Much better night last night, thankfully. I was up only once and actually slept through to 6:00 am the normal hour that I’m up. Amazing the change in a person’s attitude and outlook a good night’s sleep can make.
It’s still quiet warm at night, usually around the low 70’s. We don’t really need the AC since the ceiling fans and the fan on the dresser keep the air moving. According to sources in the know this is going to change drastically come Thursday night. The weather report is for night time temperatures in the low 40’s and high 30’s for about three nights. Let’s see where did we put that extra blanket?
We spent the morning attending to book keeping and sorting through receipts and papers we had been collecting for over a month. Once in awhile we need to weed through our collection, file the important papers and trash the rest. I also tried to reach out to the VA regarding my knee but as usual got absolutely nowhere. My super duper contact is evidently on vacation so that proved to be a dead end as well.
We heard the sound of a diesel pusher backing in behind us and sure enough Fred and his wife were back. Image this, they have been on the road in the same Class A for 23 years now. Fred laughs when he talks about it, he says it all began when they sold their house 23 years ago, then bought the rig and they never looked back. Now let’s see in 23 years I’ll be 93 and if I’m behind the wheel of a motor home I’ll probably be the biggest risk on the road!
Early afternoon our good friends Dennis and Pam stopped by. They are still members of Escapees even though they no longer own a rig and are no longer on the road. It’s always great to spend time with them. So we sat and swapped stories about this and that and just enjoyed one another’s company for a few hours. They live in Ocala and we are looking forward to spending more time with them in the coming months.
That was our day on The Road of Retirement. Right now we’re sitting and enjoying TV shows we have not been able to watch for months. Amazing, I have to confess I really missed being able to sit and watch what we wanted when we wanted. I think I’m getting spoiled real quick! Once again it was a good day for us made even better by the fact that we did it together, traveling along, side by side, hand in hand, singing our song.
Thanks for joining us again today it was great having you along. Come join us again tomorrow. Time to say goodnight but as always a thought for each 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
See you on down the road
