We took a ride downtown by the lake yesterday and saw many people sunning, swimming and boating. It must be freezing cold at this time of the year but it didn't seem to bother those in the water. The area was very busy with a lot of people and vehicles so we didn't get a chance to stop and walk around.
These two children were sitting in the antlers of a moose statue on main street. Gerry wanted to get a picture of the moose, but this family was hanging around a long time and we decided to move on.
This area looked very inviting and we hope to make it back there again and sit outside along the lake. The small building on the right is a coffee shop. It would be nice to have a nice coffee and roll there while we enjoy the view.
The Car d'Lane Car & Swap Meets 25th annual show for pre-75 Classic vehicles is being held this Friday & Saturday. We saw this old Lincoln Continental convertible driving down the highway. It was a beautiful car and looked to be in original condition. Hopefully we can make it down town to check out the over 1,800 cars that are expected to be at the show.
Gerry found out about a casino about 25 miles south of town and we decided to check it out. It is owned by the Coeur d'Alene Indians and is a hotel, casino and RV park. The RV park isn't that great from what we saw with only electric, on asphalt and very sloped. It would be difficult to level a RV in this park.
The casino was very nice except for all the smokers. They had one small section for non-smokers but it had limited machines to play and they were mostly occupied when we came in. Once we signed up for the Players Club we went out and gambled their $10 they gave to each of us. We wound up playing for a couple hours and left $3 poorer. Cheap entertainment and we earned points toward prizes so we may come out ahead in the end.

I signed up for the pork chop dinner this evening and since Gerry was feeling a little better, we joined the others for an excellent dinner of pork chops, stuffing, potatoes, gravy, cole slaw, rolls and cheesecake. It was more than we could eat and brought home a doggy bag with enough for another meal.
Gerry decided it was time to see a doctor once again for the coughing and congestion issues she has been going through for a month. There was an urgent care facility about 4 blocks from us and we headed there after lunch. We did pass by an animal hospital and I thought it may be cheaper to stop there, but she nixed that.
She had a short wait at the urgent care and saw a doctor who said she had a bad sinus infection. He prescribed an antibiotic and she will be on that for 10 days. We both hope this clears up her problem and she can start to feel better soon.
That was our day, how was yours?
