|Pretty in Pink!|
|Our truck and 5th Wheel Travel Trailer almost set up for the first night in Ohio on our trip to Alaska. See all the water - we had heavy rains and was it muddy around this site.|
Hubby drove 392 miles yesterday through overcast, dark, misty and foggy weather with heavy rains to reach our first campground in Streetsboro, Ohio. It's a pretty campground with large ponds. Boy, were we tired. We didn't watch TV or DVDs...just too pooped out. We sat in our easy chairs and talked until bedtime. Streetsboro is a town near Kent, Ohio where we met while attending Kent State University. It's about an hour's drive east of Cleveland, Ohio - the area where we were both raised.
Tomorrow we are visiting the new RV Museum at Elkhardt, Indiana and we should have some vintage RV photos to share with you.

|Can't wait to read these on the road...|
|Along with the "Milepost" these are the books we will be referring to on our trip...|
BEFORE - 2004
BEFORE - 2004 - Serviceberry tree and one of “little” Leyland Cypress evergreens to the right
BEFORE - 2004 - we planted six Leyland Cypresses - our back yard is very narrow - that is our neighbor’s garden. The River Birch tree hasn't been planted yet.
BEFORE - 2004 - the Leyland Cypress evergreens planted just inside our property line.
|BEFORE - 2004 - looking down our back yard property (just planted Leyland Cypress evergreens) line to our side yard which goes all the way back to the big trees . Our side yard is pie shape and is the largest part of the yard.|
|AFTER - 2010- same view today - the back yard is totally private! That's our River Birch tree in front of the Leyland Cypress Evergreens. The white bark shows up beautifully in winter.|
Our “Deep Red Beauty”
|The black really makes the colors POP!|
|Setting up colors...row by row|
|This yarn, "Simply Soft", is so super duper soft. It feels wonderful!|
|But.. black yarn is a bear to crochet!|
|Black Beauty... not even half done....|
