Another week

Another week has gone by and I can hardly believe that only 3 more weeks and we will be heading to Benson, AZ. I am really looking forward to getting on the road again. This last week has been busy for us. There is a lot to do to close down a park. I have learned so much about the maintenance of a park. The 4 man maintenance department here a Hart Ranch has answered 1844 service calls since May 1st. That's water issues, electrical problems, washing machine and dryer problems, even to helping find lost people. The had a lot of people that didn't know there own rig and how to get the TV to work or their WiFi. We had people plugging their electric cords into the wrong recepticals, but that's life at a RV park.
This last week I have gotten tired of beading and decided to start doing some more of my genology. So, I pulled out the books and starting looking into my grandparents. You know it is such fun just to have something interesting to do. I have been working on this thing on and off for 15 years. I discovered my Mott side back to 1670 in the Great Neck of Virginia and the Jungjohann's to the 1840's in Iowa they came from the Schwige/Holstein section of Germany. Then there was my dad;s mom a Mccammon. The last time I look which was about 4 years ago I was stuck on her grandfather Thomas Paskins Mccammon. Well, I found him and the one before him was Samuel Mccammon in Kentucky. Anyway, Thomas was buried in NE and we will stop in that little town on our way south. Having some kind of hobby or actually having several hobbies really can give focus to the RV lifestyle.
Sept 11 just passed and I watched all the action on the TV. I was amazed at all the people that we never heard of until now. I hope we never forget that day, but I also hope we will move forward with our lives and live as if today was the last day of our life and live it with meaning. Helping someone else always brings some kind of blessing. Just a thought. Till next week Happy Camping, Kathy
