Our stay at the Modoc Campground left us with fond memories…and some hitchhikers:
Yep, those pesky little Sugar Ants.
We decided to make a fast run to Walmart and get some special treats for our guests.
So far, it seems to be working, the little guys are “enjoying” this treat.
On the Veterans Administration (VA) front, I had two appointments on Monday, one with the Ophthalmologist who is going to do my cataract surgery (to measure my eyes for the lens) and another with a Respiratory Therapist who did some lung function tests. I’m glad these two appointments were on the same day. Sometimes you win one.
But before I got a chance to celebrate, I had another appointment scheduled, I have to see the anesthesiologist a week before my cataract surgery, which now is scheduled for 28 May. Once the surgery is completed, I have to return the next day, then one week later and finally one month later. That puts us here at our South Carolina “home” at least through June. Barring any additional appointments that may pop up for my disability claim. There is still lots pending on that.
Again, we’re looking at some nearby week long trips. We are paying for our site here monthly at a good rate, but with pulling out to go to another campground, we’ll be double paying, so we’re trying to decide where we can get the most bang for our bucks.
We will be taking a week long car trip up to NJ and PA mid May to see the granddaughters (and their parents), that will be a nice change of pace, even though it also makes a ding on our budget. But you have to do what you have to do. And those little girls make the ding much easier to swallow.
Today Marti had to go to the Police Station. No, she didn’t do anything wrong, she had to get her fingerprints done for a volunteer position we are looking to get involved with in the future, the organization does construction, like Habitat for Humanity. The organization requires a background check, which includes fingerprints being sent to the FBI. Her last two fingerprint cards were rejected by the FBI as unreadable.
The police officer was very nice and we had a fun time, even if Marti had red ink on her fingers after it was done.
Marti is hoping the third time is a charm so she crossed her fingers.
Yesterday, on the way back from the VA hospital, we spotted this strange bird in downtown Columbia, SC. I’m at a loss as what kind of bird it is, so maybe those bird experts (Judy, Sherry, Nancy, Erin and Karen) can help me out.
I’m really unsure of what this bird is, but it’s kind of hard to miss, it’s about ten feet tall.
