New Chairs!!!!!!!

Up around 8:30 a.m. Wow, we were early birds today. LOL

John and I met the TSC gang at McB’s Restaurant and Bar for lunch. Back when I worked for TSC we would eat there atleast once a week. Each day they serve lunch specials but they are known for their wine burgers. The lunch special for today was fried chicken or pork steak with sides of homemade macaroni and cheese, turnip greens, fried okra, cornbread and blueberry cheesecake for dessert. This is a unique place where you can eat lunch and get insulted for fun. Our favorite waitress has worked here for years and she doesn’t mind telling people exactly what is on her mind. She is very entertaining and takes good care of her customers. We always like to sit in her area because we know we will be laughing.

Several of us ordered the lunch special, a few got wine burgers and one of us chose the fried shrimp dinner. Sam surprised John and I and bought our lunch. Thanks Sam.

Ok, now lunch is over and the TSC has to go back to work so we said our goodbyes and went over to Office Depot for some business cards. After purchasing the business cards we ventured over to "The Back Store”. John was in search of a roll pillow for lumbar support to use while sitting in his recliner. As we entered the store there were all these comfortable looking chairs just waiting to be tried out. Within minutes I fell in love with a chair that was built for short people. Hey my feet actually reached the ground. Anyone who knows me knows that this a rare occurrence. LOL While I was sitting in this chair enjoying this “rare occurrence” I looked over and what did I see……John sitting in a tall people chair. To make a long story short we ordered two recliners. Mine will be here in seven to ten days and John’s in 14 weeks. We will stay in Mississippi until my chair is here next week then hit the road. John’s chair should be here when we return to Mississippi in November.


This is what my “short people” chair will look like.


This is what John’s “tall people” chair will look like.

The chairs will have natural colored wood bases with cream colored leather. Oh, by the way, John found the pillow he was looking for.

After stimulating the economy, we returned to the camper and John placed our old recliners on Craig’s List to sell. In less than an hour John received a call from an interested party.

Dad was feeling better tonight and wanted to play 10 Penny so John and I drove over after dinner. We were almost finished with the first game when John received a call from the person interested in the recliners. He left to meet them at the camper then returned to play more 10 Penny. Yeah!!!!! The old recliners are sold and will be picked up Tuesday.


Dad with Sockey after playing 10 Penny. Looks like Sockey is on the cordless phone. He better not be making long distance calls. LOL

Laugh everyday. Happy trails. Stay safe.


  1. I've seen those neat chairs in the newer RV's...They look so comfy. We still have the original ones in the Hiker, but I keep hoping they will die and we can get the newer open look like those you got..Lunch sounded fabulous..and Sockey was probably screening calls for your Dad (who also looks much better)...

  2. Will have to see how you like the new recliners after you get them.Linda has a very bad back and the Lazy Boys that came with our 5ver are are not near as comfortable as previous Lazy Boys we have owned.

  3. Just came across your blog...I am jealous, my DH and I are hoping to start on the RV retirement traveling soon..we are starting small with a truck camper we picked up the first of the summer and now getting repair work done....see you are from MS, we were just there in Clinton for my aunt's funeral...
    we hope to be on the road in Sept. for some short trips to begin..looking forward to following your blog!
