Back home

When we got to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee we got a room for four for Nancy and I also Joe, our   daughter Sherry that also came to be with Joe our son.
I think it helped Joe a lot that we came to help him at this time.
Joe is going back home with Sherry for a week or so and I'm sure Sherry and Mark her husband will continue to ease the pain of Joe losing his wife.
Yesterday Nancy and I made the trip back home although we were worn out from the trip it was good to get back to sleep in our own bed.  It will take Nancy some extra time to get over the trip of all those miles in the car.
Nick and I are going to install the new patio awning that I had ordered and delivered here to his house.  So wish us two old men luck on doing this project for the day.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Sad News

Friday we went to Milledgeville to do the laundry.
Then it was to Judy's Country Kitchen for the senior buffet and it was good as usual.
From there it was to Autozone for some new brake pads.  I notice coming into town that when I applied the brake I hear them making the noise that tells you that you need to change the pads.
After getting back home and carrying the clothes inside I told Nancy I was going to change the brake pads.
Saturday our san Joe called us to tell us that his wife had died. Nancy and I known that she was sick and when we saw them a month or so the she didn't look well at all.  We told Joe that we were very sorry to hear the news about her and we would be up to see him. 
Today we traveled the 70 or so miles south to Warner Robins where my brother lives.
We are leaving the motorhome in his yard and going in the morning to be with Joe for a few days.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Busy Day

Yesterday morning when we got up it was 59* it was cool but at that temperature it made for good sleeping for the night with the window open over our head.
I got out of bed first as usual and had my second cup of coffee while checking my email and a few blogs.  By that time Nancy was ready to start her day by getting up.
We had our breakfast then begin to start our day.
It got hot quick for the day with the temperature getting up to 90* but I wanted to change the oil in the car which I did while taking a couple of rest periods drinking some water. 
Later we decided to got into Eatonton so we could get a few groceries but first we had better eat since neither of us had lunch.
I drove through town and we thought we would try Tastee Chick Restaurant.  Upon entering the restaurant it looked like the place had started as a drive in and through the years had become a walk in restaurant.  This is one you place your order at the counter then find where you wanted to set down and they bring the food to you.  Nancy and I both had the chicken tenders with fries, cole slaw and Texas toast which was good.
After that it was to Walmart to do our shopping that took a couple of hours. 
Getting home and putting the groceries away we then had some cookies and coffee sitting for a while to settled down we both took a nape.
Later on we turned the television on to watch the presidential debate.  With the end of that came the end of our day.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Yesterday started out the same as each morning with drinking our first cup of coffee in bed and loosely making the plans for the day.
Then I was out of the bed getting on the computer checking my email then on to the blogs to see what everyone was up to yesterday.
By the time I was through with doing my stuff Nancy was up getting our breakfast ready.
It was after all of that when things were different for me. I got on the roof of the motorhome a good scrubbing then getting back off to go around the motorhome with the water hose to rinse off the sides so the run off from the roof would not leave streaks.
After a late lunch and resting some what I was looking at the large front slide to make sure all was good.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Still here

We haven't been doing anything much, of course we went into Milledgeville to pick up our prescriptions and to eat at Judy's buffet again.  Then a couple of things from Walmart.
Yesterday after doing my daily chores I kind of settled in to watch a few college football games.
Later in the evening we heard a knock on the door I opened the door and there was a young lady that asked if we had anything to eat that her and her husband had not eat all day.
Talking to her they was living in an old camper on one of the sites here and they switch from this campground to a free campground that is close by.  They had run out of their food stamps and needed some food.  Nancy looked and gathered up some can items, bread, lunch meat and cheese for them.
When people asked for money I usually don't give them money but when they ask for food I can't turn them down.
Again we have to go to Walgreen to pick up another a prescription for me other than that we have no plans.
A few of the campers here at the five electric sites they have.
Yes its looking like fall is here with the thick layer of leaves on the campground.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

New curtains

Tuesday was a full day since we had to go to Milledgeville to the Laundromat to do the washing and drying of the clothes. 
It was around 4:00 or so by the time we were finished with the close so it was a stop at the Little Caesar's Pizza.  We were both hungry since we didn't have lunch so Nancy said to buy an order of Crazy Bread to eat on the way home.
So I did and we did eat the Crazy Bread which tasted extra good.
Yesterday I spread the cheap plastic table cloth out on the picnic table to begin the work on the front  window curtains of the motorhome.  The ones we have are several years old and are faded from the sun shining on them.
I could order these curtains but in order to save a little money and being a DIY guy I make my own.
The curtains I use are from Walmart they are the heavy room darkening and checking them out at night time you can't even see the light on in the night time from the outside.
I get the 63"L x 42"W and turn them side ways. It takes four of them at $9.98 each. 
I buy the grommet kits from Harbor Freight to install along the side which becomes the top of the curtain. 
This works for me and your taste may be different.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Hurricane Matthew People

We made our move south a little more Monday.
It was to Lake Sinclair Campground we did get one of the five electric spots but not one of the good ones.  The one site that was open was a tent site on the other side of the road with just a little bit of room. I didn't even consider this site upon arrival, I drove on down to the two sections without electric to see if I could get one that would do for our motorhome.
After looking I then went back to the one electric site to check it closer. I told Nancy that it looked like it might be possible to get the motorhome in it with some extra maneuvering.
Then yesterday one of the other more suitable sites came open so we moved over and took it.
Yes that one was much better.
 We have been coming here for many years and parking our 34' motorhome and when you check the campround out on the government site information it says 22' limit.  But that's the way it reads and when I want to stay in a campground I go see for my self.  There are many camping spots that have the sites suitable for foldup campers or tent that will hold a larger camping unit.
This is the beach area of Sinclair Lake and on the opposite side of the road is the picnic area.
There are more people here than usual.  I have talked to a couple of them and they are from the Myrtle Beach area and came here when they had to evacuate from the when hurricane Matthew blew in.
We went to Milledgeville yesterday to get our prescriptions filled at the Walgreen Pharmacy.
From there it was to Advance Auto to get some rubber seal strips then it was one of our favorite places to eat that would be Judy's for their buffet. The restaurant doesn't have a large buffet but they do have five different meats, six or seven vegetables a salad bar with the main type of things, home made cakes and pies.  
Now the kicker is l@@k close now the senior price with tax is(drum roll please) $6.00 can you believe that.
After eating more than we should it was off to Walmart and Dollar Tree.
After getting back home putting the groceries in their place we settled down with a cup of coffee and a little computer time.  It was a busy day for us.

Thank you for stopping by and have a great day.
