Our son, Kevin, is back in the States! He’ll only be here for a couple weeks while on R&R, but it is so nice to know that, at least for that period of time, he’s out of harm’s way. If you don’t know, Kev is deployed to Iraq and has been gone since late August. It was fabulous to see his name come up on my phone this afternoon when he called to let us know he was home at Ft. Riley, KS. We won’t see him while he’s home this time because he has places he wants to go, but it sure warms my heart to know he’s on home soil. :)
The rest of our day was fairly busy, for us. I went to Curves first thing this morning. Then, about 9:30 or so, Randy & I ran errands. While I got a hair cut, Randy got a propane tank filled and fueled up the truck. Then, we stopped at the AT&T store to upgrade our air card.
On the way home we stopped at Checkers to get burgers for lunch. I love Checkers’ burgers! And their fries, too. :) That was a nice treat.
This afternoon I went to the clubhouse for a couple hours of playing music. Randy hung out at the rig. When I got back, we walked up to the bonfire the park was hosting. Darrell & Judy joined us. The fire never really got up to the “bonfire” level, but it was a nice way to end the afternoon.
Gary, our park manager, gave a valiant effort trying to get the fire going, but alas, it never really caught.
And look what some exciting folks do around a campfire:
Tonight we’ll be spending our evening in the usual manner – TV, computers, etc. :) I love our life!
Until the next time . . .
