21 June ’04, Sun/Monday. ( I thought I would follow Louise’s open email with my version)….As we climbed out of bed we knew right then we were going to have a full day just staying right here at the van for the day. We just had too much to get done. It had been well over 2 months since we had put up our “extra room” and today it was to go up. Not only that, we had laundry to do. As soon as I started with the room, Louise had the clock going to see just how long it was going to take me. Now really, this is only the 2nd time I’ve had to put it up and she’s got the clock running…. Anyway, it took me a little more than I had expected…2 + hours. As far a the laundry, after she went to get water she dugout the “plumber’s friend”…the plumber’s friend and a bucket of water and she has her own Maytag with me being the wringer and official hanger upper. Boy it never fails, no longer had the wash been hung out than the sky turned very dark and darned if it didn’t start to rain…..rain, it rained like h___. Lucky enough, I had the room up so we strung a line inside and got it all dry by night. I don’t know when it stopped raining, but when I woke this morning (Monday) it had stopped and the sun was out with total blue sky. All Forgiven. Oh I forgot, yesterday morning we went to the bar/restaurant here at the campgrounds for breakfast. This is a first for us to have a meal at the restaurants at the campgrounds. As it turned out it was really quite good and very inexpensive. Ham, 2 egg, cheese, mushroom omelet with fresh rolls and a cappuccino was $3.00. I can afford that. Ok, back to today. I've had a chance to use the internet here at the campground but it was on their computer and their service is rather slow. It was good to receive email but, I want to up-load pictures and text so today we went into Prague to find a service there.
We did and it is a good one. I got all the text caught up and tomorrow I hope to get a lot of picture gallery caught up as well. Louise did some shopping while in town and found a good value on shoes and 2 umbrella’s for a $1.00 ea. I found a good value on my coffee break…. We did walk a lot today but, we want to save all the real tourist stuff for when Mikleane and family get here. I would imagine we will be getting together on Wednesday. As we were walking back to the tram we came across a neat little place to have a beer right on the river bank. We enjoyed the people in the paddle and row boats below us. There were those that just wanted to float down the river and then there were those that just had to have a water fight with their oars. Looked like fun. We finally had a nice sun break today and it might have gone to someone’s head. Tomorrow….more of today. By the way, HAPPY FATHERS DAY !!! Oh Yes, we've had questions about our kitchen... well here it is complete with the kitchen boss.
