While they were doing that Nancy and I went down to WalMart to do a little shopping for a few things.
This is were I park beside the driveway when visiting here.
Nick and I put some new bolt in the outside mirror to tighten it up. It has been shaking up and down when going down the highway. Always something to do on the motorhome.

I had to go to WalMart to pick up my medicine that I forgot to get yesterday.
We got started around 11:00,which wasn't to bad. We are never in a hurry.
We got up to Tifton around lunch time so we had a breakfast for lunch at the Cracker Barrel.
Eggs,grits hash brown casserole,country ham,biscuiits butter jelly and coffee. We always do this and know we shouldn't.
We got to my brother Nick in Warner Robins,Ga. at 4:oo. We will have a good visit with him and his wife Joan before goin on up the road.
This traveling the roads and visiting is what I like best.

We had a family get together and enjoyed a great meal and time together. Nancy and myself are enjoying to many of these meals. We are gaining weight and not walking as we should be.
Tomorrow we will be leaving and going to our next stop for a while. We will be visiting my brother Nick and his wife Joan. It is really nice that we can travel at our own pace to visit and still be in our own home.

The smoke is still laying heavy on the highways here in Georgia. It has to be bad for the health of the people here breathing the smoke all the time. Most of the time the visability is down less then 1 mile.
We like to sleep with the window open at the head of the bed at night but we can't because of the smell of smoke.

Talked to Jeremy he thought he would be coming home today but they are going to discarge him tomorrow. He has to give himself shots in the stomach for a week. He says he has to do that to keep from getting blood clots.
Sherry took the kids and Nancy up to the hospital to see him yesterday evening. They sure do miss their dad.
So we still have not made any plans on when we are leaving here. I imagine it won't be to much longer. We will stay as long as necessary. One thing about being retired and being a fulltimer is that you don't have a schedule.

Mean time Nancy has had the great grand kids and they are being very good. She let them go in their small pool for a while and they enjoyed that. They are getting used to the water and not being afraid of it. Tiffany is up at the hospital in Tifton with Jeremy so I don't know how long we will have they children. Sherry also is up there. I guess she may come home tomorrow.
I did get to go to WalMart and had the oil changed in the car,so now I won't have to think about that for a while.

There is a large pecan company located in the town. Georgia has a lot of pecan trees and peach trees located around the state.

We did meet with Mark and Sherry and had dinner at the Farm House Restaurant in Lake Park. The food was ok but nothing to talk about. We did have a good time as usual with Mark and Sherry.

The price of gas sure has gone up since we arrived here last week. It has gone up 16 cents a gallon. I thought for sure that it wasn't going to be so high this year. Well they can think up all the reasons for raising it. The bottom line is that it will be as high as they want it to be.
We are going to be here a little longer then first planned. Jeremy has his back operation Monday so we will hang around a while.

I just love hot dogs.I don't think I will ever get tired of eating them. They taste so much better when grilled outside.

I got a chance to change my oil and filter yesterday. Of course I had some help from Andy(gret grandson). Also changed the oil and filter in the generator. Glad to get that finished and won't have to worry about it for a while.

After driving 28 miles out to interstate 75 I stopped and filled up the propane. It was a good price. In new Port richey they wanted 3.49 a gallon.

Yesterday was hot with a rain storm in the area but not on us. We had a few sprinkles.
We will go to church today and then do a few last minute things in and around the motorhome. We will also get in some walking. We have to keep up the walking.

We also got to the flea market to get some batteries and a few other things. We then did our walking in the mall.
This morning I have washed the car and the motorhome and it is only 10:30am. That is good for me and I'm sure glad I'm getting the strenght back that I had lost.
We will be working around the motorhome and getting things put up and cleaned in order to take off monday. I like to do a little at a time so I won't be rushed the last minute.

Today we are up a little early getting ready to go to the doctor to see what he has to say about the blood work that we had last week. After the doctor we are going to the flea market,I need to get some of the small cell type batteries. We will look around and see some more things before we leave the flea market. That is as far as what we have planned for the day.
Then it is just another let it happen day.

After our morning walk we again went down to the pool to cool off. The water sure did feel good after being out in the hot sun for a while. The pool looks empty here in this pic,but later on there were 8 or so people that came in to enjoy the pool.

It was even to hot for that so,we only stayed a couple of hours. We came home ate a little then went down to WalMart for a few things. From there we went to Harbor Freight where I bought a IF thermometer.
From Harbor Freight we took our evening walk down on the river side at New Port Richey. There was a little breeze every now and then so it wasn't to bad.
Well today I take back the thermometer that I bought. For some reason I couldn't get it to work. After that I've got to get me a hair cut. Time is growing short so we've got a few things to do around the motorhome in order to take off monday. Even though you clean everyday there's some things that need clean before hitting the road. Everything is always in the motorhome but you have to place them in a certain place for the journey on the road. The chairs,loungers and table needs to be put away in the outer bays.

Dad died at 11:00 that night. The other memory was pleasent. That was in the year 2000,the year I retired and started on a fulltime rv journey that gets better and better.
Nancy and I went out walking at the mall yesterday. After looking in the different stores we stopped into the Golden Corral for my birthday dinner. WOW I pigged out again. I had a piece of steak and then another piece of steak and some more food. I topped it off with a slice of carrot cake and ice cream.
Today all that we have planned thus far is to do some walking and going down to the pool for a couple of hours. Another hot 85* day today.
