5/28/2013 - Long Lunch Drive

First of all, yesterday afternoon one of the maintenance men put some sealer on my roof because of the leak we had over the kitchen sink once again.

It rained really hard again last night and NO LEAK.  Shane is my hero!

If you know Linda and I very well you will know this is somewhat normal for us.  If you don't know us very well you will think we are nuts.  We drove to Liberty, Missouri for lunch today (98 miles one way).  We ate at Pizza Ranch.  Whoopee!  All day Wednesday if old fart day (also know as senior day).  The lunch buffet was $7.50 each.

It is strange but we eat very little pizza there.  The pizza is good, but the broasted chicken and broasted potato wedges are excellent.  I won't say how much we ate, but we made pigs of ourselves.

As you know, it has been raining everyday and every night for about three or four days now.  The creeks and rivers are rising.  Here are a couple of pictures of a creek called "Big Creek".







Big Creek is an understatement.

Here is a piece of property for sale on Highway 65.


I wonder if they are going to sell it by the acre or by the gallon.

On our way back home Linda took these next two pictures from the road that goes to the refuge.  On the left side is Swan Lake and on the right side is a 20 foot ditch with a road on the other that side.  Both the ditch and road have been replaced by water from the Grand River.  The water is about six inches from the roadway in several spots.  If we get the rain that is forecast, there is a good possibility that we will be flooded in.  The water won't get to the physical building of the Visitor Center or the location where we are located.  We will just be stuck here.  They said if we need something they can boat it in or us out and back in.  If we wish we can leave until the threat is over but we won't do that. 






This is just another part of the exciting life of a workamper.

That is it for now.
