Monday, March 26, 2018 - Bolding Mill COE Campground, Gainesville, GA, Day 5 - 0 Miles, 6,627.4 Towing Miles For the Trip

While there was no overnight rain, it was fairly windy. One neighbor was out resetting his TV dish 3 times after it blew over. I went for a walk to the other end of the campground before breakfast. Going was into the wind, but the return was OK.

I did lots of reading, both a real book (I finally finished Time Frame late last night - it never got better) and the usual forums & journals on the computer. I must really be getting cabin fever - I tried watching a movie on my Amazon Prime. For what ever reason, the copy protection wouldn't let me watch it on the computer. I should have tried the iPad since it can't record it, but I decided I didn't want to break my record of not watching a movie since the second Lord of the Rings.

A little after 3:00 I called the local Rite Aid and asked if my prescriptions were ready, including the one they had to order. They said everything was in, so I hopped in the truck & headed out. It was now a Walgreens, but they did have some of my prescriptions. The ones they had to order weren't there even though I specifically asked it they were. They also changed the quantities of the eye drops, a problem I've had all over the country. Part of the problem is the way my eye doctor writes the prescription. She writes it for 90 days in 10mL bottles. Some Rite Aids decide that is 2 bottles, and others see the 10 mL, and only give one bottle.

While each manufacturer decides how many drops are in a bottle, both Rite-Aid & now Walgreens determines that there are 20 drops per mL.  A 10 mL bottle is 200 drops, or, at 4 drops per day, 50 days worth.  Again, some druggists are willing to give 100 days worth (2 bottles) on a 90 day script, and others only give 50 days worth or one bottle. While I can renew earlier than 90 days when they only give one bottle, it uses up a refill, so I run out of refills before the end of my trip. At least the one that had to be called in to my doctor did get a refill even thought it was on a weekend. So, I will have to go back tomorrow. Both missing prescriptions are the non generic versions, so my co pay is $50.00 in stead of $10.00 Getting the full 90 day's worth is more important dollar wise with those!.  Pills are so simple unless you get into the controlled stuff.

On the way back I drove by a Publix grocery store. I stopped in to see if they had a Boston Market Orange Chicken. They did, as well as the raw chicken version of Barber Chicken Cordon Bleu. While I don't think much of their pre cooked version that can be microwaved, the raw version is good, even though you need to bake it in the oven. They also had Kendall & Jackson Pinot Noir on sale for $12.00 per bottle, so I bought one.

I also picked up a broasted chicken for dinner, which I had along with some fresh broccoli.

Until Tomorrow -
