Wednesday, March 28, 2018 - Bolding Mill COE Campground, Gainesville, GA, Day 7 - 0 Miles, 6,627.4 Towing Miles For the Trip

I spent the day hanging out waiting for my filters to arrive & my prescriptions to show up at the 2925 Browns Bridge Rd, Gainesville, GA 30504 Rite-Aid that is now a Walgreens. While the filters showed up at site 1 as expected, and I had no problem picking them up, there is a reason I posted the full address of the Gainesville Rite-Aid. Seems there is a Walgreens at Brown Bridge Road in Covington, GA, 75 miles away, and for some reason, my eye doctor sent my prescription there instead of the Gainesville Rite-Aid/Walgreens. To add to the confusion, there is also a Rite-Aid in Covington, so when the Gainesville Rite-Aid/Walgreens tried to contact them, there was no record of the script. Eventually, the Walgreens voice mailed me a note that my prescription was ready, and I forwarded the location to the Gainesville Rite-Aid/Walgreens and they transferred the prescription. What a mess, and one would think that since they were all Walgreens (maybe just become) the computer could figure things out. Still, I did manage to get both prescriptions, so I'm good for the next 67 days (the length of a 90 day eye drop prescription - don't ask!)

By the time I got done with all that, the near by post office had closed, so I'll have to wait until tomorrow to mail my granddaughter's birthday card.

It was a very pleasant day, with temperatures in the high 70's, so I spent the parts of the afternoon that I wasn't on the phone or at the drug store sitting outside reading. There was even a water skier on the lake, who, I hope, didn't fall. The water is still pretty cold.

Dinner was spaghetti, meatballs & sausage, with some store bought garlic bread. The garlic bread wasn't too bad, although I prefer my own - a loaf of Sesame Italian bread smeared with 1 stick of real butter and a touch of olive oil, 6-8 cloves of diced garlic, and lots of oregano & other spices. I never said it was healthy!
