On Friday, Dec. 6th, we slept in. Well, we were half awake but didn’t get up until 7:15. Just felt lazy and cozy in bed. It was a cooler day and we felt the 41F surrounding the Suite. For some reason, I didn’t feel like walking and instead accepted a tea when Bill asked. I’ll probably beat myself up a bit about that but I can handle it. I’d read most blogs last night before bed so didn’t spend much time at the table.

|Before we entered the min, we chatted with a nice couple of fulltimers|
from AZ who had camped up the hill
She called themselves You-Tubers
|In we go to the Museum|

I didn't get one of us all in helmets
|But here we are, ready to go|

Don't anyone else touch it or you'd be written up!!
|Our guide described the improvements over the jack hammers|
He worked inside the mine from 1964 to 1975, I think
and he used the one on his far right
|You'll know what this necessity is!|
I couldn’t eat it all so the last portion of my sandwich was stripped of the bread and I ate the innards, the good stuff. Playing with my food I guess you could say. All we did after that was walk down the strip of Main St. where the shops were.
|A nice place for lunch|
Us girls poked inside a few of them and then with Higgins in mind, we all headed back to the vehicles. I feel bad that I forget Jo-Anne and Bob have a little dog back at the trailer. Last year, that was Bill and I with Clemson and I should know better.

We were home just before 4:30 and therefore didn’t need to get together for Happy Hour today. As Ken said, it was a happy hour all day! Bill drove today and felt that a nap was in order. It sure was, as after 10 minutes he was dropping off. I reminded him that if he woke up and I was gone, I would be at the clubhouse working on the puzzle. I took a walk around the back permanent section of the park. It was a nice night.
Before heading home, I checked that Deb and Dj’s vehicles were both at their site. They were so I walked home and told Bill. At 6, we slipped our hoodies on and walked back to Site B23. Now only Deb’s car was in the drive but we went to the door and knocked anyway. It took her a puzzled minute when she asked if she could help us……….then she realized who we were. She gave us a wonderful greeting and explained that Dj had just left for pizza.

Thank you for checking out what we’re up to. I think some of us will slow down for tomorrow. 😊
