CE & Jackie Miller has volunteered to do Rally T-shirts. We need to know by July 1 how many would want to order shirts and sizes. There will be womens & mens sizes ,they will have the Heartland Logo with Illinois Chapter incorporated in the bottom of logo. We think the price will be around $ 15 depending on the number of shirts ordered. You can post on this thread or contact katkens or cemill (CE) with your info.......thanks Kenny

Woo Hoo!!
Got the time off of work so we will be seeing y'all at the Rally. Course we have to call and make our reservations first. And I do believe we would be interested in T-shirts too.
We are looking forward to seeing everyone again and are very excited about going to our first National Rally.

I just want to let folks know that all the folks coming in from the south on I-55 needs to use exit 88 to get to the campground. The road is closed on the exit 83 end and looks like for quite awhile some major construction going on , new overpass etc........Ken

Sure wish we could make this one, I would love to see everyone again!

How's the knee, Kathy? I'm doing great, going to switch from the walker to the cane soon. I will probably go back to work mid-August.

Ken and Kathy, you guys will be missed.

katkens-DW
07-25-2011, 07:52 AM
We will miss you guys too.. The knee is coming along still painful but I did get in and out of the trailer and yesterday I went up and down the basement stairs so that is good I have been on a cane now for about a week. Start therapy Tuesday so I am sure that will hurt!!

kkamshop
07-25-2011, 09:32 AM
Good luck with the PT Kathy! I'm not supposed to do stairs for a couple more weeks, but I think I could now. Our laundry is in the basement so Ken gets to do the laundry every weekend ;)

He makes a great housewife!!

Hi Neil and Sharon! Have a great rally!

We ordered the tshirts even though we can't come. I think Jackie is mailing them to us.

Kathy, in Goshen Ken and your grandson came to call for me, but I couldn't go out to play. Now I am bummed that he will not be in Chatham with his RC car.
Tell him I know I can break it if he just gives me one more chance.
Take care of your new hip.

Kenny and Kathy, Thank you so much for a wonderful rally!!! We enjoyed Dallas being with you too. I know Bill appreciated all the help he received from everyone. I can report he has used his new grill three days in a row!!! Knock on wood...the frig is still cool!!! We have been here since Monday and no new problems!!! I loved all the neat food ideas and taking a lot of them camping over Labor Day!!! I can't say enough about everyone that attended the rally. We love all of you and hope everyone has safe journeys to come. Kathy, I will have to help Bill find this site but he said he has accepted the request!!!

Bill, I saw the pics of your driveway. And your BC was in it. If you can get it backed in there you can back it in anywhere.
Sorry we never got around to installing your light.

08-16-2011, 10:48 AM
I'm doing real well with the new hip. I go to the therapist Friday for a final signoff. I still use the cane because it starts to hurt if I go without it, but I started back to work this week - four hours at a time.

They are eager for me to come back to work because one of our full time ladies is quitting Friday and another full timer just fell and will be off 8 weeks!!

Now how are you doing?

katkens-DW
08-16-2011, 01:20 PM
I am doing OK I really hurt it at the rally going up and down the stairs of the trailer but the rally was fun. My Pt told me it set me back a bit but it will get better. I think knees take longer at least for me it does. I am glad you are doing so well next year we will have a banner to hold up as we walk around the camp ground Yea we can walk again..LOL!!!
