Home Is Where We Park It:  Dade Battlefield Historical State Park

Time Seems To Be Standing Still

We’re slowly coming to the end of our time here.  But boy oh boy does it seem to be dragging.  I just can’t wait for jacks up and on the road again.  I know, I know have some patience.

Today we were back on the work schedule so it was up and at it.  It figures this is also the first cold morning we’ve had in the last week.  The temperatures are in the mid 50’s and the wind is howling out of the northeast.  Hat and sweatshirt time for sure.

Breakfast was a lowly bowl of Fruit Loops, a glass of juice and a couple of cups of coffee.  Not much time when we’re working for anything more.  Well, I guess there could be if we wanted to get up a bit earlier then we do.  But why?

Off we went to find out what there was to do.  Which amounted to a whole lot of nothing.  Police the parking lots.  Clean in front of the visitor center and lodge.  That was about it for the morning.  In the afternoon Barbara put in several hours working with Dade Youth cleaning up the lodge and finishing various craft projects they had previously started.

Terry and Trudy were also on the work schedule today but since there was nothing much to do they decided to leave today instead of tomorrow.  They are now on the road headed back to Kansas.  We wish them God speed and a safe trip.

While Barbara was at the lodge I puttered around Graybeard working on this and that on the Countdown List.  Today I was underneath securing a couple of heater hose lines that run back to the hot water heater.  I also had to check on the one leveling jack that appeared to have a leak where the hydraulic hose attached to it.  Thankfully, it was not a leak just some fluid that had seeped out of the hydraulic storage tank.

This evening we of course we watched the staples, Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune.  We really live an exciting life don’t we!  Soon now, soon and we will be seeing the sights of America again.  Yipee!

That was our day on The Road of Retirement.  Time now to dig out an extra blanket since the temperature is continuing to drop like a rock rolling downhill.  One more chilly night is what they are saying and then we’ll bounce back in the 60’s and 70’s at night.

Thanks again for coming along with us.  We always enjoy your company.  Till tomorrow then, goodnight.

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
