Monday we got up all excited that our friends were coming to visit. While we waited a couple from Dollywood stopped by & we had a nice chat with them. They have workcamped for some time & gave us pointers & suggestions. Later on we met up with our friends at their hotel. We went to the Dixie Stampede dinner show. We've seen the show before but it was worth seeing again & we got to see it with friends. After dinner we came back to our RV park to watch the fireworks. We were told that this park was a great place to watch the fireworks from & they weren't lying. We drove them back to the hotel in bumper to bumper traffic. It was great to see them & we looked forward to the rest of their visit.
The next day our friends had some business to take care of so we said we would take their 13 year old & meet them at Dollywood. We told him that it was his day & we would do whatever he wanted. He had a great time & so did we since it was the first time that we actually went to the park as guests & participated in the activities there. We all met up later & had a fun time riding roller coasters, checking the craftsmen, & watching shows. After a long but fun day we went back to the hotel for dinner. Then it was home for a well earned nights sleep.
Wednesday morning Mary woke up with no voice, ear aches, & head congestion. Our plans for the day changed from Splash Country to walk-in clinic. Our friends were able to go out & enjoy the day while I stayed home & took care of Mary like a good husband should. Thursday she felt better even though her voice was still not really working. We did get together with our friends for breakfast before they headed home. Later we did a little shopping & it was back home for a nap.
Today was our first day back to work. Mary was feeling better still & wanted to try going to work. She did OK but did go home early when her voice started to give out. She went home, took a nap, & came back to pick me up when I got off from work. We will see how she does tomorrow. Well that is it for now so I will call it a night from our home in Pigeon Forge because....
Home is where we park it,
Fran k & Mary
