Horse and carriage....

Friday was both busy and fun. We spent most of the day at the check-in lot, performing our Customer Service jobs. It's so interesting to meet the many RVer's who come to Escapade. Like the two sisters, from San Diego, California. They drive and handle their rig like pros and seem to have such fun traveling together, after they lost their husbands. I'm sure they are at least seven decades young and are an inspiration to observe!!

The day was again sunny and cool, about 74 degrees and we had jackets on until after 1 pm. It is arrid and refreshing!

The afternoon was spent inspecting the beautiful motorhomes that Guaranty RV has on display here. Eight or so of us ambled in and out, checking out all of the features and floorplans on the units. It was a most pleasant afternoon. About 4:00 they served us cake and drinks.....hmmmm...we can get used to this!!!

We got good news from my niece, Kristy yesterday. They found a bone marrow donor match for her and hope to be able to do the transplant before the end of the year. This is indeed good news, as neither of her sisters were matches. It was so good to hear the hopefulness in her voice today. So ya'll keep her in your prayers please.

Thursday evening on our walk around the complex, we came across this huge horse trailer, clearly marked as "Wells Fargo", and several horses were being unloaded into the paddocks here on the grounds. Conversing with the gentleman who was watering the horses, we found that he and his wife were contracted by Wells Fargo to drive and show the horses and coach in parades and other promotional events. They live in Montana, but load up the horses often and hit the road to promote Wells Fargo, much the same as the Clydesdale's represent Anheiser Busch.

He then took us to the rear of the trailer and showed us the carriage which they use with the horses in the parades.

It looks just like the Wells Fargo logo. There are five black horses which pull the carriage and they dress appropriately and drive the coach.

Another fun and interesting tidbit, encountered everyday in this beautiful country!!
Hugs to all of you!

I'm so happy they found a match for Kristy!!! It is a simple process, except for the Chemo before the Transplant. Many people survive this dreadful disease. May God be with her. We will keep her in our prayers.
