On Tues. Nov. 9th we slept in! (compared to Monday) It was before 6 when Bill took Gibbs out and I dropped back into slumber until I heard the “one paw, two paws” etc. from downstairs. 😊 He must have done it perfectly because he got a treat before rejoining me up in the bedroom with his chew rope. I didn’t get up to make the bed until closer to 6:30.
We missed seeing Kenny last night as it was after 9:30 that he got home. I read in bed for a while but soon turned the light off. This morning, we set an alarm to be sure to see our friend before he left for work at 7:30. We came this way so we could see him so didn’t want to miss out. We took Gibbs out when we heard doors closing. Kenny was taking the garbage out and the boys were getting ready to catch the school bus.
It was so good to see him and Gibbs was better outside than he would have been indoors. I was pleased when Lynn came out as well so we could meet his better half. ♥ I’m sure he’ll agree. We said our hellos, thank you’s and goodbyes within half hour, if that, and they headed off to work. Bill and I walked down the row of sheds on his little farm to check out the chickens, roosters, ducks and turkeys. 😊 We had some cereal and hit the road ourselves by 9.

Hey guys! Is that a new trailer?? 😂😂
We followed the directions that Kenny and Lynn gave us to get to Hwy 24 but instead of going further south only to have to head up to our destination along the route, we stayed on that good highway right across IN to IL, catching Interstate 55S at Chenoa. The two-lane highways were perfect today as we were in no hurry to sit in a Walmart lot for longer than we had to. The roads were well kept and the small towns quite interesting, giving us the personal touch.
Our rv’ing friend and blogger, Doug, is expecting us in Bloomington, IL for the night. Without any room at his home lot for our Suite, he has directed us to a Walmart lot within a couple of miles. It will be nice to see him and Yuma and to finally meet the infamous Dolly. ♥ We had our lunch somewhere along the way, just eating our sandwiches in the truck and Bill pulled in for a fuel up at a Caseys. The price this time was $3.75/gal.
It was around 2:15 when we pulled into the Walmart, it was very easy to follow our gps to its location and get parked. Once we set up and rested for a few minutes, I texted Doug and within a few minutes he arrived to pick us up and take us back to their place. We all got a chuckle out of watching Yuma and Gibbs outside and then later, inside. We think they’ll get along famously this winter down in the south where they can run off their leashes. 😊
Our ride to their house since we
weren't unhooking BB
Dolly is a real sweetheart; I felt a connection immediately. Their home is so cozy, I loved it! We sat inside for about an hour and got to know each other as best we could in a short span of time. Meeting, from a distance, little Fergie is even smaller than I first thought from the pictures I’d seen. ♥ Dolly sent us home with some turkey bacon treats for Gibbs. He’ll love them! Doug drove us back to the Suite and we agreed to meet Doug and Yuma again sometime in December in Arizona.
Bill and I walked into Walmart (with masks on) to pick up some bread and treats for Gibbs. (fyi - not many masks and some that wore them had them below their noses! duh) We talked about going out to eat but it needed to be someplace we could walk to and there just wasn’t anything close enough. ☹ So, for a fast meal, we bought some mac & cheese and we had some ham slices to have with it. I felt like a zombie for some reason, just needed to catch up on our sleep, I think. We finished the last bit of cheesecake, did dishes and I struggled to finish my post.
It was another great driving day and we made good strides. The cooler weather is headed this way so we want to snub our noses at it and head further south – soon. 😊
