Awake: 5:51am Temp 59 sleep 6+26 mostly sunny overnight @ Perry, GA.

This morning we each wore a splash of green in celebration of St. Patrick's Day... & it is so good to see the sunshine again.

I was (15) min late for my 8:00am seminar on "The Caterpillar Engine" & therefore was not present in time to get a nice manual; they passed out (200) of these manuals & then ran out. However, I made sure to pick up a complimentary DVD covering the same subject midway thru the seminar.
I forgot to mention that on Monday, early afternoon, we signed up with FMCA to have our motorhome weighed when leaving the fairgrounds on Friday morning.

Meanwhile, Kathy was attending the 8:00am seminar: "Make your RV Tax Deductible" which she didn't care for & so walked out & scrutinized the exhibits some more.

@ 9:30am I attended the seminar on "RV batteries," which I thoroughly enjoyed & learned a bit more on being kinder to our AGM batteries.

Kathy really enjoyed her 9:45am seminar on: Green cleaning the motorhome with Micro fiber.

The 11:30am "RV Electrical Circuits" seminar was equally as engrossing for me as the
instructor was well versed on electrical engineering.

Kathy's 11:30am seminar on: "Managing Digital Photos with Picasa" was the best of the day I believe. We do have our bundle of digital photos not well organized that's for sure.

Then K & I meet & walk to our motorhome for a quick lunch before spending a few hrs looking @ some of the (500) motorhomes on display for sale. The Newell Company had (2) of their coaches displayed: a pre-owned 2007 & a new 2010. Sam, our sales manager, was also there & we gabbed quite awhile about the RV industry & the economy.

Next, we walked over to the so called: Sheep Barn # 2 for 5:00pm Mass which is being celebrated each day by Fathers John & Al Gallant, brothers who are both retired but are active in a motorhome ministry, bringing the Catholic faith to rallies, conventions, etc. They are sponsored here by a group from FMCA known as the "Roamin' Catholic" chapter.

Dinner in the fairground restaurant called: "Concessions by Cox." Kathy has a chicken salad sandwich & I have an Italian sausage sandwich.

At 7:00 pm we attended: "Tony Kenny's Ireland" @ Reaves Arena with the other thousands of RV'ers. This Irish variety show featured singing, comedy, fiddling, & dancing & kept us entertained for a good (90) min.

Back in our coach, we finish watching: "Heaven Can Wait" with Warren Beatty, Julie Christie, Jack Warden, Dyan Cannon, Charles Grodin, James Mason, etc. Also know as: "Here Comes Mr. Jordan" with Beatty as good-natured football player who is taken to heaven ahead of schedule & has to return to "life" in another man's body. 1978. Of course this was a little far fetched but still....quite entertaining.

Generator run time: 6.1 hrs.

Lights out: 11:10pm
