Amazon Came Calling

We Had To Park Her Bike For Now

We wanted to.  We planned to.  But we never did.  Go sightseeing that is.  We just never got ourselves in gear today.  Perhaps it had something to do with being up most of the night.  How about you?  Did you get any sleep last night?

But the day was not lost.  I finished yet one more book.  I’m glad the lending library is open tomorrow.  I will definitely make a visit.

I did complete one project.


The screen door was no longer opening nor closing smoothly.  Time for a minor adjustment of the hinges.  Thirty minutes later and all was well again.


One side of our block is now almost completely full.  There are just two sites empty, empty in the sense that there are trailers on site but no one home.  I’m told by others in the know that they will be here within the next two weeks.

I did learn something new about our site.  It would normally be occupied by a couple who make the trip here each year.  However, the husband had back issues this year and could not make the trip.  Though I don’t know him I do hope all goes well for him.

Amazon day.


I received a twelve pack of Strawberry Ice.


Ms. Barbara modeling her new slippers.  Oh yes, you need slippers in the morning because that tile floor is really cold in the morning.


She also received a new set of measuring cups.  I believe she now must have at least a dozen at this point in time!  Only kidding.



I’ve been looking long and hard for a way to keep hair and other stuff from clogging our shower drain.  I’ve tried all kinds of things but this I believe is the real answer.  It is a tub shroom and everything that I’ve read about it leads me to believe it will do the trick. Now I just need to find a way to spiffy up the drain itself.


One more new item, a nice new water bottle.


Unfortunately though the day started out on a great note it didn’t end so well.  We went out for a bke ride but Ms Barbara crashed and burned.  I was riding with her but was ahead of her and turned and saw her on the ground.  My heart stopped.  Before I could get back to her there had to be close to a dozen people from the park that were already around her.  I can’t thank them enough. One brought her home in their golf cart.  Another walked her bike back to our site.  She has a cut elbow and is bruised but otherwise she is OK.  So, for now her bike is parked indifinetly.

That was our day on The Road of Retirement.  We had a bit of a scare but thankfully all ended OK.  The good Lord definitely looks after us.

Thanks for checking in with us 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.
