Ice Cream Social

Volunteer Village
J. Strom Thurmond Lake
Modoc, SC

Last night it was decided to gather together
to celebrate George's birthday,
Cheryl's birthday (on Sunday)
and my departure (on Monday).
A perfect thing to do was an ice cream social!

Each couple brought a half gallon of ice cream,
and their favorite toppings.
Cheryl even made cupcakes,
and David & Janet made a pie!

We all sat around talking for awhile..

Then finally we broke out the ice cream!

Even Lucy enjoyed licking some bowls :-)

We really enjoy the volunteers here.
We're all from different walks of life,
with different RV lifestyles,
but we all get along just great!

This is my last weekend to work the gatehouse with George.
I've found out that my Dad will get palliative care at home soon.
The tumor in his brain is causing some disorientation,
and some comical hallucinations.
My Mom told me yesterday he kept seeing miniature golf carts
on the doctors waiting room floor :-)
I guess you got to keep your humor in this situation.

Next post from California!
