Temperature 87 Degrees, Humidity 78%
Not This Time
Remember how I said clouds like this are normal? Usually they blow over rather quickly. No storm, no rain.
Not this time! We got a soaker. But it came and went within thirty minutes. At least it dropped the humidity a whole bunch.
And left us with this beautiful rainbow.
Time for a few more amenities here at the park.
There’s the horseshoe pit
The Paddleboard court.
There are also golf carts to rent. With all the golf carts around here it often feels like one is in the Villages where golf carts probably out-number cars.
Projects for the day.
The first one was an easy one. I needed to clean the screens on the two vent fans.
The next one is a bit more involved. One of the outside lockers used to hold a TV which didn’t work. So I deep-sixed it and now in its place I want to install. . .
something like this in the now empty space.
First step, pulling out all the old stuff that was currently in the locker so I could see what I had to work with. Now that that is done I’ll sit down and put together some drawings of what I want to build so I know what I have to purchase. I believe I’m going to make it out of pine. Of course, I’m open to any and all suggestions at this point in time.
What else did we do today? Ms Barbara went back to the eye doctor. This time they injected dye into her eyes so they could take a closer look. At this point in time she is holding her own and no further action is needed. But the dye they used left her feeling nauseous and unable to see for the better part of the day.
I also went over to the lending library and obtained a new book.
Finally, what do you get when you take . . .
this and hitch it to . . .
this. What you get is . . .
one sweet looking ride. Oh, it’s for sale if anyone is interested.
So that was our day on The Road of Retirement. It was a great day from beginning to end. I started a new project. I grabbed a new book. Ms Barbara has finished with one more doctor. On now, like tomorrow, to yet another one. Unfortunately, no word yet as to when her knee surgery will be rescheduled. Then come Thursday we’ll roll out of here for a couple of days for scheduled maintenance at Cummins South of Ocala. We’re keeping busy in many different ways.
Thanks for stopping by today. We always appreciate your company as well as your comments and suggestions. Keep safe, keep healthy, enjoy the days that God gives you.
These are the voyages of Elvira and her 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!
