Day at home

Yesterday we were suppose to have went out to visit some our friends but Nancy wasn't feeling well .
So it was another ay of hanging around the house.  I messed around with the new over the air antenna trying the different locations to point to get different channels.  One thing I learned was you have to point it directly at the tv station or it will not pick them up.  Also it depends on the weather we're having at the time.
Today we woke up to a temperature of 53* but it will go up to around 78* before the day is over.
Nancy is going to get her hair cut today if she is feeling better we shall see.

Thanks for stoping by and have a great day.

Nice day out

Now that the college basketball season is under way I'm enjoying the games almost all week long.
Of course we have to do the laundry and since there are eight washers and ten dryers and it is within walking distance of our site I can walk to the laundry room.  I usually take a couple of loads a week and when Nancy feels like it she goes along for doing a load.  It has been much more easy doing here in the park than going to a Laundromat in town.
I think we are caught up with our doctor appointments for a few months and hopefully nothing will come up that we will have to go in the mean time.
Yesterday evening we got a chance to go out for supper and we went to Sioux City Steakhouse.  I've been wanting a good steak for a while and the one that I got was as near perfect as I've had from a restaurant in some time. It was a top sirloin medium well  with fries and slaw. Nancy had a steak kabob with baked beans and slaw, she said hers was good.
We then went to the new Home Shopping Network Outlet to see what sales they had. They had some returned items and some new things that were no longer for sale on the television at a reduced price and the older it was the more % off you get.
Nancy has been wanting some cherry pie so on the way back home I stopped at the Winn Dixie and got a pie which we had with a cup of coffee.
Finishing the pie and coffee then being on the computer for a while it was then time for a college basketball game for me which closed out a nice day for us.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Left overs and ball games

Nancy and I had our little dinner of Ham, green beans, sweet potatoes, deviled eggs, onion and a roll.
So yesterday and today it was eating left overs.
Along with the left overs Friday I watch college basket and today it was watching college football.
Nancy wasn't getting many channels with our house top antenna so I ordered  the Lava HD 2605 Antenna.  The reviews were good and the distance that was reported was one person said he received a station 202 miles from his house.
This morning I checked the station I was receiving from Hudson, Florida I got as far as Tallahassee and Savannah, Georgia.  Unbelievable isn't it?

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Happy Thanksgiving

I would like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. May you and yours have the health and strength that you need.
Nancy and I will not be going to the club house dinner today we will be having our little dinner here in the motorhome where we can relax and do our computing and watching the tv.
No sooner that I start getting healthy that Nancy had to go to the doctor yesterday.
She came down with the allergy of the something she had in the last of June where she woke up yesterday with her face beginning to swell up. It was not anywhere like the last time and the doctor gave her the same medicine as the other one gave her so she is better today.
We will not be going to any Black Friday sales as I tried it one and last time in my life.
The last time I went there was a lot of hit and run with the shopping carts.
I bought a piece of electronic equipment and then it was on sale for a couple of weeks at the same price.  So whats the use of loosing the good morning sleep.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Cold this morning

Saturday I took a new prescription to Walgreen to have filled it was a prescription for another pill to thin my blood.  My blood pressure went up when I was having my problem over the week end and has not gone down to where it is suppose to be.
Then it was to Winn Dixie to get a few groceries for our Thanksgiving Dinner.

After that it was time to settle in and watch my college football games.
We had a very cool night and upon getting up this morning the temperature was a cold 37*.
Now don't tell me how cold it was where you are this is Florida and it is not suppose to be that cold.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Hospital stay

Well what a few past days I've had.
Thursday morning when I went to the bathroom I knew I had to see a doctor so I went to the Walk in Clinic and when I saw the doctor what was going on he said that didn't look good.
He told me to go to the Bay Port Hospital that they had a room waiting for me and they knew of my problem.
A doctor  Joseph Staffetti MD a specialist in Gastroenterology came into my room that evening and had a talk with me and said I needed a colonoscopy to see what was going on.
So they had me scheduled for Friday at 2:00pm  at 15 after they said it will be 3:00as they were running late isn't the doctors always running late?  Well it was 4:15 when they came for me to wheel me to the operating room.  It was good news in the all they had to do was to cut out the  hemorrhoids and a couple of  Diverticulitis pockets.
They called me a taxi at 7:00pm they would not let me drive my own car.  The good part was when I was going to pay the taxi driver the $41.00 showing on the meter the driver said it would be the hospital that would be paying for it.  Well today it was my turn to pay the way back to get my car. I thought why not take the bus that would take me with one exchange right to the hospital.
So with my fare totaling $1.50 for the two buses and two hour of my time was ok with me. I would travel on a bus all day for $20.00 an hour.


Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Dupree Gardens

Nancy and I took a short drive out Friday to check out some free campgrounds that I has seen on a internet site.  On the way I noticed a roadside sign and I stopped to check it out.
It was a place where an old Florida attraction used to be in the early 1940's.  You can read about it from the photo I took.
This is all that remains of the gate house.
This says Dupree Lakes.
The lake looked small to have had glass bottom boats on it.  Perhaps the lake was filled in some what when they decided to build housing on the land.
Saturday started out good in that Nancy prepared country ham and biscuits with my eggs for breakfast. I mixed an orange mine sweet pepper for taste and the color to the eggs and also some diced onion, that with tomato made for a good tasting breakfast.
Of course later afternoon I watched a couple of college football games and boy were they a few upsets.
Yesterday I got the old grill out to grill us a couple of T-Bone steaks. I don't usually buy this type of steak but Winn Dixie had a two  day special price of $4.99 a pound with their card so with it being the same price as the ground beef I took the steak. The steaks were thick and 2.63 pounds for the two so it was good tasting and more that enough to satisfy us.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
