With much sadness and a sniff or two, we left our nice campsite at Charleston AFB and headed to our “home”. 112 miles. Not a PDD day. Nope, not even close.
Even so, it was still nice to get back.
And I came back with a new addition to our Honda Element Toad.
I found one of the Coast Guard Retired stickers at the Sector Charleston Coast Guard Base exchange. I wanted one for a long time and finally was successful. A well spent three bucks.
That sticker represents a milestone for us. 1 September marks the day I retired two years ago. Already. Thanks to all you taxpayers out there that have pitched in to pay me to stay home. :c)
We’re looking down the road in a short time to head to St. Louis, MO to visit son Ryan’s family in their new house.
We hope to be there around the 15th or 16th for about a week or so before we have to head to our Workamping job (with Mike and Terri) at the Strom Thurmond COE Recreation area , near Atlanta, GA. The lake there straddles the boundary between GA and SC. We’re going to be there three months. Workamping should keep us out of trouble for the most part. The good thing is it is still within reasonable driving distance to the Columbia, SC Veterans Hospital if I need any follow up appointments.
Then come January 1, 2014, we’re heading West. NOT!!!
Seems my brother Gordy,(shown here with our granddaughter Anabelle) has allowed his daughter, Samantha to get engaged to the man of her dreams.
So there is a wedding in the future. Originally she planned to have the wedding on 14 March 2014. Kind 'a tight for us for a leisurely WWS (Western Winter Sojourn) but we could still make it and have a good time on the “Left Coast”. A few PDD days, but it would be worth it.
She changed the date to 1 March 2014!!! Without checking with us first! Samantha torpedoed our plans. The nerve of some people’s children!
So we’ve watch our WWS plans sink out of sight.
What are we going to do now? Florida, here we come.
Just wanted to give all our Floridian friends fair warning. :cP
And for our Western friends, there are still many other months left in 2014. That gives you plenty of time to find places to hide from us…
