Hopefully by the time you are reading this we are through this epic period of time with confinement in our homes or motorhomes, as the case with many, hopefully with family safe and sound.  I pray this is all a memory, and we’ve all gotten to where we “want” to be.  As I write this I miss my family scattered around the country, although I don’t see my kids and grandkids often, we could always take off whenever and go to them.  Not this time, so our family has started “Zoom time” most evenings for happy hour!  Even this Grandma is learning new technology! We can talk all together, tell each other what exciting things went on during the day, how many trips we took to take the trash over, and since we are still in FL we take lots of golf cart rides and walks.  We are actually spending more family time together!

March 4th was our annual NE picnic here at River Bend.  We had a smaller group than last year, final count was around 46!  Some new faces, and some that came and stayed for a few days to enjoy our resort and each other.  Food was abundant, as always, followed by cake and desserts!  Chapters represented were NE, Great Lakes, Mac Pack, SE, and Happy Wanderers. I’ll get a date together for next year in the next few months, but always in March.

As you start your summer travels, please stay safe and keep your eyes open, you never know who you will run into.
