First on the list was for me to stop by the Lab and have blood drawn. I have to have it drawn monthly and sent back to my doctor in Pennsylvania. I lucked out today and there were only a few people ahead of me in line and the technician took me in fairly fast. I asked him how many people he processed in a day and he said he didn't keep count and then expressed his displeasure about how boring the job was.
We each had a $2 discount at Panera Bread and since it was just around the corner, we headed there. As usual, there was a long line ahead of us and it took a while to get to our turn. One cashier processed the customers' orders over the other cashier by a 4 to 1 margin. In any case, we were served and enjoyed the lunch there.
It was too early for our next appointment at the doctor so we went geocaching along the way there and found a couple caches. We then found some more after the office visit. It was our annual skin check and all went pretty well. They took a biopsy of one area of mine and will send it off to be checked. Gerry got a clean bill of health and is finished for the year.
We were still early for our dinner appointment and geocached a little longer. We wound up near Christina's Antiques and Gerry went in to just look around. There was construction in front of the shop and I had to park in a no parking, towaway zone while Gerry went inside. Mistake on my part. Having her in there alone without my supervision was dangerous and costly. She wound up finding two really nice Hummels and bought them. I did get a great big smile out of her, so it was worth it.
We finally joined our good friends Ellen and Jim at the Longhorn Steakhouse for dinner. They are fellow Illini who we met last year at the Diamond J RV park where we stayed last year. We wound up spending 4 hours there and just about solved all the world's problems. They are leaving in a couple weeks and we are trying to meet them again for lunch or dinner before they leave. Really nice couple.

Wait, there is more. On the way home we came across a 4-5 car accident. Just as we arrived, the police cars showed up. I managed to get around the mess and we continued on our way.
That was our day, how was yours.
