2012 January 26
We began the day with pancakes and sausage at an event at Highland Lakes UMC. The Cub Scout pack that they sponsor was selling pancakes and breakfast tacos as a fundraiser. When we got there, there was a tangle of boys under one of the tables. They were huddled under there watching cartoons on a laptop. The parents and troop leaders were busy in the kitchen cooking pancakes and sausage. It appeared that the breakfast tacos had been pre-made and kept in a warmer. They were good pancakes (I ate mine without syrup … as usual … to help keep the blood sugar in line) and sausage. The sausage was almost as good as what we get back at Cutty’s in one of the community breakfasts.
To get to the breakfast we had to drive in some misty fog that seems to have settled in over us for the morning … and maybe the rest of the day … we’ll see.
When we got back to Shady Oaks it was only about 8:00 so I stopped at the rec hall for coffee with the guys while Ella went on home.
I said that we began the day with pancakes. Actually I began the day at 4:30 by making coffee, doing dishes and emptying the holding tanks and working on the blog post about yesterday’s activities. Ella began the day at 10 to 7 when I asked if she was going to go for pancakes. She said, “Well I thought they were serving until eleven.” I said that “Yes they are serving until eleven. However, I was wanting pancakes for breakfast … not lunch.” This isn’t that odd of an occurrence. Because I rise early and Ella would rather not, there are times that I’m ready for lunch when she is ready for breakfast.
My daughter, Heather, called today and said that she has today and tomorrow off from work if we’d like to come visit. Since it was already after one p.m. it was a little late for us to drive the nearly an hour and a half, visit for a short time and get back here before dark. (I really don’t like driving these narrow twisty, hilly, deer infested roads at night.) However, as it happens, tomorrow (Sunday) is the one Sunday out of the month that there is an early church service at 8:15. We can go to that and then leave for Heather’s. I said that I’d give her a call when we get underway tomorrow. She said that she take us to lunch.
For the last couple of days I’ve been working on a business card for Ella and I to exchange with other RVers and friends we meet along the way. After I’d printed some for us, Ella said, “You know what you forgot? Phone numbers.” A assured her that I didn’t forget. I left them off on purpose. I don’t want our phone numbers ‘out there’. I’ll gladly write my phone number on the back of the card for people that I want to call me. Otherwise, people can email me with THEIR phone number and I’ll call them. Then I can add them to my phone’s phone-book.
If I receive a call from an unknown number, I don’t answer it. And I don’t have voice mail for phone spammers, politicians and salespeople can leave messages. When I see that I have a missed call from an unknown number, I MAY try a reverse look up. >>>note from 2017, The address on our cards has changed<<<
Do you screen your calls? What method do you use?
