Another Week With Friends

 

Monday

Chuck and Kevin had a tee time for 9:05 for the golf course here on base.,  Kathy and I decided to hit the mall. I was in need of a pedicure so that was on the list and I found one at the mall. Kathy had some good luck with clothing.  On our drive back to the campground we stopped for lunch at Po Folks. We both had chicken n dumplings and it was really good and a very reasonable price.    We had a quiet evening. Kevin watching football and I was chatting.

Tuesday

Finally, we had the appointment for Kevin to have the Mohs Surgery on his ear. He was diagnosed in June with squamous cell cancer on his earlobe. After a long series of events we finally managed to get an appointment to have it taken care of.   Once there, it didn’t sound like they were going to actually do the surgery but after I stepped in and assured them that I was promised that all referrals were sufficient and told it would be taken care of, they checked and yes, they would do it.  So three hours later we were leaving the office and Kevin was clear of the cancer. They have stitched it up and he will return next week to have them removed.  They also gave him a prescription for an antibiotic and told us to drop it off at Publix and we wouldn’t have to pay. Wow, how easy that was. Can’t believe they actually give meds away for nothing, but we are happy.

Tonight there is a potluck at the clubhouse. Kathy and I had talked about attending. She stopped by this afternoon and said Chuck wasn’t feeling all that well and I figured Kevin would be sore and wouldn’t want to go, so we decided to skip it.  Its a good thing because I pulled something in my neck and I am really sore and uncomfortable.

Wed…

I changed the dressing on Kevin’s ear and it looks good. Dr did a good job stitching it up. It isn’t bothering him either.  Talked to Kathy and we made a plan to go to a 1pm movie. We decided on Secretariat. However, when we got to the mall and went into the theatre, it wasn’t open. Oops, we had the wrong theatre. It was too late to find the other one in time,  but figured we would still head there and see Red,  which was starting at 1:40. We arrived and found a Sams Club next door. We even had time to go for a hot dog and soda before movie time. That saved us some bucks because we all know how much they charge at the movie theatre for a snack.. We enjoyed the movie but still want to see Secretariat. Guess that will be the plan for another day.

Thurs…

Kathy called and said lets go see Secretariat.. So once again we headed to the theatre for the 1pm show.  We all loved it and I think Kathy & I shed a few tears.  We stopped for dinner before heading back home.  The temps are suppose to drop tonight. We will be glad to see the humidity go away.

Fri…

Kevin and I headed out to do a few errands. I put a crockpot chocolate cake together to take to Kathy and Chuck’s for dinner tonight. They invited us to join them and two old friends that drove 7 hours to visit with them.  Dick and Jane were friends from Ca but now live near Daytona, Fl and Maine.  After dinner we taught them to play hand & foot. The guys won, but as Kathy would say, we let them win!!!  Had a great evening…

Sat…

We all met at the clubhouse for the Saturday morning $2. breakfast. Then the guys went off to play golf and we girls headed in the direction of Panama City Beach to Pier Park.  This place has lots of stores,  small shops and restaurants. It was a beautiful day with temps in the 70’s and so nice to be out. We strolled around, popped into a few shops but we didn’t buy too much.  We had lunch at Five Guys and then headed back home. Once again a very nice day. Said goodbye to Dick & Jane and we hope to catch up in Maine one of these summers.

Tomorrow will be football Sunday. It will also be our last day here in Panama City.  We head to Topsail at Santa Rosa Beach on Monday……
