Happy Birthday America

How will you celebrate our nation’s birthday today?  With an outdoor barbecue?  Will you attend or watch a fireworks display?  Will there be a parade in your home town?  So many ways to celebrate the holiday.

But I believe above all else today should be a day to take a moment and reflect on the many freedoms we enjoy today because of the efforts and sacrifices of our forefathers.  What, indeed, do our personal freedoms mean to us?  Do we think for ourselves according to our convictions?  Do we exercise our freedom of religion?  Do we participate in our government on all levels?  Do we take the time to offer our opinions and feedback and votes to our elected officials?  Or do we just complain about what they have or haven’t done.  We have untold opportunities and freedoms and privileges.  So let’s celebrate with great fanfare.  Let’s show our patriotic pride.

Today was a day for us to just hang out.  We came here to visit the two museums that we’ve been to.  Now, it’s time to gather ourselves together and get ready to move again.  We’re going a bit further north into Ohio to visit another unusual museum that we stumbled across some time ago.

Till we leave I’ll be doing some preventive maintenance, cleaning windows, checking tire pressure and other little but important things like that.  Barbara is getting meals together that we can just reheat since Saturday and Sunday will be boondocking days.  Time to bring out the paper goods once again.

So that was our day on The Road of Retirement.  Not an earth shattering day but a day which we each enjoyed to the fullest.  Till tomorrow, have a good night.  Thanks for checking in with us.  We’ll catch up with 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!
