Places We Have Called Home In 2019

Home Is Where We Park It:   UMOM New Day Centers, Phoenix

Temperature 71 Degrees

Week Two, Day Three, We Solider On

Anniversary Dinner, A Bit Late But Worth The Wait

Another beautiful day to awake to.  What would this day hold?  What challenges would be before us?  What adventures would we be a part of?  Only one way to discover the promises and possibilities of the day, out of bed and embrace the day and live it to the fullest.

Let’s do this a bit backwards today.  We never did get to go out for our Anniversary Diner.  We corrected that tonight.

This is where we went for supper.

We started with this, enough for a family of four.  We brought a good bit of it home.

Aussie 4-Course

Then we went for the ever popular four course supper special.  It’s soup and salad, then your choice of favorite entree, and finally you finish with a piece of cheese cake.  Suffice to say we sort of just waddled out of the restaurant.

OK, back to the projects at hand.

Steve and his harem of strippers finished their given task.

No new toys or clothes came in today so sorting toys is on hold.

Old projects continued.

Shelves are going up.  Remember Keith, measure three times and cut once.

And Mark began to ponder Did we really put it up the right way?

Who says we need a shelf up here?  I’ll just hold the box.

We had other new projects to work on.

One more new project.

We had two picnic tables to sand and refinish.  Robin to the left, Bob to the right.

I know I put it here in this can.

Let there be paint.  Bob with the brush and Anton with the roller.

The finished table.

End Day Three.  We are ahead of schedule.  I’m sure they’ll find other projects for us to work on if we get all the others done.  In fact I know they will.

That was our day on The Road of Retirement.  It was another full day.   Another wonderful day.  Another day of living life to the fullest.  It doesn’t get any better than this.  Time to go.  I can’t seem to keep my eyes open any longer.

Thanks for coming along with us again.  We always enjoy your company and your comments.  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!
