After my Weight Watcher Meeting, our walks, and line dancing, we packed up and headed to Goshen.
First on the list was Mark's eye appointment. His prescription had changed, so...that resulted in a new pair of glasses which led to a new pair of sunglasses as well.
By the time we were finished at the eye doctor, we were both ready for lunch. Mark's choice for his birthday was the
South Side Diner. This is one of the diners that has been
featured on Food TV's show...Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives.
Mark chose a Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich, which was one of their featured items and number one seller. I chose fried clams.
No, birthday cake here... so we chose to share a slice of lemon meringue pie. He said, it was almost as good as Mi-Mi's!
This was truly
an old time diner. For such a small place, the menu had a lot to offer. Maximum capacity was maybe 50.
We might have to try it again while in the area.
Since we were in Goshen, we decided to drive out to the fairgrounds and see if we could catch up with Bob and Molly. The Newmar Rally is going on right now at the fairgrounds and looking for a Tiffin Motor home in the middle of a fairground full of Newmar's was like looking for a needle in a haystack. We did finally find the Bus, but no Bob and Molly. We just left them a note that said we stopped by to say hello and would catch up with them later.
By this time, we needed to head back to Elkhart for a stop at the Wal-Mart store. Mark had a couple of prescriptions that needed to be re-filled, plus we needed to replenish a few items around the house.
However, in addition to the milk, bread, and chips...Mark found himself another
birthday present. This ice chest is a Coleman DC cooler...so no ice required. It also has a AC adapter. It fits nicely in the front of the pull out tray. Now, some of those cold drinks that take up space inside can stay outside. It will also come in handy for those long day trips.
Now, back at the campground, we settled in for the evening.
Mark says he had a great day, and thanks to you all for the many birthday wishes and phone calls.
