J. Strom Thurmond Lake
We've really been enjoying our time here working for the COE.
Every weekend we get to greet happy people coming into our park to enjoy the lake.
Last Monday our friends, Mike & Terri, left Modoc for points north.
We all stood around watching them get ready,
being careful not to interrupt their routine :-)
One last picture of them..
Leaving in a trail of dust..
That night we sat around the fire with some of the other volunteers..
Last night we had a fire of our own,
and really enjoyed the 3/4 moon overhead..
A couple of the other volunteers wandered over and joined us for a bit,
but it was getting dark, so I only got a picture of Lucy :-)
Today we had a great time at a BBQ given by the Corps
for the volunteers and camp hosts.
It was held at one of the other day use parks, West Dam.
Even though the weather was in the 90's,
we were under a shelter, with a nice breeze coming off the lake.
There was a lot of good food to go along with the burgers that were grilled.
Jim & Linda were presented a certificate for all their hard work
with the Water Safety Program.
Earlier today, George took the truck into a Chevy dealer nearby.
We had problems with our turbo sensor back in October, 2012.
In the last 6 months or so, the check engine light has come on,
and the diagnosis has been the turbo again.
Apparently we need one :-(
GM is going to pay for part of it, as we're out of warranty now,
but the problem started while it was still IN warranty.
It's always something!
