10/10/13 Thursday at Hillsville, VA (Lake Ridge RV Resort-PPA)
I (not John) slept in until almost 9 am! For an early morning adventure, I got locked inside the public restroom (single room style). I texted John of my predicament, realizing he may never hear its beep. Luckily, he’d just gotten his phone out of the bedroom, so he came to my rescue. He noted that the bolt was still locked. But I’d unlocked it. Unfortunately, not far enough it seems. Whew! My white knight to the rescue.
After breakfast I made some phone calls, finding out that before he goes for his hearing test at Costco, he can have a nurse practitioner at CVS or Walgreens check and maybe clean the wax from his ears. I finally got a person at the Catawba Valley Community College Dental Hygienist school, who gave me the number to call to get John’s name on a list for teeth cleaning at the Hygienist Clinic. I also found out that we can get our flu shots at CVS or Walgreens. Since we have Group Health (HMO) for our health insurance, we never realized what other places may give those shots. We’ll need to pay for the shots, but then we send the receipt, when we send them the claim form.
Next, I made our pumpkin muffins (with pumpkin seeds). All went smoothly this time.
For the afternoon, we went to Galax, VA for my haircut (sweet gal with a lovely southern accent), then we went shopping for John’s shoes and groceries. Considering that we only HAD to get orange juice, we ended up spending over $100 for the food and over $67 for shoes and sundries. It was fun. So it also took a good while to get everything put away back at the ranch.
John grilled pork chops using a sauce I’d made and his brand new meat thermometer (inspired by our cousin David). Yum. Quiet night of TV.
