Places We Have Called Hone In 2019

Home Is Where We Park It:  Pin Oak Creek Campground, Union, Missouri

August 12, 2019

Actual Temperature 94 Degrees Heat Index 105

My Current T-Shirt Collection

Can you say hot?  This has been the hottest day we’ve had since we left New Orleans.  And it only gets hotter from this point forward.  We stayed put today because of the possibility of storms along our intended route.  Guess what?  They never developed.  Tomorrow?  No matter what happens we go.

I did a few things outside today, but not much.  The heat was just too much to stay outside for any length of time.  I was able to get the windshield and front windows cleaned.  Tire covers are off and packed.  Tire pressure was checked, we’re good.  Under the hood, all is A-OK.  First thing tomorrow morning I’ll get us disconnected from water and sewer.  Then we’ll get the slides in and jacks up.  Finally, we’ll disconnect the electric and we’ll be free from the mother ship.  

Since it was too hot for outside work I came inside and decided to reorganize my clothing drawers.  I also wanted to see hot big my t-shirt collection had grown to.  Usually, when we go someplace new and interesting if there is a T-shirt available I’ll buy one.  Not always but most times.  Here is my current collection.  I left out my older shirts and work shirts.  I currently have T-shirts from Florida, Maine, Tennessee, Kentucky, Louisiana, Alabama, Indiana, Pennsylvania and Ohio.  I wonder how many more I’ll have before the year is over!

Time now to put them all the way.  Barbara and I worked together and reorganized my clothing drawers and now I know where each and every one is located.  Before, well before with my way of organizing I had to hunt for a certain one.  No more.  Thanks sweetie.

Time now for some Mexican Train then I’ll start packing.  Our goal is to get out early before the heat starts to build and to get off the road also before it gets really hot during the mid part of the day.  Should be no problem since we have this moving gig down to a science.

That was our day on The Road of Retirement.  A great day again despite the heat.  We’re definitely so blessed and so thankful for each and every day we have.  Read something today that we both believe is so true:  Don’t marry someone you can live with, marry someone you can’t live without.  Truer words were never penned.

Time to run.  Thanks for joining us again.  We always enjoy your company and comments.  Catch you tomorrow.

These are the voyages of  Graybeard and it’s two human soul mates.  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!
