Breakfast And Stuff

The world will end on December 21st, 2012; therefore, we’ve got a lot of traveling to cram into a short period time.  “Whachu talkin’ ‘bout, Willis?”  The Mayan Calendar ends on December 21st, 2012 which marks the end of the world.  So, are you ready?  In any event, you need to remember to get ready to get yourself up at two o’clock in the morning and play with your clocks as tomorrow marks the first day of daylight savings time 2011.

Now, onto the mundane things.  Yesterday morning, after we managed to peel ourselves off the sheets, Randy and Terry journeyed over to our place so the four of us could make a run on the Foley Coffee Shop for an oil change (as in greasy spoon).  We all had the two egg breakfast with biscuits, sausage, and hash browns or grits.  I don’t really care for grits, I had one once and didn’t like it, so I had the hash browns. 

Breakfast is one of our favorite eat-out meals.  When we lived in Harbor Springs, Judy and I used to go out for breakfast every Saturday.  It adds a whole new dimension when you share breakfast with your neighbors and good friends.  Too bad there are no ears in Washington, D. C. as we managed to solve all the world’s most pressing problems over two cups of coffee.

Then we pointed our noses in the Walmart’s direction.  Randy and Terry had a few items to pick up and so did we.  Lately, every time we shop at Wally World we leave missing several items that they are either out of or no longer stocking on their shelves.  There were four things that we couldn’t get while in Florida so we figured we’d get them in Foley; not so.  We are still down by three, one of which could become a serious problem soon – Scott single ply toilet paper.  Magnolia leaves will not decompose in our holding tank so it is imperative that we find some within another roll and a half.

From Uncle Wally’s we turned north, passing back through Foley, making tracks for Camping World where Randy and Terry picked up some new short sheets.  Yep folks, most RVs have short mattresses so they require a special sheets (at least the fitted sheet).  While we were there, we kicked the tires on several new RVs.  None of them had a special feature that ours has, it’s paid for!!

After a pass through Silverhill to gawk at the tornado damage, we made our way home.  It was heart breaking to see the damage inflicted on that little community.  And to think, it’s only about six miles, as the crow flies, from where we park our little home on wheels.  The good news is that no one was seriously hurt or killed.

After catching our breath, while relaxing and reading a little during the afternoon, we attended the Social Time which I ended up leading.  Last night we walked over and picked up Randy and Terry for a concert at the clubhouse given by Colonel Odell Smith.  He has a wonderful baritone voice and sings gospel music.  His selections were so good that we all agreed that we didn’t need to go to church on Sunday after hearing them (but we’ll go anyway).

Well, after returning home and staring at the television (wish “they” would find something decent to air on television) for a while, we re-pasted ourselves back onto the sheets thereby bringing an end to a rather eventful day.

Hope you have wonderful weekend.  Take Care Until Next Time - - - - -


  1. We won't have to change our clocks (again) on Sunday since AZ doesn't do the Daylight Savings Time thing. But I think we will lose 2 hours when we go back to Central Time in a couple of weeks.

    Ya'll have a great day.

  2. Scotts is good for RVs but so is Angel Soft. Our WalMart is hit n miss on items all the time too.
