Not much happened today. Went to nursing home to see Mom again. Stopped by fruit stand on the way back to the house and Brenda got me a jar of molasses and some greasy back beans. Also went by RC airfield and watched them fly for a little while. Went to Silva for dinner at Ryans Steak House and Buffet.

Aug 21, 2009 - Atlanta Lunch

After Brenda got her hair trimmed this morning, the four of us(Lewis,Sarah,Brenda and I) headed for Atlanta For some shopping and lunch. We went to a store called BrandsMart USA where I got a new camera. It's a Nikon 10mpx with a 2 gig memory caed. As soon as the battery gets charged we will try it out. It's about a 2 1/2 hr drive one way so it made for a long day. But fun.

Aug 20, 2009 - Cherokee Bears

After a nice breakfast at the Big Boy in Cherokee, we drove around town and took pictures of some of the 20 or so Bear Monuments that have been placed in different locations. Then went and visited some of Brenda's oldest friends. I came back to the house and did a test run with the generator. It works well. A fish fry is planned for this evening with some other friends.

Aug 19, 2009 - Picnic in the Park

After making another contribution at the casino, we came home and rested till Sarah got home from work. It was raining hard when we left the casino but cleared up later in the day. We decided to have a picnic in the park, so picked up a bucket of chicken at KFC. After eating drove to the visitor center where we caught sight of a few elk grazing in the field.
