December 1st, Saturday – The Best Laid Plans of Mice and Men

We awoke this morning to reasonable temperatures but with the sound of rain on the roof.  It didn’t last long, though, no more than an hour.  The weather report was for clearing skies with a nice day in store.  Sure.

Breakfast was quick and simple.  An omelette with a sausage patty on an onion roll.  Yummy and tummy filling.  Some coffee on the side and I was good to go.

Since the day was supposed to be a nice one I was off to the RV store to get a couple of tubes of caulking so I could do the windows.  Remember that promise by the weather man for a nice day?  I got home just in time for the skies to open up and the rains to come down.  It must be nice to have a job where right or wrong you still get paid.

I then did the next best thing I could think of, I opened up a chair under the awning and waited to see if anyone would join me.  Well, I didn’t have to wait long.  First Richard from next door came to join me.  Then Tom from across the way noticed the two of us and quickly came over and pulled up a chair.

We must have talked for a good couple of hours.  I can’t remember all that we talked about, RV’s of course, life on the road, the importance of family, mothers, children, the advantage of a 5th wheel, the advantage of a Class A, why we each chose what we did and so much more.  It was a delightful day just spending time with new-found friends.

Tomorrow is a big day for us.  A milestone if you will.  In honor of this day we’re going to treat ourselves to a really nice dinner out at a German restaurant that we’ve had our eye on for some time.  More tomorrow.

That was our day on The Road of Retirement. It was not the day planned but who cares when it turned out so much better.  The windows will always be there.  Time with friends is much more important.  Tomorrow, maybe Monday I will get the windows caulked.

Time now to call it quits for the evening but before I go a thought for each of us to ponder upon:

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
