We’re “Always Flexible” in taking on different jobs here at the COE. You can’t say we get bored doing the same thing over and over again. That’s one of the things we enjoy with our workamping job, always something different, always a new challenge, sometimes a minor task, sometimes a major evolution.
Doing the in depth inspections of the 25 areas operated by the COE, we’ve traveled all around Thurmond Lake. It takes a lot of time checking everything from beach sand, to restrooms, lighting, road conditions, even gates (that are used to close off areas in the off season) to ensure they are in good condition. The other day I had an inspector watching me inspect the gate, to ensure I was doing it correctly.
We got pulled off the inspections to complete a job that has been on the priority list. The recreation building at the COE Volunteer Village campground needed a paint job and we’ve been waiting for good weather to complete it. With the weather conditions we needed, we jumped on it and got it done with the help of a couple of other volunteers. The work went fast and the company helping made it a lot of fun.
Being here in South Carolina keeps up pretty close to seeing our grandsons, but our granddaughters live in Missouri and New Jersey. This weekend we’re flying up to NJ for a long weekend to see our granddaughters Anabelle and Elizabeth and to attend a family get together for my dad’s 93rd birthday. We can’t always get to see the other granddaughters in MO as often as we’d like, but we still see them with the use of computers and Facetime. It’s a good substitute until we can get there next spring, but it doesn’t keep us from having fun and playing with the girls.
Tomorrow we have a couple of boxes of Christmas presents for our MO girls to get mailed. Even though we’re miles away, we always find a way to stay in touch, be a part of their lives and see them grow up.
