Honey Boo Boo and the Super Bowl

RIP Chris Kyle

- 150 Confirmed Kills
-" Devil of Ramadi" to his enemies,
- $20,000.00 bounty on him

Judy and I worked most of Sat. getting the RV settled in storage at Scenic Mountain RV Park.  We keep it there when we are at home base because we don’t have room for it at the house. We had not had any contact with the park since last March, almost a year ago.   

We called the park Friday evening when we were about 50 miles out from the park.  That was just after our episode with the tire emergency. I was surprised when I got a recording informing me the calls were no longer accepted at the number. That did not sound good so I decided to just park the truck and fiver in the parking lot at the Kroger grocery store overnight. It is one of the stores with a large well lighted lot.  Judy and I returned to pick up the truck and fiver at 9:30 Sat. We took it to the RV Park and found out some sad news. The owners Terry and Sandy from Colorado were no longer the owners or on site. Glenn, a caretaker manager informed us that Terry had a fatal heart attack  last Sept. and Sandy had returned to Colorado. Glenn had been contacted by the bank to manage the park until  there is a new owner. I worked out the same deal for our RV storage that we had with the former owners, $45.00 per month.  Judy and I unhitched the fiver in the assigned spot and off-loaded various things. Judy did say she had way too many clothes on the RV.

Sunday we waited for the Super Bowl. We stayed inside mostly and took it easy while waiting. At 5:00 PM we went to the Pickle Barrel, a local sports bar to get something to eat before the game and to just get out of the house a bit.  Once we sat down Judy said “ isn’t that Honey Boo Boo?” Sure enough, there she was with her Mom and the rest of the clan. I guess they came to watch the game at the sports bar.  I told Judy I was not going to take a picture or ask for her autograph.Judy was relieved. I must admit I did do a FB status posting!  To my surprise the group was well behaved and did not do anything to draw attention to themselves. I did see some customers doing double takes though. Just when we Georgians had convinced most that “we aren’t as backwards as we use to be” along comes “Honey Boo Boo”. Hopefully, we will one day be able to overcome her.

We watched the first few plays and then went home to watch the rest of the game in the comfort of our recliners. I thought it was a good game, too bad about the long delay. 

That is all for now. Thanks for stopping by.
Next blog: Thurs.

  1. We really enjoyed the game. The park here had a party with lots of food, which made the delay that much easier to bear :)

  2. How sad that Chris Kyle survived his tours of duty and to end up the way he did. He was truly an American hero, for sure. pics of Honey Boo Boo? I didn't know she was from Georgia. I guess I've been out of the loop!

    1. Sad but true, and only about 15 miles from Milledgeville.

  3. we sure miss you two. Life here just isn't the same. We're still looking for another spot for next year. We've decided against the 159.

    That's quite a clan for "Honey Boo Boo".
