Home Is Where We Park It: Sharon Johnston Park

Temperature Morning 51 Degrees – Afternoon 74 Degrees


A Look At Our New Home

When we awoke this morning it was a wee bit chilly, at least for us.  Thankfully, we had pulled out the extra blanket and so until Marti got me up I was snug as a bug in a rug.  The day, though, warmed up quickly and so all was well.

I had so many little things I wanted to accomplish today but somehow the day got away from me and of the many items needing attention only one got done.  Ah well, there is always tomorrow.

Well, actually two got done.  I took the time to get out and about and take some pictures of our wonderful new home.

Here is my front lawn.  So green, so well taken care of,  properly cut.  Best part is, I don’t have to do a thing to keep it this way – I don’t even have to cut it.


And it’s the same with the back.  Absolutely beautiful and I don’t have to lift a finger to keep it this way.  What more could one ask for.


I have a wonderful pool.  Of course someone other than me is responsible for its upkeep.  I just get to enjoy it.


I have a guard on duty 7/24.  Never asks for a day off, nor for a pay raise.  It’s a comfort knowing he is always there, ever watchful.


I also have various lawn decorations, like this.  Can’t remember where I found this one.  Oh, that’s right it was here when I got here!


This is my rose and rock garden.  You ought to see it when it is in full bloom.  Again, I get to enjoy it but don’t have to take care of it.  I don’t even have to mulch it.


Less I forget, I also have a small lake fully stocked with fish.  It’s nice to just sit on it’s banks or drop a line in and drown a few worms.


So what you think?  How many can Boast of such a home?  I have this one and others in so many other locations.  We consider ourselves to be absolutely blessed beyond measure to have a home like this.  Thank you Lord for the privilege of being able to enjoy this beautiful world that you have created for us.

The other item I checked off?  I finally changed the air filter in Little Graybeard.  I know, wow, what a big job!

That was our day on The Road of Retirement.  Nothing earth shaking, nothing major just a day to kick back and enjoy the day and each other’s company.  That’s my kind of day.  The other items, they’ll be there tomorrow, or the day after, or maybe the day after that.  I’ll get to them.  Rule #2 of Retirement:  Never do today what you can put off till tomorrow.

Thanks for joining us today.  We’re glad you were part of our day.  Catch you 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!
