Back Home in Indiana

Yes we are back home in Indiana. I really did try to get to this sooner to day but didn’t work out that way as you can see. Yesterday evening we were pooped. I was in bed trying to read by 8:30 and turning the light out by 9:00. We got quite a bit done after we got home yesterday. Brought most of the food out of Jennie from the refrigerator, freezer and cupboards. Then had to put it all away in the house. Also went through six months worth of mail. Luckily only a couple of bills that needed taking care of. Guess I should be glad for the Internet and paperless billing and paying. Nice to sit and read all our Christmas cards though.

One of the hardest things with coming home is getting used to going up and down all the stairs. From the walk out basement where all our hobbies are kept to the top floor where the computers are. Up and down and down and up. But back to our last day on the road.
I mentioned that we left the campground while it was still dark out as we were both up and couldn’t sleep because of the trains. This is going through Saint Louis. At least I didn’t get us lost this time.
Once into Illinois it started to get light out. A kind of pretty sunrise considering all the clouds.
As it got daylight we started to see all the standing water in the fields. Looked like we were passing lakes when we really were going through farm land.
And by Illinois the gasoline had gone up to $3.59 a gallon. What happened to the 3.09 in Oklahoma? Not too much to take pictures of crossing Illinois that I haven’t already photographed many many times.
So here into Indiana – only about 100 miles from home.
And more flooded farm lands around the Wabash and White Rivers.
Oh Boy – Brown County – 30 miles from home.
And then Nashville our town – seven miles from home.
The little (four blocks long) main street of Nashville.
The last mile home. It has sound.
And here is Jennie out front. A lot of the trees already have their new spring leaves on them. Another week or two and everything will be really green.
And a quick look over the porch rail towards the woods. Looks like all our little fishies made it through the winter. They were waiting for Bill to feed them.
Took a look in the 1st floor – main – bathroom and saw that the ceiling has quite a bit of water damage to it from the leak in the upstairs bathroom. Will call the insurance company tomorrow to see what if anything can be done to repair/replace it. The wood floor also has some minor damage from the standing water. And the tile floor upstairs is now loose---arrgg---always something. Thank heavens our friend checked on the house every couple of days or this could have been a real catastrophe. Seems like it might be a leak in a pipe in the wall behind the toilet.
While we were in Mexico I read in our hometown newspaper that there was a problem with the county water. I wrote about it. Lots of iron in it was discoloring the water. It was okay to drink but not to wash clothes in!!! Anyway – in the basement is a ½ bath. Usually no one uses the toilet down there during the winter so I’ve got into the habit of flushing it once or twice when we get home to make sure it works okay. Well let me tell you I had the scare of a life time. Thought my heart was going to jump out of my mouth. When I flushed it the bowl filled up with BLOOD RED water! EEK!! “Somethings been decapitated in the toilet tank.” Ran through my mind. Before I made a fool of myself though I remembered the iron in the water. After a couple of flushes it was running clear again. But I still haven’t lifted the tank lid to make sure nothing horrible is in there.
This morning we had to go to town – Columbus – to get gasoline – here in Nashville it is 3.79 in Columbus at Sam’s Club ONLY 3.47. Get poor Willie washed he was still covered with red dust from Sedona and traveling. Also to stock up on meat, chicken and fish from Sam’s Club and to see if any of my favorite authors had new books out. A couple did. Whoopie.
Also to Menards to see our friend who takes care of the house and to Wal*Mart just to replace what we used while in Mexico. Jelly Beans and Ice Cream.

And that’s about it for yesterday and today. Still a lot left in Jennie and then we need to clean her from top to bottom as we are going to sell her. Hate to do it but we sure don’t need two RVs.
