Recovery? Almost!

It only took two days for our bodies to begin to feel good again.  What can we say?  We are out of shape and this physical work is kicking our asses.  Judy has a big toe that has turned purple under the toenail, she has pain shooting up and down her left leg, and the little toe and the side of her right foot have gone numb.  Darrell has lots of pain in both his knees and in his left shoulder as well as a sharp pain at the base of his neck all of which makes it hard to fall asleep at night.  Yep, this job maybe suited for teenagers, but it’s certainly rough on us keenagers.  It will either kill us or cure us – here’s hoping for the latter.

Anywhoo, we hit Wally World yesterday morning to augment our grocery supply, got a Christmas package ready for shipping to our son in Michigan, took a short nap, and read a little.  While at Uncle Wally’s we picked up an inexpensive speaker system with a subwoofer for my computer so we could have decent sounds while listening to Pandora Radio.  We’re “streaming” on TengoInternet while here at Green River Lake State Park, but it will only use 15MBs per hour to listen when using our Verizon modem.  Even if we have to pay an additional $10 per month, it’s nice to be able to listen to our favorites on commercial free radio – we like 60’s or lite 70’s music streams.

Last evening we joined Thurman and Phyllis for a real fine meal.  Phyllis loves to cook and we love to eat, so it makes a rather nice arrangement.  After dinner the four of us took a jaunt into beautiful downtown Campbellsville to see the Christmas light display in one of the city parks.  They were real purdy, but sn*w is needed to make it feel like Christmas seasons of days gone by.  We just may get some before we pull up anchor and haul assets; the temperatures are already dropping into the high twenties during the nights.

We took a bunch of pictures of the lights to share with you, but wouldn’t you know it?  After returning to Thurman and Phyllis’ for dessert, I left the camera at their house.  So I’ll just have to retrieve it later today and post the pictures tomorrow along with today’s outing.  Today the four of us are heading to Hodgenville, Kentucky to visit the Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Park.  Hopefully we’ll have something interesting to share with you tomorrow.

Take Care Until Next Time  - - - - - - - -

  1. In about eight months that toe nail will come off! In the mean time, it looks like different shoes with larger toe box might be called for.
