After I got back from Europe on July 7th, I started back with pool therapy, but then I came down with a cough.

26 July

We went out to eat at Courtney's. It doesn't look like much from the outside

or the inside either, but Julie is a wonderful cook. He goes out and catches the fish ad she cooks them. I did notice that they were both moving slowly and it took some time to get our food. We both had the

I had some doctor's appointments for surgery scheduled the end of August, and another one to see about getting rid of the cough. We had lunch after one of the appointments at
Jerry's Place.

Bob had their Maryland Crab soup, which was a spicy vegetable soup - they put the crab on top last. It was $8.00 which he thought was expensive.

I had the soft crab appetizer, which was very good, but was $20.00

I looked at the venue where the wedding was to be held and realized it was outside overlooking the beach. I thought I should be wearing a hat to protect me from the sun in August in Florida. But I didn't have any hats that I could wear with a cocktail dress. So when Bob was getting a prescription filled for my cough, I went into the exchange and found a big hat which was straw with black trim. Then I had to figure out what to wear with it as I don't have many clothes in that color (brown or tan)

7 August

Lynde came and got me packed, I stopped the mail and the papers, and we left the house about 9:00 on August 7th

We were at the Governor Nice Bridge to cross into Virginia by 10:15. They were doing something at the toll booths and had one lane shut down.

We were driving straight down I-95 to Selma where we were going to take some cemetery photos. But Bob seemed sleepy, so we stopped near Richmond at Wendy's. He got a Frosty and a hamburger and I got lemonade and

Total $9.97

We got to Selma about 2:45 which was too early to check in to the hotel, so we went to the cemetery first. But it was too hot for me in the cemetery. I thought I had taken the second set of car keys, but I picked up the truck keys by mistake so I couldn't get back into the car. We checked into the hotel but they gave us a room with a tub and not place to sit and get a shower. I thought about swimming in the pool, but I had forgotten to bring a plastic bag to put a wet swimsuit into.

We went out to eat and I said to stop at KFC, but Bob drove right past it because he thought he knew where it was (he didn't) and so we stopped for gas. He accidentally put hi-test into the car which cost 30 cents more. And then we went back to KFC. I liked my chicken, but he couldn't eat his.

August 8th

We are heading for me son's house today. Bob brought me some breakfast and I stopping entering photos in the cemetery database. We checked out (we used points so it cost $17.00) and we went back to the cemetery - it was cooler - and took some more photos. Altogether we took about 500 photos

This time we stopped at Arby's about 12:15 and I got a

and a small Jamocia shake. Bob had a regular roast beef and a chocolate shake.

We got down to the place on I-95 where we had to turn east on I-24 and I put our son's address into the phone and attempted to tell Bob the directions. But he did not like the directions. He wanted to go the way he remembered, except that he didn't remember what it was exactly - he just knew it was not the way I was telling him. He saw a gas station and thought it was a good price so we got gas. Then when he found the place that he remembered, there was another gas station which was 10 cents cheaper. He was very unhappy that he paid 60 more cents (for 6 gallons) than he needed to pay

Our son had taken off this afternoon so he would be there when we got to his place and he let us into the apartment which he rents as an Airbnb. He had a ramp for the scooter, but it hung up a little on the top. We had a nice time talking to him, and he and Bob got chicken from the local gas station for dinner. Our daughter-in-law was working 2 pm to midnight.
