We are running out of things to do (or can do) at this stop in our RV trek. So, we are just chilling until we check out of this nice timeshare condo, pack up in the motorhome and wander the countryside again till the next condo stop.

Boy, people in Montana do not seem to drink liquor very much. I had a craving for a gin-and-tonic which I forgot to pack, and had to drive 40 miles round-trip to get some.

Pretty close to a 40 mile round trip for anything here!

People here in Colorado like to drink most anything, unless, of course they would prefer to smoke it!

Up in my AZ high-country 2nd home, I would have to drive 80 miles RT to get to a decent grocery or liquor store.

Here in this small town, there are a couple of small liquor stores closer to where I am staying. However, they either close for the season, or open only a few days a week. That led me to think people here do not drink much, hence there is no demand. I had to drive to a larger town.

Spent all day yesterday visiting the grandbaby. We hadn't intended to since we'd seen her just one week earlier, but mutually agreed we needed one more 'fix' before leaving on our 6-week European river cruise adventure. It was a great, great day, and we both woke up with smiles on our faces.

Today I met a girlfriend for an eight mile hike, followed by an easy/casual lunch out. We had acai bowls, my first, and I have to say I became an instant fan. I can see doing a lot of these post-hike come summer.

Plans for the rest of the day are to finalize packing, make a quick trip to the store to purchase some last minute items, read, take a nap, then assemble dinner from items still needing to be eaten before we depart, primarily produce.

Went to lunch an hour or two ago, and broke off a tooth. Today is my dentist's day off, and I didn't know if this was an emergency or not so I called him on his cell phone. He answered and was very kind but said that as long as it doesn't hurt, it's not an emergency and he can deal with it on Monday.

Besides, it turned out that he decided to take his son out fishing today, so he was talking from a boat bobbing about in the middle of Lake Ponchartrain. I told him that fishing with his son was pretty important, too.

Anyway, not a banner day but somehow it's comforting to know that even in 2016, fathers still take their sons fishing out on the lake on a sunny spring day.

Wow, you are just not having any luck at all with dental stuff! Glad to hear there's no pain from it so there's no immediate rush to get it fixed.

It's enough to make one feel a bit cranky.

Today my Mother died. She was 99 and a real lady .She lived a long and great life and was always the perfect Mother .She has been declining in the last few months but a visit to the hospital sped up her decline . Today she prayed with my Sister ,had last rights and took a nap which she did not awake from. I am so sad but also so thankful that I had my Mother for so long . She died 35 years almost to the day that my Dad died . I am off to Pa. to help bury her and celebrate her life .

Condolences, Moe. Cherish those happy memories. My mom died 11 years ago and I still think about her daily.

Sorry for your loss Moe, even with the declining health and being mentally prepared, the finality of her being gone is never easy.

Thanks for the tip, but I'm in procrastinate mode. I'm waiting to see what v2 will have. I'm personally hoping for more sensors. And if I wait long enough, I might avoid getting one completely.
