Saturday, March 3—Arkansas and Ridge

Anxious to get to central Arkansas to see new grandson, Ridge, we tried to depart early, but it was 8 AM before we actually got away.  There was a yapping dog next to us, about 75 yards away, that started yapping at 6 AM, and didn’t shut up until about 7 AM.  Don’t get me wrong, we love dogs, but this was ridiculous.  Even with my hearing loss, it was pretty bad!

We arrived at Maumelle Campground, a US Army Corps of Engineers facility, got a site (sloping downhill), set up, and had lunch.

An then, the time we had been waiting for; we were off to see Ridge.  He had grown a bunch in the 6 weeks since we last saw him, getting taller and seemingly thinner.  He could hold his head up, and grinned a lot.  He’s a fine young man.  I took a brief leave of absence to shop at Sam’s Club for some food necessities at home, and it was a mad house.  All the checkout lines were 4 or five deep, and they had even opened the jewelry counter cash register for those with under 10 items.  A fill up of gasoline in the Honda was followed by a much needed car wash, then it was back to the motorhome for some minor repairs; the mirror on the bedroom door closet had come off the track.  I drove back to Kay’s daughter’s house and spent the rest of the evening playing with Ridge, enticing a few giggles out of him,  He is such a pleasant baby.

Tomorrow, we head for home.
