This morning dawned cloudy and rainy. Well, along with the rain was chill! Tonight is the night it is supposed to get down to 25, brrrrrrrrrrrrr, shiver, shiver! That's OK, we'll just turn up the heat.

So this morning I went to the seminar on the importance of proper weight and tire safety. Although I already knew they both are important, now I can identify what may turn into problem areas. We are having our rig weighed on Friday morning prior to departing. This will tell us if we are over weight, which tire and the proper inflation pressure for our tires.

After the seminar, I walked around the RV dealership and looked in some motor homes. Now even though there are no RV exhibits, the campground we are in is owned by a dealership and they are providing rooms for our seminars, so it is only fitting to look in their products. Did not find anything which would make me jump up and down with excitement, not that I expect too in our price range and besides, we're not looking to get a new one. It doesn't cost anything to look around.

After lunch we drove over to Charlotte to visit Billy Graham's Library. It is quiet an impressive place even though the word "Library" is kind of misleading. The sitting is beautiful and peaceful. It is in a wooded area and contains his childhood home (although it has been moved to this spot), a memory garden where his wife is buried and where he will be buried, the "library" which is the shape of a barn and a meditation walk. The visit is a guided tour of sorts. There are different rooms with videos or audios playing with regards to his ministry and his family. It is an inspiring place, but for some, it may seem like it's pushing religion, but then again, a non religious person probably wouldn't visit unless they were looking for guidance and they could get it there. The whole place does speak to ones heart. It is definitely a place to visit if in the area.

Entertainment tonight was a local band, The Chris Matthews Band. They are a country rock band, so you know how thrilled Bob & I were. But they were pretty good when you could understand what they were singing. Since the temperature was rapidly descending, many people left and we moved up closer to the stage where we were hoping it might be warmer, well it sort of worked. Anyway we did stay for the entire concert but then made a rapid escape to the semi warmth of "G/G".

I have the computer at the front where the computer desk is located and the temp here is 57, I have a blanket over my lap and I can still feel cold area coming in. One day I will figure out from where it is coming and fix it! But for now, will just have to use a blanket.

Tomorrow more seminars and socializing.
