Another day at the rally!

We had thought the possibility was good that would leave the rally today since it was supposed to be another hot day and our front A/C unit is out. But we had a cool night and the motorhome was very comfortable this morning when we got up. The sky was overcast so we thought that might keep it cooler for today.

We started off with morning coffee at the main hall, then took in some more of the display coaches. I found a floor plan I liked. Too bad it is just like the one we saw at Elkhart Campground. We met the owners, who bought it a few months ago and have had a nightmare of a time keeping it on the road with all the repairs, etc. In fact, they are now in negotiations to encourage Winnebago to buy it back because it is a lemon. Oh well. . . I will keep what I have.

We also took in a couple more seminars including one on Allison Transmissions. They always do a good job and are extremely knowledgeable about their product and can answer any question you might have.

This evening we returned to the main hall and were entertained by Jimmy Fortune. He sang with the Statler Brothers for 21 years and is an extremely talented musician. He is a gifted guitarist and as a singer, has a wide range to his voice. He sang some favorites, including some hymns, and also performed many of the Statler Brothers hits which were his own original compositions. He paid tribute to veterans and to America in song and verse. He entertained us for 90 minutes and was even joined on stage by The Marlins who performed for us last night. It was a great evening of music and everyone enjoyed the performances.

Tomorrow we are going to be leaving soon after morning coffee as we want to get settled back in to the Elkhart Campground. Phaeton Place goes in first thing Monday to have her front A/C replaced. We will be glad to be "cool" again.

Till next time. . .
