Bad Weekend

Well, most of you probably already know that our Clemson Tigers failed to show up on Saturday night. They lost to the SC Gamecocks 34-13. We cannot figure out what has happened. Oh well, we just hope that they will win their game against Virginia Tech this weekend for the ACC title. Virginia Tech has been playing very well so it will not be easy if we do win. We beat them earlier this year but things have changed an awful lot!! We will have to wait and see…..

Hope everyone out there had a great weekend. Have fun and travel safe!!

* Thanks to all of our followers who commented on the picture of the fur babies looking out our window. We got a big kick out of them!!

A Special Picture of the Fur Babies!!

We had some unexpected visitors this morning. Our daughter, son-in-law and their two dachshunds, Dixie and Molly, came by to drop off some things. While they were here we got a great picture of them with our two looking out the window.

Hello from SC

Well, I hope everyone out there had a wonderful Thanksgiving!! We should all be thankful for what we have including our family, friends and our freedom!!

We had a wonderful time with our daughter’s in-laws yesterday, and enjoyed the great food that was prepared for us all!! It was so nice of their family to include us.

We are now looking forward to the big football game tomorrow night between our great Clemson Tigers and the University of SC Gamecocks. Of course you all know who we will be pulling for…. goes without saying!

And no, we did not participate in Black Friday shopping today so I have no stories to tell about that! 99% of our Christmas shopping is complete and was done on-line!! Love it!

Be safe out there and have a great weekend!!

The Tigers Lose :(

Well, our Clemson Tigers decided not to show up to play NC State yesterday. They lost by a huge 37-13. This was quite a disappointment and should not have happened, even with Sammy Watkins out for the game. Oh well, the state rivalry against University of SC is this Saturday and we had better win this one!!

Hope everyone is doing well out there!! The soup and chili both turned out great. And the temps are back up in the 70’s now!!

It’s Cold in SC

Well, it seems that winter has arrived here in SC!! Brrrr….. It was 28 last night and only reached 51 for a high today. It is supposed to warm up a little the first of next week.

We are getting ready to spend another weekend on football and auto racing. Our Clemson Tigers play NC State and our hope is that they will get another one in the win column. We will certainly be pulling for them.

While the game is on we are planning to cook a large pot of homemade vegetable beef soup and a smaller pot of hot dog chili in our son’s kitchen. We will eat some of it tomorrow, of course, and the rest will go into the freezer for some of those cold days!!

Hope everyone is either in a warm place for the winter or bundled up and staying warm!!

Safe travels!! Go-o-o-o-o-o-o-o Tigers!!

Clemson Tigers Win ACC Division Title!!

Our Clemson Tigers won a nail biter Saturday by 3 points, with a field goal at the very end of the game. But, a win is a win!! And they clinched the ACC Division Title too.

As you can tell it was another football and NASCAR weekend!!

Charley’s Dad has been with us since Wednesday of last week and has returned home today. Yesterday we all got together at our son Jason’s house for lunch, compliments of our daughter-in-law, Duffie. This was for Charley’s birthday and our grandson Jed’s birthday, who will be 12 tomorrow. As you can see, I haven’t had much time to worry about posting the last few days!! We didn’t even think to get the camera out either (shame on us!!).

Everyone is doing well on our end. Hope everyone out there is staying healthy and enjoying the fall weather, wherever you might be.

Safe travels!!

Back at Home Base

We made it safely to our son’s front yard today and will be planning to be here through Thanksgiving and Christmas. After that we will be headed to Florida for the remainder of the winter. It was great to see our grandchildren after being away for a few weeks!!

I will be posting less frequently during this time but will do updates 2-3 times each week just to stay in touch.

We did make our stop at Brown’s RV and they took pictures of our gray tank that is to be replaced due to a leak. The company for our extended warranty has to approve the replacement before it can be ordered. So the 5er will have to go back to their service department when the part has come in. Charley feels better now that we have the ball rolling on this.

Safe travels everyone!!

Packing Up

Today we have been packing up in preparation for our departure early tomorrow morning. We are leaving early to take the 5er by Brown’s RV. We need to get a leak in our gray tank checked out to see what needs to be done to repair it. We are not sure if the tank will have to be replaced or if it can be fixed. We will let you know…..

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ocean Lakes the past 10 days. We enjoyed seeing our friends from Georgetown and all the great seafood!!

As a matter of fact, Charley almost convinced me to stay a few more days but we decided that we should get on back to see all our kids. We also are planning to get Charley’s Dad and let him stay with us for a few days. It is also about time to get started on Christmas shopping (especially since I do most of that on-line).

And we did not do any pictures on this trip. Amazing isn’t it?? Smile We have so many pictures of Myrtle Beach we just took a break this time.

Safe travels to all!!

Update from Myrtle Beach

Well, I have been a little lazy and haven’t posted for a few days but it has been rather quiet.

We spent a quiet day here at the campground on Monday, taking care of only a few small cleanup chores that needed to be done.

Tuesday was Charley’s birthday so he got the day off from chores. After he took his nap we went shopping for a new pair of boat shoes at the Bass Pro Shop for his birthday and I wound up spending more on me than him!! But that is usually the way it goes, right guys?

Then we went out to dinner at a seafood buffet (Crabby Mike’s) and it was so good!! We both ate too much then came back and became zombies for the rest of the evening.

Yesterday we did laundry and washed the 5er during the day. We were invited to dinner last night at the home of one of our friends (and Charley’s former boss), Jim and “Bear” Ross who live in Georgetown. We had some great food and even better company!! Our two fur babies went with us and were parked in the yard during our visit. Jim and Bear have chickens and cats. The chickens were a new experience for our two little ones. They did not know how to act when the rooster called out cockle-doodle-do!! The cats went into hiding…. We plan another visit when we are back on the coast of SC.

Safe travels to everyone out there!!
