Errands and Fun Visiting with Friends.

Our Location today is Moore Haven, Florida.

Being as tired as I was last night, I figured I’d sleep for sure just like Monday night, right? I didn’t take the chance and took a Tylenol to be certain that I’d sleep. I only woke for a few minutes around 4:00 and turned over to wake up refreshed around 8:00. I needed that! 

Kathy wanted English Muffins for breakfast which was quite the change and the Weather Channel showed that we were to expect another warm sunny Florida day. By 9:30 armed with our shopping list we were on our way to Clewiston to see if we could return and replace the wireless printer we had bought the other day.  The only thing wrong with it was that it would not fit in the spot it would have to travel in the trailer when we are on the road.

A half hour later we were pulling into the parking lot of the Walmart in Clewiston. We started by looking for the things we had never searched for before and got lucky on a few. Now it was time to start reading the fine print on all the printer boxes to see which one would fit in the travelling spot under our bed until we found the perfect unit. When we had looked the other day we didn’t have that dimension with us because it was a spur of the moment decision. We also picked up groceries for a dinner get together we planned. 

Our next stop was Ace Hardware with no luck followed by a stop at True Value Hardware where I managed to get the Plastic Electrical Junction Box that will be mounted on the roof of the trailer to house our Solar connection block. Kathy just wasn’t having the same luck. We stopped at TSC and all the dollar stores in the area with no luck before stopping at McDonald’s for lunch.

Back at the trailer after unloading the truck the first thing I did was to make certain the printer would fit in its travel spot. The next thing I did was to try to get it working. I even reloaded the operating program three more times to make it work with no luck. I won’t tell you what I was thinking of doing with this new wireless printer. 

Kathy had been busy cooking while I had been working on the printer so by that time we both needed a rest. We sat outside in the cool shade enjoying watching nature and life that was passing by all around us. We then got things readied outside for the guests we were expecting for supper.

At 5:00 Elaine and Rick arrived bringing dessert of Chocolate Pie. I fired up the Weber Q and after taking orders of cooking preference started grilling some nice Sirloin steaks. Kathy had precooked some baked potatoes with onion and wrapped them in foil. After the steaks were on for a while I added the potatoes on the grill to reheat them and it all came out perfect. Everything was going so well I forgot to take pictures of the food. We had a chance to visit more after dinner until they needed to go take care of Lilly and Tucker with a promise to return for the campfire. 

Everyone also had to change into long pants and jackets not because it was getting chilly but because we were being attacked by bugs. It didn’t take long to get the fire going and once Elaine and Rick got back we spent more time talking about past travels and things we’ve learned from experience. Before long the tranquility of the fire was starting to say it was time to call it a night with the hope of doing this again before we leave.

Tomorrow we have no plans so we’ll just see what busyness we can get ourselves into. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
