Where I stayed
Shreveport County Fairgrounds
I also attended a nice Red Hat luncheon (with chicken, veggies, rice, salad and dessert, instead of the usual simple tea and cookies) with about 250 other ladies all dressed in red and purple.
Although, all those comparatively tiny clothes were, for the most part, from 1860 to 1910, I remember wearing, in the 1950s, some 'Mae Wests' or 'corsets' that weren't as extreme as those antiques, but they were for the same purpose of making a smaller waist, etc. I also know that in my 20s-early 40s I wore my shoes about 1 1/2 - 2 sizes smaller than today.
As usual, the Rally had lots of seminars that we could chose from to attend, to learn about lots of different RV things like some of the mechanical and/or technical things in a RV; or how to clean/maintain the many parts both inside and outside; how to join a RV caravan group; lots of tips about cel or internet communication and many more.
Then they also have lots of booths for vendors to show and sell their products. Many of the exhibitors hop scotch around to several rallies, so you sort of get to know them. Two of them, I've purchased from before and did again this time, too. One is a couple from Mass. who were at the FMCA Rally that we attended in Vermont last July. They sell the season packets for making many very delicious dips and also some great serving containers. So, I, of course, had to buy some more. They'll be a big hit this winter at our pot lucks and/or other gatherings, etc.
I've known PJ for about 23+ years and for those of you that might not know, or have forgotten, she bought my reservations business from me on Maui, then a little over 4 years ago, she moved the business from Maui to Florida. Ain't technology wonderful? Most callers don't even know that they're not talking to someone on Maui.
While we're at PJ's, we get to catch up on all the "who has done what" and what-all is happening on Maui, etc. and we go to the near-by Bingo parlor a couple of times a week. It's fun, even when we don't win anything but of course, much better when we win! The weather has been pretty good....warm enough days (high 70s-low 80s) and great for sleeping, cool nights (low 50s).
When we leave PJ's on Nov 26 we'll be heading for Texas and I'll have 2-3 last chapters of our travels for 2010.
