A Great Afternoon With Great Friends

Goooooooooooood Morning World!

Cup of coffee in one hand and a muffin in the other I greeted another new day in Paradise.  One could easily get used to this wonderful life.  Why, I believe I have!

This morning I sat outside basking in the morning sun.  I spent the time reading another new book that I discovered in the library.  It’s my kind of book – large letters and short chapters.

Come afternoon,



our good friends Dennis and Pam came over to visit with us.  We have known each other for three years now.  The way we met?  Would you believe a New Jersey license plate was the beginning of our great relationship.

We were staying in the Escapees park in Bushnell our first winter in Florida.   While they were out walking one day they noticed we had New Jersey plates on our car and rig.  Since they were also were from New Jersey we got to talking and from that original conversation a friendship was begun that continues to this day. They are no longer on the road but now have a sticks and bricks home in Ocala.

We spent the afternoon talking about, well talking about just about anything and everything.  It was a fantastic way to spend an afternoon.  We always look forward to our times with them.  They are so precious to us.

On the menu today was Chinese from one of our favorite resturants.  For dessert


Ms Barbara made her first ever lemon meringue pie.  Take it from me, she nailed it, a perfect 10.  Bonus, there is plenty left for me to snack on throughout the rest of the week.  Yipee!

That was our day on The Road of Retirement.  A wonderful day from start to finish.  We are so grateful for days like these.  Days we will never forget.  Thank you Lord for friends like Dennis and Pam.

Thanks for checking in with us today.  We always appreciate your company, your comments, and your 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!
