Alabama To Georgia, Doctors and A Plan

Thomasville, GA

69 deg. clear, no wind.
Forecast = Partly cloudy with a chance of a thunderstorm and a chance of rain. High of 88F with a heat index of 93F. Winds less than 5 mph. Chance of rain 50%.

After a pleasant stay at the Deer Run RV Park near Troy, AL, we continued heading SE on US 231. Just before getting to Dothan, AL, Jim pulled Bobbie T into another Gas station and topped her tank off with 87 octane. (Priced at $3.29 per gallon). Taking the belt route around Dothan, brought us to US 84 where we turned East and followed it into Georgia. When we got to Thomasville, we turned South on US 19 and followed it here to the City Of Roses RV Park.

We've been coming to this park for a long time. It's an older park, with a bunch of permanent RVs around the edge of the park. Some people don't feel comfortable with the people who are living in these older RVs, but we've always found them to be friendly and have never caused us any concern.  It's a Passport America Park, so for a full hookup site with 30/50 amp service and free cable TV, we're only paying $15.00.

It was 9:00 when we left the park in AL, and 12:30 when we arrived here in GA. so  it took us 3 hours and 30 minutes to travel 160 miles and stop for Bobbie T's drink.

Linda has been talking to doctor offices, trying to set up appointments. It's starting to look like it will be awhile before she can get in to see anyone.  So far, the earliest appointment that she has found would be about 3 weeks from now. :-(

Jim and Linda have also been talking to Laura. She's going to do some inquiring and see what she can come up with.

Speaking of Laura, it's been decided that we take Bobbie T to Laura and Lindsey's house on Friday and park her in or along side of their driveway. Then, the plan is to take most of Jim and Linda's "stuff" over to the house from there, hopefully getting all the essentials moved by Friday night, so that we can stay in the house.

You know, I've been thinking. When we move into the house, it'll be the first time we've lived in a house for over 12 years!!! It's going to be quite a change for me, and I'm sure it'll be a big change for Jim and Linda too. I think one of the things that I'll have to get used to is the amount of room that I'll have to roam around in. That house is so much bigger than any RV!!

Oh well, I've lived in 4 different RVs in the past 12 years, I'm sure I can get used to living in a house again. ;-)

Did you know that in Atlanta, GA, it's against the law to tie a giraffe to a telephone pole or street lamp?

  1. It's amazing to me how long it takes to see doctors, especially when you have a serious illness. My Dad is going through the same thing. Don't the doctors know that the sooner they can get in to see them the better? Geez.
