September 10, 2012

I fixed breakfast and we sat outside at the picnic table.  It is finally cool enough to be able to eat outside.  The camp host in our loop left this morning but the other host came by and introduced himself.  We drove into Alexandria and went to Walgreens to fill a prescription for me.  On the way to town we passed a lot of cotton fields. Then we drove to Silver Dollar Pawn Shop that is featured on Cajun Pawn Stars on the History Channel.  We looked around but didn’t buy anything.  They were filming by the gun cases today and I saw Jimmy (the owner of the shop) behind the counter.

We had lunch and then found three geocaches.  In one of them we picked up a Smoothie King punch card that was full of punches and had enough for a free smoothie.  We will use it when we get back home.  We drove downtown to a bar and had an Abita Brewing beer then went to the local American Legion and talked to people there.  The commander of the VFW bought us a beer.  (The VFW is closed on Monday.)  We drove back to Walgreens and picked up my medicine and then headed back to camp.  We stopped for supper a few miles before the turn off to camp at Tunk’s Cypress Inn.  Jim had all you can eat fried catfish and I had the senior grilled chicken with shrimp fettuccini.  I wanted their bread pudding with rum sauce but I was too full.  We will be going to my brother’s house in Dayton tomorrow.  Mom is having some problems with a sore by her ankle that won’t heal and they may have to do a little surgery.  She has two more doctor’s appointments on Thursday and on Monday to decide what to do.
