Thanksgiving….and winter camping…in Ohio?



Yes, it's true. We've found a heated indoor storage warehouse near our houses in which to park Nina and Annie for the winter!  There are 4 other RV campers here with us and we're installing a astroturf lawn, hot tub, and indoor fountains for ambiance. The gas grill is installed outside.


The property is the abandoned American Crayon Company headquarters at the corner of Rockwell and Hayes Avenue. This section is being torn down, but, there are huge modern warehouses on the property as well and that is where huge boats, campers, classic cars and more are parked in heated storage. I'm going to store my 1984 Mazda RX7 there and Paulie is going to to park her 1985 Porsche there, too!


Rushing the Christmas season a bit, we strung lights across our adjoining rigs this afternoon! Trees to be put up soon as well. What fun!

Kate, as you can see, is ready to head over there for some camping fun. (Her recent haircut was a bit on the short side, so she's wearing her polar fleece coat full time in our house for a few weeks).


 We're going to enjoy our Thanksgiving dinner with Bob, Paulette, her brother, Tim this evening. The pies are done, the turkey and stuffing are in the oven, and potatoes are underway. Bob is bringing the vegan versions of all of the above for the rest of us. The only common dish will be green beans!

Friends-They are kind to each other's hopes.
They cherish each others dreams.

To all of my friends and family-- have a wonderful Thanksgiving! I am thankful to have all of you in my life.
