August 31, 2007 Gordonsville, VA

Today was a slower day. We started out by going to Charlottesville, VA to shop at a Sam's Club. Then Carol did housework around the rig and I finally repaired the TV antenna. Having an RV means either paying through the roof to have a dealership take care of a problem or learning to do it oneself. I am learning to do more now. The guy with 6 thumbs now has a couple more fingers and one less thumb. The repair went well. Sis and Bro are now here. They checked into the lodge and came over to the campsite. We spent a great evening together - Judy brought over a home made peach pie to celebrate my birthday. It was uncooked and so they cooked it in the convection oven. It was great. Carol and I both shot our diets to heck and loved it. They also brought a CD that they made when John rewrote Happy Birthday and they sang it karaoke style with a full orchestra. It was so funny and great that I had tears in my eyes. 67 years old and getting soft. Tomorrow we return to the Civil War tour and will have them with us. We will go to Fredericksburg and from there try to see The Wilderness, Chancellorsville and Spotsylvania, as well as Fredericksburg. We look forward to the journey.
