Yup, missed a day. We started playing Mexican Train and before I knew it the hour was close to midnight and I was ready to crash. So here we are today getting caught up.
We are definitely having some rather un-Florida weather. Days are staying around 60 degrees and nights are in the mid 40’s. No problem, however, staying warm. As of now the heat pump is working just great. Along with the electric heater we can keep the inside of Graybeard at a very comfortable temperature. Just as long as it doesn’t get any colder we’ll be fine.
No rush this morning. So we slept late, watched a Hallmark movie, had a late breakfast,
made a shopping list, and then got dressed and headed out. We headed to our mecca of grocery shopping, you guessed it, Aldi. It’s only about 20 minutes from the house in
Brooksville so it was an easy ride to and fro. With the list in hand we went up one aisle and then down another and in less than an hour we were done and heading back home.
Back home I decided to attend to a few more things that I know I will not be able to do after next Monday – at least not for some time. First on the list, late last night we heard a thump on the roof. Acorns usually don’t make that much noise so what was it? Today I climbed the ladder to the roof to take a look. Nothing. The only thing we can think of was, as in the past, a squirrel must have taken a flying leap from a nearby tree.
Next, it was time to take care of the slide seals on the outside. Once a month I inspect them for tears or rips and treat them with 303 Aerospace Protectant. No issues with any
of the seals so that’s another project I can cross off my list. Time to move on.
Coming inside I cleaned all the windshield pillars and the molding around the front driver’s side door and the passenger window. While up in the cab area I also installed the new wooden plate that holds an electrical outlet and a 12 volt outlet. The old one was ruined due to water leaking around the front passenger window. I’ll need to keep my eye on this area going forward. I don’t want to have to replace this plate again.
I believe we are now in good shape once I go for my surgery. The only thing left to do is teach Barbara how to dump the black tank. But then again it only has to be dumped every 14 days so if I dump it on Sunday she probably will not have to do it. I’ll be back on my knees when it has to be done again.
That was our day on The Road of Retirement. Just another day in the neighborhood. Our friends Tom and Cornelia left today. Others will be leaving within the next week. It still amazes me that the park is not full. Almost. Yet not quite there as of today. All in all our day was a great one, another one that we traveled through hand in hand, side by side, singing our song.
Thanks again for joining us today. We hope you had a great couple of days as well. If not then make the choice now to make tomorrow a great one in every way. Time now for our supper, we’re eating late today, but before going I leave you with a thought 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
