The Beginning travel blog


We went to the Social Security Office in St Cloud right when they opened so I could check out my options on Social Security… I have been drawing on a surviving spouse for awhile now but I got a letter saying that I may be able to receive more on my own records….. St Cloud is a smaller town and I wanted to visit there instead of Minneapolis/St Paul because of the long wait at this area… Well, the wait was just as p long because of less staff but they were so friendly that I didn’t mind waiting a couple of hours… Especially when they told me that I could get a couple of hundred a month more by switching over to my own…. Yippee….. That will cover a week of the price increase in diesel….. No, I’m not getting smart and I sure do appreciate the raise but I guess we can never get ahead n this game….

We got back at our campground shortly before check out time but the good people at St. Cloud RV Park let us delay our departure so that we could go out to lunch with Garry and

Jenny before leaving….. We decided to try the Green Mill again but on the way there we encountered traffic lights out along the detour that was already a problem…. When we finally arrived we found out that the electricity had gone out in a large area and the Green Mill could not provide service…. Wow, they really must not like us…. 2 days in a row…

Well we did find a Ground Round that was still open and went in there… The lunch was just so-so so I won’t tell you about it….

We returned to Lake Elmo for a couple of days to keep an appointment with the eye doctor early this morning.. Nothing unexpected… We both needed new glasses and we should get them in about a week….From there we went to Caribou Coffee and drank our fill until our eyes de-dilated .. It took us quite awhile but eventually we were able to go to the mall where I could get my hair colored…. Geese, why is it when I say brown it comes out red… No matter where I go for a color, the red pigment comes out and I hate it….Ya I have freckles but not that bad and they have faded over the years… So how come I have red hair???? Jan, I need you… You got me the color I want…

I am writing this with the TV telling us all about another tornado in our area and the weather channel n our radio is screaming so we are keeping an eye on what is going on… The ranger just came and told us where the shelters are but we have already been there done that so we will just keep watching and be ready to run when necessary……

We’ll come back tomorrow and tell you how we made out…. I hope……
