Sunday, October 19—The First Day of the Rest of Our Lives

Another busy morning awaited us today, Sunday.  Up early, we readied the motorhome for it’s final move south; we will spend a few days in central Arkansas contracting with a builder for a house in Hot Springs Village, and visiting grands and kids.  Dumping the tanks in darkness, we were on the road at first light, 7:15 AM.  Kay drove the Expedition and I drove the motorhome towing the Honda CR V loaded down with “toys”, i.e. bicycles and golf clubs.  We arrived at Maumelle COE Park on the Arkansas River at Little Rock, only to find a near full campground resulting from a rare U of A football game in Little Rock, the state fair, and gorgeous fall weather.   The campground was chaotic as many campers were leaving and others coming in; one idiot had blocked a oneway road with his truck and trailer, and his wife was directing traffic to drive on the grass!  We settled in a nice 30 amp site.  We drove to Maumelle to attend a party celebrating Ridge’s 3rd birthday—lots of sugar and kids on sugar! 1410890144195 We then drove to Trinity United Methodist Church for a concert by the Annie Moses Band—perhaps one of the best groups I’ve ever heard.  Comprised of 6 Julliard trained siblings, an award-winning father who played the piano, and an award-winning percussionist and an award-winning vocalist, the classically trained band played a variety of music.  Photos are from their website.  Awesome!  And what a way to start celebrate the first day of the rest of our lives.
