Today’s a day for minor repairs and washing of the boat. Sandy prepares a grocery list in preparation for a trip in the courtesy car to Walmart. We had planned on going shopping this afternoon, but revise plans so we don’t get in a pinch for time getting ready for our big night out. We join up with our friends on Harmony and Firebird for the ride into town via Patti’s Restaurant courtesy van. Patti’s 1880’s Settlement restaurant is known far and wide for their 2 inch thick one pound pork chops, as well as their desserts. We all shy away from the huge chops, selecting other tasty entree’s from their menu. We all save room for dessert. Sand and I share a huge wedge of mile high chocolate cream pie. We’ve timed dinner so that we’ll be done in time for the start of the variety musical show at the Badgett Playhouse, which is almost directly across the street. We got tickets for the show yesterday. The show is billed as a Branson-style musical variety show, and it’s outstanding. A great live band provides the music, and many of the musicians sing as well. There are 3 featured singers, in addition to the emcee, who also sings. They perform music from the 50’s, 60’s 70’s as well as country, gospel, and disco. One of the band members has a great voice, and specializes in Elvis songs. We are all greatly entertained.
Tomorrow will be a big work day. First thing in the morning we’ll take the courtesy car on our shopping run. After we get back, Sandy will do laundry while I help Ron raise his mast, and then install my new combiner, which arrived today. Hopefully that will resolve my charging problems. Then we’ll do a final organization of the boat, in preparation for a planned Sunday morning departure. At least, that’s the plan.
