Did Someone Say ICE???

August 31, 2019


No vacation would be complete without mentioning DADDY’S OBSESSION WITH ICE! He makes it every day in our tiny AIRSTREAM freezer, but that isn’t enough to take care of our ICE NEEDS for the cooler that holds the cold drinks and other assorted items… so Daddy is CONSTANTLY either BUYING ice, or LOOKING for ice. Today we passed a neat little building whose sole purpose is to MAKE ICE. Daddy was soooo excited! And we were excited FOR HIM!!! We could all relax for a few days. We now had enough ice to get us through the last few days of our trip. WHEW! It’s funny the things that can cause a vacation to collapse. 😂😂😂😂

    Be safeMillie and family. Now it looks like Dorien is headed your way. Prayers for all in its path. Maybe you need to stay in the Airstream away from the water . Love and kisses. Be safe

      Thank you… we are headed home tomorrow to get the house ready for the storm and we will be ready to leave if we have to. It’s hard to tell what path the storm is going to take… we pray it will spare everyone and hook out to sea! 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

    I know that guy in the picture he’s the guy with the HAREM of the cutest girls and one stunning mommy.
    So an obsession with ice. Oh well it good be worse. Millie.
    I hope he makes creative drinks for mommy and you girls.
    Have a wonderful day !!!

    That’s a BIG bag of ice!!!! Is he hiring movers to get it into the Airstream? lol. Praying you all stay safe and the storm goes away and none are hurt. Thanks again for sharing your adventures with us.! Hugs and Love….

      That isn’t ice next to him… lolololol that is a concrete pole covered in ICE BAGS so people don’t hit them with their cars!!! I guess people get really excited pulling up to the building to BUY ALL THEIR ICE!!! 😂😂😂 But he did buy 20 pounds of it… and we only need ice for ONE DAY! We are leaving in the morning… SHEESH!

    Well Daddy needs to stock up on ice because there is going to be an ICE SHORTAGE when you get closer home for everyone preparing for the storm! who knows where this crazy storm is going to go! I’m thinking it may hit Pennsylvania next I’m thinking I should get my storm kit ready just in case! LOL I never saw such uncertain predictions! smh My friends cancelled their trip planned for a cruise leaving from Florida they had planned for 9 months…. and they just left to go to Cancun instead. It’s really crazy!

    Love the ice story. When my family trailered, it was always a big deal to find block ice for our tiny icebox in our trailer. We didn’t have a modern one.
    Stay safe with Dorian. I thought of you when I heard it might be headed for the Carolinas.

    I’m keeping you all in my prayers that your area is spared from Dorian. Praying for all affected. I’m glad Daddy got some ice. I remember from other trips you’ve shared he does like plenty of ice. I really can’t blame him. It’s a lot easier for me to drink Water or tea with plenty of ice.

Safe J ournies in the morning…..think maybe this hurry-cane is trying to tell you you need to vacation earlier?? Seems like last time you had to hide out in Tennesse a few days because mother nature was mad at your house!!! Just stay safe….love you guys and kiss kiss!!!!

    Millie hope that you and your family escaped the storm without to much ado. We had a doggie many years ago that thought you could not drink water without ice in it. We put some in a bucket of water when we were outside playing ball and had a good laugh at him “chasing” the ice around in the bucket trying to get it out so he could go crunch crunch crunch. We are waiting the tales of your next trip. Stay safe.
