Judy and I have been nestled in at ACOE Blacksburg CG for three days now just relaxing for the most part. Very few campers are here but the park host has informed us that the CG will be almost full for the weekend.
Monday I took the Dodge Ram into the local (Augusta, GA) dealership to have the “Check Engine” light investigated. It illuminated as I was driving down from Huntington Beach SP Sunday. It turned out to be a “false alert” so it was reset.
Wed we took a short trip into town to visit Wally World and grab a bite to each. For lunch we tried a small mom and pop barbecue diner/café. I am amazed at the many different was barbecue is prepared and presented from region to region and sometimes within a state. The barbecue was served with a pork hash over rice. The owner could see a little hesitation on our faces as we looked at the menu so she brought us over a small sample of the hash. To our surprise, it was very tasty. I took some pics but I am not able to access them now – more on that later.
After lunch I ask Judy to stop by the Verizon store I had seen on our way in. I have been reluctant to consider doing anything that would alter my plan because I have an unlimited data for my 3.5 year old Droid. Over the past few days I took a look at my data usage for my phone and saw it was minimal so I had been thinking about upgrading Judy’s worn out Envy 3, even older than my Droid. She had been talking about getting a “tablet”( l I Pad Air) lately also. We both ended up with new phones, Droid Ultras, and an I Pad Air tablet. Judy renewed our two year contract which enabled her to purchase her phone for $99.00. I only had to pay $30.00 for mine because Verizon had a smartphone upgrade promotion going on. I did have to turn my old phone over to them instead of putting it into the pile of old cell phones that I have collected over the years. The Ipad Air cost $429 after the $100.00 rebate. We opted for the 10Gig shared plan between devices. In the end my monthly bill increased by twenty dollars, I think. Once home, I set up Judy’s Gmail and FB accounts and added a few other apps. Judy was most happy with was the fact that she was able to download a “Harry Potter” ringtone. I was disappointed that all the pics I had on my old phone could not be transferred to the new phone. I was given the small card but I don’t know how to transfer the pics on it to another device. If you can offer any advice I would greatly appreciate it.

That is all for now. Thanks for stopping by.
