I was going to go to town today, but it was just too nasty out. I stayed in and read more blogs and played computer games. We're both so content just watching TV and doing our thing on the computers. The only downside, our internet connection is very slow. We use Verizon 3G for our internet, either by tethering our Droid smart phones or using the Mi-Fi. We have lots of "bars" on our phones, but the connection has been very slow ever since we've been here. We're thinking it's because of all the electronic signals from radars and communications equipment here on the base. But at least we HAVE internet, and we're thankful for that.
We watched a couple of rigs leave this morning in the pouring rain. We're so glad this wasn't a travel day for us. It would be miserable getting ready to move on a dark, dreary day like this.
We went out to dinner tonight with our good friends Les and Dee. We met them in 1982 when we moved here in the military. We try to meet up with them whenever we come to this area. They took us to Margaritas Mexican restaurant in downtown Belleville. The food was excellent. We talked for a couple of hours, then with hugs we parted and left for home. We'll see them again next Spring when we come back through.
Thank you Les and Dee for a wonderful evening.
We went back home to settle in and watch America's Got Talent to see who wins this year.
