Happy Memorial Day

We enjoyed our stay at Hollywood Casino.  The sites have full hookups plus cable.  They are reasonably priced and you can walk to the casino.  What more could you ask for?  
One of the best places close by to eat is the Blue and White Restaurant.  It was featured on Diners Drive-ins and Dives.  They have the BEST fried chicken around.  I also love their fried dill pickles.  Yumm If you are ever in the area you have to go there.
It use to be a service station years ago, they just added on to the building. They really do have great food.  They also make home made rolls and donuts. Everything is cooked to order.

It's a 2 1/2 hour drive home.  The weather was great and the traffic light.  I guess most people were home grilling. It was a great trip, just too short. The worst part of any trip is unloading. UGHHH!  Especially when it is so hot and humid.  I did most of the wash last night in the motor home.  That really helps a lot.  I have read some of the forums on the Good Sam site and I am really surprised at the number of people that don't want a washer/dryer in their RV.  I love mine! I keep the wash caught up while we are on our trip so that I don't have this pile to face when we get home.  I understand if you dry camp why you wouldn't want one, but if you don't dry camp, why wouldn't you want one?  Most of the places we stay at have full hook ups so the tanks aren't a problem.  I just wash on the evenings we are home. The only thing I have to wash now is the bedding. TaDa!  My simple mind is so easily pleased. 
I hope everyone has had a good Memorial Day.  
Please take the time to remember our soldiers that are fighting for our freedom.  I am thankful for all of those that chose to serve our country so that I can enjoy freedom.  To the families who have lost loved ones, and those that areo  home having to carry on alone, I am so sorry for your loss. I do appreciate the sacrifices made for our freedom.  We should never take freedom for granted, it is not free.
