It is 8:00pm as I sit here and write this. The band (Fire and Ice) has just finished their first set. They are getting a good response from everyone who has passed by me. We even have some dancers. Metro is just passing by with the train. He has started a new thing this weekend with getting the kids to do the ‘wave’. It looks so funny when they get it going, and even if they don’t quite get it going it still looks comical. The sunshine hasn’t wanted to show it’s face much during the day, but the evenings have been nice and sunny.
We have had quite a few people drop by to have a look around and book sites for during the next few weeks. There has been a steady stream of people coming in all day.
The mini golf tourney was postponed from Sat to Sun in hopes of sunny weather. The sun didn’t shine but at least it wasn’t raining. We had just over 15 people come out to play. Down in numbers from last year, but at least it was still doable. The kiddie train was hugely popular this weekend. We even had a backup driver come in to give Metro a break.
Fast forward to Monday morning. It is now 7:30 am and all is quiet. There have been a few people pass by for a bathroom break, but not too many people are stirring yet. The sun seems to be trying to peak out, but I don’t know if it will make it or not.
Our ‘Iowa’ boys are back for another year. They are a group of college kids that have come to stay with us for the past two years. At first glance they tend to look a little rough around the edges and we wondered what we were in for. But, then we got to know them and and they are the best group of guys that you could meet. They have even made friends with and keep in touch with some of the guys from around here.
Overall it has been a fairly quiet weekend. Saturday night we did have an incident with one camper who was extremely mouthy and ignorant. He was asked to leave and the whole group decided to pack up and go in the morning. We also have a small thief in our midst. We have been told that when we are not looking someone is taking suckers and little chocolates off the counter. I have suspicion who it is, but have not caught him yet. Some one else also took off with the cue ball from the pool table. Not quite sure if this was just for fun or what the reason behind taking it is, but it is certainly frustrating.
