I spent the day on a bicycle tour of the town running errands. First I went to the Family Dollar store on J street (I remember J is for junk). I needed to buy a large envelope to mail in copies of my Continuing Education for my South Dakota Dental License. We have to have 100 hours every 5 years. We just log in the information online. But you can be randomly audited to prove you have the hours. I received notice of the audit back in September, but most of my information was in our storage unit. So I spent time last night and this morning scanning the completion certificates into our computer. Then printing them to send copies to SD.
Then I headed to the Post Office to mail them. I stopped by a liquor store to pick up some creme de menthe for a cake I want to make this weekend. Then I met some other boaters for happy hour down town. But I was back to the boat in time for the marina happy hour at 5:00. Crazy how that dictates your social life now a days.
Dave spent most of the day sleeping, trying to feel better.
Highlight of the day was watching Alabama college football team beat the Texas A&M Aggies. Roll Tide!!

I enjoyed singing with the choir again at the Catholic Church. The weather was nice enough to ride bicycle. There was a pot luck today at the marina. I made my mother’s famous lemon cake. The one where you drizzle the lemon icing over and into the cake. Very moist and it was a hit. There was a Packers football game that started about 4:30, so we enjoyed the great meal with the game.

Today I started sorting through some of our family photos that had been stored in the storage unit. I think this is going to be a big undertaking. I need to research how I want to store these old photos before I start scanning them. Plus our Doxie Scanner is running slower than usual. So we will need to update that also. I think this will be a project for next summer. But I enjoyed posting high school graduation pictures of my nieces.
