March 5th, Tuesday – Off to Lowe’s; A Quick Lunch; Jack Pads

What a difference a day makes.  When you are used to temperatures in the 80’s and you awake to temperatures in the 50’s if just feels down right cold.  Throw in some rain and it was just a gloomy, un-Florida like morning.  I know, all you up North probably find this a bit humorous.  Tonight is supposed to go even lower, like in the mid 30’s.  Time for extra blankets, maybe even a watch cap and a pair of gloves!

Breakfast was another winner.  Barbara made me a chili cheese omelette with some sausage on the side.  As always a glass of juice and a couple of cups of coffee were added to it.  A perfect way to start the day.

First order of the day was a quick trip to Lowe’s for some bits and pieces to make jack

pads for Graybeard.  My friend Steve didn’t like the ones I was using and decided he could make a better mouse trap.  Actually, he wanted to take what I was using and make them better.  He had already done the same with his. So all of us, Barbara and myself as well as Steve and Patti took a short ride to the store.

Once finished there it was lunchtime so we moved over to Darrell’s Diner for a quick

lunch.  The food was good, the time spent together was even better.  Good friends one and all.

Back home time to make the jack pads.  Steve took the lead since he had already built several pairs for his rig.  All total it took about an hour from beginning to end and they are just what the doctor ordered.  Anything to make arrival and departure easier is a winner in my book.

I finally found the part to fix the bathroom door.  Don’t even ask what this 6 inch piece of piano hinge with springs cost.  It should be gold plated.  Should be here in about a week.

The day ended with the sun out and clear, well almost clear skies.  The temperature did get into the mid 60’s.  Now, though, at 9 pm the temperature is rapidly falling once again.  Yes, it is going to be a really cold night!

That was our day on The Road of Retirement.  A little bit of this and that and a whole lot of time spent with really good friends.  We will miss them when we leave here.  Thanks again for joining us and hope all is well with you.

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

  1. It was a cool one on the east coast also, but the sun was bright and felt good. If the wind wouldn’t have been so cold it would have been a great day. Well, it was a great day because of all we got to do and see. KSC is awesome. Been here before, but never get tired of it. Would like to see a picture of those pads you made. Enjoy your day.
