Ed & Marilyn 'The Happy Wanderers' travel blog

I am hoping that I can get a journal entry posted with the poor wifi connection we have here. The campground has been filled with Caravan RV’s for several days and the wifi system has been heavily burdened.

So with that in mind, I will attempt to get a journal entry made here to catch up on the past few days. On Tuesday, Oct 2nd, I had an appointment with the doctor, who suggested that I have another colonoscopy in three years if I am still in good health she said. Hmmm

Our friends John & Lori arrived on that date as well and we took some time to show them around Hannibal and then drove to “Fiddlesticks” restaurant for a nice dinner. After dinner we drove out to the Mansion to introduce our friends to one another. We all had a nice visit but it was late when we made it back home.

On Wednesday, Oct 3rd, Marilyn & I both had to have blood drawn for Lab work, in anticipation of more appointments with the doctors early next week. We had a brief visit with John & Lori before driving to Palmyra to pick up the grandkids. We spent the afternoon with the kids and enjoyed that time together. I was scheduled to lead a tour of Mark Twain Cave at 5:00 so we hurried back to Hannibal.

John & Lori joined the tour of the cave and seemed to enjoy that for sure. As soon as the tour ended we drove off, headed to Palmyra to have dinner at “El NoPal” Mexican restaurant. Steve & Cathy, Jennifer, Colby, Lauren, John & Lori, all joined Marilyn & I which assured that constant laughter and conversation were a major part of the evening.

Today, Oct 4th, we left around 9:30 to show our friends around Monroe City and the Mark Twain Lake area. Of course this little tour included having lunch at the “Rustic Oak” restaurant which advertises itself as having the “Best Food by a Dam Site”. It is located only a couple of miles from the Clarence Cannon Dam.

After lunch we tried to walk off some of the effects of the meal by walking around the historic district in Hannibal.

Now Marilyn & I are waiting for a bit before driving to Quincy, Illinois to watch our granddaughter perform all sorts of gymnastic maneuvers. Life is Good!
