We’re on our way to the Thousand Trails campground near Arley, AL, Hidden Cove. We hung out with Jeff and Lori the last couple nights. It was just like Moscow – beer, dogs, and spicy stuff. Yesterday we just hung around the RV. We tried food from a food truck near the campground – Melissa’s Place. It was good, and cheap. We took some catfish to Jeff and Lori’s. I added the place to Yelp. Lori said there’s a Mennonite bakery in Livingston with good donuts, but it’s only opened during the week. I tried to talk John into staying.
We visited that donut shop Tato-nuts again Thursday before we left Gulfport. I made coffee when we got back, then turned around to find there was only a sugared cake donut left. I was pissed. (We buy a dozen donuts usually. Everyone gets one donut to themselves, then we cut up the rest for everyone to try.) So I ate half of the cake donut and wrapped up the rest. We brought coffee back from Starbucks Friday morning, and I opened the box to find the other half gone. I was superpissed. Those were really good donuts.
I don’t like this new development in the family dynamic. I realize I am now competing against the oldest for the good food. I need to be more careful, more thoughtful, or I’m going to lose out to him every time we get good donuts or pizza.
There were no coffee places near the Toomsuba KOA we just left. And that KOA was not the nicest one, even at $50/night. It had a cool tire swing that I would like to have at our campground. It was also across the street from a junkyard complete with loud attack dogs. I walked for a while to get some movement out of my body. I haven’t done anything physical lately.
I finally signed up for web hosting. I’ve been reading blog tips on other websites. I’m still not moving ahead very quickly due to technical issues. I am nearly clueless on how to get going. I can remember pieces of how a website works, but the vistaprint site I used was crazy easy. We’ll be at this campground for a few days, so I hope to make progress during this stay.
