DAY #180

Today was rather warm (80) and very humid. Not into that, no worry, a front is on the way that promises to bring rain, wind and possibly severe weather in the next couple of days, I can hardly wait (yes that’s sarcasm). Oh yea, in addition to all that the temperature is looking to drop by about twenty five degrees (brrr).

Found out yesterday morning that on one of the TV stations I can get, is one of my favorite shows. the ‘Rockford Files’ airs at 9:00 am, so when I woke up early (for me) this morning, I was all excited that I was going to get to watch an episode (I guess it doesn’t take much to get me going). From time to time, some of the stations fade in and out with the channel I wanted being one of them, but after going through the channels this morning everything was A-OK, that is until I got to the station that the show was on. Nothing, the station wouldn’t come in. It’s a conspiracy I thought, someone is out to get me. why oh why does this happen to me? Just kidding, but it did tick me off. Sometimes I don’t know if I’m ready for this world.

Made a trip into Hartwell to do some shopping. Today I tried the local ‘Ingles’ supermarket’. I liked it, it was clean and spacious and offered quite a bit in it’s deli. I was a little disappointing in the bakery selection and for that reason, I place it a notch below Publix.

One thing I’m noticing around the area is that there aren’t the back roads that I’ve found elsewhere. I really get a charge out of going down them and getting a chance to get a glimpse of what the area is really about. Seems around here it’s main roads and that’s it. Maybe they’re there and I just haven’t found them yet, I’ll have to keep looking.

Farmers getting the fields ready for planting. Another sure sign of spring.

Went back to the campground and noticed that someone had set up at the site right behind me. So much for my cushion of space. Another thing that has been nagging me a little is the lack of wildlife. I haven’t seen any birds, squirrels, turtles, nothing, and at night I’m missing the sounds of the boy frogs calling out looking for a girlfriend. On the parks edge I have seen a couple of crows and a deer (dead). Maybe it’s too heavily foraged for birds, but it’s nevertheless a big change from the last campground.

A little nervous about the upcoming couple of days weather wise.
