This weekend we drove to Madras to see Colt show his steer and Cade his 4 pigs at the Desert Storm Jackpot judging at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds. Colt got 2nd place and Cade got 1-3rd and 3- 2nds. Don't fully understand what it is all about, but an education in how the steer and pigs are judged. Proud of the grandsons and look forward how they do at the Deschutes County Fair in August. We attended last year. Wishing you all the best this year.

Later met up in Redmond for dinner.
On Monday after the Jackpot met at the house for dinner. Fixed spaghetti, texas toast, salad and cherry pie. Our last time to be with Hope and family until next May. Our visits were short and not as frequent as in the past due to the many activities of baseball, fair preparation, school and work schedules. Understand and amazed at how organized and involved everyone is.
Builds character and strength for the grandsons. Good work family. Love you all.
We were able to attend several of Cade's baseball games. He plays 2nd base. Also went to one of Colt's. Great job guys.

On Tuesday we took Ernie and Alinda to dinner at the View Cafe at Juniper Golf Club next to RV park. Tuesday they feature prime rib with twice baked potato, vegetables, salad and dessert. Nice view overlooking golf course and rock chucks. Had a nice visit and hope to see them when they pass through Las Vegas this winter on their way to Arizona.Thanks Alinda for yummy assortment of cookies to enjoy on the road.

Wednesday we departed for Stayton and Hillyers Ford for MH oil change . When in Oregon we always use them as the service is good and price of $60 more than fair. We then went to Les Schwab in Salem for brakes on the MH. Due to time constraint and not having parts, could not do the back ones, but said we could probably to another 10,000 miles. Think John wants to have it done by them when we are at Whidbey Island. They do such a good job with service. Wish we could have gotten our tires thru them, but don't think they sell Michelin and FMCA does not have discount agreement with them.
We overnighted HEE HEE ILLAHEE, our favorite RV park in Salem before departing for MCChord AFB in Tacoma for 2 nights.
On the way to Tacoma we stopped at Les Schwan in Chehalis to have them check out ABS light that came on. Took it out for test drive and reset it. Not sure the problem, but it came on again on way to McChord.

Coming thru gate at McChord, right rear side light came off. Guess John was too close to wall. He firmly believes the Owl is the reason for all our mishaps. I keep telling him to be nice to Oscar.

Anyway, looking forward to our month at Whidbey Island NAS, one of our favorite RV Parks.
Still awaiting to receive his renewed driver's license. Should have come before we left.
