Not going to post any pics again tonight.  I took some today, but didn't get to resize them or get them ready to post.  We left the campground today and headed about 30 miles or so north east to a small town named Sulphur Springs.  It's a town of about 14,000 or so.  Probably about 1/2 the size of Lebanon.  It was grocery day, so we needed to hit up a Wal Mart.  I found some 20-50 weight oil that I normally use in the motorhome.  That stuff is hard to find.  Of all the Wal Mart stores we've been in since we left home, there have only been a couple that have had that weight oil.  They have the 10-40, but usually not 20-50, so I bought all they had, which was only 7 quarts.  After getting groceries, we went across the street to a Lowes.  In case you haven't noticed, many times when there is a Wal Mart, there is a Lowes either next door, or just across the street.  Just something we noticed during our travels.  We found a Dollar General store and a Family Dollar store and bought a couple of  $1 items in each.  We then took a leisurely drive back to the campground.  I drove around the grounds a little bit, looking for a spot that may have slightly better reception than the site we are in, and I might have found one.  There is a possibility that we may move just down the row a little bit tomorrow, to gain better reception for the cell phone and internet connection.  We'll see how we're feeling about that tomorrow.  Anyhow, after messing around with the cell phone tonight for a while, I finally figured out how to get it to work well to make a phone call.  The area we are in, is right between Verizon towers and another tower that Verizon customers can use, and the phone tries to switch back and forth between them, and calls get dropped, the signal strength drops to zero sometimes, etc.  Definately not the best cell reception area.  Anyhow, due to Josh needing the cell phone minutes for the business, unless there is an emergency, I am not answering the phone until after 9:00 p.m., central time, or  10:00 p.m. eastern time.  At that time, the minutes are off peak, and do not count against the normal monthly minutes.  All day Saturday and Sunday are free minutes also, not counting against our total monthly minutes.  So, either call late, or on weekends.  If you have an emergency, call Josh, and he can get ahold of me.  Well, anyhow, that is about it for tonight.  I'll try to get the pics posted for tomorrow night.  Later.
