Crawling through Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois in the hot, overcast, humid, unbearable weather, we finally made it to Grain Valley Missouri, a bastion of the Philipsheck Clan, where the temperature hovered around 100 and the sun beat down like a heat lamp and it was as dry as the Sarah desert! Thank the Big Dog that our air conditioning is working well, because I was forced to stay in the Winnebago for the entire three days that the Boss and Mr. Big partied with Uncle Mike and were being treated like royalty. When I heard there was to be a family picnic I was really miffed that I would not be going, but I guess it was for the best because the heat precluded any outside activities and the picnic moved indoors where, with all the human feet, I could not have possibly scrounged for scraps under the kitchen table. BTW, the word “picnic” did not originate with crowds gathering to witness a lynching!

While in Missouri, we stayed overnight in a campground – Lazy Day in Danville – that both B&B agreed was the most attractive ever. Of course the Boss took pictures – check them out in the Photo Gallery!
