't walk very far, but she got to sniff some new smells which always makes her happy.  She also got a couple of treats today.  It took one just to get her to lay under her birthday sign.

This little memorial always makes me cry.  I am happy though, as it is always here and never appears vandalized.  A few of the items in the wagon may change, and I think the dog collar was not here last time.  Dravet's Syndrome is a severe form of epilepsy.  Rest in peace Miles!

  1. It was fun to meet you and Ann (and Kricket). Al and I went on to the Tippy Creek winery in Leesburg IN. We enjoyed a live band, for trucks and slushy Bellini. Very lovely! Safe travels to you all.

    1. Krikkit says "thank you." Sixteen is definitely an accomplishment.
