October 10th, Wednesday – No Storm for Us; An Odds and End Day; Grateful

This morning when we woke the weather forecast was for heavy rains mid day and

winds between 15 and 25 mph.  Guess what?  Nothing ever developed.  Oh, we had some rain, two spats of about 20 minutes each and a bit of wind from time to time but nothing more.  Now how about that!  No complaints from either of us.

This morning it was back to the chiropractor for me.  I’m so much better and I want to keep it that way so we decided to find someone here that I can go to on a regular basis.

Barbara will probably start going on a regular basis as well.  After all, we’re going to be in this area for the next 6 months.  Of course this is just the start, we both have other doctors we need to visit while we’re here.   We have to get done as much as possible before we leave the area and begin traveling the country again next year.

We also did some more shopping today.  A little bit of this and a little bit of that.  Nothing major but things we were out of.  Given what we expected weather wise we thought it wise to stay around Graybeard today.  If we had only known that the forecast would be wrong.

I finished up some more projects, little ones here and there.  Checked all the lockers and closets for any sign of water.  We’re good.  Cleaned the bathroom and waxed the shower.

Got out the vacuum since we’ve been for some reason tracking in a lot of dirt lately.  We’ll move in a couple of days to another site that has a concrete patio so that should help keep the dirt at bay.  The new site also has 50 amp service.  Currently we have 30 amp service and we need to do a bit of juggling  electricity wise to keep the AC on.  We would love to leave the AC off but it has been so muggy these last couple of days and the forecast is for temperatures in the 90’s beginning I believe this Friday.

So that was our day.  Not really exciting but then again they can’t all be a whirlwind of activity.  I’m finally getting back to planning for next year, the big question is Should we

do the Midwest or go out West?  Time will tell.  Some changes have already been made.  Let’s see how things shake out over the next couple of weeks.

Time to go but before I do just a reminder to keep all those impacted by this major hurricane in our thoughts and prayers.  This was as we all know the worst one in a real long time.  It is going to take some people years to recover – if they ever do.  We thank the good Lord that we were able to get out of harms way and ended up with no issues.

So, thanks once again for joining us on The Road of Retirement as we traveled along together, hand in hand, singing our song.  We hope you had a good day, that you were able to enjoy the day to the fullest.  Now before I go a thought for all of us to ponder:

As always,  if you are coming to the end of your day with concerns and worries, let me suggest that you turn them over to God.  After all, He is going to be up all night so why not let him handle them for you.

Time now for our evening prayers and eventually some shut-eye.  Till tomorrow.

These are the voyages of  Graybeard and it’s occupants, four paws and two humans.  Our continuing mission: to explore as many new states as possible, to seek out new acquaintances and make new friends, to boldly go where we have not been before

  1. I hope the regular chiropractic treatments help you both stay well. I have been going on a regular basis since the early 80s. I’m a believer. Thankful that you weren’t effected by Michael but those that were need our prayers.
