    My FIRST reaction was: Broken dishes?? if you're living in an RV why haven't you invested in melamine dishes or at least the unbreakable corningware ones
    none of my yoga pants have ever been to yoga.

    I suppose we could throw paper plates at each other...

    The river is back within it's banks. Now it's just cold. It should pass once the weekend gets here.

    Monello thinks he is king of the forum, now. Just keep that in mind.

    Last night the local community gardens had steak night. The gardens is a sort of Wentworths meets a classy flea market. They have an odd mix of retail with the bulk being plants and assorted outdoor garden items. It's hippy chic in an Austin, TX sort of way. It's 1 of those businesses that you hope it makes it. They are a business but you get the impression that they are striving to make a difference.

    The first time we went there we didn't really have any expectations. It was a just pop in and see what is going on. Vrai got a mum for our picnic table. There's a stocked pond and they have loaner poles. Kids have access to chalk so they can channel their inner Michelangelo and do murals on the sidewalk. The outside is dotted with picnic tables, elevated bar tables and several fire pits.

    Our steaks were well seasoned. The check in process was a bit clunky. The line to check in was really slow. You got a ticket with a number on it. Steaks were cooked in batches of 20. We met our neighbors there. It wasn't planned, they saw us and came over as we were getting our table. Since it was nice, we decided to eat outside. The band was busy setting up and doing their checks. There was a cash bar but not a lot of beer selections. After we got our steaks we went inside to get the salad and potatoes. The spuds were enormous. We ended up chatting and comparing notes with our tablemates. He's also retired military, so we had a lot in common.

    It was a pleasant evening with good company. The music was decent but it wasn't the focal point of the night, at least not for us.

    And we now have our cable TV back. The campground updated their cable but ran into some compatibility issues. So we used the antenna and got 9 channels, 4 of which were spanish language. It's 68 degrees out. We have the screen door open and life is good.
