Day 12 Rain, Rain, Rain!

got a little behind in posting.  Our plans for Monday were to have Pat and Archie meet us at our camp site and the four of us would head down to Bardstown Ky to have breakfast and take a walking tour.  When we woke up it was raining cats and dogs.  The forcast was rain all day.  Can't really complain, its the only rained out day we had on the trip.  So after a few phone calls back and forth we decided to meet up at a Cracker Barrel five miles up on the interstate ( exit 121 ) from us at approximately 9am.  At least thats what I thought was the revised plan.  I have to admit, I have some hearing loss, so I may not have heard all that Archie said on the phone.  As it turns out, Diane and I drove up to the restaurant and Pat and Archie drove to our campsite.  When they saw that our CRV was not there they took off for the restaurant.  However, Archie got confused on how the interstate exits were marked.  He thought they counted up going south when actually its the reverse.  So he was headed south and we were north of the exit our campground was on.  After awhile I got worried so gave them a call on their cell.  They were down at mile marker 112 when I got hold of them.  So to make a long story short, I got them headed in the right direction and we met and had a wonderful visit and breakfast together.  Diane had her usual french toast and I had my Old Timers breakfast.  To my surprise, Pat and Archie also love the Old timers too.  When we left Archie had a gift for Diane.  The day before we were commenting on the many jars of green beans that they had put up for the winter.  We had some of their green beans for dinner on Sunday and they were great.  Nothing like fresh, home grown veggies.  So Archie gave Diane a jar for us to take home with us.  The rest of the day was spent inside, catching up on reading.  The only decent channel we got on the antenna was a local CBS station so were able to watch the season premier of Hawaii Five-O.  I'm going to have to look into getting one of those antenna signal boosters that they sell at Camping World.
