Dr. Appointment: Waiting Again - Special Visit

(Avon Park, FL) Hi 72 Lo 51 -- I'm so glad the waiting game is almost over. I had a doctor appointment that was for 11:30 but didn't get in till 1:15. I still don't get how they can get so backed up. I usually don't plan anything for the day when I have an appointment, but today was different. We got a call last night that our good friends Paul and Jill from North Carolina were nearby and wanted to come for a visit. The last time we saw them was in November at Huntington Beach State Park in South Carolina. I figured we'd be out in plenty of time to greet them, but they went for lunch in downtown Avon Park and still had to wait a while for us at our site. We finally got back and visited a few hours.

Thanks Paul and Jill for coming, and having the patience to wait for us. It was great to see you again.










Tonight was the last potluck of the year. It was "international" night, with dishes from around the world. I've been so hungry for sauerkraut and there were a few different dishes made with sauerkraut. It was a much smaller crowd than usual because so many are leaving the park for the summer.

We had an hour between eating and going to play cards with the group. It's been a great day with great friends.

Our doctors down here seem to be really good about keeping on time unless there's an emergency.

I have been thinking I haven't had enough corned beef & cabbage, and now I am going to crave sauerkraut!

Ya, I think you need new doctors, or at least some that will level with you if they are that far behind....

I know you don't like getting up early, but when Harry and I make doctor's appointments, we try to make them first thing in the morning. Then we can get in and out before they start to get behind.
