We have been in Oklahoma for the last a week. We are here to celebrate my brother in-law's 50th birthday. It's hot, humit and plenty of bugs that bite you. And it looks like a mosqitoes bite and itch terrible don't come here at this time of the year. Enough of that business we have had a great time here with friends, family and the people to live around them as well. The food was over flowing salads, smoked brisket, chicken, hot links and a 1st for me smoked bacon which was awesome. Corn on the cob smoked all so good. and for the grand finally birthday cake yummy. Brother in-law was definitely surprised. The best part is his son set the party up for his father of course my sister in-law Marty did the prep well done Marty. And now to add excitement to the evening the tornado alarm went off at 2:00 am. So everyone get up now we have to get to shelter so here we go in the wind and rain to shelter for about half hour. Everything turn out ok for us to go back in and we all slept in that morning.  We have had such a great time I can't tell you. We will be back on the road soon here are a few pictures of our stay.

Lost in Minnesota

We left 8:00 am and drove to Albert Lea, MN but quickly changed our mind on staying there cause it was to far from freeway so ended up at Austin KOA which was right off the 90 interstate. First thing we met this couple which I don't remember there names were staying at the park. They have alot of illness going on her mother and her husband both terminal. They chatted a while, fun people gave us a run down on good places to eat and some history of Austin minnesota . Staying at this park was a get away for them. They recomended Trails which is a truck stop and it has also a great gift shop really nice and great food. After lunch we came back and played Rummikub when and another couple came by Doug and Cindy  they intruduced their self they seen our licence plates from Arizona. Turns out their from Springerville, Az. This is their first year out they invited to stop by their home anytime. Nice evening.
Today we were on the road at 7:00 am went for about 3 hours and stopped at Elk's set up and went for lunch and had checked out this place called Georges Chile that we seen on TV's  Diner,Drive-Ins and Dives. We will be back worth the stop. Fueled up and went back Elks Lodge where Harry grilled a couple of steaks for dinner and a put a salad together and we were great for dinner, More tomorrow.

Corn Palace

Up and at it this morning we left the park at 8:00 am and were on the road to Mitchell, SD to stay at R/ R campground. Our 1st stop Wall Drug and it's worth the stop very intresting and worth the time. Our weather is warming up we seem to stay in the 80's and 90's which is really nice for a change. The 3 of us miss our traveling partners Boo is moping around and saying were's Bill and Jan. The R/R park is very nice we are parked next to the pool.  Next up we stopped and checked out the Corn palace yes its corny but fun to check out. Later we went out for dinner to Culver's a place we both like. When we got back I sat down and did a blog  as I went hit save it was lost before I made it. I am proud to say I decided to go back and redo the blog I hate to have go back and redo
