We met Jerry & Laura in a KOA campground in Memphis,Tn. across the street from Graceland. That was in 1998. My attraction was, they were pulling a 1941 Willis Custom. It was called Bad & Black. It was painted Black with Pearl Blue and had ghost flames.

Later that evening we all went down to Beale Street to see the action. They took the bus down and we drove the Black Widow, 68 Chopped Bug. We ran into them about 8:00 at night. We all were talking a little loud from sampling all the various drinks from the clubs. They asked how we got down there. They needed a ride back home. The bus they had come down on left at 5;:00 o'clock and it was a $ 50 cab ride back to the campground. We only had two seats in the Bug because it had a big stereo in the rear, but some how we squeezed in. We continued on to party until late in evening . Susie was the DD and got us home safely.

We stayed in touch all these years. At the time they had a motorhome and later changed to a 5th wheel. They called a couple of weeks ago and said we are coming to see you.While we were traveling around the country for 3 years we stopped in Reno for a few days. They took us out to all their favorite hang outs, so now it was our turn.

Here we are on the back porch at our house getting ready for a big spaghetti and meatball dinner.

They stayed at Beverly Beach on the ocean front. It was the first campground we stayed at when we came to Florida.

They were initially going to stay around two weeks and later changed it to a month. 2 reasons.

They got a better rate and they were having a great time.

They came in a fifth wheel and left in a motorhome.

While here they were looking around and found a 37 ft motorhome. They had been thinking about it for a while and there were a lot of choice's and this one was priced right. They did it. Now they had a 5th wheel in Florida, a dually diesel truck, and a 37 ft diesel motorhome.

We didn't get pictures of the new motorhome because the last two nights we went down it was blowing and raining hard.

They ended up selling the 5th wheel to a dealer and bought a tow bar with a braking system on it for the truck. I'll get Jerry to send me pictures of the set up and post them on here later.

They are leaving this morning for Reno.

We left Florida last Thursday for Virgina for two weeks, so we didn't get to see them off. We are in the country in Roanoke Va right now. There is no internet out here. I have my i phone beside me and have the hot spot activated and my computer is using it for access to the internet. Now that's technology. A long ways from our old RV days when we didn't have cell phones or internet access.

Susie liked sitting under the awning, like the old days.
