Places We Have Called Home In 2020


November 2, 2020

Temperature 75 Degrees, Humidity 68%

Cool and Crisp with a Strong North Wind

Doctor’s Appointments


What an absolutely beautiful day.  It was cool and crisp and not a cloud in the sky.  While some already have snow on the ground all we have is nice green grass.  It is cool, however, for Florida.  We’ve had a strong wind from the North for the past two days.   Yet, this is the kind of weather that we so enjoy.  Temperatures are normally in the seventies during the day and fifties during the night.  Excellent.

Brooksville VA Clinic - James A. Haley Veterans' Hospital - Tampa, Florida

This is where our day began, at the James A Haley VA Clinic in Brooksville.  I had two appointments, one at 9 am and the other at 9:01 am.  Unfortunately, the quality of care for vet’s here in Florida is dismal.  Remember I said I had two appointments?  Not with a doctor, oh no, with a nurse who asks a lot of questions and then sends you home.  Yes, they took my blood pressure and it was high.  Their recommendation?  Remember to take your blood pressure twice a day.  Like, how in the world is that going to correct the issue?  But that was their recommendation.  I believe I need to look for an actual medical doctor to work with.

Talin/Stone Vos are absolutely the very best - Interior & Exterior Care &  Renovations - Bill D's Monacoers

On the way home we stopped at Talin RV.  This is where we ordered our new patio awning, slide toppers and other awnings.  The date for installation has been set for Nov 30th through Dec 4th.  The big hold up has been the patio awning which was ordered from CareFree.  They are absolutely backed up and what they are producing has been going to the manufacturers in Elkhart.  Hopefully, we’ll have ours by the end of this month.  If not, well, we’ll figure it out then.

Note the RV in the picture above?  That will be us when it is our turn.  They are working on putting in RV sites behind the building but they aren’t finished yet.  So, that will be our home for the first week in December.  We’ll have 50 amp only but we’ll get by.


We were undecided as to whether we would replace this awning over our door.  But, we decided what’s in inch on an elephant!  This way both the patio awning and this awning will match.  We’ve also decided to replace our other awning on the driver’s slide.  Then, all three will match!


Time for lunch and this is the meal deal that we scored today.  We stopped at WalMart for a simple chicken to take home for our big meal.  Well, they had a fantastic deal, two rotisserie chickens, a pound of mashed potatoes with gravy, and a pound of mac and cheese for just ten dollars.  How could you go wrong!  We have enough food for a minimum of two if not three meals this week.  Sweet.

That was our day on The Road of Retirement.  We had a great day and finished it off in style by going out for ice cream this evening.  Tonight we’re bringing out the medium blanket since our overnight temperature is supposed to be in the mid to low forties.  But only for tonight.  Life is good.

Thanks for stopping by today.  We always appreciate your company as well as your comments and suggestions. Keep safe, keep healthy, live to the fullest 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!
