Shirley and Roger were camping in San Diego a few years ago with their RV club. It was Halloween eve and they wanted to get a pumpkin to carve and set out by their RV. We went to the grocery store and found one of the last pumpkins. It was so great seeing the two of them enjoying the simple pleasures of life on the road!
