We started the day out going and we went all day! My sweet friend Gina has a bad tooth, circumstances have prevented her from seeing a dentist and the tooth decided to really rear it’s ugly head a couple days ago. We tried to get her into a dentist yesterday with no luck, an appointment on Monday morning was the best we could do. I woke up this morning thinking, “I am going to find Gina a dentist TODAY!” The poor girl was miserable last night—when your teeth ache, your whole body aches! Well, I was successful and we hit the jackpot—the dentist in Rockport was understanding of Gina’s fears and got her started on the right path. It is going to take some time but at least we have relieved her pain.
While we were gone to the dentist, Mike and Rollie changed the oil in Rollie’s jeep and puttered around some more. Once Gina and I got back—I started cooking, Mom and Chuck were arriving this afternoon and we were making dinner.
Gina had a craving for crabs so they headed over to Rockport purchasing crabs and shrimp. The cooking began in earnest when they got back. I made stuffed bell peppers and they were delicious—I used Gina and Rollie’s recipe with Zataran’s rice and sausage instead of ground beef. I think I’ve decided these things are a little too much trouble for the amount of meat you get!!
Mom and Chuck rolled in about 5pm and we carted all their stuff into the travel trailer to be unpacked tomorrow. They then came over to the motorhome to enjoy dinner with us.
After reading a blog Rick wrote recently about getting cable internet, a light bulb went off for us. We have RV park provided cable—our Millenicom aircard worked here in Aransas Pass but without its usual good speeds. The park wifi is a joke. Today we entered the world of high speed internet—thank you cable company—we just purchased a modem, took it to the local cable company office to get it activated and we are in business! And it costs us just slightly more per month than our Millenicom aircard.
Emmi spent the day keeping up with all the people and was one tired puppy tonight--
