Current Location: Whispering Hills RV Park, Georgetown, Kentucky
Malcolm here back at the keyboard. It certainly has been a long week. Val filled you in on most of the details. Now, I’m just working on gradually healing from my laproscopic appendix surgery last Tuesday. Fevers seem to have stayed away since I left the hospital and I’m taking two different oral antibiotics for the next few days.
Sometimes your schedule just gets thrown a loop, but you adjust and move on. Today would have been the day we would have been flying from Nashville to Seattle to see our daughter and family. Instead, we’re still in Georgetown, Kentucky. We’ll lose a bit of money on the tickets, but will be able to reuse them the next time we fly west.
Malcolm has a follow-up appointment on Wednesday, May 28th, so we’ve decided to just stay in Kentucky both this week and next. Next Monday afternoon, we’re planning on moving the trailer just a few miles down the road to the Kentucky Horse Park so we can be closer to Lexington and family. We’ll play it by ear that week on what we do the next week.
Technically, we should head back to Nashville for work that week, but then we are off the following three weeks to head to the Heartland National Rally in Virginia and then on to Texas. Malcolm’s employer has approved him working next week remotely and we suspect the following week wouldn’t be a problem, as well. Malcolm picked up a little extra “low impact” work for this week to stave off the doldrums while he rests. Nothing time-critical, so he can work at his leisure.
Sunday afternoon, we had the Wolbecks over for a simple chicken noodle soup dinner. Malcolm picked the menu. Val’s sister Anne came over as well. We spent quite a while just sitting around and chatting before everyone had to head home. The Wolbecks were packing up to leave on Monday morning.
Late this morning, we headed to the store to buy another pair of long sweat pants, but didn’t find any at WalMart. We didn’t feel like running to several different stores, so Malcolm will alternate between his existing pair and a couple pair of running shorts he has. Anything with an elastic and drawstring waist is comfortable right now.
After WalMart, we ate lunch at O’Charleys, then headed over to Great Clips for Malcolm to get a haircut. We headed back to the trailer and Malcolm did a little bit of his work assignment while Val did a couple loads of laundry. There are only three washers and three dryers here at the park and one of the dryers wasn’t working.
We had Hot Dog Bean soup for dinner, relaxed for a bit, then went out to go walking at a local park called Yuko-En. It is billed as the Official Kentucky-Japan Friendship garden. It’s located just north of downtown Georgetown, Kentucky along US 25. Toyota built a huge auto manufacturing plant in Georgetown in the 1980’s, thus explaining the Japanese connection.
After a walk in the garden, we hopped back in the car and headed to DQ for a frozen treat. Then, back to the trailer to take it easy.
