Back Home Again
We’re home again. Hopefully, there will be no more trips in the near future to those nasty places where it is cold and rainy. Though, unfortunately, it appears a bit of that type of weather has slipped down this way.
It was great to have the whole family together again, though the reason for coming together was not the one we all would have hoped for. Saturday afternoon we came together for Mom’s Memorial Service. My sister Cindy delivered a beautiful and moving eulogy for mom. Later we gathered at her house as a family to hug, to remember and to support one another. As in the past my sister was the every gracious host.
Sunday afternoon found Barbara and myself back home in Phoenix. It was good to get back to shorts and T-shirts. That, however, the weather forecast says is going to change within a couple of days. By the weekend we’ll be down in the 30’s at night – at least for one or two nights. We’ll also be staying in the mid 60’s during the day. I’m OK with that.
Today, Monday, I didn’t make the bell for work. I was dragging, freezing cold and just could not get myself going. Thankfully, the others understood and sent me home. I spent the day in my pj’s and in bed most of the day. This evening I’m finally beginning to feel a whole lot better. I’ll be there tomorrow you can count on it.
What else is new? Not a whole lot. I finally ordered the last set of blinds for the rig – we had never replaced the one small shade in the bedroom. Today it decided to quit working so I could not procrastinate any longer. That’s about it. Exciting, hey?
That was our day on The Road of Retirement. A weekend of mixed emotions. A time to say to mom we’ll see you on down the road. A time to be with the whole family and support one another. Who knows when we will all be together again. Or where.
That’s it for now. Thanks for your company, your prayers, and your support over the last several weeks. Catch you tomorrow.
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!
