Today was a town day, we ran into Parker so Brenda could talk to the folks at the Urgent Care about her knee. She had heard that maybe a cortisone shot would relieve some of her pain. The Nurse Practitioner there thought that it might give her some relief but said they didn’t do cortisone shots there. So we were off to Wal-Mart to pick up a prescription for pain pills and a few groceries as we are expecting visitors this afternoon.

Once we got home it was time to head over to Mike and Janna’s where we were meeting them and Laurie and Odel for a late lunch, early dinner. Right on time Laurie and Odel arrived in our little conclave although they were wondering if maybe the Clark’s and us didn’t get along as we are parked so far apart. We have lots of room to spread out here so we do.


Here is a shot of Laurie and Odel getting their plates ready and Mike tending the grille. The burgers were great along with all the trimmings and Laurie’s pea salad got rave reviews as did the sweets that we picked up in Parker.

Need to make my walk a little longer tomorrow morning.

After Laurie and Odel had to leave we moved up to our spot and lite our fire as it was a beautiful evening and we had a load of firewood that was just itching to get burned.


The moon is almost full tonight and the weather was warm with no wind at all, for most of the evening, so it was a very enjoyable time sitting around the fire telling stories. Although in the shot above you can see Janna had her wiener stick with her we didn’t get anything cooked as I think we were all to stuffed to think about more food at this point.



  1. What a fun day we had! Good company and good food - but it was all the laughter that was the most appreciated by us.

    BTW, the recipe for the pea salad in on my blog, down in the recipe archive, bottom of the left column: Pea Salad - Larry Sorenson's Grandmothers Recipe.

  2. Love it when you can meet up with bloggin friends and have great food and wonderful company!

    YES I just know if you can get one the Cortizone shot will help. Mine last about 6 months and if it wasn't for them I wouldn't be able to go on walks... I have had 2 surgerys on the miniscus (?) but still have the pain of arthritis. I also have a prescription cream called Voltaren Gel that helps. I know knee problems stink... Hope you find relief soon!!!

    Have fun & Travel Safe

  3. A feast in the middle of no where, how cool! Nothing better than food and friends.

    You might learn to like this lifestyle. ;c)

  4. Looks like a wonderful time! I gotta ask Mike about that three legged work bench dealie thing a ma jig in that photo!
