It was cool overnight but we decided to forgo the heater. It was plenty warm under the covers and snuggled up. Before leaving home, we opened the blinds and curtains to allow for solar heating.

We were on the road before sunrise today. Tom needed lab work at the VA clinic at 8:00 this morning. Ella waited in the vehicle, since she would not have been allowed in anyway.

The sun rose over the 183 toll road as we were driving.

Tom was about 5 minutes early for his lab work. And was all done by 8:15. That had never gone so fast or smooth. The nurse/tech hit a good vein on the first try.

Because it was a Fasting lab this morning, once Tom was done, the next stop was McDonald’s. Two sausages egg McMuffin combos at the drive through.

The next stop was for gasoline at Murphy USA, 201 Walton Way, in the Wal-Mart parking lot at 01-14-21 08:32. $39.19 later we drove around the corner.

We arrived at Wal-Mart Prescription Pickup nearly a half hour before the pharmacy opened at 9:00. That gave us time to eat our breakfast sandwiches. At 9:03 I called and by 9:10 we had the medication.

We went into Wal-Mart to buy antifreeze, holding tank treatment, and pads.
Then pulled to the north side for our Grocery pickup. By 9:45 We were loaded and on the way.

Since Wal-Mart did not have the earbuds that we wanted, we stopped at Dollar General. DG had the wired buds that Tom uses but not the Bluetooth earbuds that Ella uses. We may need to order through Amazon.

A house full of food and nothing to eat. Reminds me of the  rhyme of the Ancient Mariner.
Water, water, every where,
And all the boards did shrink;
Water, water, every where,
Nor any drop to drink.”
“Pizza sounds good to me,” said my bride. We live where none will deliver. So off we go in search of sustenance, round of shape with molten cheese, piled high with spiced sausage and mushrooms freshly sliced. Anon we came upon a Domino red and blue, as game pieces ne’er are. Home again we came to sup’ and sip ’til saited we sat to stir no more, e’re the sun dipped low and a bed we go.

Between low in the afternoon sun and setting sun, many Fast Track games were won and lost.
