Church Photo in Lieu of Attendance - Navy Chapel

Eternal Father of the Sea, Navy Chapel, North Charleston, S.C.

Renovating this old Navy Chapel on former Charleston Navy Base was on my list of projects if I'd won that $640 lottery jackpot last month. Sadly it looks worse each time I visit. I need to win that lottery soon!

Thanks to everyone for comments and emails. I've been on the run and haven't been able to respond to everyone but appreciate them all. I hosted a luncheon honoring the St. Francis Hospital volunteers at the Marriott on Lockwood yesterday and it was lovely. I am always in awe when I see the whole gang together and realize all the lives they touch. I have over 150 active hospital volunteers at Bon Secours St. Francis Hospital and more than double that in the whole Roper St. Francis Healthcare system. What an amazing group.

 I am heading up to a conference in Myrtle Beach shortly but thought I'd update you in adventures in moving - fun, fun, fun!

  • Nationwide Insurance does not take change of address information over the phone. Gee, I thought they might want to send me my next auto insurance bill. Nope. Ya gotta come in to the office.  

  • The Post & Courier customer service web page doesn't work.

  • Comcast is sorry but they have no one to take that call. 

There ya go! I don't know how so many people handle moving every couple of years. Luckily a scanverger lady who lives at a Senior Retirement home came by looking for cans in my trash. I waved her down and loaded up her van with bags of goodies.

Last question - what is the moving guidelines for alcohol? Move it or drink it?

But I'll betcha if you called to say you had some money for them they's send someone right over.

Alcohol guidelines? No drinking and driving. Everything else is wide open. ;)

It is ridiculous. I've called Comcast for twenty four hours and there is no one to respond to disconnect calls.

Psssst... you forgot the "MEEEELION" after your $640. Not that $640 wouldn't come in handy, but I think 640 MEEEEELION dollars would be a whole lot more to weep over not winning, aye? 8-)

Drink it, Joan and I guarantee that you'll come up with the winning numbers for the next jackpot lottery. I need to warn you, tho, you'll have to share it with me.

Moving alcohol? Try to drink it. I had a half bottle of Kahlua that I couldn't finish before our move from South Carolina to Florida. The movers wrapped it and put it upside down in the carton with kitchen stuff.

Yes, it leaked.

All those nitty gritty details are a pain! However, when you do the change of address form for the post office, you will get coupons from businesses like Home Depot sent to your new address.

I did! I have to add the meeeeeeeelion!

Seriously? I have called five times. There has never been anyone to talk to. Comcast customer service gives me an instant headache.

Nurse's order: Drink alcohol PRN for moving-related stress. Remaining fluids may be transferred to new address.

Good luck with the move...moving is one of my least favorite things to do :(

Your picture of the Navy Chapel really brought back some memories. This August will be 35 years ago that I was married there. I, too, hate to see it has fallen into such disrepair. I'll join you in the lottery wishing.
And adding my wishes for your move to go smoother for you.

The nice thing about $640 million is that you do have enough to share!

Charlestonjoan said...

Uhoh...sticky Kahlua mess there!

Charlestonjoan said...

See - I knew you would make a great nurse!

It is a lovely Chapel. Sad to see it fall apart. Thanks for the good wishes!
