Missouri to Maryland

White Hall, MD

We left Missouri on Sunday and flew into Baltimore/Washington International.     We left our rig and cat in the capable hands of Donna and Sam.   But before we left for this short trip we spent some time with the Wiebels.   On Friday Sam made his famous pizza.

We were introduced to Riggs.

Looks like that is all the pictures for today.    Here in White Hall we are in rolling hills and a storm is coming through.  I wanted to upload more pictures but it is not working.  I am lucky to have any signal I suppose.  We do not have our signal booster with us.

On Saturday Donna made a great breakfast.   Later in the day we drove over to Sam's train club's clubhouse.  Then we drove to Old Town St. Charles, the first capital city of Missouri.  We would have loved to have walked around but the rain was coming down.

That evening Sam was not feeling well but Donna, Leonard and I had dinner at a Chinese Buffet.  Donna snuck behind our backs and paid the bill.   We will have no more of that!   

On Sunday we were thrilled to see our Granddaughters Charlotte and Abby.    They sure acted like they were just as happy.  On Monday we took the girls to New Jersey with us.   As our other daughter, Terri and her husband Steve, is buying our house, we decided this would be a good time to settle.  

The water test company had to come for a re-test.  They tested two weeks ago but we were high in nitrates.   We have a water system which is serviced once a year.  Seems when they were at the house in September to service the system, they did not plug in the nitrate filtering tanks.  This was discovered because they had to come to the house due to the failure of the test.  Of course, they asked why WE unplugged it.  Heck, we didn't even know there was a plug back there behind the tanks.  Of course, they will never admit it, causing  us to have to pay them for two visits plus the testing company twice.

Then the township came for their inspection.  All passed but the fire extinguisher was in the kitchen closet and needs to be always visible.   Then the homeowners insurance representative came to inspect.   Some limbs need to be removed that overhang the barn/stables.

Then it was back to Maryland.  Today it rained too day.  Let's see what tomorrow brings.

you sure have been busy hope all goes well with the closing.
I have trouble down loading pictures to my blog too. They did maintenance last week and really made a mess of things didn't they.

Glad to see you had a good time visiting with Sam and Donna. Sam's pizza sure looked good. Sounds like they are taking really good care of your cat too!

I'm glad you're enjoying your grand children. Inspectors find the darndest things. I had to get a new fire extinguisher because I couldn't find the receipt for the one I got six months previous. I also had to mount it near the door.
