Thursday, Jan 13

We have had a busy couple of weeks. Cal had arranged a trade with Lazy Days in Seffner, FL. So most of last week was spent unloading “Stuff” from their 5th wheel trailer and truck and getting prepared to go there on Saturday. We left here fairly early and got breakfast before leaving town. Things were looking good when we had a blowout on the trailer. He had a spare tire, but had unloaded all of his tools. We managed to make it to Flying J near San Antonio, but they had no service shop. They did contact a road service to come and install the spare. Not sure but it would have been cheaper to buy tire wrench and jack if they had them. However the gentleman was prompt and courteous and we only lost a bit over an hour. And Lazy Days said they would assist in paying for the service call.

So it was after noon when we arrived and left Cal and Marilyn’s rig at the “Trade-in checkpoint” We took advantage of the free lunch in the lunchroom before Cal and Marilyn headed off to do the necessary paperwork. Loretta and I wandered around the Lazy Days compound admiring a few of the hundreds (or thousands) of recreational vehicles there. We also walked next door to Camping world for some mostly window-shopping. By the time Cal and Marilyn had completed the inspection of the Motorhome and gotten a few minor adjustments made it was going on dark so we stopped on the return trip for our supper.

A good share of this week to date has been helping Cal learn his way around the new rig and getting it restocked with some of the items removed from the previous one. I had gotten a letter from our doctor in Tennessee expressing concern about my PSA test. He wanted me to have a biopsy done. So yesterday I went to a local Urology Clinic and have an appointment for the biopsy of my Prostrate done on the 25th. Dr. Desai seemed to feel that there was no problem, but as one brother has had Prostrate Cancer said the biopsy should be done for all male members of my family.

Weather has been great, but today a sudden wind gust did some damage to the patio awning. So this repair can be added to the usual minor maintenance chores.
