Home base, Deer Run RV Resort, had their Halloween celebration last weekend. Right in the throws of getting packed & unpacked, trick or treaters! Yep, 289 kids coming to trick or treat! How do I know that, you may ask? I had 11 pieces of candy left. There were hay rides, scary dessert contests, wiener roasts, monster mash (dance) and a yard decorating contest. It was a lot of fun and it was a beautiful weekend. Here are a few pix of my treaters.

On delivery day of the Lodge, the vent got torn from the roof. The workers had to go back and get a new one to replace it. In all the hussle and bussle of running in and out and strange people, Sedona goes missing. Off I go in the car looking for her everywhere. Neighbors go in their golf carts and then soon everyone in the neighbor hood is in their golf carts looking for her and yelling her name. It's like a buzz of bumble bees on the roads. My neighbor, Roger and a retired sheriffs deputy, asked if I had looked in the house. He said that was one of the first places police were trained to look. I said I did look at all her new hiding places but I would look again. This time I looked in the toilet area (it has a door) and sure enough, there she was, shaking like a leaf and huddled as far back into the corner as she could get. I thought she had run out while we were so busy. I was so happy when I saw her, I'll have to say, my eyes leaked a little. Another reason for a golf cart.
I have the best neighbors, Linda and Roger, yes I have another Roger in my life. Anyway, they come on the weekends from Knoxville. They had a rough time with the people who lived in my lot and they are just so happy that I'm here. Roger, my 2nd house husband or is it the 3rd (so many I can't keep up), has been so helpful. I think I told you about my mattress in The Whim being terrible, well Roger took it home with him and took it to a mattress factory in Knoxville and had a memory foam cut to go on top of it. He has also said he will underpin and put sun screen on my windows on the Lodge. That will be a spring and summer project. Linda and I have a lot in common and so far, get along very well.
Had a fun time the other day, it was laundry time. Sedona loves to go riding and off she went with me. It was a success until it was drying time. The driers were all not working. I had to call the office, she sent over someone and they fixed it, 40 minutes later. What a waste of a perfectly good day! I see a washer/dryer in my building before long.
That just about catches you up with what's going on. I have Direct TV connected now and I may not want to leave. Ah but alas, I must go and I'll head out in a week or so. The colors are so beautiful up here as is the weather. Going to see Jonathan and Taylor before I get to Citrus Ridge.
