Temperature 69 Degrees – Rain, Thunder and Lightening


We awoke to the familiar sound of rain on the roof.  It’s been raining off and on for the last three days.  In addition the temperature has been down in the 60’s.  Overall it has been damp and cool.

But we kept at it and we finally finished a number of projects for this three week time period.

The paint room, all the paint has been consolidated and the floor has been cleaned, scrapped and repainted.

Two new Sunday School rooms have been cleaned out, the walls covered with new paint, and the doors also were repainted

Two units were repaired, repainted and a new bathroom installed in one in preparation for new clients

The three Ramada’s were reconstructed with new plywood and concrete backer-board and then repainted.

The toy room was cleaned out in preparation for new donations for this Christmas season

All doors and windows in the activity room were covered with Christmas decorations

Storage area behind the wood shop was cleaned out

Sandals, flip-flops, and other shoes were sorted and stored by size

Files were sorted and reorganized in the office

Six new picnic tables were assembled for use in the picnic area

In addition we’ve gathered Monday through Thursday in the morning for devotions.  We’ve gone out to supper each Thursday night as a team for supper.  We’ve struggled with the unexpected illness of three of our team members.  Most importantly we’ve become a family and new friendships were made that will last a lifetime.

This is what being a NOMAD is all about!

Our day on The Road of Retirement has come to an end.  Time now for some sleep since we once again have a 7 am flight to catch tomorrow.  We’re going back to Wellsboro for my Mom’s Memorial Service.  Please keep the family in your prayers this weekend.

Thanks for checking in with us again.  We always enjoy your company and your comments.  Quick note, the blog will be suspended until we return on Sunday evening.  Till then.

These are the voyages of  Graybeard and it’s two intrepid travelers.  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 never been before

See you on down the road!
