Places We Have Called Home In 2020/2021


January 29, 2021

Temperature 69 Degrees

Yo Yo Weather

One Appointment Scheduled

I Found Her!

Other Odds and Ends

This has been the oddest weather we have ever had while in Florida.  For several days we were in the 80’s during the day and the 60’s at night.  Now we’re in the 60’s during the day and the 30’s at night.  But wait, this weekend we’ll probably get up around 90 during the day only to plunge down to the 50’s on Monday and Tuesday.  I call it yo-yo weather.

Our big news is Ms Barbara was able to schedule an appointment for her vaccine shot.  Unfortunately, I was not able to get one.  However, I am now registered at four different sites so I’m confident that sooner of later I’ll hit the jackpot.  I have my fingers crossed.


Oh, what a wonderful clear blue sky today.  It was an absolutely beautiful day in Paradise.  A perfect day for a bike ride.


Look who I found today.  She’s been moved to a new site and is now dressed in Tennessee Volunter Football garb.


This is what she looked like a few days ago.  I’m trying to come up with a name for her but nothing comes to mind.  Any ideas?


Around the corner from our lady friend I came upon these lawn decorations.


Oh yes, a turtle.  I just had to take a picture.


Then there was this cute little puppy.


This one is even better.  I get such a kick out of seeing the talent that some people have.  When I see something like this I think of my friend Betty and all of the beautiful things she has created and shared on her blog.  She is one talented lady.


Do you notice anything unusual on the side of this rig?  How about the large clock?  Ms Barbara said Gee that would be nice.  Oh no, I nipped that one in the bud.


This is called one man’s work in progress.  He has Diamond Shield on the front of his rig even as I do.  For the past month he has been working to take it off.  I asked him when he thought he would be finished and he just shrugged his shoulders and said he wasn’t in any hurry.  I believe I’ll have someone take mine off.

Well, that was our day on The Road of Retirement.  We did get out and about since we had a few items we needed to purchase.  We played some Mexican Train which we’ll continue tonight.  Other than that we’re just taking each day as it comes and making the most of it.  We hope you are too.

Thanks for taking the time to read our blog.  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!


  1. Thank you for the compliment. 🙂 While I saw the turtle planter, I got a kick out of the dancing cactus! You have to think somebody with all those decorations really enjoys life! I think some like the big clock as it is a current trend on the HGTV home shows. However, being retired, most of the time I think we can just throw that clock right out the window! I am not sure about the Diamond shield part. Why would you want to take it off? Some of the RV front looks clean and the other dirty. Is he removing the dirty part? Our “diamond shield” on our travel trailer is a silver patterned area. In any case, good luck to the guy! Glad you are back on the bike! We’re just happy when it’s warm enough to walk outside. But, whatever the weather, every day is a gift from God, and like you, we try to make the best of it! Enjoy the weekend!


    1. The Diamond Shield is a clear protective film that once it becomes too dirty cannot be cleaned. From a distance the front looks great, but get up close and it is “ugly”. Once it gets to this point you can only take it off. It takes two guys an average of 12 hours to completely remove it. Not my kind of project. Have a great weekend.
