J. Strom Thurmond Lake
Was a very busy weekend!
Hope everyone enjoyed the 4th!
We worked on the 4th, at the Lake Springs gatehouse.
George and I are working there for the rest of the summer.
It is a busier gatehouse, on the Georgia side of the lake.
Friday was no exception.
We counted over 1800 people coming in to enjoy!
There were a lot of picnics and bbq's happening.
We saw some fireworks after we got home,
just over the treetops in Modoc.
I find I really enjoy our time off during the week.
Monday is laundry day, and catching up on blogs,
and just relaxing!
This past week we both had eye exams.
Since my insurance was dropped back in November,
we lost our vision insurance as well.
I was down to my last pair of contacts, yikes!
I found a reasonable plan through Davis Vision online,
so we signed up as of July 1st.
Although I'm not a fan of Wal-Mart vision,
that's where we went, due to the convenience.
George got a new prescription, and new glasses.
My left eye prescription went down a notch, and the right eye is the same,
so I ordered a full year of contacts.
All this for only $189! Not too bad :-)
We're still arguing with GM over the turbo issue.
The dealer in Florida is willing to reimburse us the $250 for the sensor,
but we want the labor too!
Waiting on a call from them to resolve.
I guess it's better than nothing :-(
George and I haven't heard from Amazon as to our start date.
Ideally we'll leave here on the 3rd of September,
staying a couple different places along the way to KY.
We'd like to spend a few days in Knoxville, TN and explore.
We should be hearing from them in a few weeks.
Still enjoying the wildlife around the lake.
Lately a different bird is eating our seed!
Til next time....
enjoy your summer!
