Thursday, September 27, 2012—Springfield, MO

What a beautiful day; a bit overcast, but cool and otherwise just a perfect day the Lord has given us to enjoy.

We walked around the campground a couple of times, about 3 miles, Wayne dropped by to visit, and we had breakfast.

Our schedule for October is shaping up to be quite busy, with one 50th anniversary celebration, 4 birthdays, 3 quartet concerts, 4 Sunday School lessons to prepare for and teach (Kay), and one RV rally.  Plus, the Honda CR-V has been idle awaiting for a much needed oil and filter change and other scheduled maintenance which we had on the calendar for October 6.  We both had wanted to go shopping in Springfield, MO, so on the spur of the moment, decided to drive there today, get our Honda service done, and shop. We drove by the house, took showers, and drove to Springfield.

After arriving in the city, I dropped Kay off at Battlefield Mall, and took the car to Wessel Honda.  It was a really good experience.  They have an Express Service area, and I just drove in, told them we wanted an oil and filter change, air filters changed, and transmission fluid changed. They took my name and address and 30 minutes later the car was ready, and not terribly expensive either!  They definitely have the key to success as far as we’re concerned and we’ll continue to do business with them under these circumstances.

It is customary for us to have lunch at Olive Garden when in Springfield, and we have the same thing each time:  calamari, salad, soup, and breadsticks.  After a late lunch, we were off to Sam’s Club; Sam’s Club in Springfield is clean and neat, and the staff is friendly. After almost $500 worth of groceries and merchandise, we made the 2 1/2 hour drive home, unloaded the car, and returned to the motorhome for the night.  It had been a good day, and best of all, we can drive the Honda again!
