Catching up!

Sorry we have not posted blogs lately. Not sure who is really interested anyway but here goes! We were very active in Michigan with Rick's sister, Brenda, husband, Jim, and brother, Roger. We first went to a lake and took two days pontooning around while camping at the state park. We went fishing in Lake Michigan and caught enough for a wonderful fish fry that Jim cooked. Then Roger, Rick and I took off a weekend to train to Toronto from Detroit to ride bikes around the city and watch the Rangers play baseball. The last weekend we all went to the Detroit to cheer for both the Rangers and the Tigers, well all except Rick! Now we have traveled to Chicago, where I got to have a wonderful visit with my high school friend, Joni Snyder Bingham, and see the city by one of those hop on, hop off, bus tours. We left Chicago and stayed one night in Des Moines, Iowa and now we are in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Whew! We are having nice travels and no real problems. We did buy four new tires today with the help of Les Hawkey and his wife Dixie who are fellow sojourners. It was nice to share breakfast with them. Our plan now is to head to the Mt. Rushmore area in the Black Hills and see what is going over there. I will try to post pictures in a more timely manner! gail
